Brian Hoyer will start against Bills on Thursday night

The Cleveland Browns are rolling after a second straight win that has brought them to a .500 record. In their division, that puts them in a three-way tie for first. Part of the resurgence has been the role of quarterback Brian Hoyer over the last two games.

Hoyer has completed 55 of 92 passes for 590 yards and 5 touchdowns in those two wins. He has thrown three interceptions though, all of which came in his first win and start over the Minnesota Vikings.

From ESPN:

Quarterback Brian Hoyer will start again for the Cleveland Browns when they play host to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Bills are also 2-2 and are coming off a win to the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. The Browns have the benefit of hosting the Bills and could lean on home field advantage to get onto the winning side of .500.

The interesting match up will be the run game of the Bills versus the stingy run defense of the Browns. The Bills are posting a NFL 2nd best average of 152 yards on the ground a game. The Browns defense is allowing only 79 yards per game.

For Hoyer he faces a defense that is allowing an average of 277 yards passing per game this season.
