Quarterback Brandon Weeden looked good in this year's preseason debut. He looked even better on Thursday night against the Lions, finishing 8-of-12 for 117 yards and two TDs (137. rating).
Granted, the Lions aren't exactly world-beaters on defense, but Weeden once again showed poise, accuracy and a propensity to take deep shots.
Weeden threw some pretty passes, including a teardrop just over receiver Josh Gordon's shoulder for a 31-yard gain. The second-year quarterback capped that drive with a touchdown pass to Jordan Cameron that only the big tight end could catch.
A second touchdown to Cameron capped another nice night for Weeden, who is rapidly becoming a viable backup in fantasy leagues.
