Cleveland, OH – Matthew Stafford completed 6-of-10 passes for 28, in the second preseason game for both squads.
Colt McCoy looked sharp again for the Browns. The former Texas star completed 10-of-18 passes for 96 yards and three touchdowns, while backup Seneca Wallace took over in the second half and completed six throws for 40 yards.
Armond Smith ripped off an 81-yard touchdown run and Evan Moore led the Browns in receiving, catching three passes for 40 yards and two scores.
It was a seesaw battle through three quarters that left the Lions trailing 28-20 after three, but Stanton connected on a 20-yard touchdown pass to J.J. Finley to pull the Lions within a point, and Dave Rayner connected on a 48- yard field goal attempt with 9:51 remaining to give the Lions the victory.
