CLEVELAND, OH (WTVB) - It’s pre-season game number two tonight for the Lions as they take on the Browns in Cleveland. Last week in Detroit’s opening exhibition win over the Jets at Ford Field, Lion’s quarterback Matthew Stafford stuck to his favorite receiver with all 3 of Stafford’s completions going to Calvin Johnson. Tonight, Stafford is expected to work running back Reggie Bush into the passing game. Otherwise, it’s another chance for rookies and second stringers to make their case for possibly ending up on Detroit’s 53-man roster.
Meanwhile, Forbes magazine’s annual value rankings for NFL teams released Wednesday put the Lions in 28th place out of the 32 teams with an estimated worth of $900 million along with being the only franchise to lose money last year with an operating deficit of $3.5 million.
