OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Weeden threw for a career-high 364 yards and a touchdown and the Cleveland Browns did just enough to snap a 12-game road losing streak by beating the Oakland Raiders 20-17 on Sunday.

Weeden hit fellow rookie Josh Gordon on a 44-yard score in the second quarter and Trent Richardson scored on a 3-yard run after Sheldon Brown made a key interception deep in Cleveland territory when the Raiders (3-9) were driving for the potential tying or go-ahead score in the fourth quarter.

It all added up to the first road win for the Browns (4-8) since beating Indianapolis 27-19 on Sept. 18, 2011. The skid started a few weeks later with a loss in Oakland and went deep into this season.
