CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Browns brought home a win in the season home opener against the Houston Texans Sunday.

Nick Chubb rushes 26 yards into the end zone. Browns lead 30 to 21.

Texans’ Mills hits Brandon Cooks for the 2-yard touchdown pass. The Browns still lead 24-21 in the fourth.

Malcolm Smith picks off Mills for the first turnover of the year for the defense. In return, the offense manages to put three more points on the board. Cleveland leads in the third, 24-14.

In the third, Mayfield hits Demetric Felton for the 33-yard touchdown. The Browns regain the lead 21-14.

Quarterback Davis Mills came in for Tyrod Taylor to start the second half. Taylor was not seen on the sideline at the start of the second half.

After returning to the game, Mayfield keeps it and rushes in the 5-yard touchdown to tie the game, 14-14, with a little over a minute left in the first half.

Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor takes it 16-yards for the touchdown. Houston leads 14-7.

After Baker Mayfield is intercepted, he tried to make the tackle and comes up injured. Shortly after being in the medical tent, Mayfield jogged to the locker room.

Turnovers are a momentum changer early in this game. Brown’s quarterback connected with Donovan Peoples-Jones who caught it before fumbling and the ball is recovered by former Brown Christian Kirksey.

The Texans respond as Tyrod Taylor hits Phillip Lindsay for the 22-yard touchdown. Browns and Texans tied, 7-7 with under six to go in the first.

On the second play of the game, receiver Jarvis Landry left the game with a knee injury. He is questionable to return.

After a muffed punt for the Texans gave the Browns the ball back, Andy Janovich punches in the 1-yard touchdown and the Browns lead 7-0 early in the first.

The Cleveland Browns are set to kickoff against the Houston Texans in the home opener as they look for their first win of the season.

The game is at 1 p.m. on CBS 19, followed by 5th Quarter on CW 43.
