That said, Detroit did hold DeShone Kizer own preventing Cleveland from calling another play prior to halftime.

Nevin Lawson of the Detroit Lions recovered a fumble and ran it back for a touchdown in the second quarter Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Following the touchdown pass to Riddick, Stafford threw scoring passes to tight end Eric Ebron and wide receiver Golden Tate to create an insurmountable advantage for the Lions.

Cleveland Browns linebacker Jamie Collins left Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions in the first quarter with a right knee injury and will not return.

Up by seven points after back-to-back touchdown drives in the third quarter, the Browns (0-9) gave up three touchdown drives over the final 20 minutes of play and could not recover on the way to a 38-24 loss to the Lions (5-4) in Detroit. Crowell finished it off with a 6-yard run. The Lions' offense found a rhythm late but started off slow and spotted the Browns a 10-point lead. Detroit needed just 10 rushes to surpass the average of 84.3 yards per game on the ground allowed by the Browns.

The Browns made mistakes, including at the end of the first half when they botched the most basic elements in clock management. Before the injury, Kizer completed 15 of 24 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown.

With how the first half ended both Jackson and Kizer are to blame.

While having his best outing of the season, Kizer got hit in the ribs and was taken to the locker room. He was replaced by Cody Kessler. Detroit would end up winning the contest, 38-24. Can't win if the defense can't get off the field when it matters most. To realize just how bad the Browns have been, consider that they are just 1-23 under head coach Hue Jackson.
