The Cleveland Browns topped the Buffalo Bills last night, 37-24. The Bills raced out to a 10-0 lead behind a Fred Jackson one-yard touchdown run early in the first. Cleveland lost quarterback Brian Hoyer to a knee injury in the early part of the game, but Brandon Weeden stepped in and helped the Browns take the lead at the half with 17 unanswered capped off by a Travis Benjamin 79-yard punt return for a touchdown. However, Buffalo came storming out of the gates in the second half on a pair of touchdown runs from C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. But the Browns responded with a 37-yard touchdown pass from Weeden to Josh Gordon to tie it in the third. Then, in the fourth, Cleveland dominated with a pair of field goals and then a T.J. Ward 44-yard pick six to give the Browns their third win in a row. Cleveland now hosts the Detroit Lions next Sunday at 1.
In MLB playoff baseball yesterday, St. Louis dominated the Pittsburgh Pirates, 9-1 and the LA Dodgers handled Atlanta, 6-1.
