Lions get bit by rule bug in loss to Falcons

Falcons vs. Lions Keys to the game for offense defense

"If it's for Wednesday, that I don't know yet, he's still in the protocol as we're going through it". I wouldn't be surprised if someone put a bug in Terry Pegula's ear about that this week as the Bills head to Atlanta's brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which carried an estimated price tag of $1.6 billion ... or $200 million more than Pegula paid for the entire Bills franchise.

The Lions won the first nine games of the match up from September, 1966 to September, 1976. Ryan completed 24 of 35 passes for 294 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions - including one returned for a touchdown. There's no reason to believe that the Lions' defense will be able to contain Matt Ryan, so it's up to Matt Stafford to lead his team to a victory in this potential shootout. The score didn't stay tied long as the Falcons answered on their very next possession short pass to Taylor Gabriel that he took to the house putting the Falcons up by seven. Tough one to lose, great effort from our team, awesome effort from our defense. Too many field goals for us, not enough touchdowns and ultimately, not a touchdown at the end.

As valuable as it is to have a kicker who can routinely hit 55-yard field goals, Matt Prater should never have had to do so much heavy lifting. There's really no doubt that had Golden Tate been ruled down at the 1-yard line, Detroit would have gotten another snap off. The replay was pretty clear. But during that late-season stretch, the Lions lost a gut-wrenching home game on an Aaron Rodgers' Hail Mary, aided by a facemask call giving the Packers a final play after time had expired. Stafford threw an interception on 2nd-and-30 in Falcons' territory which was negated by a foolish holding penalty on the other side of the field by cornerback Desmond Trufant. As Tate caught the pass at the one-yard line, he slid to the ground.

Has she faced more serious things in her life that this is no big deal? If you have a timeout left, you can prevent that run-off at the end of the game and give up that timeout. That's the NFL. It happens. When you run into guys in the offseason, you get the opportunity to pick their brains about a lot of different stuff.

Atlanta led 20-13 at halftime.

Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said the Falcons run on the perimeter "as well as anybody" in the National Football League, and a key Sunday will be Washington and the rest of the Lions' defensive ends winning on the edge. The Colts may not have to rush Luck with the way backup Jacoby Brissett played in their 31-28 win over the Cleveland Browns. Rookie linebacker Jarrad Davis (concussion), starting center Travis Swanson (ankle) and starting Tavon Wilson (shoulder) were all held out of Thursday's practice.
