NFL roundup: Bills spoil Jared Goff’s Lions debut

The home team Detroit Lions stormed back with 12 fourth-quarter points — including a 28-yard go-ahead field goal from Randy Bullock — to grab a 15-13 lead over the Buffalo Bills Friday night, but Jake Fromm drove the Bills down the field in the closing moments and Tyler Bass nailed a 44-yard field goal to give the Bills a 16-15 win in the preseason opener for both teams.

Fromm completed 8-of-13 passes for 65 yards, while Davis Webb completed 11-of-16 for 90 yards and a touchdown pass to Devin Singletary at the end of the first half that gave the Bills a 10-3 lead. They tacked on another field goal for a 13-3 halftime lead.

Jared Goff, making his Lions debut, led an 18-play, 70-yard drive in the first half that culminated in a game-tying field goal. He finished 7-of-9 through the air with 56 yards.

The Lions got a spark in the fourth quarter from running back Craig Reynolds, who carried the ball six times for 49 yards and had a 24-yard touchdown run that brought the Lions within 13-12.

Titans 23, Falcons 3

Holding out many of their key starters, Tennessee nevertheless rolled past Atlanta in the preseason opener for each team.

The host Falcons, who also sat several starters, couldn’t manage much of anything offensively with just 138 yards, while the Titans chipped away with 18 more plays and 36:33 time of possession to wear Atlanta down.

Logan Woodside and Matt Barkley each threw a touchdown for the Titans while combining for 106 yards passing. Falcons rookie quarterback Feleipe Franks threw for 16 yards and ran for a game-high 76 yards on four carries, including a long of 52.
