  • GAME SUMMARY:

    The Lions wrapped up the 2012 preseason with a 38-32 home victory over the Buffalo Bills. The Lions victory was powered by 28 straight points in the first quarter after the visitors reached the endzone first. In limited action Matt Stafford connected on 2-3 passes including a 24-yard pass to Calvin Johnson to open the scoring. That would be the end of their nights. Second year running back Mikel Leshoure saw his first action in a Lions uniform as the second round pick lead the team with 43 yards on 15 carries and scored the second touchdown for the Lions while also catching a 33-yard pass from Stafford. Rookie Ryan Broyles would lead the Lions in receiving with 54 yards on three catches. Cornerback Justin Miller would end a potential game winning drive by the Bills with an interception on the Lions 14-yard line with the clock ticking down.

    For a team that has been looking to bring in running back help it was a positive sign to finally see Leshoure running the ball. "When he got the ball in his hands, he looked good," said quarterback Matthew Stafford after the game. "It's going to be a process for him to do what he has to do to stay in game shape with two weeks off."

    We're going to need him," Head Coach Schwartz said. "He made a guy miss on the edge," Schwartz said. "His best play was the touchdown run. He had a cutback available to him, but he smelled the goal line and put his head down and scored."

    In a fairly meaningless game, the Lions out gained the winless Bills 389-298. Detroit, however, committed nine penalties for 102 yards. This is something head coach Jim Schwartz won't be too happy about. The Lions did get three interceptions and one fumble, this proved too much for the visitors to overcome.

    With the preseason over, the Lions (2-2) turn their attention to their opening opponent, the St. Louis Rams.
