CLEVELAND (WWJ/AP) – A come from behind win for the Detroit Lions as they beat the Cleveland Browns 30-28 on Friday night.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket, the Lions went into the fourth quarter down by eight and got a touchdown and a field goal to take the final lead in the game.

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 in the loss to the Detroit Lions, 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 entering the fourth, but got a 20-yard TD pass from Drew Stanton and Dave Rayner’s 48-yard field goal.
