Cleveland Browns gave yet another game away

Detroit also got some big runs from running backs Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. The play was Collins' last of the game, as he left with a knee injury and didn't return, but it set up DeShone Kizer and the Browns offense deep inside Lions territory.

The Cleveland Browns gave it a good try on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, but ultimately it was not enough as the Browns fell, 38-24.

And that, simply, is this: If the Lions want to be a playoff team this season, they must play much better than they did in a 38-24 victory against the winless Cleveland Browns.

In what at times was the Browns best game of the season, three offensive series stand out as the best examples of why it is time to move on from Jackson.

Detroit closed to within 10-3 with exactly 6:00 left in the initial period on Matt Prater's 46-yard field goal.

Rapper Nicki Minaj's brother CONVICTED of sexually assaulting child stepdaughter
Maraj maintains the rape accusations were invented by the victim's mother in an attempt to go after Nicki Minaj's family fortune. But she said once it did, Maraj told her she "wanted it to happen", and slapped her in the face if she refused his advances.

Isaiah Crowell gained 90 yards on 16 carries and scored a touchdown for the Browns (0-9).

The Lions entered the game as 10.5-point favorites over the Browns, who were coming off their bye week. Njoku was unable to get both feet down on a fade from Kizer on first down and on second down, with:15 on the clock Kizer kept it and was stuffed for no-gain. Yet another botched opportunity and awful clock management considering that the Browns had to blow their final timeout with 1:17 to go in the half.

Kizer was having his best game of the season before suffering a rib injury that forced him to the locker room. Cody Kessler took over on third down and was promptly sacked.

Second Half Stops The Browns defense gave up 3 touchdown drives in the second half. To realize just how bad the Browns have been, consider that they are just 1-23 under head coach Hue Jackson.

For the most part the defense made the Lions work for what they got.
