Browns lose to Lions 30-28

Published: Fri, August 19, 2011 @ 11:24 p.m.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Colt McCoy threw three touchdown passes — two to tight end Evan Moore — in the first half, but the Cleveland Browns blew a 15-point lead after halftime and lost 30-28 to the Detroit Lions on Friday night in a penalty-filled exhibition that showed both teams have plenty to fix in the next three weeks.

McCoy finished 10 of 18 for 96 yards, his second straight solid performance running first-year Browns coach Pat Shurmur’s new West Coast offense. McCoy was victimized by a few drops and wasn’t as sharp as in last week’s win over the Super Bowl champion Packers. However, the second-year QB showed poise, ran away from Ndamukong Suh and didn’t force any throws while playing most of the first half.

The Lions (2-0) trailed by 10 entering the fourth, but got a 20-yard TD pass from Drew Stanton and Dave Rayner’s 48-yard field goal.

The Brown's first team looked good and out played Detroit's first team during the first half.

The second half was another story though. Poor passes by thrid string QB Brown, poor timing, fumbles, penalties. poor judgement. What a mess. Not much to brag about in the second half.
