Stafford completed 17 of 26 passes for 249 yards. And there even was a Kenny Britt sighting, as he was able to turn a short pass into a touchdown in the first quarter.

Cleveland rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer passed for 232 yards and a touchdown and also carried seven times for 57 yards.

Kizer was tackled by cornerback Quandre Diggs on a blitz while throwing an incompletion. He returned with 4:28 remaining.

"We're just trying to get in his face and make sure he couldn't do something like that but he was able to capitalize on our mistakes and he came through with the win".

Did the Browns have a second play not loaded up? Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson ran well.

Cody Kessler, who appeared in relief of a struggling Kizer earlier this season, replaced him. The second quarter belonged to the Lions.

Ebron's touchdown was a 29-yard reception that capped off a nine-play, 61-yard drive.

Cleveland actually held the lead after the first too which is nice to see, but that didn't last long.

Zane Gonzalez put the Browns on the board with a 23-yard field goal.

This interception by Cleveland outside linebacker Jamie Collins was only his first of the year and sixth of his career. Tate led the team with six catches for 97 yards.

Along with Abdullah, the Lions featured a steady diet of running backs on the game-tying drive. Lawson scooped up the ball and raced down the sideline with 3:55 left in the half.

Detroit's fourth quarter comeback was once again led by quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Decker, the 16th overall pick in the 2016 draft, was making his season debut after undergoing labrum surgery. Decker tore his right labrum in June.

The 5-4 Detroit Lions will travel to the Windy City in Week 11 to face a divisional rival, the Chicago Bears.

What it means: If the Browns played this way all season, there would be unhappiness about the record but credit for an undermanned team competing to win. DT Larry Ogunjobi (groin) and QB Kevin Hogan were among the Browns' inactives.
