The first half offense was ugly for the Cleveland Browns. Everything was out of sync between the quarterbacks and the wide receivers, and you got the sense that the switching between quarterbacks did more harm than good. Even with the defense getting three turnovers and setting Cleveland up with some good field position, the Browns were only up 3-0 near the end of the first half. When QB Brian Hoyer finally got his first completion, FB MarQueis Gray fumbled the ball. Lovely.
The Redskins got a last-second rushing touchdown against a mix of first- and second-stringers on the Browns' defense, giving them a 7-3 lead heading into the half. It remains to be seen whether Hoyer or QB Johnny Manziel will see action to start the third quarter.
