Cleveland Browns fall to the Detroit Lions, 38-24

The Browns ended up losing 38-24 for their ninth consecutive loss this season. The 21 passes and 232 yards were both the second best totals of Kizer's career, trailing only a game against the Indianapolis Colts when he was 22-for-47 with 242 yards passing.

The Browns responded with three strong possessions: the one that came up empty at the end of the half, two long touchdown drives in the third quarter. The Browns now list Kizer as questionable to return. That gave Quandre Diggs a free shot at Kizer, who left with rib injuries.

Luckily, Cleveland's offense turn around from the start in the third as they went eight plays and 85 yards to miraculously tie the game. He was replaced by Cody Kessler.

Cleveland scored the first 10 points of the game, but the Lions rallied to take a 17-10 lead by halftime. By the time Kizer returned with 4:28 to play, the Lions led 38-24 and the game was all but over.

With 15 seconds left in the first half, the Browns had the ball inside the Lions' five with no timeouts, but they called a run play which the Lions stopped, and then the Brown didn't have enough time to get another play off, ending the first half with the Lions up 17-10. I thought we did some good things out there. With seven more games to go, the Browns are hoping to avoid becoming only the second team to go 0-16, a record held by the Lions.

Stafford completed 17 of 26 passes for 249 yards. Crowell finished it off with a 6-yard run.

Emmanuel Ogbah had four sacks, and Christian Kirksey and Joe Schobert each added a sack. But that was as close as they got to the upset.

Myles Garrett continues to make things happen when he is on the field. The Lions gummed up the works as the bodies unfolded and the clock expired. It was a rough day for the rush defense though, as they let a weak Lions rushing attack rush for 104 yards and 5.5 yards per carry. One had to wonder, could this be the beginnings of an ugly Browns game?
