Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer is trying to get the Browns an AFC North title and postseason trip.

But Sunday's game against the Houston Texans and coach Bill O'Brien is also something of an audition. Hoyer and O'Brien worked together in the past and they have an interest in doing the same in the future, league sources said.

Hoyer trusts O'Brien as much as any coach in the league from their time together in New England, sources said, and he would welcome a reunion.
