The Cleveland Browns are expected to look to quarterback Brandon Weeden to lead them the rest of the way after Brian Hoyer’s season-ending injury. The Detroit Lions are hoping they don’t have the difficult task of trying to replace All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson for a second straight week.
Browns cornerback Joe Haden says he can’t worry about whether Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson will play Sunday after missing last week’s game with a knee injury.
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said there were many times last season Calvin Johnson played on Sundays even when he did not practice during the week. Last week, though, was not one of those times, and this week may not be either.
As one of just six NFC teams with a winning record, the Detroit Lions’ solid start has put them in a position to have a successful season.
The Detroit Lions might again head into Sunday without wide receiver Calvin Johnson, and after struggling without Johnson last week at Green Bay, the Lions face what Reggie Bush says is an even better defense.
When the Cleveland Browns traded star running back Trent Richardson away to the Indianapolis Colts, it looked like the team had decided to start a process of deconstructing and rebuilding early.
Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas was just shy of his 11th birthday the last time the Cleveland Browns were in first place through five games.
The quiet in the locker room after the game was almost a respite for the Minnesota Vikings.
Part of being a Lions fan is looking forward to the NFL Draft in week two of the regular season.
Not long ago, Trent Richardson was viewed as a cornerstone for Cleveland’s future.
