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

Cleveland Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer was injured in one of the final plays of the third quarter in the game against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. It's the fourth defensive score this season for the Lions, seventh fumble recovery this season for the Lions, and first fumble recovery returned for a touchdown for the Lions since October 2015 (36 games).

The 5-4 Detroit Lions will travel to the Windy City in Week 11 to face a divisional rival, the Chicago Bears.

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

But after the game, the X-Rays on the rookie quarterback came back clear, and he's set to play next week.

Detroit closed to within 10-3 with exactly 6:00 left in the initial period on Matt Prater's 46-yard field goal. Receiver Kenny Britt caught a short pass, slipped past Lawson and scored on the 19-yard play. 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.

After an unfortunate sequence of events to end the first half, Cleveland put the ball in the hands of Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson Jr. and Kizer. One had to wonder, could this be the beginnings of an ugly Browns game? This team makes mistakes - witness the end of the first half - but it has not quit or given up.

The Lions drew even with the Browns at 24-24 on Stafford's eight-yard touchdown pass to Riddick with 52 seconds to play in the third quarter. Njoku was unable to get both feet down on a fade from Kizer on first down and on second down, with:15 on the clock Kizer kept it and was stuffed for no-gain.

Kizer left the game with a rib injury after taking a hit from Quandre Diggs. Cody Kessler took over on third down and was promptly sacked. Detroit is now 16-4 all-time against Cleveland, winning the last four meetings.

End Result - Close, competitive, not good enough.
