Nevin Lawson of the Detroit Lions recovered a fumble and ran it back for a touchdown in the second quarter Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. His replacement, Cody Kessler, could not move the ball.

The Lions, who snapped a three-game losing streak with a win Monday night against the Green Bay Packers, have given up 26 sacks on the season, tied for sixth most in the league, and are 29th in rushing.

Kizer Strong - DeShone Kizer had the kind of day Hue Jackson had envisioned until he got blasted late in the third quarter and had to leave the game for a few offensive series. The half ended in embarrassing fashion, with the Browns frustrated they had come so close to a game-tying drive.

An undermanned roster led 24-17 in the third quarter, but the Browns' defense could not sustain some early success and was eventually overwhelmed.

Crowell was the best Browns player on both sides of the field and gets the game MVP. They hit 89 when Ameer Abdullah ran up the gut for 9 yards and a TD to tie the game at 10 with 10:25 left in the first half.

That being said, in addition to the Lions vs. Browns, there are plenty of other games on the NFL Week 10 schedule for you to enjoy.

Considering how hapless the Browns have been for much of this season, that's a problem.

The Lions drew even with the Browns at 24-24 on Stafford's eight-yard touchdown pass to Riddick with 52 seconds to play in the third quarter. Kizer was careful with the ball and made a nice throw to Seth DeValve before the Browns' third touchdown. Zane Gonzalez kicked a 23-yard field goal to open the scoring with 11:30 left in the first quarter. McCarron, Kizer looked more comfortable than he has in a long time.

The Lions remained in good shape to make a playoff run because they won. Yet another botched opportunity and frightful clock management considering that the Browns had to blow their final timeout with 1:17 to go in the half.

The Lions also activated Corey Robinson off injured reserve on Saturday, and waived wide receiver Jace Billingsley. Their first play after the punt was a 37-yard pass to Sammie Coates to set up a field goal that gave the Browns a 3-0 lead.
