The Browns QB race, continued ...: Neither Derek Anderson nor Brady Quinn had a breakout performance last week against the Packers, but Quinn looked sharper and probably holds an advantage heading into the second preseason contest. Anderson has some ground to make up if he's to win back the spot at the top of the depth chart.

The Lions' rookie surprise: Last week against Atlanta, running back Aaron Brown ran 32 yards for one touchdown in the third quarter, then caught a 45-yard TD pass in the fourth. The sixth-round pick could see more playing time vs. the Browns.

The clock: Last week, the Packers racked up 230 yards on the ground against the Browns and kept the defense on the field for nearly 40 minutes. Can coach Eric Mangini's defense regroup at home and stop the Lions' attack?
