The difference in the contest was certainly the Browns' defense and Travis Benjamin. Until he left with injury, the Browns' defense forced E.J. Manuel into bad decisions all game long.
Benjamin, who broke the Browns single-game record for punt return yards, set the offense up with great field position constantly and even took one to the house for a score.
Brandon Weeden played admirably in place of Hoyer, going 13-for-24 for 197 yards and touchdown. Willis McGahee carried the load on the ground rushing 26 times for 72 yards and a touchdown.
The Browns advance to 3-2 while the Bills fall to 2-3 on the season.
Once again, the final score was Cleveland 37, Buffalo 24.
