CLEVELAND — As the ball floated toward the sideline it would never reach, quarterback Brandon Weeden was spun into the FirstEnergy Stadium turf.

CLEVELAND — The Browns’ fourth-ranked defense had Calvin Johnson under control and for the first half contained Reggie Bush. The second half was a whole different story.
