The Cleveland Browns were starting to show some life under new quarterback Brian Hoyer but that all ended this week before their week six game with the Detroit Lions. According to ESPN on Oct. 12, Hoyer has been placed on the IR with an injured knee and will miss the rest of the season. Here is a look at the big game this afternoon and how you can see the Lions vs. Browns live stream online.
The Browns really looked like they were turning a corner. After trading their best player in Trent Richardson, they went on a three game winning streak, but that ended up with new quarterback Hoyer falling to the IR. Now, the Browns have to hope that Brandon Weeden can somehow come in and keep things moving in the right direction.
One of the keys to winning for the Browns is their solid defense, ranked seventh against the pass and 8th against the run. They will need that against Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions. With weapons like Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush, this is a team that can win in a lot of different ways.
Detroit is favored over Cleveland by 2.5.
