Kizer plays well, but Browns still lose to go 0-9

  • DeShone Kizer shows promise in gutsy performance: 'I see a guy who's starting to get it'

Detroit improved to 5-4 on the season.

Matthew Stafford threw three second-half touchdown passes and the Detroit Lions rallied for a 38-24 victory over the winless Cleveland Browns on Sunday at Ford Field.

Let's recap: the Browns were down by seven, had nearly 11 minutes on the clock, had their backup quarterback in the game, were ripping the Lions on the ground, and Jackson decides to call passes on five of their next six offensive plays. Still, it would have been nice for the Browns to find out more about what they had in Kizer before the season comes to a close. His passer rating was 118.9 after being a measley 2.7 following those first seven passes.

After not punting at all in last week's game, the Lions lost 13 yards and punted on their first possession. "He's able to effect the game like that".

Isaiah Crowell gained 90 yards on 16 carries and scored a touchdown for the Browns (0-9). The teams hadn't faced each other since the 2013 season, when the Lions won at Cleveland, 31-17. One of them negated a big gain on another Britt catch. "They just took advantage of some mental errors we made and some mistakes we made". It's the fourth defensive score this season for the Lions, seventh fumble recovery this season for the Lions, and first fumble recovery returned for a touchdown for the Lions since October 2015 (36 games).


Decker has been out all season because of a shoulder injury.

It's too bad the guys on the field didn't get more help from the guy on the sidelines. The Browns' formula when the season started was to play good defense and run the ball; to win conservatively, or at least try to. He's a good pass protector.

Now, Garrett and the Browns will move forward looking to avoid joining the Lions as the only 0-16 team in National Football League history.

Hue Jackson has had his share of poor play-calling this year. "We had our chances but couldn't finish it". That's a good football team over there, made some plays.

It was one of those play calls that the Browns have become known for, one that fans wish they could unsee after it unfolds.
