Detroit Lions fans: How outraged should you be about that final play?

27 September 2017

It was a close game down to the end and Stafford was at least able to generate a drive down the field to get the team to the red zone for one final shot.

In a video posted on Twitter by 97.1 The Ticket's Evan Jankens, it looked like some food item fell out completely engulfed, and the flames were also roaring inside the hot box. It appeared that they had won the game with eight seconds left on a touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Golden Tate.

Rookie Xander Schauffele (66), US Open champion Brooks Koepka (69) and Jason Dufner (67) are tied for eighth at five-under 133. He turned pro and would get that first PGA Tour win three years later, missing the Tour Championship by one spot in 2012.

Verrett missed last week's game against the Miami Dolphins because of soreness in his surgically repaired left knee and had already been ruled out against the Kansas City Chiefs. A 10-second runoff was required and since the Lions were out of timeouts, the game was over. Elliott's previous career long was in college, a 56-yard field goal. Matt Ryan threw three picks in the win over Detroit, but two of those went off his intended receiver's hands.

The Lions offense is very strong right now. So this game could be a nice barometer for where each is in terms of their readiness to make a run at the NFC crown. The Lions (2-1) would have needed to line up, snap the ball and run a play because it would have been fourth down. What was most impressive about Sunday's near win against the Falcons wasn't that they nearly handed the defending conference champions their first loss of the season, but that they did so without their A-game. Stafford threw an interception on 2nd-and-30 in Falcons' territory which was negated by a foolish holding penalty on the other side of the field by cornerback Desmond Trufant. I get that the clock should have stayed running and would have likely run out if the correct call had been made.

We were all slapped back into reality on Sunday afternoon after the Detroit Lions' sadistically sad loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons actually had their best defensive performance in a couple of seasons against the Green Bay Packers last week. Second, since Tate was going to the ground, the play isn't over until he completes the process of the catch - terminology Lions fans should know all too well, given it was spawned from a Calvin Johnson reversed touchdown years ago. The president said National Football League owners who are dealing with a protesting player should "get that son of a bitch off the field".

Saints vs. Panthers: Highlights, game tracker and more
Benjamin injured his left knee in the first quarter after a Saints' defender fell on the back of his leg after a short catch. The Panthers won four of the first five games between the two teams, with a team built out of plenty of Saints players.

Detroit tied it before the end of the quarter. They made or failed to make plays and decisions that put themselves at the mercy of a questionable rule, and for that, they bear some of the blame. A pair of stingy defenses await in the Vikings and Panthers over the next two weeks, but Stafford's efficiency should make the Lions a tough foe for anyone. The Detroit Lions Matt Prater hit three including two from over 50 yards.
