Stafford still lacks finish in Lions 17-6 win


ORCHARD PARK, NY – Lions rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford closed the pre-season much like he opened it: by showing plenty of promise but little finish.

The same goes for the Buffalo Bills offense, which could certainly use a healthy Terrell Owens to help it find the end zone following a 17-6 loss to Detroit in each team's pre-season finale Thursday night.

Fullback Jerome Felton scored on a 1-yard plunge late in first half to open the scoring for the Lions (3-1). Tristan Davis then sealed the win with a 79-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter in a game in which the Lions had 249 yards rushing and 422 yards offense.

With NFL teams prepared to make their final cuts this weekend, Lions reserve cornerback Chris Roberson made a case to make the team with an interception and a fumble recovery.
