Crowell contributed 54 yards on 11 carries and added one catch for three yards in the win. Included among his critical contributions were five carries for 32 yards on a touchdown drive in the third quarter.
His Browns will try to make it two in a row next Sunday when they host Baltimore.
Crowell showed a strong burst by rushing for 32 yards on five attempts with two touchdowns. He bolted in from three yards out in the third quarter and hit the hole hard for a 15-yard score four minutes later. He added a 16-yard run in the fourth to key a drive that tied the game at 27-27.
He will attempt to visit the end zone again Sunday against New Orleans.
Crowell appears set to make the team ahead of Lewis, who lost last season to injury. Lewis averaged 4.8 YPC in limited action for Philadelphia in 2011 and 2012.
At Alabama State last year, Crowell averaged 6.6 yards per carry while rushing for 1,121 yards and 15 touchdowns.
