We're off to a fast start in Cleveland. The Browns scored on their first possession, too, on a 77-yard, nine-play drive led by QB Jake Delhomme and capped by Peyton Hillis's nine-yard TD run for the score.
Delhomme completed passes on the first three plays on the drive and then got out of a third-and-goal from the 20 jam when Carolina's Sherrod Martin was flagged for a helmet-to-helmet hit at the goal line on a Browns receiver. That gave Cleveland an automatic first down at the Carolina 9, where Hillis swept left and ran it in.
