Detroit Lions Fall Short, Hail Mary Goes All for Not

By Brian Cote

The Detroit Lions came up just a tad short of an epic NFL comeback Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. It was a yard short to be exact.

The Lions fell 44-41 in overtime after charging back to tie the game on an improbable hail mary from QB Shaun Hill to WR Titus Young Sr. As a matter of a fact, the Lions showed a great of heart in scoring two touchdowns within the last 20 seconds of regulation only to get stuffed on a fourth and one play in O.T.

Despite a wild game in general the Lions showed a lot of heart and soul by never giving up against the Titans. Detroit could have just folded Vegas style, but the team kept working away at getting back in the game.

This is a different Lions team from years past as the old Lions would have not had the will or talent to attempt a comeback like this current incarnation did on Sunday.

QB Matthew Stafford hurt his leg at the end of regulation so this will be a story to follow heading into week four at Ford Field verse the Minnesota Vikings.
