Browns, Weeden shake off picks, take halftime lead vs. Miami

Three of the Browns’ first-half drives ended in interceptions.

However, one finished in a touchdown, and that was enough to stake Cleveland to a lead at halftime against Miami on Sunday.

Tight end Jordan Cameron hauled in a seven-yard touchdown late in the second quarter, giving Cleveland a 7-6 edge after two quarters.

Now, about Brandon Weeden’s three interceptions.

One was on a 3rd down from the Miami 40 that ended up essentially as a coffin-corner punt, pinning the Dolphins at their one-yard line. The second pick clanged off of Greg Little’s hands and was picked by Dolphins cornerback Dimitri Patterson. Finally, the the last of his first-half interceptions deflected off Cameron’s hands and into the hands of Patterson, who made a diving catch.

All things considered, Weeden could have ended up with one pick — and that interception put Miami near its own endzone.

Weeden finished the first half with 12 completions on 21 attempts for 118 yards.

    He also could have ended up with 4 as Reshad Jones let one through his hands. Miami must take advantage of turnovers regardless.

    Hard to hang both tip/picks on Weeden. The one to Cameron was a little behind him, the one to Little was all on Little. The deep one to the goal line, like you say, was as good as a coffin corner punt & OK by me – just wish the defense would have turned it into 2 point like everyone else is doing today.

    browns are lucky to be playing a team that is equally inept

    Miami really needs to learn how to take advantage of turnovers.

    Right now it is hard to be a Dolphin Fan. Hope this poor effort of so few yards in the first half isn’t what the whole season looks like. Signed long time fan since 1969.
