TE Joseph Fauria has career day for Lions
Michael Rothstein – ESPN.com
He gas pedaled, windmilled and, finally, Cabbage Patched before raising his right arm and holding up three fingers.
The touchdown-catching, dance-creating, fun-loving world of Detroit Lions rookie tight end Joseph Fauria continued with one finger for every pass he was thrown on Sunday and one for every touchdown he scored in a 31-17 win over the Cleveland Browns.
And at this point, it is tough to say what he’ll do next.
Lions’ DeAndre Levy humble about two-interception performance
Josh Katzenstein – The Detroit News
Humble as ever, Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy said he just played “OK” after having two interceptions and seven tackles in a 31-17 victory over the Browns on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.
“Other than the two picks, I don’t think I played too well,” Levy said.
As Levy gave his modest assessment, fellow linebacker Stephen Tulloch leaned into the interview huddle and said, “Man, you played good.”
Detroit Lions’ Reggie Bush able to exploit matchup after second-half adjustment
Justin Rogers – MLive.com
The Detroit Lions signed running back Reggie Bush to be a dangerous dual threat out of the backfield, but through two quarters against the Cleveland Browns, he hadn’t done much of anything.
At the half, Bush had 14 rushing yards on seven carries and wasn’t targeted once in the passing game. Part of the reason he wasn’t more involved in the offense was because the Browns surprised the Lions with a different defensive look than Detroit expected.
Cleveland Browns defense offers no excuses, accepts blame in loss to Detroit Lions
Tom Reed – Cleveland.com
Quarterback Brandon Weeden panicked and threw away the Browns’ last chance at victory Sunday in the fourth quarter with an awkward, underhand toss that was intercepted.
That play didn’t stop inside linebacker Craig Robertson from shouldering the blame for a 31-17 loss to the Detroit Lions in FirstEnergy Stadium. The second-year player had difficulty defending tight ends in the second half and containing running back Reggie Bush on swing passes. In the locker room, Robertson calmly cataloged his mistakes to reporters.
