Josh Gordon catches 1st TD pass in 1456 days

Gordon might've missed two-and-a-half seasons, but he's still the Browns' best receiver.

Just minutes after hauling in the game-tying score from Brett Hundley with 17 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Adams caught a short pass and spun away from a few defenders to stun the Browns with a 25-yard touchdown with 5:05 left in overtime.

That's Hundley's fourth 30-yard touchdown pass in his last three games, now the most in the National Football League since week 12 according to stats and information.

After moving the chains on an Isaiah Crowell 9-yard run, Cleveland got into field goal range when Kizer hit Gordon on a 13-yard slant to convert a third-and-1.

It was Gordon's first touchdown reception since Week 15 of the 2013 season.

He caught four passes for 85 yards in Los Angeles.

On third-and-4 from the 37, Kizer fired a pass to tight end David Njoku, who was initially ruled to have caught the ball for a first down. The Browns led 21-14 at the time.

Adams never broke stride, even after scoring the touchdown, ran up the visiting-team tunnel at FirstEnergy Stadium and headed straight to the locker room following the come-from-behind victory for the Packers (7-6). And on third-and-2, Kizer thought he had the game-winning play unfolding before him.
