Sports: Lions’ Comeback Win!
The Detroit Lions rallied by the New Orleans Saints 24-23 from Ford Field Sunday afternoon. Matthew Stafford threw a pair of touchdown passes with under four minutes to go and ended with 299 yards and two interceptions. The Lions were down 17-3 in the 3rd when Joique Bell’s TD run got them within a touchdown. Golden Tate had 10 catches for 154 yards and a touchdown. Corey Fuller caught the game-winning TD for Detroit and the Lions defense turned it up a notch late in the game, as a Glover Quin interception gave them the chance to win. The Lions are tied with the Packers atop the NFC North at 5-and-2. They face the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday in London.
