Titus Young caught a season-long 57-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and used his speed to turn a three-yard slant into a 25-yard gain on the Lions' final scoring drive of the game.
This one had disaster written all over it.
Blown double-digit leads, a backup QB playing like an All-Pro, a plethora of penalties, a suddenly stagnant offense, and a last-second loss that would become the death knell of a long-anticipated playoff berth.
Weve all witnessed this script before. So much so that as the typical unfolded on Sunday at Ford Field, the defeat would have...
Sammie Hill hasn't put up eye-popping numbers the past two weeks -- five tackles and half a sack -- but the third-year lineman has played some of his best football with the Lions shorthanded.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The flip-flop of results, emotions and opportunity in the last week is typical of how fast playoff scenarios can change late in the NFL season.
A week ago, the Lions were lamenting how a loss to the Saints kept them from taking advantage of week when the primary competitors for a wild-card berth in the NFC playoffs had lost.
This week, the Lions and Falcons...
The Lions came out ahead in their slugfest vs. the Vikings with a 34-28 win at Ford Field. Detroit stays in the playoff race at 8-5 while Minnesota continues to sink at 2-11.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford showed off his golden arm as he completed 20 of 29 passes for 227 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Keiland Williams ended up leading the running attack...
The Lions must find a way to win two of the final three games to ensure a playoff spot.
Eight wins. The Lions have won eight games. For the first time in eleven years, the Lions will not have a losing season. Since Bobby Ross quit midseason, and former U-of-M head coach Gary Moeller took the reins. Since Charlie Batch was the starting quarterback. Since Desmond Howard was the star returner. Since Jason Hanson . . . okay, bad example. Lost in the hubbub of a missed...
Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said the Lions grabbed the facemask of Joe Webb, but downplayed its significance. Considering it may have been the missed call that keeps the Lions in the playoff hunt, you’d think there was significance to it in Detroit especially.
Stafford pass went incomplete. It was intended for Pettigrew. Ben Graham set to punt at the Lions 47.
The ball finally bounced our way. It’s ironic that the Detroit Lions, who have committed penalties this year in every conceivable way imaginable, won the game when a penalty wasn’t called. The Lions sure know how to make it interesting.

A minor technical snafu (I didn't press record right away) chopped off the intro and the first minute or so, but here's this week's Fireside Chat. A strange and bizarre-feeling win, but . . . yes, a win. Subscribe (and rate!) via iTunes if you are an iTunesy person like myself.
The Lions didn't have an answer for Joe Webb.
The Vikings have a banged-up secondary. The Lions have a banged-up backfield. And so the Lions are throwing. And they’re winning. It’s 21-7 through one quarter. Matthew Stafford has completed nine of 11 passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew and receiver Titus Young, two of the players who picked up…
