Matthew Stafford threw a touchdown pass, rookie Jahvid Best had a 51-yard run and Aaron Brown scored twice in the fourth quarter to lift the Lions to a 35-27 win over Cleveland in a preseason game Saturday night.

Stafford was 13 of 17 for 141 yards and threw a touchdown pass to Bryant Johnson on Detroit’s first drive, connecting with a receiver on a high pass in the end zone for the second straight week.

Stafford handed off to Best for a 51-yard run on Detroit’s first play, threw a short pass to the first-round pick that he turned into a 10-yard gain with a juke on the second and lofted a 7-yard TD to Johnson on the third.

Lions LB DeAndre Levy, who was slowed by a back injury during training camp, left the game with a groin injury on the game’s first drive.
