The Detroit Lions visit the Cleveland Browns in Week 6 of the season. This is a game that has trap written all over it. The Lions are coming off a disappointing loss at Green Bay and might feel a little let down facing perennial basement dweller Cleveland Browns. Couple that let down with Calvin Johnson’s knee injury it would be easy to mail this game in.

Speaking of mailing it in, it looked as if Cleveland was doing that after week 2 when they traded Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. If they management was mailing it in someone forget to tell the Browns who have gone on a three game win streak since the Richardson trade.
So with no Calvin Johnson or Nate Burleson who will Matthew Stafford turn to get the tough yards. Brandon Pettigrew has gained the trust of Stafford so look for him to get targeted when the Lions need some clutch yardage.

Pettigrews’s fellow tight end, Tony Scheffler will miss the game with a concussion. With a lack of receivers able to play, Joseph Fauria may get a opportunity to make an impact.
