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.

Luckily, they fumbled in the waning minutes, allowing Matthew Stafford & company to march down and allow Matt Prater to ice the game with a field goal. The [...]
  • THAT’S HOW THAT’S DONE LIONS TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS. Yeah, we led 21-3 – yeah, our lack of a secondary allowed it to eventually be tied at 28 – but General Stafford would not be denied nor stopped, upending the opposition with a last second drive that gave our bum kicker a redemption song. Stafford switched it up brilliantly [...]
