The rookie did not throw an interception in the first three quarters.

Kenny Britt doubled his touchdown total for the season with a nice catch-and-run on a 19-yard pass.

Cleveland dropped to 0-9 going into a home date with the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday afternoon at FirstEnergy Stadium.

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

Detroit took its first lead at 17-10 with 3:55 to go in the half when cornerback Nevin Lawson picked up a fumble and scampered 44 yards into the end zone. Linebacker Jamie Collins hurt his knee in the first quarter.

Still, all that matters is the final score-and not only did Detroit record just their second home win of the season, they covered one of the biggest spreads they've ever faced.

Kizer left the game with a rib injury after taking a hit from Quandre Diggs. Prior to his exit, Kizer had completed 15 of 24 passes for 178 yards and a TD, while adding seven carries for 57 yards and a TD. As a result, Zane Gonzalez had to kick a field goal. Then, with no timeouts, the Browns ran a quarterback sneak on second-and-goal. It was a rough day for the rush defense though, as they let a weak Lions rushing attack rush for 104 yards and 5.5 yards per carry.

Detroit's fourth quarter comeback was once again led by quarterback Matthew Stafford.

NOTES: Lions DE Ziggy Ansah missed the game with a back injury.

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. They were allowing 25 a game before facing the Lions and had held the Steelers, a top-10 offensive team, to 21 in the season opener.

Decker, the 16th overall pick in the 2016 draft, was making his season debut after undergoing labrum surgery.

Kessler hasn't fared much better than Kizer when called upon.
