Lions grab halftime lead with two TD drives

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 28, 2013 – 1:04 pm


DETROIT — Two touchdown drives in the second quarter for the Lions erased a seven-point deficit and gave Detroit a 17-10 halftime lead.

The Lions began the quarter with a 27-yard FG by K David Akers, who came on after a third-and-goal pass for TE Brandon Pettigrew was incomplete.

That gave the Lions 159 yards of offense after their first two possessions, but they led only 3-0.

The Packers answered with a FG to tie the game. After the kickoff went out of bounds and WR James Jones made a tough 16-yard grab over LB Stephen Tulloch, the Packers were across midfield. QB Matt Flynn scrambled for 4 yards on third-and-6, setting up a 54-yard FG by Mason Crosby.

Green Bay took the lead just moments later. On the first snap of Detroit’s ensuing possession, LB Nick Perry hit QB Matthew Stafford’s arm as he wound up to throw. The ball came loose, and S Morgan Burnett picked it up at the 1-yard line and scored for the Packers to make it 10-3.

The Packers defense got its third turnover of the half a handful of snaps later, as CB Tramon Williams picked off a pass intended for WR Kris Durham. A personal foul on Durham for tackling Williams by using the opening of the helmet put the Packers on their own 49-yard line to start the possession.

The Packers did nothing with the field position, however, going three-and-out, and the Lions responded with an 85-yard TD drive to tie the game at 10.

A 32-yard pass down the left sideline to RB Reggie Bush on third down got the Lions moving, and a 26-yard pass to TE Dorin Dickerson on third-and-1 got the Lions into the red zone. WR Jeremy Ross caught a 5-yard TD pass for the score.

After another Packers three-and-out, Ross returned a punt 35 yards across midfield, and the Lions needed just three plays to score again. Bush ran it in from the 1 just one snap after his own 23-yard run put it there.

A third consecutive Green Bay three-and-out gave the Lions one more drive in the half, and they took advantage. Passes of 16 yards to WR Calvin Johnson and 19 yards to Durham set up a 31-yard FG try by Akers on the final snap, but he missed wide right.

    Half time adjustments?!? Gut check time?!? No…only a Lions meltdown like their last couple of games for a chance at a Pack win. 30 more minutes to avoid rest of the season spoiler role and get ready for next season.

    Is it players or plays on defense. We know what makes the offense click and it is not chubby and green. Worst half of football I have ever watched in 48 years of watching or playing.

    The Packers defense can’t stop a “runny nose” and the offense is offensive to say the least.

    I’ve seen worse “D”. At least they’re down by only 7. The
    “O”. on the other hand… Why is Flynn throwing into coverage? Does he miss throwing interceptions? Even special teams are stinking, except for FG. We are witnessing the beginning of the end of “The McCarthy Era”. RIP, Mike.

    I hear you Joe…getting a little stale…like the Bengtson, Devine, the Italian guy(?), Starr, Gregg, etc. eras. Last 20 years a very good run…hopefully this is like the 4-12, 8-8, 12-4 years after Favre. Still holding out hope though until they’re out.

    Capers and McCarthey have had to many drafts and years to develope. Without Rodgers or Favre the offense is just as bad.

    Good coaches coach through adversity. Bad coaches say “we’ll look at the tape, and fix this” McCarthy should run for Senate. ‘Cause he sure ain’t got what it takes to do anything else. I wouldn’t want this guy in high school ball.
