Lions Vs. Bills Final Score: Kellen Moore Leads Lions To Win After Briefly Losing Lead

The Detroit Lions held off a late Buffalo Bills rally to win 38-32 Thursday and complete the preseason with a 2-2 record.

Detroit led 28-7 after the first quarter, but Buffalo chipped away at the lead after both teams' backups started entering the game. The Lions led 28-24 at the end of the third quarter and a 39-yard field goal by Jason Hanson less than a minute into the fourth quarter extended the lead to 31-24.

The Bills took their first lead since they led 7-0 in the first quarter when Marcus Easley returned Hanson's ensuing kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. Buffalo went for two and converted on a pass from Tyler Thigpen to Easley for a 32-31 lead.

Detroit re-took the lead on their next drive when Kellen Moore drove the Lions 80 yards and capped off the drive with a 1-yard touchdown run.

Moore finished 17-for-30 passing for 211 yards and a rushing touchdown. Mikel Leshoure had 15 carres for 43 yards and a touchdown. The Lions didn't turn the ball over and forced four Buffalo turnovers. The Bills finished this preseason winless.
