Joey 4-4. KJ catches his first recieving TD and the Lions made it look easy. Keep it up!!!! 11:02 in the first quarter Lions 7-0.
Testaverde and Witten with just enough running mixed in. 1:07 in the first quarter 7-7. Jauron is going to have to adjust that soft zone or Witten will catch 20 passes today.
Three and out for both the Lions and the Cowboys. A 30 yard return nullified by a running into the kicker penalty. Instead of mid-field the Lions start inside their twenty. A short drive stalls and a good punt puts Dallas back at their 15.
Dallas moving the ball with another pass to Witten. On 3rd and 3 Testaverde hits Dre Bly in stride and the Lions take the lead 14-7 with 8:18 left til the half.
Cowboys on the Lions 34 with a 4th and about 3 decide to go for it. The Lions let Testaverde run a QB sneak for the 1st down. 3:25 til the half.
TD Cowboys: Testaverde to Keyshawn: Bracie Walker misses the tackle at about the 10. 14-14 with 1:54 LEFT IN THE HALF.
Woody gets hurt with 1:32 left. I'm holding my breath.
Incomplete pass on 3rd and 8. Lions give up a huge special teams play on the punt and the Cowboys have the ball on the Lions 28. We need a turn-over or a defensive stop.
Interception by Brock Marion with the Cowboys on the 9. 14-14 at the half.
Cowboys return the 2nd half kick-off past mid-field.
A trick play results in pass interference on Cash; down to the four.
Testaverde rolls into the end zone. Cowboys 21-14.
Lions drive stalls and the Lions special teams make a critical error by not downing the ball at the one. We need another huge play by the defense to shift the momentum.
Too many bad penalties are allowing the Cowboys to keep the drive alive. The defense seems to be wearing down and Eddie George is starting to hurt them on the ground.
ANOTHER HUGE INTERCEPTION by Dre Bly in the End Zone.
Returns to the Lions 28.
Drive ends with a false start on a 53 yard field goal attempt. Lions punt into the end zone instead. Thats 10 penalties already. Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy.
End of the third quarter.. Cowboys have the ball on their 37 with a 3rd and 6.
SACK!!!! Good start to the 4th. Cowboys punt for only the second time. Eddie Drummond gives the Lions good field position with a 25 yard return to the 43.
Two KJ runs make it 3rd and less than 1. Need a first down. Shawn Bryson just gets it with a dive over the pile.
Joey to Hakim for 8. Incomplete to Alexander down field, looked like interference, but I'm just slightly predjudiced. Another huge 3rd down. Pass knocked down at the line. Going for it on 4th down. SACK!!!!!!
Cowboys moving down the field with a pass to Keyshawn. Need another turn over because the Cowboys are already in FG range. 7:30 left.
Another time-out by the Lions on defense. They look confused and frustrated. Incomplete pass on 3rd down. Field goal from 45 is good.
The Lions are 10 down with 7:00 minutes left. Need a huge effort now.
Harrington to Alexander for 12. Harrington to Hakim for 15. Harrington to Kircus TD
TD!!!!!!!! Kircus takes the ball away from Frasier. 5:29 left but the Lions only have 1 time-out left.
Defense gives up a huge play on 3rd down. 2:00 left and we need another huge play on defense. TD to Keyshawn, game set and match!!!
Too many rushing yards by George (99) allowed Vinny to make big plays when he needed them.
Lions missed too many tackles (I counted 19) and had too many critical penalties.
Joey played well, but KJ is again almost a no show (11-36).
Missed a big opportunity, since the Vikings got it handed to them by the Giants.
