DETROIT (AP/WATE) - Jeff Wolfert kicked a 45-yard field goal with 28 seconds left to lift the Cleveland Browns to a 19-17 win over the Detroit Lions on Friday night.
The Browns are owned by Knoxville businessman Jimmy Haslam who purchased the team for more than $1 billion dollars last month.
Detroit stopped Adonis Thomas on a 2-point conversion run with 6:05 left to keep the lead, but couldn't run enough clock to keep the ball away from the Browns.
The Lions' last shot ended when rookie Kellen Moore was intercepted by David Sims at the Cleveland 36 with 34 seconds left.
The banged-up Browns took another hit when rookie Brandon Weeden threw to Mohamed Massaquoi and the wide receiver left the game with a head injury.
Weeden was 3 of 9 for 62 yards with an interception and a fumble.
Detroit backup quarterback Shaun Hill led two touchdown drives in the first half to put the Lions ahead 14-3 in the first half.
When the reserves took over in the second half, Cleveland outscored the Lions 16-3.
Former Vol Montario Hardesty gained 7 yards on 4 carries for the Browns.
