Late field goal hands Browns win over Bears

CHICAGO -- Brian Hoyer threw for 307 yards and came on down the stretch and the Cleveland Browns closed out the preseason with an 18-16 victory over the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

Hoyer was intercepted twice. But he also led the Browns on a 76-yard touchdown drive that made it a one-point game in the fourth quarter.

Punter Spencer Lanning kicked a 40-yard field goal with just over three minutes left following a fumble by Harvey Unga to make it 18-16.

Jordan Palmer dominated the first half for the Bears.

Robbie Gould then missed a 57-yarder wide right with just over a minute left, and the Bears lost after leading most of the way.
