Quick Take: Browns rally to tame Lions

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Friday's preseason games

» Around the League's Browns correspondent Marc Sessler says Browns rookie Brandon Weedenlooked a lot better than his ugly box score indicated. Weeden looked calm and showed a strong arm. We'll take Sessler's word for it.

» Colt McCoy did what Colt McCoy does. He moved the ball, gave the team some energy, but had no points to show for it.

» Cleveland's starters looked sloppy overall. They had eight first-half penalties and the Lions pass rush forced two turnovers.

» The first Browns touchdown of the year was scored by a man named Brad Smelley.
