Third-string QB Hoyer helps Browns stun Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS -- Jordan Cameron caught three touchdown passes, including the go-ahead grab in the back of the end zone with 51 seconds left, and the Cleveland Browns kept the Minnesota Vikings winless with a 31-27 victory Sunday.

Third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for three Cleveland touchdowns, making the Browns (1-2) the latest team to torch Minnesota's depleted secondary. Hoyer overcame three interceptions to pass for 321 yards, going 30-for-54 passing.

Cleveland's Josh Gordon had 10 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown in his season debut. Cameron had six receptions for 66 yards.

Quarterback Christian Ponder ran for two touchdowns for the Vikings (0-3), but he threw an interception, lost a fumble and took his sixth sack on the final play of the game.
