Crowell played his best game of the season in the loss to the Detroit Lions.
The Brown had runs of 21, four, six, 19, 14 and six on this touchdown drive to knot the score at 17 in the third quarter.
What it means: If the Browns played this way all season, there would be unhappiness about the record but credit for an undermanned team competing to win. Browns 0-9 start matches the 1975 team for the second-worst start in team history as they fall to 1-24 under Hue Jackson and have won just 2 of their last 36, 4 of their last 46 and 15 of their last 72. Detroit improved to 5-4 on the season. After being evaluated in the locker room and watching Cody Kessler take some snaps, Kizer went back into the game with 4:28 left in the fourth quarter.
According to a report from the Detroit News, if the Lions want to handle their business and come away with a win over the Browns, they are going to have to do so without a trio of players. Then, after a 29-yard punt return after a three-and-out from the Browns, Stafford found Tate for a 40-yard touchdown, which gave the Lions a two-score advantage.
That being said, in addition to the Lions vs. Browns, there are plenty of other games on the NFL Week 10 schedule for you to enjoy.
Playing with that "dog" he vowed to have after the bye week, Kizer threw a touchdown pass and ran for one in what was clearly his best game of the season - before the injury. Ogbah and Myles Garrett started fast, Kizer looked more comfortable and the Browns were aggressive and successful running the ball. DeShone Kizer opened with a 38-yard completion to receiver Sammie Coates up the far sideline to set up a first-and-goal. The clock expired before Kizer could get everyone lined up in time to kill it. Duke Johnson slammed his helmet in frustration drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that was enforced to start the second half. It went nowhere, and the Lions wisely made sure the Browns could not get up to spike the ball for a field goal try.
Along with Abdullah, the Lions featured a steady diet of running backs on the game-tying drive. Yet another botched opportunity and terrible clock management considering that the Browns had to blow their final timeout with 1:17 to go in the half.
