Dallas Cowboys Lose Another Heartbreaker
The Dallas Cowboys nearly survived each haymaker the Detroit Lions‘ Calvin Johnson threw at them Sunday. The Lions’ standout receiver had a career day against a Cowboys’ secondary that tried everything in their power to stop him. On a day that saw Johnson put up video game type numbers, the Cowboys lost it late with a 31-30 thriller in Detroit.
Despite the Cowboys managing to turn the Lions over four times on the day, the Cowboys defensive woes proved to be insurmountable. Johnson and his monstrous 14 catches and 329 yards with a touchdown helped his team overcome a flurry of mistakes. Starting linebacker Sean Lee had two interceptions on the day. Lee returned one for a Cowboys’ linebacker record 74 yards on the day, but it still wasn’t enough. After only putting 17 combined points on the board in the first half, the teams exploded in the second half for a combined total of 43 points.
Even though the Lions had their way with the Cowboys’ defense at times today, the Lions were their own worst enemy, finding different ways throughout the game to turnover the ball. Johnson had a pass ricochet off of his hands and pads into the opportunistic hands of Lee. Johnson also had a huge fumble that took potential points off of the board for the Lions. To further add to the Lions woes, Reggie Bush fumbled the ball after he tried to bounce a run to the outside. The Lions’ day nearly ended when the Cowboys’ Jeff Heath nearly made a diving interception after the Lions’ quarterback Matthew Stafford threw up a desperation pass late in the fourth quarter. With today’s loss, the Cowboys dropped to 4-4 on the season.
The Cowboys nearly had a victory until Stafford found Johnson on a deep pass down the right side line,where he nearly managed to find his way into the end zone. The Lions eventually scored on a Stafford quarterback sneak, sealing the win for the Lions on the day.
