Matthew Stafford throws 3 TD passes as Lions beat Browns

Lions activate Taylor Decker from PUP list ahead of Browns game

He started every game for the Lions as a rookie last season after being drafted in the first round.

"I came here to win, and we're 0-9". Kizer's sneak failed, and the Browns found that they had a big problem when it did - namely, they were out of timeouts, and nobody seemed to know what to do as time ticked down.

Cleveland scored the first 10 points of the game, but the Lions rallied to take a 17-10 lead by halftime.

Detroit took a 17-10 advantage into the locker room, and the 0-8 Browns left fans wondering what they had witnessed. Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson ran well.

This interception by Cleveland outside linebacker Jamie Collins was only his first of the year and sixth of his career.

The Browns, of course, have no hopes of a second-half turnaround that would suddenly vault them to playoff contention. The second quarter belonged to the Lions. Before the injury, Kizer completed 15 of 24 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown. It went nowhere, and the Lions wisely made sure the Browns could not get up to spike the ball for a field goal try.

Along with Abdullah, the Lions featured a steady diet of running backs on the game-tying drive.

Detroit's fourth quarter comeback was once again led by quarterback Matthew Stafford. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah is doubtful because of a back injury.

The Lions are now 5-4 entering next Sunday afternoon's trip to meet their longtime rival, the Chicago Bears, at Soldier Field on the shores of Lake Michigan. They were allowing 25 a game before facing the Lions and had held the Steelers, a top-10 offensive team, to 21 in the season opener. They were also without starting RG T.J. Lang (concussion), but LT Taylor Decker made his season debut. DT Larry Ogunjobi (groin) and QB Kevin Hogan were among the Browns' inactives.

Kessler hasn't fared much better than Kizer when called upon.
