Browns Surprise Minnesota

September 22, 2013 Updated Sep 22, 2013 at 7:45 PM EDT

MINNEAPOLIS -- The young running back was traded away, the third - stringer was picked to start at quarterback, and Cleveland's jaded fan base was already pushing this week for the first pick in next year's draft.

The Browns haven't given up on the season, though. Brian Hoyer threw for three scores in his second career start, and the Browns became the latest team to torch Minnesota's struggling secondary, which lost top cornerback Chris Cook to a groin injury in the first quarter. Hoyer overcame three interceptions to throw for 321 yards, going 30 for 54. Josh Gordon had 10 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown in his season debut, and Cameron had six receptions for 66 yards. This was Cleveland's first game since it traded away last year's top draft pick, Trent Richardson, to Indianapolis earlier in the week.
