In what at times was the Browns best game of the season, three offensive series stand out as the best examples of why it is time to move on from Jackson. "I came here to turn this franchise around".
Jackson refused to talk about what play had been called and if Kizer made any changes. QB DeShone Kizer has four rushing touchdowns, the most by a Cleveland quarterback since Brian Sipe had four in 1974.
Detroit took a 17-10 advantage into the locker room, and the 0-8 Browns left fans wondering what they had witnessed.
Kizer missed two second-half possessions after suffering a rib injury on a third-quarter hit from cornerback Quandre Diggs.
Cleveland bounced back from that to score touchdowns on their first two drives of the second half to take a 24-17 lead.
Browns tight end Seth DeValve, though, said Kizer did audible into the quarterback dive.
After missing on five of his first seven passes, Stafford finished 17 for 26 through the air for 249 yards and three touchdowns with one interception.
"He's not flawless, but this is the best version we've seen of him". Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt actually caught a pass and scored a touchdown early in the first quarter!
Cleveland had the ball on the Detroit 2, trailing 17-10 with 15 seconds left and no timeouts. The Week 10 matchup was much closer than most anticipated, with the Browns putting up 10 unanswered points to start the contest.
The 5-4 Detroit Lions will travel to the Windy City in Week 11 to face a divisional rival, the Chicago Bears. "That's not a fault on this team". I thought our guys had a little more pep in their step, fought hard, gave it everything they had.
"But we're not making the money plays yet". Crowell and Johnson each contributed, as the Browns showed the design they had to win games this season can work when they actually follow the plan.
