Lions Snarf Browns in Preseason Debut

Trailing 12-6, the Lions marched down their home field easily, looking like they’d punch in the winning touchdown. Unfortunately, a botched snap put the ball back in Cleveland’s hands with less than three minutes to play.

After some solid defense forced a three-and-out, Detroit received the ball one last time. Backup-backup Kellen Moore took us down once again, dodging yellow flags like blitzing linebackers. Moore connected with his receiver in the end zone with just over a minute to play, putting us up 13-12.

On the Browns final drive, the Lions defense intercepted the ball on fourth down to secure the win.
