After Benjamin’s punt return was negated by an illegal block in the back, he got the ball on a reverse to the left, and ran past several Detroit defenders before being knocked out of bounds by linebacker DeAndre Levy following a 45-yard gain.
After one quarter of play, the Lions held a 7-0 lead over the Browns.
Matthew Stafford’s one-yard touchdown pass to tight end Joseph Fauria gave the Lions a 7-0 lead over the Browns with 3:27 left to play in the first quarter.
On second-and-goal, Stafford lofted the pass toward the right corner of the end zone, where Fauria high-pointed the ball and out-jumped Browns defensive back
Stafford’s ninth touchdown pass of the season was set up by back-to-back pass-interference penalties on Browns cornerback
The Lions marched 58 yards on nine plays in 4:23.
