Lions tie NFL record by blowing third straight double-digit lead
12:00 PM, December 10, 2012
The Detroit Lions have tied an NFL record, and they’re not proud of it.
Detroit blew a 10-point lead in a third straight game in a 27-20 loss Sunday night at Green Bay, matching a dubious league mark.
The 2011 Minnesota Vikings, 1999 New Orleans Saints, 1991 Cleveland Browns, 1980 St. Louis Cardinals, 1952 Washington Redskins and the 1947 Green Bay Packers are the other teams in NFL history that have lost three in a row after leading by at least 10 points in each game, according to Stats LLC.
The Lions have dropped five straight games, guaranteeing a losing record this year. They might have a chance to snap the skid Sunday, at the equally lowly Arizona Cardinals.http://www.freep.com/article/20121210/S ... digit-lead
