Gordon didn’t exactly ease back into action. The Browns targeted him 19 times — no, that’s not a misprint — and he caught 10 passes for 146 yards and one touchdown.
“Obviously he is a game-changer,” Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer said. “He is a big guy and can move, go and get the ball, and he also frees up some other guys.”
No tanking allowed
The Browns’ decision to trade running back Trent Richardson last week prompted plenty of speculation around the league that the team was tanking in order to improve its draft position.
The Browns certainly didn’t play like it.
“Well, we’re never going to quit,” coach Rob Chudzinski said. “The guys in this room aren’t that way, I’m not that way. We’ll never quit. That’s not even in our terminology.”
Cleveland got Indianapolis’ top pick in 2014 for Richardson.
• Browns punter Spencer Lanning became the first player with a punt, extra-point attempt and touchdown pass in the same game since Sam Baker in 1968.
• The Vikings showed a new wrinkle on their first touchdown in the first quarter. On first-and-goal from the 2, nose tackle Letroy Guion paved the way as lead blocker on Peterson’s touchdown run.
• After collecting only 10 interceptions last season, the Vikings already have six in three games this season.
• Kevin Williams started his 158th game, passing Hall of Famer Alan Page for most career starts by a Vikings defensive tackle. Jim Marshall (270) holds the team record for most starts by a defensive lineman.
• Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson was credited with two sacks, two tackles for loss, an interception and a pass breakup.
• Vikings rookie linebacker Michael Mauti, a seventh-round pick from Penn State, made his NFL debut.
