Browns QB Kizer leaves game with rib injury

The Detroit Lions mounted comebacks in both halves to overcome the winless Cleveland Browns 38-24 at Ford Field on Sunday afternoon.

The Lions then put together a 75-yard drive of their own that ended with Theo Riddick's 8-yard catch of a Stafford aerial to deadlock the score at 24 with just 52 seconds left in the third quarter.

But after the game, the X-Rays on the rookie quarterback came back clear, and he's set to play next week.

The Lions pulled away in the end - and they've been a good closing team - but against better teams they can't look like they did in the first half against the Browns. In the first game after the Browns nearly traded for A.J.

The 10-0 lead was Cleveland's biggest advantage of the season.

The Browns drove 85 yards following the second-half kickoff to tie the game at 17.

Cleveland coach Hue Jackson agreed with his quarterback's assessment. Running back Duke Johnson moved the chains by the nose of the football.

In the third quarter, the Cleveland Browns lead the Detroit Lions, 24-17. Crowell finished it off with a 6-yard run. It was by far his best performance of the season and reason to believe.

The Lions entered the game as 10.5-point favorites over the Browns, who were coming off their bye week. The scoop and score gave the Lions their first lead of the game, 17-10, late in the second quarter.

DeValve's Bad Day - DeValve cost the Browns a 29-yard completion to Britt down to the 15 with a holding penalty. The Lions gummed up the works as the bodies unfolded and the clock expired. Yet another botched opportunity and terrible clock management considering that the Browns had to blow their final timeout with 1:17 to go in the half. He was replaced by Cody Kessler. Kizer walked minutes later with medical personnel to the locker room with a rib injury. Detroit would end up winning the contest, 38-24.
