Just when it seemed as if the Oakland Raiders had seized the momentum, Sheldon Brown took it right back and then watched Brandon Weeden and the Cleveland offense put away a second straight win.
Weeden threw for a career-high 364 yards and a touchdown and made key plays on the clinching 94-yard drive after Brown's interception and the Browns snapped a 12-game road losing streak by beating the Oakland Raiders 20-17 on Sunday.
The Raiders (3-9) were in position to tie or take the lead when Brown intercepted Carson Palmer's pass to Juron Criner. But it was the drive by Weeden that truly put the game away.
''Probably a defining drive of the season,'' Brown said. ''We had an opportunity to see the character of that offense.''
Trent Richardson capped the drive with a 3-yard run, Weeden hit fellow rookie Josh Gordon on a 44-yard score in the second quarter and Phil Dawson kicked two field goals as the Browns (4-8) won consecutive games for the first since September 2011.
