Reactions to Detroit Lions vs. Cleveland Browns game

Reactions to Detroit Lions vs. Cleveland Browns game

That wasn't the worst part of Cleveland's first-half performance.

Facing second-and-goal at the Lions 2-yard line with 15 seconds left, quarterback DeShone Kizer took the snap and tried to run behind center JC Tretter. He started every game for the Lions as a rookie last season after being drafted in the first round. Offensively the Browns have scored just 12 times - 9 touchdowns, 3-of-4 on field goals and turned it over 6 times and once more on downs this season. Defensively the Browns have seen opponents breach their 20 23 times, stopping them just once, which came on goal-line stand a few weeks ago but Gregg Williams' unit has failed to create a single turnover.

Decker has been out all season because of a shoulder injury. Starting defensive end Ziggy Ansah (back) was doutbful, and is confirmed inactive for today.


The Detroit Lions will be without three starters today as they host the Cleveland Browns, but they do get some good news in the form of rookie receiver Kenny Golladay being back in the lineup for the first time in over a month.

Then, Crowell rushed for a 14-yard gain to set up the touchdown run one play later.
