  • Matthew Stafford throws 3 TD passes as Lions beat Browns

The Browns were coming out of a timeout - their last of the half - and it is incumbent upon Jackson to stress game situation to his rookie quarterback.

The Browns and Lions went back and forth Sunday afternoon at Ford Field but a strong second half by the Lions coupled with a rib injury suffered by DeShone Kizer did them in.

The first half ended with the Browns running out of time at the Lions' 2-yard line and Detroit still in control 17-10. They won't do it with the type of defensive effort and offensive production they had in the first three quarters against the Browns. In the fourth quarter, with Kizer in the locker room, Cody Kessler had Bryce Treggs wide open down the left sideline for what would have been an easy game-tying touchdown. First, Ameer Abdullah ran it up the gut to tie the game at 10.

Emmanuel Ogbah had four sacks, and Christian Kirksey and Joe Schobert each added a sack. While he wasn't dominant in Sunday's outing, he made an impact with 62 yards - including a 50-yard reception to get Detroit's offense going in the first half. It was a rough day for the rush defense though, as they let a weak Lions rushing attack rush for 104 yards and 5.5 yards per carry.




Kenny Britt doubled his touchdown total for the season with a nice catch-and-run on a 19-yard pass. Ogbah and Myles Garrett started fast, Kizer looked more comfortable and the Browns were aggressive and successful running the ball.

The Browns had a second-and-10 when Kizer flared a pass to tight end Seth DeValve in the right flat for a nine-yard gain.

Cleveland and their fans have had little reason to celebrate this season, especially after All-Pro lineman Joe Thomas went down with a triceps injury, breaking his record for consecutive snaps played.

Kizer was tackled by cornerback Quandre Diggs on a blitz while throwing an incompletion.
