MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Brian Hoyer's third touchdown pass to Jordan Cameron came with 51 seconds left Sunday and lifted the Cleveland Browns over Minnesota 31-27.

Hoyer, starting for the injured Brandon Weeden, had hooked up with Cameron for TDs twice earlier in the game, but the late score was the decisive blow as Cleveland (1-2) earned its first win under new head Coach Rob Chudzinski.

Hoyer completed 30-of-54 passes for 321 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions while Cameron finished with six catches for 66 yards.

Josh Gordon returned from a two-game suspension to haul down 10 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown.

The Vikings (0-3) were led by Christian Ponder, who completed 25-of-42 passes for 228 yards and an interception.

The Minnesota signal-caller also rushed five times for 46 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.
