This would not be a big surprise, as Brandon Weeden just started throwing the football at the end of last week as he recovers from a sprained thumb.
It also wouldn’t be a surprise because the Browns offense has come to life the last two weeks while Hoyer was under center. In his two games this season, Hoyer is 55 of 92 (59.8%) for 590 yards and five touchdowns with three interceptions. (All of the interceptions were against the Vikings.)
Weeden in the first two games of the season was 47 of 86 (54.7%) for 516 yards and one touchdown with three interceptions. (All interceptions were week one against the Dolphins.)
