Falcons survive scare from Lions 30-26

Falcons survive scare from Lions 30-26

Had Tate been ruled down live with no review, the Lions essentially would have been working from the same line of scrimmage with the same personnel. A 10-second runoff was required and since the Lions were out of timeouts, the game was over.

Let's begin by looking at the actual play. After reviewing the play, the refs ruled that Tate's knee was down and he was touched by Brian Poole before the ball reached the plane.

Now the issue becomes the clock. Had the call on the field been correct initially, the clock would have run out. It's completely unfair to penalize the Lions 10 seconds because the referees missed the call. The Lions' twitter account certainly seems to think so. Not exactly. While it may not be fully apples to oranges, the comparison of this play against the Vikings' one isn't exactly apples to apples either. A handful of defensive penalties put the Lions at the one-yard line with eight seconds remaining.

I've been saying all along, the Lions can't rely on winning 50-50 games this year.

Throw in on top of that, the return to form of tight end Austin Hooper, and what you have altogether is an offense that looks well capable of making another run at the title.

Why should the rulebook tell the Lions they couldn't accomplish something they've already done in the past?

At the end of the day, this is the play which will be dissected and remembered. Atlanta is too good and too fast for Detroit to stop and the Lions have some solid weapons as well.

Trailing the Falcons 30-26 with 12 seconds remaining in regulation, the Lions thought they had pulled off yet another exhilarating fourth-quarter comeback when quarterback Matthew Stafford completed a one-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate. Like Ansah, Slay can make big plays, as evidenced by two interceptions against Julio Jones and the Falcons. The Falcons are the first team to start the season with three victories after losing the Super Bowl since the 2006 Seattle Seahawks. Some even doubt whether they are a legitimate NFC contender. So with that in mind, it's clear that Detroit needs as many early-season wins in order to keep this from happening once more.

Atlanta came right out of the locker room and Bryant added a 40-yard field goal for a 23-13 advantage with 11:37 still to go in the third. What about Tate being interfered with before the ball arrive?

Notes: Quinn said RT Ryan Schraeder, still in the National Football League concussion protocol, hopes to get cleared so that he can practice this week and play against the Bills. Thus far the Lions QB has only been sacked four times. "They're taking advantage of plays when they need to".

You'll get to see this one at 1 p.m. EST on your local FOX affiliate. He racked up 294 yards, 8.4 yards per attempt and two touchdowns to offset those three picks.

The NFC North-leading Lions (2-0) host the Atlanta Falcons (2-0) on Sunday in a matchup of two of the NFC's four undefeated teams. Detroit has looked strong on defense, allowing just 16.5 points and 307 yards per game. That's what the best teams do.

After the NFL, NFLPA and most teams condemned Trump's comments, he doubled-down Sunday morning on Twitter by saying fans should boycott the NFL until it shut down the anthem protests. These teams are going to give the Falcons their best shot this season.
