an ongoing bid to upgrade their pass rush after an embarrassing season-opening
loss at Baltimore.The Bills also announced Monday they have released defensive
tackle Adolphus Washington Cheap
Greg Joseph Jersey
, the team's 2016 third-round draft pick.Orchard
had five sacks in 34 games over the previous three seasons with Cleveland. He
was selected by the Browns in the second round of the 2015 draft and cut by
Cleveland on Sept. 1.The move comes a day after Buffalo's defense struggled by
giving up six touchdowns and sacked Ravens starter Joe Flacco once in a 47-3
loss at Baltimore. It was the second-most lopsided loss in Bills
history.Washington started 21 games over his first two seasons but became the
odd-man out as part of an offseason overhaul. Buffalo signed veteran defensive
tackle Star Lotulelei in free agency and selected Stanford's Harrison Phillips
in this year's draft.Buffalo hosts the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Jon
Gruden smiled as soon as Matt McCrane's kick sailed through the uprights.After
nine years in the broadcast booth, three straight weeks of blown second-half
leads and a roller-coaster game that featured three lead changes and 38 points
after the start of the fourth quarter, Gruden finally won his first game in
3,591 days."It feels like my first win in 100 years," he said. "It's great to be
back."Derek Carr threw four TD passes and a game-tying 2-point conversion with
30 seconds left in regulation to set up McCrane's 29-yard field goal in overtime
that gave the Raiders a come-from-behind 45-42 win over the Cleveland Browns on
Sunday.McCrane missed a 50-yard field goal on the opening possession of overtime
in his NFL debut and a 47-yarder earlier in the game before getting another
chance when Carr drove the Raiders (1-3) back down the field again after a
defensive stop for the game winner with 1:46 left in the period."As soon as I
saw it, it was an exciting feeling," McCrane said. "I've been working hard. It's
something that I wanted as a kid ,
to play in the National Football League."The field goal dealt the Browns (1-2-1)
another tough loss as they blew a 14-point lead in the second half and then
allowed to get the game-tying TD and 2-point conversion in the final seconds of
regulation to spoil Baker Mayfield's NFL starting debut .Mayfield, the No. 1
overall pick, threw for 295 yards and two touchdowns to put Cleveland on
position to win but also committed four turnovers, losing two fumbles and
throwing two interceptions, including one that Gareon Conley returned 36 yards
for a TD .The Browns were seeking their first back-to-back wins since November
2014 after snapping a 19-game winless streak by beating the Jets last week."I'm
tired of growing pains," coach Hue Jackson said. "I think we can do those things
better. Those things hadn't reared their ugly head until now. We can do better.
Baker can do better. Our offense can do better. Special teams can do better,
defense can do better. So ,
we've got to play better.Carr threw for 437 yards, Marshawn Lynch ran for 130
yards for his most productive game in four years, and Amari Cooper (128 yards)
and Jared Cook (110) each topped the 100-yard mark.The Browns broke out to a
28-14 lead midway through the third quarter only to fall behind 34-28 early in
the fourth thanks in part to Mayfield losing two fumbles deep in his own
territory to set up TD passes by Carr.But the Raiders squandered a
fourth-quarter lead for the second straight week, falling behind 42-34 after
Mayfield's 59-yard pass to Antonio Callaway set up Carlos Hyde's 1-yard run and
rookie Nick Chubb ran 41 yards for his second long TD of the game.It looked as
if that would decide the game when the Browns forced Carr into two incompletions
from the 9 with under two minutes left to lead to a turnover on downs.Cleveland
appeared to be in position to run out the clock when Hyde converted a first
down, but a replay review determined he was down just short of the marker and
the Browns punted."That was huge," Hyde said. "That was a chance to put the game
away right there. Definitely. That was a game-changer right there."Carr then
engineered a 53-yard touchdown drive capped by a 7-yard pass to Jared Cook with
30 seconds to play. The Raiders still needed the 2-point conversion to tie it
and they got it when Jordy Nelson came down with a fade despite physical
coverage by ex-Raider TJ Carrie.Carr has 14 fourth-quarter comebacks but just
two since his breakthrough season in 2016 when he did it seven times."It did
feel like the old times," he said. "The way we did that Cheap
Myles Garrett Jersey
, it helps our team going forward to know what
it takes."CHUBB'S RUNSChubb had just three carries on the day, but the first
went for a 63-yard score in the second quarter and the last went for 41 yards
and another TD. He finished with three carries for 105 yards.GO FOR 2Jackson
went for a 2-point conversion twice in the first half. Mayfield's pass to
Callaway was incomplete on the first attempt before Duke Johnson ran in the
second try to make it 17-7.QUICK WHISTLEThe Raiders were upset by a quick
whistle that possibly cost Lynch a long TD run. Lynch ran left and linebacker
Joe Schobert tried to tackle him but Lynch appeared to spin out of it without
going to the ground. He kept running for what could have been a 75-yard TD but
the play was blown dead.The Browns were hurt by a quick whistle in the fourth
quarter when Carr was ruled in the grasp, negating a fumble recovery that might
have resulted in a TD.INJURIESBrowns S Terrance Mitchell left the game with a
broken arm in the first half. ... Raiders RT Donald Penn left in the second half
with a leg injury and LF Kelechi Osemele also left with an undisclosed injury.UP
