Whittaker hauled in two receptions for 38 yards, the majority of which came on his touchdown. He scored from 35 yards out in the fourth quarter to give the Browns their lone score of the game.
Whittaker made much more of an impact through the passing game this season, where he finished with 155 yards on 21 receptions. He added 79 yards on 28 carries.
