ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel took over in the fourth quarter against the Buffalo Bills after starter Brian Hoyer threw his second interception.

And promptly led his team to a touchdown in a 26-10 loss.

Manziel entered with 12:01 left in the fourth quarter, and Cleveland trailing 20-3. Manziel then capped an eight-play, 80-yard drive with a 10-yard touchdown run.

He came in after Hoyer was intercepted by Da'Norris Searcy and Buffalo's Dan Carpenter hit a 34-yard field goal.

It was his first appearance Week 3, when he had a few plays in a 23-21 loss to Baltimore. Manziel ran for 3 yards on the first play from scrimmage. He then completed his first NFL pass on the next play, a 12-yard completion to Miles Austin.

He finished 5 for 8 for 63 yards in the loss and rushed for 13 yards.
