The Cleveland Browns enter the half with a 14-7 lead against the Detroit Lions. The Lions seem out of sorts on offense and their dominant defensive line hasn’t been impactful. For the Browns new/old starting QB Brandon Weeden has thrown for 2 TDs and 1 INT looking better then weeks past but still having some difficulties. The Browns defense has done a great job of holding Calvin Johnson from having a big game.
For the half Reggie Bush has 7 carries for 14 yards and total the Lions have only run for 27 yards. Matthew Stafford has only been sacked once, he was run OB behind the line, throwing for 83 yards on 10-22 passing. “Megatron” has only 1 reception for 7 yards and dropped a huge 1st down.
Weeden has thrown for 135 yards on 12 for 20 passing. They have run for 115 yards with 45 coming on a 45 yard end around to Travis Benjamin. Willis McGahee has 8 carries for 33 yards for a solid 4.1 YPC. Josh Gordon has 4 reception for 79 yards. On defense the front 7 hasn’t been able to get pressure on Stafford all day but has shut down the run game. Chris Owens and Buster Skrine have played well and deflected a number of passes.
The Browns get the ball after the half and will try to build on their 10 point lead. How will Johnson’s knee respond to the down time? Will Bush get loose? Will Weeden have another turnover or continue to go to a number of receivers. A picture is worth a lot of words here as fans celebrate with Chris Ogbonnaya after his TD reception:
