BEREA, Ohio (AP)

Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer will make his second straight start this week against Cincinnati.

Filling in for an injured Brandon Weeden, Hoyer led the Browns to a 31-27 win on Sunday at Minnesota. Hoyer, who began the season as Cleveland's third-string quarterback, threw three touchdown passes and three interceptions in his second career start.

Coach Rob Chudzinski will play him again because Weeden has not completely recovered from a sprained right thumb. Chudzinski expects Weeden will throw this week and he'll evaluate the quarterback situation on a ''week to week basis.''

Hoyer leapfrogged backup Jason Campbell on the depth chart last week to start against the Vikings.

Hoyer completed 30 of 54 passes for 321 yards and threw a game-winning TD pass with 51 seconds left.
