Dawson's 56-yard FG the difference for Browns after Lindell's miss
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Phil Dawson wasn't about to quit during Cleveland's latest fourth-quarter meltdown. Turned out, neither did the rest of the Browns.
• After going 1-4 on MNF from 1992-2007, the Browns improved to 2-0 this season.
• The Bills fell to 1-5 since starting the season 4-0.
• Cleveland quarterback Brady Quinn earned his first NFL win.
• The Bills' Trent Edwards became the first QB to throw three picks in the opening quarter of a game since Peyton Manning did so at San Diego on Nov. 11, 2007.
