Detroit Lions News – Stafford And Fauria Lead Lions Over Browns

FFLRReport_Feature

The Detroit Lions went into Cleveland to take on the red hot Browns and left with a 31-17 victory, with the help of the Matthew Stafford to Joseph Fauria connection.

Outscoring Cleveland 24-0 in the second half, the Lions were looking at a 17-7 deficit after having gotten out to a quick 7-0 lead in Sunday’s game.

Fauria, who turned all three of his receptions into touchdowns, helped compliment a depleted wide receiving group who were without veteran Nate Burleson and had a very hobbled Calvin Johnson in the lineup.

The victory brings Detroit to 4-2 and are on top of the NFC North division as they beat the Chicago Bears, who are also 4-2, giving them the tie-breaker.
