Reggie Bush broke free for an 86-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, one of only a few offensive highlights Friday night as the Detroit Lions edged the Jacksonville Jaguars 13-12 in a penalty-filled game.
Calvin Johnson played for the first time this preseason, catching two passes for 27 yards, but Matthew Stafford was intercepted once and the Lions struggled in the red zone.
Blake Bortles threw for 158 yards and a touchdown for the Jaguars. Jacksonville started Chad Henne, but Bortles - the third pick in this year's draft - was impressive in relief. He completed 10 of 16 passes, including a 13-yard touchdown to Allen Hurns.
The teams combined for 27 penalties.
