Wide receiver Josh Gordon dropped what could have been a huge play on Cleveland's first offensive possession, and then a punt return set the Bills up with great field position. They tried a little trickey with a receiver throwing a pass into the end zone, and Joe Haden was flagged on a questionable pass interference call. From there, the Bills punched it in with Fred Jackson for a 1-yard touchdown run to go up 7-0 early.
On the next drive, Brian Hoyer had the Browns on the move...but suffered a knee injury and had to leave the game. Ouch. Brandon Weeden came in, pass protection broke down, and the Browns had to punt. The defense bent enough on the next drive to allow a 52-yard field goal, making it 10-0 Bills lead.
