Hoyer leads resurgent Browns past Bengals

CLEVELAND -- Brian Hoyer, the local kid who always dreamed of being Cleveland's quarterback, threw two touchdown passes in his first start at home to lead the Browns to a 17-6 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

Hoyer's 1-yard touchdown pass to running back Chris Ogbonnaya with 4:54 left gave the Browns (2-2) an 11-point lead, and Cleveland turned it over to its vastly improved defense.

In his second start in place of injured Brandon Weeden, Hoyer completed 25 of 38 passes for 269 yards. He threw a 2-yard touchdown pass in the first half to tight end Jordan Cameron, who had 10 catches for 91 yards.

The Bengals (2-2) couldn't get anything going on offense. Andy Dalton was intercepted by Buster Skrine with 3:43 left, ending any chance of a comeback.

Cleveland limited the Bengals to 63 rushing yards, and cornerback Joe Haden contained wide receiver A.J. Green.
