Sports: Lions Lose; Pistons win!
The Lions lost 24-20 to the Cowboys in Dallas. Matthew Stafford passed for 323 yards, a touchdown and an interception for the Lions, who haven't won a playoff game since 1992, and haven’t won one on the road since the 1957 Championship season.
Golden Tate had six catches for 89 yards and a score in the loss. The Lions built a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, but managed just two field goals the rest of the way. Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes to Terrance Williams, one with 2:32 to go in the game. The game was not without several controversial calls by the officials.
