Gordon made his return to the NFL last week, playing his first game since 2014 due to suspensions stemming from multiple violations of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. After a solid performance last week, Gordon came out firing for the Browns on Sunday, accruing 56 yards on Cleveland’s opening drive, including the score that tied the game early.
With Gordon back, the Cleveland offence has looked much more lively the past two weeks. And after adding another score in the third quarter, it accomplished something the team hasn’t done in two years:
The Browns have a two-touchdown lead in the second half for the first time in the Hue Jackson era.

The Browns are still looking to secure their first win of the 2017 season.
