The Browns were coming out of a timeout - their last of the half - and it is incumbent upon Jackson to stress game situation to his rookie quarterback.
Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes and the Lions avoided an upset on Sunday, beating the winless Cleveland Browns 38-24 at Ford Field. The Browns now list Kizer as questionable to return.
Kizer was having a good game, he had a touchdown pass while completing 15 of his 24 passes.
Cleveland's backup quarterback, Cody Kessler, entered the proceedings on the final play of the third frame after Kizer departed with an injury. Add the end of the first half and the fact the defense gave up 31 points after starting fast, and it's not tough to see why the Browns lost for the ninth time in nine games. He is, by far, the Lions' biggest receiver. 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.
DeValve found a little bit of redemption with a 35-yard catch in the second half that set up a Browns touchdown. Crowell finished it off with a 6-yard run. Emmanuel Ogbah had two sacks.More news: Apple Lands Reese Witherspoon-Jennifer Aniston Morning Show Drama
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. And there even was a Kenny Britt sighting, as he was able to turn a short pass into a touchdown in the first quarter.
Myles Garrett continues to make things happen when he is on the field.
Kizer left the game with a rib injury after taking a hit from Quandre Diggs.
Did the Browns have a second play not loaded up?
Many questioned the Lions' selection of Eric Ebron as a captain for this game, but he played well, catching 2-of-3 targets for 39 yards.
