Best Of Social Media: Week 10 Browns vs PatriotsBrian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots returned home on Sunday to take on the Cleveland Browns who also came into the matchup with an identical 5-4 record.

Notable lineup changes saw tackle Trent Brown return to the offensive line for the first time since week one after sustaining a calf injury and rookie Rhamondre Stevenson starting at running back due to Damien Harris recovering from a concussion he sustained last week.

Take a look at all of the best postings and moments shared across social media before, during, and after the game below by members of the team and local media below.


In the first quarter, the Browns struck first when quarterback Baker Mayfield found tight end Austin Hooper to give the visitors an opening drive 7-0 lead. Running back D’Ernest Johnson led the way for Cleveland thanks to his 58 rushing yards on the drive. That yardage was the second-most ever given up by the Patriots on an opening drive under Bill Belichick.

Despite the tough start, the Patriots like many other times this season weren’t phased and responded with their longest opening touchdown drive in the Belichick era.

Quarterback Mac Jones would find Hunter Henry to knot the game at seven all through one-quarter of play.

The Browns looked to respond back to open the second quarter, but second-year safety Kyle Dugger’s strong season continued when he picked off Mayfield to set up the Patriots first lead of the day.

A Rhamondre Stevenson rushing touchdown put the Patriots ahead 14-7 and they wouldn’t look back.

Midway through the second quarter, Mac Jones continued to pick apart the Browns defense.

The dime to Jakobi Meyers helped set up what may be the best throw and catch of the season (so far) for the Patriots on this touchdown pass by Jones to Kendrick Bourne.

The touchdown to Bourne plus an additional Nick Folk field goal gave the Patriots a commanding 24-7 lead heading into halftime.

As both teams returned to the field for the second half, life didn’t get much better for the Browns offense as the Patriots defense continued to shut them down.

The Patriots offense meanwhile, continued to shine as they looked to put the game away.

A Rhamondre Stevenson rushing score, his second of the day, pushed the Patriots lead to 31-7 through three quarters.

The dominance by New England on all phases continued into the fourth, as Mac Jones iced the win with his first career three-touchdown game.

Now leading 38-7 with seven to go in the fourth quarter, Jones’ day was over as Brian Hoyer stepped in under center to finish it off.

Despite the game being now well out of reach, the play of the day came in garbage time when at long last Jakobi Meyers found the end zone for the first time in his career as his teammates and fans erupted in celebration.

The Patriots would go on to defeat the Browns by a final score of 45-7 to win their fourth game in a row.
