Missed the game and the whole vibe of it...taking my lunch now.


Just looking at the box score......5 sacks by the "D" is an "A" in my book. Looks like Abdullah had a couple of good runs. Lovin' that we had a punt return for a TD.

Nice road win against a team that always plays tough against Motown.

Ziggy humiliated Flowers the entire first half. Quin & Slay were outstanding. Prater booted one for 56 yards. Stafford managed the clock well. Minus one big run from Abdullah it was a typical pedestrian effort but I admire their patience and desire to improve the run game. Caldwell successfully challenged a terrible spot that resulted in a failed 4th down conversion for the G-Men.

Fun, well rounded game from the Lions. Loved it.

In Quinn we trust!

The Lions made a nice update to their uniforms for this season.

Yep, I was commenting all throughout the game how excellent the unis looked. I almost mistook them for the Cowboys after flipping through channels!

First loss of the season. Well deserved. Home game and got beat early. Defense did as well as they could against an NFL best offense. 3 picks and couldn't win. TD called back in the end.

4 points separates the Lions from being best in the NFC.

Not to worry so much....'tis a long season.

I'm less angry now after seeing pics that show Tate was down and touched before crossing the goal line. The automatic runoff might end up being discussed in the off season. Ebron dropped two passes. D couldn't stop the run and the drive after Slay's second pick was pathetic. Victory was within reach. Thankfully this team is still on the right path. A lot of season left to improve.

Lions are playing tough, playing together, I thought they would win. Great game, I don't get the run off business at all. NFC North might go down to the wire this year!

Lions played very well and should have won the game really. I understand the 10 second runoff but I wish the Dirty Birds wasn't in that position to be "saved by the bell." That pick 6 in the 2nd quarter was a good play by Quinn and made it a game. Detroit is legit.

Dean Blandino explains the 10 Second Runoff Rule as it applies to the end of Lions v Falcons. The logic behind the rule is flawed. The law assumes there would not be enough time to call a play. Stafford has pulled out miracle plays with less time and I'd wager other teams have as well. Essentially, the Detroit Lions were punished today because refs made a bad call. The actual rules of the NFL dictate mistakes made by the refs can have a direct averse affect on NFL games. Martha needs to take this up in the offseason. Refs stick another dagger in the heart of Detroit.

Former VP of officiating Dean Blandino perfectly explains why Lions lost on game
