Cleveland Browns gave yet another game away

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

The Lions forced a fumble after a completed pass and fourth-year cornerback Nevin Lawson returned the turnover 44 yards for a touchdown, which gave them a 17-10 lead over the Browns with 3:55 to play in the first half.

Trailing 17-10 near the end of the second quarter, the Browns embarked on a drive that took them from their own 25 to a first-and-goal at Detroit's two-yard-line with 19 seconds left on the clock.

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. The Browns finished the day with 201 yards and two touchdowns; only a Browns miscommunication keeping the Lions from going into halftime tied at 17. The Browns now list Kizer as questionable to return.

The Lions ran for 104 yards and a touchdown - shocking given the weakness of Detroit's ground game and the strength of Cleveland's run defense - and DeValve made a major mistake in the second quarter. I saw a better version of him today. Then, with no timeouts, the Browns ran a quarterback sneak on second-and-goal. QB DeShone Kizer has four rushing touchdowns, the most by a Cleveland quarterback since Brian Sipe had four in 1974. The reason he was hit was because David Njoku missed a block.

Despite losing their first eight games, the Browns came to Ford Field ninth in total defense and ranked ahead of teams such as the Eagles, Saints, Rams and Chiefs - all of whom entered Sundays' games in first place. "That's how you win games".

It was one of those play calls that the Browns have become known for, one that fans wish they could unsee after it unfolds. The Browns' formula when the season started was to play good defense and run the ball; to win conservatively, or at least try to.
