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.

Without two of their top cornerbacks Joe Haden and Buster Skrine, the Browns were 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.

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