Browns QB Quinn excels in losing effort

Aug 19, 2007 - 3:20 AM CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Brady Quinn played well in his NFL preseason debut on Saturday, but the Detroit Lions won the game, 23-20.

With the Browns trailing 23-7, Quinn stepped on the field with 9 minutes, 20 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and completed 13-of-20 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns.

Quinn's first scoring strike was for four yards to Efrem Hill with 2:41 left. He tossed a 6-yard strike to Jerome Harrison with 24 seconds left. Detroit capitalized on Cleveland miscues and built a 16-0 halftime lead.

Lions quarterback Jon Kitna finished 12-of-16 for 137 yards and one score. Three of his passes were intended for rookie Calvin Johnson, but none were completed.

It was a disastrous opening quarter for Browns starting quarterback Derek Anderson. On the game's first play from scrimmage, Anderson was stripped of the ball and the Lions recovered at Cleveland's 23.

Cleveland's "other" quarterbacks had differing rates of success.

Anderson finished 6-of-8 for 65 yards with one interception and one fumble while Frye completed 5-of-10 for 42 yards and one interception.

Ken Dorsey was 7-of-9 passes for 65 yards and Jason Wright ran it in from one yard out.

Detroit running back T.J. Duckett had an impressive third quarter, accumulating 61 yards rushing and receiving and a 15-yard touchdown run at 2:23 that made it 23-0.
