DETROIT: The running game figures to be an afterthought again for the NFL's most pass-happy team. Reggie Bush is the new No. 1 back, but he was brought in more for his receiving skills and ability in space. His carries will come working off the passing game and likely be a lot of delays and draws, and often out of the shotgun. Mikel Leshoure, a tentative plodder who was a disaster last season, will hopefully perform better in his second season back from a torn Achilles. Joique Bell has a chance to push Leshoure for playing time, but his strength is more in the passing game, making him the likely odd man out. Expect a lot more of Matthew Stafford sitting back in shotgun with three and four receivers. Calvin Johnson is obviously the focal point, often working up the seam and breaking off when safeties sit deep. With no reliable No. 2 receiver, Brandon Pettigrew is Stafford's second option, working the middle of the field while Nate Burleson acts as a third receiver. Bush will have a big role in the screen game and figures to flex out to the slot at times. Ryan Broyles remains a question mark coming off a torn ACL, and Mike Thomas must prove he can make plays downfield. Leshoure figures to take the reps when they get down near the goal line, though Stafford runs the occasional sneak. The Lions took a gamble on fifth overall pick DE Ezekiel Ansah and added newcomer DL Jason Jones from Seattle to bolster a weak pass rush (34 sacks, T-20th in NFL). Former Texans SS Glover Quin adds toughness to the secondary that is still searching for a serviceable No. 2 corner behind top CB Chris Houston. They did little else to improve their sagging defense that allowed 24+ points in each of their final eight games and had multiple takeaways just five times in 2012. Detroit has the 2nd-hardest NFL schedule in 2013.
CLEVELAND: New head coach Rob Chudzinski was the Browns' play-caller during their brief renaissance in 2007 and '08, and he and new offensive coordinator Norv Turner will bring a run-based offense that sets up the deep passing game. Trent Richardson is by far the best skill position player they have, and will obviously take a huge workload. It's a power running game that will pound it between the tackles. Richardson should be a three-down player, as the Browns have only fringe roster talent for the rest of their depth chart. This year's offense will take many more shots downfield. Brandon Weeden will work off a lot of play-action, and Turner's offenses typically look for the big-hitters up the seam. Josh Gordon should be an excellent fit for this game plan. Turner and Chudzinski both like to use the tight end frequently, and Jordan Cameron is enough of an athlete to be used in a variety of ways. Slot receiver Davone Bess is sort of a Plan B underneath if Cameron struggles. The Browns figure to remain very run-heavy near the goal line, mostly because of Richardson's ability to churn out tough yards. The Browns are desperate for a defensive playmaker, as they forced 0-to-1 turnovers 13 times last year. In comes new defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who has implemented an ultra-aggressive 3-4 defense that blitzes from all angles and relies heavily on speed. Rookie DE/LB Barkevious Mingo and free agents LB Paul Kruger (8.5 sacks) and DE Desmond Bryant (5-year, $34M deal) should help a mediocre defensive line that tallied only 15 sacks at home. ILB D'Qwell Jackson rarely misses a tackle opportunity, and CB Joe Haden and SS T.J. Ward comprise a great tandem in the secondary with Haden shutting down opposing No. 1 wideouts and Ward finishing off plays with bone-jarring hits.

*Lions-Browns Preview* ======================


The Cleveland Browns are expected to look to quarterback Brandon Weeden to lead them the rest of the way after Brian Hoyer's season-ending injury. The Detroit Lions are hoping they don't have the difficult task of trying to replace All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson for a second straight week.

The Browns will try to remain in first place in the AFC North by earning a fourth straight win for the first time in four seasons Sunday against the visiting Lions.

Cleveland had a fine story going with Ohio native and Browns fan Hoyer leading the team to a pair of victories after an 0-2 start under Weeden. That ended when the fifth-year journeyman tore a knee ligament while running for a first down in the opening quarter against Buffalo last Thursday night.

Weeden came in to lead Cleveland (3-2) to a 37-24 victory and helped it grab a share of first place for the first time since Week 9 in 1995. The franchise left for Baltimore after that season and the NFL wouldn't return to Cleveland until 1999.

"It's good, but we're not overjoyed," safety T.J. Ward said. "We're not celebrating and that's what I like about us. We're staying grounded and we're focused on the next win and the next team."

Weeden will try to lead the Browns to their first four-game win streak since Dec. 10, 2009-Jan. 3, 2010. The team's first-round draft pick in 2012 has played in 18 games but appeared to have lost his starting job after spraining his right thumb in a 14-6 loss to Baltimore on Sept. 15.

"I think that he has a sense of confidence of what he's been able to do. We'll get him back out there for another week of practice, and I think that will help him get better and get ready to play even more so," coach Rod Chudzinski said.

Weeden is banking on Josh Gordon to help him over the next few weeks. The second-year receiver has 18 catches for 303 yards and two touchdowns during the win streak, and Chudzinski said the franchise has no plans to trade him.

The Lions' Matthew Stafford would love to see one of his top targets on the field this week. Johnson was forced to sit out last Sunday's 22-9 loss to Green Bay because of an injured right knee, and his status is unclear for this week.

Detroit (3-2) failed to score 21 or more points for the first time this season last week, and Reggie Bush rushed for 44 yards after gaining a season-high 139 in a 40-32 win over Chicago on Sept. 29.

Stafford was also sacked a career high-tying five times.

"We have to have guys step up," he said. "I have to play better. As an offense, we know we have to play better."

Detroit receiver Nate Burleson is expected to miss a third straight game because of a broken left arm that was suffered in a car accident.

"Both of those, Calvin and Nate, are great players and Calvin might be one of the greatest, if not the greatest of all-time," said receiver Kris Durham, who scored Detroit's lone touchdown against Green Bay. "We just have to figure out how to make some plays for Matt because he's standing back there with a lot of pressure in his face."

The Lions could face more pressure, as the Browns are tied for third in the league with 18 sacks and are fourth with 301.8 yards allowed per game.

"We've got to right our ship up front, which we will. We've got to figure out how to run against this good Cleveland defense and we need to keep Matt standing up because they're good at sacks, too," guard Rob Sims said.

Stafford managed to stay upright enough in the previous matchup with Cleveland to lead Detroit to a thrilling win. He connected with Brandon Pettigrew on a 1-yard touchdown as time expired in a 38-37 victory Nov. 22, 2009.

The Lions are making their first trip to Cleveland since a 13-10 victory Oct. 23, 2005. Detroit has won 17 of 22 all-time meetings, including the playoffs.
