If that wasn’t enough, Pryor also played safety during a Dolphins’ Hail Mary attempt.

Pryor lined up at quarterback 14 times, totaling three completions on five pass attempts. Pryor also tallied 21 rushing yards and a touchdown on four carries and eight receptions for 144 yards.

The Browns started third-string rookie QB Cody Kessler, who  completed 21 of 33 attempts for 244 yards. Kessler also lost a fumble.
