Redskins lead Browns, 7-3, at halftime


LANDOVER, Md. -- It's safe to say both the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins are not enthusiastic about their performances so far in the first half.

The Redskins added a late touchdown from running back Evan Royster before the half and lead, 7-3, as the teams walk into the locker room.
All eyes are on Cleveland's quarterback competition, but it's been the Browns' defense that has shown up in a big way on ESPN.

Craig Robertson recovered a fumble, Joe Haden picked off a Robert Griffin III pass and the Browns' defense had a pivotal, fourth-down goal line stand, stuffing Alfred Morris short of the end zone. Tashaun Gipson added an interception late in the second quarter which led to a Billy Cundiff field goal.
On offense, Brian Hoyer went 2-for-6 for 16 yards passing. Johnny Manziel went 2-for-7, for 29 yards. Neither threw an interception. Ben Tate posted 51 yards on 10 carries.

We'll have much more after the game.
