OAKLAND, Calif. -- Brandon Weeden threw for a career-high 364 yards and one touchdown, and the Cleveland Browns did just enough to stop a 12-game road losing streak by beating the Oakland Raiders 20-17 on Sunday.
Weeden hit fellow rookie Josh Gordon on a 44-yard score in the second quarter, and Trent Richardson scored on a 3-yard run after Sheldon Brown made a key interception deep in Cleveland territory when Oakland (3-9) was driving for the potential tying or go-ahead score in the fourth quarter.
It all added up to the first road win for the Browns (4-8) since they beat the Indianapolis Colts 27-19 on Sept. 18, 2011. The skid started a few weeks later with a loss in Oakland and went deep into this season.
