The Browns' defense got off to an ugly start, allowing an opening-drive touchdown by the Vikings to go down 7-0 right away. Cleveland's offense proceeded to go three-and-out. It looked like a disaster could be in the works.
But then, the Browns' defense forced a three-and-out, and Cleveland responded with a touchdown-scoring drive of their own, capped off with a 47-yard touchdown pass from Brian Hoyer to the returning Josh Gordon. That made it 7-7, and that's where we stand heading into the second quarter, with Cleveland on the move again.
