(8:35pm) - The Browns extended their lead to 17-13 on Billy Cundiff's 22-yard field goal with :09 left in the first half. The kick capped a 12-play, 66-yard drive.

Earlier on the drive, Bears cornerback Demontre Hurst was whistled for a 38-yard pass interference penalty, giving the Browns a first down at the Chicago 42.

Gould puts Bears up 13-7

(8:05pm) - The Bears increased their lead to 13-7 on Robbie Gould's 23-yard field goal with 7:20 left in the second quarter. The kick was set up by Santonio Holmes' 30-yard punt return to the Cleveland 40.

Holmes gets in end zone

(7:53pm) - The Bears took a 10-7 lead on David Fales' 32-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes with 13:01 left in the second quarter.

On third-and-14, Holmes caught the ball at the 24, spun away from cornerback Justin Gilbert and raced into the end zone, capping a six-play, 52-yard drive.

The TD came after the Bears defense generated a takeaway as cornerback Al Louis-Jean forced a fumble by running back Terrance West that was recovered by safety M.D. Jennings at the Chicago 48.


First Quarter:

Gould misses kick

(7:43pm) - Robbie Gould's 52-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right with :46 left in the first quarter.

The kick came after quarterback David Fales was sacked by Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo for a 13-yard loss back to the Cleveland 34.

The big play on the drive was a 32-yard reception by Josh Bellamy, who leaped high over cornerback Leon McFadden to haul on Fales' pass.

Browns respond

(7:30pm) - The Browns answered the early Bears field goal by taking a 7-3 lead on Ben Tate's 1-yard TD run with 5:01 left in the first quarter. The score capped a 13-play, 85-yard drive.

It appeared the Bears had forced the Browns to turn the ball over on downs. On fourth-and-one from the Chicago 3, linebacker Jerry Franklin dropped fullback Ray Agnew for no gain on a pass reception. But safety M.D. Jennings was penalized for roughing the passer for leading with the crown of his helmet, giving Cleveland an automatic first down.

Quarterbacking the Browns' No. 1 offense, Brian Hoyer completed 6 of 8 passes for 69 yards on the drive.

Bears take early lead

(7:20pm) - Robbie Gould's 39-yard field goal on the game's opening drive gave the Bears a 3-0 lead over the Browns with 11:19 left in the first quarter.

The key play on the possession was a 37-yard pass interference penalty against cornerback Leon McFadden on a deep pass from David Fales to Josh Bellamy. The Bears settled for the field goal after Fales and Santonio Holmes failed to connect on third-and-four.

The Bears are not playing any of their starters in tonight's game, while the Browns are opening with their first-teamers on both sides of the ball.
