ST LOUIS, Mo — Two steps forward, one big step back.
The Detroit Lions blew a 10-point third quarter lead and lost 34-24 to the St. Louis Rams on Monday. “It hurts,” quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. “We were obviously in a position to win this game ... It doesn't feel good right now."
Detroit scored touchdowns in the second and third quarters after back and forth field goals and went into halftime with a 10-9 lead. Detroit opened the second half with the ball and quickly added a 65-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill to Allen Hurns to go up 17-9. After that, almost nothing went right for the Lions after Hill's 79 yard Touch down run at the end of the 3rd quarter. Detroit's next two possessions ended in punts — A 15-point lead was suddenly pared to 3. In all, the Rams offensive attack outwitted the defense to score 25 unanswered points. Next week the Lions travel to Seattle. Let's hope they stay on track.
