"Fastest man alive," Browns tight end Jordan Cameron said of his teammate. "I don't know why they keep punting to him. But soon they'll figure out that he's the fastest guy on the field."
Benjamin finished with a franchise record 179 yards, bettering the mark held by Eric Metcalf (166) in 1993.
UNHAPPY RETURNS: The Bills gave up two TD returns, Benjamin's and a 44-yard interception runback by Browns safety T.J. Ward, who stepped in front of rookie Jeff Tuel's pass over the middle and took it to the end zone untouched.
"A misread on my part," said Tuel, who finished 8 of 20 for 80 yards. "I didn't see the safety flying down."
STEVIE WONDER: Johnson had two catches for 19 yards — and set up a score by drawing an interference penalty in the end zone — before leaving with his back injury. Johnson missed some practice time in the spring with a back issue and tried to loosen his back with some stretching on the sideline, but retreated to the locker room in the closing minutes of the first half.
Marrone said the Bills had some plays designed for Johnson but couldn't use them.
"He started off well," Marrone said. "He tried to push through it, which I appreciate from him, and we were going to get him some plays."
UP AND DOWN BROWNS: In five weeks, the Browns have changed quarterbacks, traded their star running back, lost two straight and won three in a row. October just began and already they've been through a season's worth of events.
"It's such an adversity-driven league, you've got to respond," Weeden said. "That just shows the strength and the will of this football team."
