Old friend Willis McGahee had to work at it, but eventually he tied the game up for the Cleveland Browns tonight against the Buffalo Bills.
McGahee capped a lengthy, 14-play, 74-yard touchdown drive that chewed up 7:10 off the clock in the second quarter by just getting across the goal line for a 1-yard touchdown run that tied the game, 10-10.
McGahee’s touchdown plunge came on third and goal after he was stopped for no gain on two straight plays.
The Browns took the lead just 1:11 later on a spectacular 79-yard punt return by Travis Benjamin.
Stevie sidelined: Bills receiver Stevie Johnson missed most of the second quarter while having his lower back examined by team trainers on the sideline. Johnson checked himself out of the game and looked to be in considerable pain on the sideline. He returned for a third-down play late in the quarter, but then was not on the field for the Bills’ next series. The Bills announced his return as doubtful.
Confusing challenge: The Bills were charged a timeout after coach Doug Marrone tried to use a challenge after an incomplete pass to Browns tight end Jordan Cameron. Safety Da’Norris Searcy was flagged for illegal contact on the play for the Bills.
