The Browns receive the ball to start what turns out to be an interesting chain of events on the night. Crowell takes the first snap and carries it for 5 yards.On 3rd and 5 on CLE 31, Manziel fake snaps drawing JJ Watt off sides to get an easy first down. Balancing between some decent runs from Crowell and some key passes, the Browns work their way up the field to the HOU 27 before having to settle for a field goal, Jordan Okafor connects on the 44 yarder. Houston takes the field and Ryan Mallet is off on his first pass to Griffin, following passes to Hopkins and Johnson gain Houston around 8 yards before having to punt the football. CLE has a quick 3 and out and punt the ball back to Houston. Houston begins moving the ball, relying mostly on the pass for the rest of the first quarter. Houston leans on the run to start the second quarter, before Griffin drops a key pass on 3rd down. Highly chased in free agency Tucker has no problem hitting the 43 yarder. The Browns continue to try to get a run game going but at risk of having another 3 and out, Manziel connects with Arrington for 13 yards. The Browns keep their passing attack going until Newsome takes the ball 21 yards and gets stopped on the HOU 3. Crowell takes it the rest of the on a 3 yard carry. 10-3 Cleveland. The Browns force another quick 3 and out on Houston and take the ball back on their own 20. Manziel missed Arrington on 1st down, but hits him wide open for a 48 yard catch. Their next set of downs doesn't go as well and ends even worse with Okafor shanking a 46 yard FG. Luckily however, the Browns defense are able to force Houston to punt after 3 incomplete passes from Ryan Mallet. With 3:03 left in the first half, Manziel throws his first interception on first down. Ryan Mallet comes out and throws one of his own on their first play. Manziel hits Arrington for 14 yards, but then sails a ball way over Gordon and harris is there for the easy pick. The Browns look like they are in trouble as Houston starts making some huge passes all the way to CLE 12. Houston looking to for the TD, but Mallet misses his target and Desir takes the pick. Manziel hits Gordon and Harvin for a combined 25 yards to get into field goal position, but.... Okafar shanks another field goal, this one from 46 yards. Cleveland has the lead 10-3 at half time. Houston and Cleveland struggle offensively to start the 3rd quarter, both having quick 3 and outs until Cleveland's passing attack carries them all the way to the Houston 9 where Cameron drops an easy TD on a key 3rd down, Okafor miraculously hits the 26 yard field goal. Cleveland lead 13-3 entering the 4th quarter. The first play of the 4th quarter, Ryan Mallet throws towards the end zone but Skrine takes the spectacular interception in the end zone (wish I had a pic of this, but Madden didn't give me a highlight ). The Browns lean on their running game again trying to kill as much time off the clock as possible, only throwing it on 3rd down to keep the chains moving. Arrington with a 7 yard reception, sets the Crowell up for an easy touchdown, Cleveland lean 20-3 with 3:24 left in the game. Houston breaks out their own passing attack, but Mallet misses his first target and Joe Haden makes a snag for the ball, giving Cleveland another possession. After a quick 3 and out, Okafor keeps interest in the game and misses another field goal, this one from 42 yards. Houston fights their way up to the CLE 35, looking to put up a quick scoring drive, but Ryan Mallet's pass falls into the hands of Joe Haden once again. The Browns run the final seconds off the clock securing their first win of the season. Browns move to 1-2 with MIA next week and NYJ the week after before the BYE. Browns hope to keep this momentum going and take on their first winning record since Coach Blankenship has taken the helm.
