Rapid Reaction: Browns 29, Bills 27

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Cleveland Browns held a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter for the third consecutive game.

This time the Browns held on -- barely.

In what could be a sign that Cleveland will not pack it in for the remainder of the season, Browns kicker Phil Dawson made a career-best 56-yard field goal late to seal a 29-27 victory over the Buffalo Bills. The game marked the first career victory for quarterback Brady Quinn, who led the Browns down the field in the final two minutes for the victory.

Cleveland (4-6) is far behind in the playoff race and likely doesn't have much to play for the rest of the season. But it still could be a dangerous team to play down the stretch.

The Browns outplayed the Bills (5-5), who are in the playoff hunt, for most of the game. Despite another shaky fourth quarter, Cleveland also showed poise in key moments for the first time in a while.
