he Cleveland Browns used a lot of no-huddle, hurry-up offense Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers to rally from a 24-point halftime deficit to tie the game early in the fourth quarter.

“It’s something I’m very comfortable with,” quarterback Brian Hoyer, per the Akron Beacon Journal. “I think for our whole entire offense, we’re all comfortable with it. We practice it a lot. To go out and execute it in a game boosts your confidence level.”

Hoyer completed 15 of 20 passes for 173 yards, one touchdown and a quarterback rating of 117.3 after halftime Week 1. Even with the great success, Hoyer said the Browns will have to be comfortable with changing tempo on offense moving forward.

“I think when you can move fast and you’re getting big chunk plays whether it’s in the running game or the passing game, that gives you a little bit of momentum,” Hoyer said. “But we can’t just rely on our no-huddle offense because no one can sustain that type of energy for an entire 60 minutes, plus 16 games a year. So I think obviously it’s something that will be a good mix-up for us, but we just have to get better in our normal offense, too.”
