Thursday's win moves the Browns into 1st place in the AFC North.
Despite an injury to the starting quarterback, the Browns rallied to win their third game of the season Thursday night.

In The Region:
The Browns are 3-2 on the season for the first time in 12 years after a big victory Thursday night. 
Quarterback Brandon Weeden replaced injured starter Brian Hoyer and rallied the Browns to a 37-24 win last night over the Buffalo Bills. It was their third straight win and they have temporarily moved into sole possession of first place in the AFC North.

Weeden threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Josh Gordon in the third quarter, while safety T.J. Ward intercepted a pass and returned it 44 yards for a touchdown with less than 2 minutes left in the game. Weeden says this team has a spark.

"We're a hungry, relentless football team," Weeden said. "This team is out to prove something. It's fun to come to work every single day with these guys because everybody means business. We're a close-knit group. To win one like this on a Thursday night on national television, it's big for that locker room." Weeden knew he needed to be ready to step up.
 
"Regardless of whether I was a starter or not, still being a quarterback on this football team eyes are still on you to see how you respond, how you react," Weeden said. "I knew I needed to stay hungry. I couldn't take any days off. I still needed to prepare. Still needed to watch tapes at night."

"You know Brandon came in and played real well," Chudzinski said. "I think the guys rallied around him. You know in the second quarter we got rolling and playing a lot better there. I can't say enough about Brandon coming in, in the situation he did, and he got the job done."
 
Chudzinski says the team showed a lot of heart.

"Another example of these guys just never quit, Chudzinski said. "They never flinched in this game. Things went wrong. Things not going good early. It was a back and forth game. Just a real good effort and a real good team effort."
 
The starting quarterback in the game, Brian Hoyer, sustained a potentially serious right knee injury on a scramble in the first quarter. The Browns are now off until next Sunday, when they host the Detroit Lions.
