In the third quarter, the Cleveland Browns lead the Detroit Lions, 24-17.

Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes and the Lions avoided an upset on Sunday, beating the winless Cleveland Browns 38-24 at Ford Field.

According to the CBS broadcast, the rookie had his ribs injured. The Browns now list Kizer as questionable to return.

The Browns were out of timeouts, however, and after tight end David Njoku could not get two feet down on a potential touchdown pass from quarterback DeShone Kizer, the Browns had a second-and-goal with 15 seconds remaining. The Browns went 85 yards on eight plays on their first series of the second half, which was punctuated by a Crowell touchdown run. DeShone Kizer opened with a 38-yard completion to receiver Sammie Coates up the far sideline to set up a first-and-goal.

Kizer passed for 178 yards and a touchdown and carried seven times for 57 rushing yards and a score prior to the injury. Crowell finished it off with a 6-yard run.

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.

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

The Browns made mistakes, including at the end of the first half when they botched the most basic elements in clock management.

Emmanuel Ogbah had four sacks, and Christian Kirksey and Joe Schobert each added a sack.

Finding the formula: It took a while but the Browns finally found their running game - and they used it. Cleveland ran for 201 yards in the loss, 118 in the second half. For much of the game, Cleveland looked equal to - if not better than - Detroit.

Kizer was tackled by cornerback Quandre Diggs on a blitz while throwing an incompletion.
