The Cleveland Browns made it three wins on the spin with a resounding 30-7 triumph over the struggling Kansas City Chiefs in Ohio.

Trent Richardson scored on a pair of one-yard runs for Cleveland to tie Jim Brown's franchise record of touchdown runs by a rookie in a season with nine.

The Browns, who are now 5-8 for the year under coach at Shurmur, already have one more victory than last season, as well as their longest winning streak since 2009.

The Chiefs actually broke the deadlock on the opening offensive play of the contest, tail-back Jamaal Charles galloping 80 yards into the end zone.

However, that was as good as it was to get for Kansas City - they failed to muster another point and saw wide receiver Dwaye Bowe sidelined by injury.

The Browns got off the mark with a Phil Dawson field goal before they a superb special teams play kicked them into gear, rookie Travis Benjamin's returning a punt 93 yards to give the home team the lead.

Richardson extended Cleveland's lead at the start of the third quarter when he capped a 60-yard, seven-play drive by going in from close range.

He repeated the feat in the following quarter, the Browns having taken over six minutes off the cock before their running back plunged into the end zone.

Dawson also slotted over six more points in a one-sided second half, connecting on efforts from 24 and then 34 yards out.
