Brian Hoyer didn’t jump into the Dawg Pound or celebrate on the field.
He had somewhere else in mind.
After throwing a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, Cleveland’s quarterback immediately ran to the sideline eager to include defensive teammates Donte Whitner and Joe Haden in the fun. After all, they were the ones who made it possible.
“No one cares who gets credit for a win,” Hoyer said following Cleveland’s 23-13 victory over Oakland. “We just want to win.”
One week after a humiliating loss, the Browns (4-3) weren’t going to be embarrassed again.
Hoyer threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Hawkins early in the fourth period, shortly after safety Whitner’s big hit on Oakland running back Darren McFadden forced a fumble that was caught in the air by Haden and returned 34 yards.
