DeShone Kizer suffers rib injury as Browns lose 38-24 to Lions

Lions activate Taylor Decker from PUP list ahead of Browns game

Free Press sports writers Dave Birkett and Carlos Monarrez predict the Lions-Browns game on November 9, 2017.

Run Defense - The Browns normally stout run defense got gashed by runs of 20, 10 and 21 yards on consecutive plays - with Garrett, Ogbah and Shelton on the sideline - on 1 drive that eventually ended in a Matt Prater 46-yard field goal with 6:00 left in the 1st quarter to cut Cleveland's lead to 10-3.

What it means: In the end, this is another win for the Lions, pushing them over.500 on the season (5-4) and keeping them in the playoff hunt. He remains unsigned and has filed a complaint that team owners colluded against him because of the protests - aimed at police brutality against African-Americans and other issues.

What I liked: Until he hurt his ribs early in the fourth quarter, Kizer had his best game of the season.

The Lions activated Decker off the physically unable to perform list Saturday and are expected to start him at left tackle for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. Then, after a 29-yard punt return after a three-and-out from the Browns, Stafford found Tate for a 40-yard touchdown, which gave the Lions a two-score advantage.

Cleveland scored the first 10 points of the game, but the Lions rallied to take a 17-10 lead by halftime.

After Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was intercepted, the Browns soon upped the gap to 10-0 on a 19-yard scoring strike from Kizer to Kenny Britt with 8:39 showing on the clock. Before the injury, Kizer completed 15 of 24 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown. 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.

The Lions remained in good shape to make a playoff run because they won.

Zane Gonzalez put the Browns on the board with a 23-yard field goal. Kessler overthrew Tregg by 10 yards, much to the receiver's chagrin.

"When Deck's ready, Deck's going to play", Caldwell said. Add the end of the first half and the fact the defense gave up 31 points after starting fast, and it's not tough to see why the Browns lost for the ninth time in nine games.
