The game featured 3 ties and 4 lead changes but in the end the Lions prevailed 38-24.

Cody Kessler, who appeared in relief of a struggling Kizer earlier this season, replaced him.

What it means: If the Browns played this way all season, there would be unhappiness about the record but credit for an undermanned team competing to win.

Let's face it, not many people believe the Detroit Lions will have a let down this coming Sunday and lose to the winless Cleveland Browns. Detroit improved to 5-4 on the season.

It was 24-24 when he took a hard shot to the ribs by Quandre Diggs with six seconds left in the third quarter and had to leave the field.

Kizer Strong - DeShone Kizer had the kind of day Hue Jackson had envisioned until he got blasted late in the third quarter and had to leave the game for a few offensive series.


The Lions play at Chicago next Sunday. To make the playoffs they'll need to play better than they did today, but they played well enough to beat the Browns. This game was competitive from the start.

Considering how hapless the Browns have been for much of this season, that's a problem. Before the injury, Kizer completed 15 of 24 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown. He had run for 20 yards to convert a third down on the drive, and hit tight end Seth DeValve with a 35-yard pass to the 1. The clock expired before Kizer could get everyone lined up in time to kill it. Duke Johnson slammed his helmet in frustration drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that was enforced to start the second half. He did return to the game, but by that point the deficit was too large with too little time left.

Zane Gonzalez put the Browns on the board with a 23-yard field goal. It was a odd play by the Browns, who did not have a timeout left. It went nowhere, and the Lions wisely made sure the Browns could not get up to spike the ball for a field goal try.

On the next drive, Kizer scored on a 1-yard sneak to make it 24-17. Jackson said the Browns have to play perfectly to win.

Finding the formula: It took a while but the Browns finally found their running game - and they used it. Cleveland ran for 201 yards in the loss, 118 in the second half. Those two imperfect plays significantly hurt the cause.
