“It was just some great blocking up front,” Turner said. “I saw a hole and exploded through there. The easy part was just to run.”
Turner was tackled at Cleveland’s 12-yard line by safety Abraham Elam.
“I was throwing guys off of me so I didn’t see him until the last second, toward the end of the play,” Turner said. “I was hoping that I was able to finish the run off.”
His previous rushing high this season was the 114 yards he gain against New Orleans on Sept. 26.
It was the first time this season that the Browns have allowed a 100-yard rusher.
Dating back to last season, the Browns had gone six straight games without allowing a 100-yard rusher.
Since 2008, Turner has averaged 92.3 yards per game, which ranks third in the NFL during that time.
Despite his heroics, Turner wanted to talk about Kroy Biermann’s touchdown run.
“He batted the ball, caught the ball and got up and scored,” Turner said. “That’s the trifecta right there.”
He didn’t see if Biermann had the ball “high and tight” like a running back.
” I was just waiting on him to get across that goal line,” Turner said.
The offense perked up with the 45-yard touchdown pass to Roddy White.
“We were moving the ball, but not putting any points on the board,” Turner said. “Finally, we got one touchdown and we saw that it killed their momentum on their side of the field.”
Some of the Cleveland folks thought the Browns were in trouble when they had to play Jake Delhomme after Seneca Wallace was injured.
“I think the touchdown, the deep pass, took more out of them than the quarterback getting hurt.”
