Lions activate Taylor Decker from PUP list ahead of Browns game

12 November 2017

That wasn't the worst part of Cleveland's first-half performance.

Detroit already knew they'd be without starting right guard T.J. After a 38-yard pass completion from quarterback DeShone Kizer to Sammie Coates, Zane Gonzalez booted a 23-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead with 11:30 to go in the opener. The rookie did not throw an interception in the first three quarters. Of the 22 scores Cleveland has allowed, 17 have been touchdowns and they've allowed all 5 field goal tries. 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). Starting defensive end Ziggy Ansah (back) was doutbful, and is confirmed inactive for today.
