The Cleveland Browns defeated the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in a close game decided by a Peyton Hillis fourth quarter touchdown

The Kerry Collins-led Indianapolis Colts kept it close against the Cleveland Browns until the fourth quarter, but Peyton Hills eventually put the home team to the sword at Lucas Oil Stadium. Hillis didn't have the greatest day, only rushing for 3.5 yards per carry, but his 24-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter was the definitive play of the game, as the Browns won by a final score of 27-19.

Colt McCoy was good on the afternoon, completing 68.8 percent of his passes for 211 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. Kerry Collins had another rough day, completing only 50 percent of his passes and turning the ball over twice.

In a one-score game that was almost dead even in offensive plays, first downs and total yards, the Colts' one more turnover than the Browns was ultimately the difference in a close game between two teams that are unlikely to be in playoff contention at the end of the season.
