Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes and the Lions avoided an upset on Sunday, beating the winless Cleveland Browns 38-24 at Ford Field.
Cleveland's backup quarterback, Cody Kessler, entered the proceedings on the final play of the third frame after Kizer departed with an injury. 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.
Let's recap: the Browns were down by seven, had nearly 11 minutes on the clock, had their backup quarterback in the game, were ripping the Lions on the ground, and Jackson decides to call passes on five of their next six offensive plays.
The tide turned with a rib injury suffered by Browns starting quarterback DeShone Kizer in the third quarter.
A self-driving shuttle launched in Las Vegas - it didn't go well
Las Vegas this week became the first city in the USA to integrate a self-driving shuttle bus into its regular flow of traffic. None of the eight passengers aboard the driverless vehicle suffered injuries and neither did the truck driver.
Detroit closed to within 10-3 with exactly 6:00 left in the initial period on Matt Prater's 46-yard field goal.

Kizer, Jackson, and the Browns definitely have a lot of work to do.

Cleveland scored the first 10 points of the game, but the Lions rallied to take a 17-10 lead by halftime.
The first half ended with the Browns running out of time at the Lions' 2-yard line and Detroit still in control 17-10. The reason he was hit was because David Njoku missed a block. That gave them the 24-17 lead, but the Lions tied the game, setting up another bad result for the Browns. The Browns' formula when the season started was to play good defense and run the ball; to win conservatively, or at least try to.
