Lions Vs. Browns Score: Detroit Lead Trimmed To 14-10 After Three Quarters

The Detroit Lions still lead their preseason opener against the Cleveland, but a third quarter Browns touchdown has whittled an 11-point lead to just 14-10 as the fourth quarter begins.

Rookie Lions quarterback Kellen Moore saw action in the third quarter, and the former Boise State standout struggled, completing just two of nine passes for 22 yards. Moore replaced back-up Shaun Hill, who tossed a second quarter three-yard touchdown pass to Stefan Logan.

Cleveland finally scored a touchdown midway through the third quarter on an 12-yard Seneca Wallace pass to Brad Smelley, capping an eight-play, 43-yard drive. Wallace is the third quarterback of the game for the Browns, after Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy took snaps in the first half.
