INDIANAPOLIS — Peyton Hillis rushed for 94 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Cleveland Browns to a 27-19 victory at Indianapolis on Sunday.
The Browns (1-1) ended a five-game losing streak to the Colts, with their first win in the series since Sept. 25, 1994.
Colt McCoy was 22 of 32 for 211 yards with one TD.
Without Peyton Manning, the Colts just don't look like themselves. They are 0-2 for the first time since 1998 and never seriously challenged the Browns after falling behind 14-9 late in the first half.
Kerry Collins, Manning's replacement, started 9 of 12 on Sunday but finished 19 of 38 for 191 yards with one interception, one TD and one lost fumble.
The Browns took advantage of Indy's struggles.
McCoy's 16-yard TD pass to Evan Moore made it 7-6, and Hillis' 1-yard score put Cleveland up 14-9 at the half. The Browns never trailed again.
