Browns’ kicker has perfect touch


BEREA, Ohio — Browns punter Spencer Lanning was bombarded with texts after he threw his first NFL touchdown pass.

Some of the messages were congratulatory, and few others weren't so kind.

"I've had some guys around the league texting me saying I threw it like a girl," Lanning said with a smile. "No offense to all the women out there."

Cleveland's holder on field-goal and extra-point attempts, Lanning lofted an 11-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jordan Cameron in Sunday's 31-27 win over Minnesota. The Vikings fell for the trick play when they left Cameron uncovered near the sideline.

"If they covered it up we were going to shift back in and kick the field goal," Lanning said. "I heard Billy Cundiff saying, 'It's on, it's on, it's on, it's open.'"
