Cleveland, OH - Colt McCoy's touchdown throw to Mohamed Massaquoi with 43 seconds left in the fourth quarter lifted the Cleveland Browns to a 17-16 victory over the still-winless Miami Dolphins.

A field goal by Dan Carpenter had the Dolphins leading 16-10 with 3:23 left in the game, but Cleveland took over and started driving. After reaching the Miami 14 and calling timeout with 48 seconds left, McCoy lofted a pass to the right side of the end zone, and Massaquoi leaped to make the catch.

The extra point put the Browns ahead, and Mike Adams intercepted Chad Henne on the ensuing possession to secure the win for Cleveland (2-1), which was coming off last week's win in Indianapolis.

McCoy completed only 19 of his 39 attempts, but was 9-of-14 during the game- winning drive. He finished with 210 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for the Browns, who won despite missing starting running back Peyton Hillis because of an illness.

Henne was 19-of-29 for 255 yards and a touchdown, but couldn't lead the Dolphins (0-3) to their first win of the season.
