Brandon Weeden (17-of-30, 217 YDS), at times, looked like a gunslinging surgeon this afternoon.
However, the first snap of the day resulted in Jamaal Charles (18 ATT, 165 YDS, TD) scampering 80 yards for a touchdown.
On the subsequent Kansas City drive, Dwayne Bowe (2 REC, 70 YDS) posted 70 yards on two receptions. But Ryan Succop thumped a 27-yard field goal off of the left upright, Cleveland took over and the Browns took over.
From that point on, the Dawg Pound cheered behind 30 unanswered points.
Fourth-round pick Travis Benjamin captured the lead for Cleveland, returning a Dustin Colquitt punt 93 yards—a Browns record—for the touchdown.
Cleveland laid claim to the air. Josh Gordon continually answered the call, contributing 86 yards on his eight catches. Greg Little also chipped in 69 receiving yards.
Next week, the Kansas City Chiefs (2-11) will renew their annual trip to the Black Hole and slug it out with the Oakland Raiders (3-10). Riding a three-game win streak, the Cleveland Browns (5-8) will host Robert Griffin III's Washington Redskins (7-6).
