Browns vs. Colts score: Cleveland cuts into Indianapolis lead heading into 4th quarter

The Cleveland Browns cut into the Indianapolis Colts' lead and trail 17-13 heading into the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Brandon Weeden found Josh Gordon for a 33-yard touchdown pass on the first touch for the Browns' offense, and just three minutes into the second half, Cleveland had cut the Indianapolis lead to 14-13. Weeden went 4-for-4 on the drive for all 80 yards as the run game continued to produce little.

After three quarters, Cleveland has only rolled up 34 rush yards. Rookie running back Trent Richardson has not come onto the field in the second half after rushing eight times for eight carries in the first. He was on the sidelines with his helmet off, but was playing with a hurt rib.

Indianapolis pushed the lead to 17-13 with Adam Vinatieri's 38-yard field goal with 3:24 to play in the third quarter.

The Colts are beginning to extend the time of possession difference because of the Browns' inability in the run game. Going into the fourth, they have had the ball for eight more minutes than Cleveland.
