CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Cleveland Browns defeated the Detroit Lions in the final game of the preseason Thursday night.

Final score: 20-16

Majority of the starters did not play but it was the last chance for many of the guys to convince the coaches they deserve a spot on the team.

The Browns have until 4 p.m. Saturday to cut their roster down to 53 players.

The young roster is stacked with talent on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball.

One particular group to look at is the wide receivers.

Of course we know about the proven skillset of Landry and Beckham but there are a handful of others that have made some places in camp.

At halftime the Browns left the field up 10-2. The Browns scored off a reception from Dontrell Hillard with 20 seconds left in the second quarter.

Another 6 points came from kicker Austin Seibert.

Running back Trayone Gray scored another touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

It was the final game until the big show.

I expect a lot from us. It is just going to be up to us to go out there and put points up on the board."
