Lions in Cleveland, set for second preseason tilt
CLEVELAND (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Lions are in Cleveland Thursday night for their 2nd game of the preseason.
The Browns are favored by 2.5 points, in a move which begs the question: how do you handicap an exhibition game, why would you do so, and who bets on it?
Detroit notched a win over the Jets in their preseason opener last Friday, thanks in part to first round draft pick Ziggy Ansah, who returned an intercepted screen pass for a touchdown in the early going.
The focus Thursday night against the Browns, though, will be the sluggish Lions offense.
Matt Stafford was just 3 of 8 in his two series of work, which featured a couple of long completions to Calvin Johnson.
Reggie Bush, meanwhile, had three carries for just 5 yards, and 2 catches for no yards.
