Weeden, Cameron shine as Browns roll past Lions

CLEVELAND -- Brandon Weeden threw two touchdown passes to Jordan Cameron and perhaps ended any more discussion about a quarterback competition in Cleveland, leading the Browns to a 24-6 win over the Detroit Lions on Thursday night.

Weeden connected on TD passes of 10 and 5 yards to Cameron in the first half as the Browns (2-0) opened a 17-0 lead. Weeden finished 8 of 12 for 117 yards. In two weeks, he's 18 of 25 for 229 yards and three TDs.

Browns running back Trent Richardson made his NFL preseason debut and gained 33 yards on six carries, showing some elusiveness and power.

Quarterback Matt Stafford completed 11 of 16 for 74 yards for the Lions (1-1), but was without superstar wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who sat out with a bruised knee.
