Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) – Kellen Moore and Shaun Hill each had a
pair of touchdown passes as the Detroit Lions thumped the Buffalo Bills,
35-13, in the final preseason matchup for both squads.

Hill was 4-for-5 for 69 yards while Moore went 10-for-18 for 78 yards for the
Lions, who went 3-1 in the preseason. Theo Riddick caught two passes, both for

against Minnesota in a NFC North battle.

Thad Lewis had a touchdown pass while Matt Leinart was picked off twice and
went just 3-for-10 for 11 yards for the Bills, who were 2-2 in the preseason.

Buffalo, which went 5-11 in 2012, starts its season at home against New
England in an AFC East matchup.

Hill connected with Pat Edwards for an 8-yard score in the first quarter, and
later hit Kris Durham on a 6-yard TD for a 14-0 lead after 15 minutes.

Joique Bell had a 23-yard touchdown run in the second quarter for a 21-0 lead,
while Dustin Hopkins got the Bills on the board with a 38-yard field goal.
