DeShone Kizer called the ill-fated QB sneak on his own

Cleveland came out of the locker room inspired for the second half, and quickly deadlocked the score at 17-17 on an 85-yard drive culminating in Isaiah Crowell's 7-yard run around the left side at the 11:01 juncture of the third period. The 21 passes and 232 yards were both the second best totals of Kizer's career, trailing only a game against the Indianapolis Colts when he was 22-for-47 with 242 yards passing.

Kizer played well until he was hurt, then came back and did what he could.

He caught a pass along the sideline and powered past Lions cornerback Nevin Lawson, but Lawson was able to reach back, strip the ball and return it 44 yards for the touchdown that put the Lions ahead 17-10. Detroit improved to 5-4 on the season. "I saw a guy who was competing and playing quarterback".

See how Twitter reacted to the touchdown and the Browns' lead. The touchdown came on a good read, as Kizer saw a blitz and threw to the hot receiver (Britt), who was able to make someone miss and score.

The Cleveland Browns gave themselves a shot at their first win Sunday against the Detroit Lions - perhaps their best shot of the season except for going to overtime against Tennessee.

But the Browns inexplicably called a quarterback sneak - or Kizer had the freedom to audible into one - Kizer was stopped, and the clock ran out.

Emmanuel Ogbah had four sacks, and Christian Kirksey and Joe Schobert each added a sack. As a result, Zane Gonzalez had to kick a field goal. The second quarter belonged to the Lions. The Week 10 matchup was much closer than most anticipated, with the Browns putting up 10 unanswered points to start the contest. "That's how you win games".

The Browns, of course, have no hopes of a second-half turnaround that would suddenly vault them to playoff contention. "He's a good player".
