    Epic finish ruined by a bad play call in OT. Everyone expected either a QB sneak or run up the gut. They should have playaction bootlegged and have Hill either throw or run for the 1st down. I do agree that going for it was the best choice, since the secondary cannot be trusted on D. Oh well, it was at least entertaining.

    That was an epic finish. I got in trouble multiple times for yelling in the house.

    The Lions have two weeks to practice on how to tackle the kickoff and punt returners.....four TD's given up in the last two weeks victimized by special teams mishaps. Despite the poor running game today, the Lions could be sitting at 3-1 at the bye break instead of 1-3 we ain't going no where attitude.

    As in the old days Jason Hanson is the Lion's leading scorer as they continue to pile up FG's and not enough TD's win a game.

    I DVR'd this thing and after watching the opening kickoff returned, I flicked over to the Ryder Cup to have a worse time.

    The Tigers will be the only one of the four Detroit major pro sports teams to make the playoffs this year!

    are you calling off the Redwings total season or see them slipping that far when things get back up and going (fingers crossed)

    I don't see the Red Wings missing the playoffs. They have made it 21 straight seasons. The next closest active streak is 8 (San Jose).

    Since baseball is the the most jinxable sport, I decided to ignore the game and convinced myself that they would lose.

    With Porcello pitching, its the one game that you are not sure of that the Tigers will actually win....he needs the long ball with men on base ....other wise anybody getting on base will surely be doubled since the Tigers lead the league into GIDP.....oops this is not the Tiger thread....

    If you are talking about "long ball" in the Lions thread, you must be referring to the opponents' kickoff or punt returns.

    When Sherels scored, Detroit became the first team since at least 1940 to give up a kickoff and a punt return for touchdowns in consecutive games, according to STATS LLC. TheLions allowed scores on a kickoff and punt in last week's 44-41 loss in overtime at Tennessee.

    The Lions head into Philadelphia. The Eagles Are hungry for a win after melting down in Pittsburgh, But the Lions need it more. Philadelphia has a really tough defense and the offense is Due to explode for a lot of points. Michael Vick played very well against them last time. Lucky for the eagles they don't have to face Jahvid Best This time around.

    In Detroit a couple years ago the final was 35-32 With the Lions going crazy With eight minutes to go And scoring two touchdowns. Then they recovered the onside kick.

    Predictions?

    Eagles 27

    Lions 14

    The Eagles don't have anyone on special teams who wants to be there. They don't tackle and on offense nobody opens up lanes so the Lions Really Could run one back. The Lionshave had their woes Special-teams too.

    As far As vick Dropping the pig, I think people have been On him so much that he will correct it I think. Suh and company Have the potential to give vick a very rough time. He had better watch his blindside.

    It Seems like the Lions are having some trouble Figuring things out right now. The Eagles were getting it together except for the vick Dropsies and the special teams.

    But the lions are desperate And they have had two weeks to rest And strategize. I just have the feeling that the Eagles are going to have a very good game at home.

    Hopefully Megatron Has a great day (fantasy team) But the Eagles come through and win Anyhow. Now that I think of that my fantasy team Has a whole Lotta people in this game. I think there are going to be a lot Of Points scored both ways.
    I will stick with my 28-14 eagles final. But the lions are certainly capable of turning that score upside down.
    You guys really need. If they have to lose to anyone I am glad It would be Detroit.
