Since Detroit was out of timeouts and a replay review stopped a running clock, a 10-second runoff was assessed, ending the game. Golden Tate was the only receiver to catch more than five passes. Not exactly. While it may not be fully apples to oranges, the comparison of this play against the Vikings' one isn't exactly apples to apples either. "I thought touchdown, and that was it", Tate told Fox 2. "I don't think it's anything that is going to knock him out for an extended period of time". They're the only undefeated team in the NFC and still look like the best in the conference. I don't know but if Matt Stafford ever needs some advice in keeping composure with a bunch of defenders about to sack you, he may want to talk to this lady. "It's definitely a gut-wrenching feeling, but that's the rule". You're making a choice when you walk out there, however you handle it. I get that the clock should have stayed running and would have likely run out if the correct call had been made.
The Lions are the underdogs in this match but there's not that much value for them in a game where most fans are expecting them to lose.
Witnessing the Atlanta Falcons hand the Green Bay Packers a severe has left many National Football League betting sites wondering whether Matt Ryan and company are the best team in the NFC. With under two minutes remaining, the Lions found a way back into the game immediately.
The Lions have not officially announced Caldwell's extension, but ESPN's Michael Rothstein has confirmed with the team that "the deal was struck months ago". But you have to wonder what Caldwell's silence says to his players, who are young men accustomed to expressing themselves. Not even when a bad rule is correctly applied, even though it remains a bad rule that needs to be publicly denounced. "Our guys fought hard". "Our game has long provided a powerful platform for dialogue and positive change in many communities throughout our nation", Ford said in her statement.
Replays showed Tate was touched down with about 10 seconds to play.
"I had a feeling his knee was down", Poole said.
"I'm not going to get into the details", Caldwell said. If that's the rule, that's the rule. They are also 1-1 with the over/under total, hitting the over in their lone home game, a 35-23 win over the Cardinals.
"I have a lot of African-American friends, and they can't stand alone", Linsey said.
"Never saw one like that", Quin said.
The Lions are 2-0 for the first time since 2011 and have been surprisingly tough on defense, especially against the run. With two picks, and a TD return against the Falcons, he could be headed for No. 2.
Detroit could have done one simple thing to completely avoid the entire runoff situation - they could have thrown the ball in the end zone.
