Billy Cundiff kicked a 29-yard field goal with three seconds left, giving the Cleveland Browns a 26-24 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Cundiff's kick helped the Browns (1-1) snap a nine-game losing streak in home openers and gave rookie coach Mike Pettine his first NFL win. Cleveland had not won at home since 2004.

Quarterback Brian Hoyer drove the Browns 85 yards in 14 plays in the final 2:46 to set up Cundiff's game-winner. Hoyer completed several big passes, none more crucial than his 28-yarder to Andrew Hawkins with 13 seconds to go.

The Saints (0-2) rallied from a 13-point deficit to take the lead on Mark Ingram's 1-yard TD run with 12:12 left.

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes to Jimmy Graham and moved one spot up the NFL's career passing list.
