The first half of the Lions home game against the Cowboys saw the Lions Offensive line bullying the Boys all over the field.  Calvin Johnson dominated Brandon Carr.  Dez Bryant was a non factor for almost the entire first half. The Lions Defensive Line was getting consistent pressure on Tony Romo.  The Lions DBs were getting into the backfield with regularity, blowing any chance for the Cowboys to get a run game going.  And yet, the Lions headed into the half down by 3 points after Matthew Stafford threw two back-breaking interceptions, one of which was returned for a  TD.  The second half was more of the same.

For close to 59 minutes, the Lions just couldn’t catch a break.  They would drive down the field and score, bringing the deficit to three only to break down in coverage and allow a long TD.  Then again.  Finally, with barely over a minute left in the game, Matthew Stafford got the ball with two time outs left.  Magic ensued.  (more…)
