CLEVELAND -- Like he always pretended to do his backyard, Brian Hoyer guided the Browns to victory. 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 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 finished 25 of 38 for 269 yards and no interceptions. 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 and Andy Dalton was intercepted by Buster Skrine with 3:43 left, ending any chance of a comeback.
