The Browns elected to run a quarterback sneak with DeShone Kizer with 15 seconds remaining in the first half and the team down a touchdown to the Detroit Lions.

According to the CBS broadcast, the rookie had his ribs injured. Stafford ended the game completing 17 of his 26 passes for 249 yards, three scores and one interception. They marched 85 yards in 8 plays capped by a 6-yard touchdown run by Isaiah Crowell to tie the game at 17.

The loss drops the Browns to 0-9 on the season and 1-24 under head coach Hue Jackson. DeShone Kizer opened with a 38-yard completion to receiver Sammie Coates up the far sideline to set up a first-and-goal. Crowell had 90 rushing yards and a touchdown, Duke Johnson added 54, and Kizer had 57, including his fourth rushing touchdown of the season. Running back Ameer Abdullah rushed for 52 yards and a score on just 11 carries.

The quarterback finished the day at 21-for-37 for 232 yards with a touchdown and a pick. Emmanuel Ogbah had two sacks.

Kenny Britt doubled his touchdown total for the season with a nice catch-and-run on a 19-yard pass.

That wasn't the worst part of Cleveland's first-half performance.

Myles Garrett continues to make things happen when he is on the field.

Kizer was tackled by cornerback Quandre Diggs on a blitz while throwing an incompletion. After all, the Lions are clearly the better team and they have the home-field advantage (though that has not been very helpful for them this season).

For the second straight game, the Browns got off to a hot start, and it had a little bit to do with both sides of the ball.

Cleveland and their fans have had little reason to celebrate this season, especially after All-Pro lineman Joe Thomas went down with a triceps injury, breaking his record for consecutive snaps played.
