Hightower led the Patriots with 10 tackles -- five solo -- and added a sack, his first of the season.
Gronkowski was upended after only his second catch of the day on a hard tackle by safety T.J. Ward.
Mallett completed 12 of 20 passes for 137 yards, and he added a 22 -yard touchdown pass to Zach Sudfeld.
Mallett is expected to open the season as the primary backup to Tom Brady.
The Patriots are back in action Week 14 vs. Cleveland.
Edelman and the offense were both blanked in the first half. He didn't connect with quarterback Tom Bady until snagging an 8-yarder on the first possession of the third quarter. But he contributed a two-point conversion late that quarter, a 2-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and four huge receptions for 50 yards on the game-winning drive. He finished with 64 yards on six catches.
The Patriots' leading receiver, who needs 225 receiving yards to reach 1,000 on the season, will try to inch closer to that mark when his team plays at Miami next Sunday.
Jones now has 4.5 sacks on the season, to go with 25 tackles.
The 33-year-old cornerback signed a three-year contract as a free agent with the Patriots in mid-March after spending 12 years with Arizona. The versatile Wilson has 27 career interceptions and 25.5 sacks to his credit.
Collie, who thrived as a possession receiver with Indianapolis from 2009 to 2011, played in four games for New England this season, starting one, and caught three passes for 34 yards.
Vereen established new career marks with 12 receptions and 153 yards. But it was on the ground, where he had just three carries for 9 yards, where he scored a key 6-yard touchdown in the third quarter and added a two-point conversion in the fourth.
His huge production didn't begin in earnest until he sprinted by Browns linebacker Craig Robertson for a 50-yard reception that set up his touchdown. He was targeted a game-high 17 times.
Vereen, who has 40 catches for 373 yards in just five games this season, hopes to increase that output next Sunday at Miami.
Jones now has 38 tackles and 6 1/2 sacks on the season. The Patriots face the Dolphins in Week 8.
Blount raced 32 yards with a short reception that proved to be the key play in a drive that resulted in a field goal that finally put New England on the board. He will try to build on that success next Sunday at Miami.
The 34-year-old Carter enjoyed a standout career with San Francisco, Washington, New England and Oakland before the Raiders released him in August. He had a Renaissance season with the Patriots in 2011 with 10 sacks and a Pro Bowl berth.
The team has also signed defensive tackle Sealver Siliga and released cornerback Travis Howard in practice squad moves.
The loss of the huge tackle is a huge one for New England. Wilfork is a five-time Pro Bowler who earned a spot on the AFC team in each of the last four years.
Brady was just 1 of 6 for 5 yards and an interception in the first quarter and managed just 95 yards passing in the first half. New England was blanked before intermission and has scored just 10 point in first halves in the last four games combined.
But Brady loosened up the Browns defense with short throws in the third quarter before racking up big chunks on longer passes. He played hero again with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman with 1:04 left in the game and, after his team recovered an onside kick, a 1-yard game-winner to Danny Amendola.
Brady finished 32 of 52 for 418 yards - including 323 in the second half - two touchdowns and a pick despite losing tight end Rob Gronkowski to a knee injury in the third quarter. He will try to maintain the momentum next Sunday at Miami.
Ryan has totaled 22 tackles (19 solo), three interceptions, 1 1/2 sacks and six pass defenses through 12 games.
Amendola achieved little previous to that catch. He caught two passs for 25 yards in the first half and finished with four for 36 yards. He hopes to contribute more when the Patriots travel to Miami for an AFC East clash next Sunday.
Ninkovich tied for second on his unit with seven tackles, registered its only sack, added two TFLs and had two quarterback hits.
