McCoy perfect first drive

Too bad Colt McCoy couldn't bottle that first possession and open it every time the Browns play.

 McCoy led a touchdown drive for a 7-0 lead over the Packers by going 5-for-5 for 72 yards while spreading the ball to three wide receivers plus running back Peyton Hillis.

McCoy capped the drive with a touchdown pass to Josh Cribbs. Cribbs jumped and fell backward  making the catch.

Green Bay answered with a 21-yard touchdown from Aaron Rodgers to Greg Jennings. Jennings beat cornerback Sheldon Brown on the play.

McCoy is still at quarterback as the second quarter begins with Browns facing third-and-four on the Cleveland 43. This is likely his last possession. He keeps the drive going with a 19-yard pass to Ben Watson to the Packers 40 and then hit Watson again to the Packers 3.

Hills ran inside 3 yards for the touchdown. The Browns lead, 14-7, with 13:46 to play in the first half.. It was a good night for McCoy.

The Browns second defense is in the game.
