- Season Highlights -

Going into the 6th week of the '58 season the Browns were 5-0 and no one in the league knew how to stop Jim Brown - except the Giants. The Giants' gang-tackling efforts vs Jimmy Brown became more successful as the season wore on. New York beat the Browns in Cleveland and then still needed to beat them again in New York in the final game on the schedule to force a tie for the Eastern Championship! By winning 13-10 on Pat Summerall's FG in a driving snowstorm, the Giants secured a tie and forced Cleveland to return the following week for a post-season playoff. In that game, they held Jim Brown to only 8 yards rushing and won 10-0. It was a disappointing season for the Browns, who lost only to the Lions and all three games to the Giants.

This rare 44-minute B & W film, presented by Sohio and Carling Black Label beer, is now on DVD and is narrated by the old voice of the Browns, Ken Coleman. Shown are highlights from every game of the 1959 Browns season except the Redskin game in Washington. You'll see nice closeups of many of the Browns during pre-game warm-ups: Starting QB Milt Plum, Lou Groza, Jimmy Brown, Leroy Bolden, Bobby Mitchell, Ray Renfro, Jim Ray Smith, Walt Michaels, Dave Lloyd, Jim Shofner, Ken Konz, Galen Fiss, Vince Costello, Bob Gain, Don Colo, Junior Wren, Bill Quinlan, Bobby Freeman, Mike McCormack, Darrell Brewster, Walt Michaels, Lew and Preston Carpenter, Willie McClung and Dick Deschaine.
