Backup QBs lead Browns past Colts 21-18 as Hunt returns

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Cleveland Browns coach Freddie Kitchens played it safe Saturday.

After watching two physical practices with the Indianapolis Colts and seeing one serious injury, he gave his top players the day off and allowed Garrett Gilbert and David Blough to go head to head for the No. 3 quarterback job. He even allowed Kareem Hunt to make a brief but meaningful return.

Gilbert threw two touchdown passes in the first half and Blough added another TD pass in the second half to give the Browns a 21-18 victory - their first preseason win over the Colts since 1979 when the franchise was still in Baltimore.
