St. Louis vs. Cleveland: Report Card Grades for the Browns
USA TODAY Sports

Brian Hoyer finally threw for a touchdown, and Johnny Manziel ran in a score to ignite the home crowd as the Cleveland Browns fell 33-14 to the St. Louis Rams.

Oh, and Twitter exploded when Rams rookie Michael Sam sacked Manziel not once, but twice. As has become the custom when an opposing defender takes down Johnny, Sam flashed the money sign.

Without two of their top cornerbacks, Joe Haden and Buster Skrine, the Browns defense was beat early and often by three of the four St. Louis quarterbacks.

The Rams limp out of town with several injuries, including one to franchise quarterback Sam Bradford.

Bradford had to be helped to the dressing room after Browns defensive end Armonty Bryant rolled onto his left leg during first-quarter action.

The takeaway from this loss is that this Cleveland club needs to get better in nearly every area.

A plus was that the kick return special teams unit was effective as three of the five returners galloped back runs for over 35 yards.
