Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - Jerome Felton scored the game's only touchdown to help the Detroit Lions beat the Buffalo Bills, 14-6, in each team's preseason finale.

Dan Orlovsky went 12-of-21 for 114 yards and a score for the Lions (4-0). Artose Pinner led the game in rushing yardage, posting 78 yards on 23 carries.

Gibran Hamdan completed 18-of-26 passes for 158 yards, while Steve Johnson led both teams in receiving with 74 yards on eight receptions. The Bills (2-2) managed only 228 yards of total offense, failing to score a touchdown all game.

Buffalo got its only points of the first half early, as Rian Lindell hit a 32-yard field goal to put the Bills up 3-0.

The Lions stormed back with 14 consecutive points. A safety and a Jason Hanson field goal put Detroit up 5-3 after the first quarter.

Felton caught a nine-yard touchdown pass from Orlovsky to cap a nine-play, 61- yard drive with 11:03 left in the half, and the Lions would add their second safety of the game later in the quarter to account for the 14-3 score at halftime.

Lindell added a 45-yard field goal early in the fourth to cap the scoring at 14-6.

Detroit will head to Atlanta to face the Falcons in their season opener while Buffalo plays the Seattle Seahawks at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Both games are on September 7.
