Hoyer lost a fumble that led to a field goal in the third quarter and threw an interception in the fourth. He completed 16 of 41 passes for 215 yards and was sacked three times. This effort will likely start rekindling debate about how long first-round draft pick Johnny Manziel will stay on the sideline.
Hoyer now has six TDs and just one interception on the year. At this rate, it's unlikely we see Johnny Manziel anytime soon.
Hoyer has done a decent job through three games with a 97.5 passer rating and no interceptions, though he also has only three touchdowns.
Hoyer went 8 of 11 for 77 yards on the last drive and finished 24 of 40 for 204 yards and a TD.
Browns coach Mike Pettine picked Hoyer over Manziel to start the Sept. 7 at Pittsburgh, finally ending a competition that dragged through the summer. Hoyer is the choice for now, but the real test for him will be how long he keeps it from Manziel.
Wearing a brace, Hoyer moved well during the 30 minutes of practice open to media members on Tuesday. Hoyer, who injured his knee in his third start last season, is projected to be Cleveland's starter, but the team is expected to pick a quarterback early in next week's draft to provide competition at the pivotal position.
