Lions win 26 to 23
MINNEAPOLIS - The old Detroit Lions would have wilted after falling behind 20-0 at halftime. These are not the same old Lions. Matthew Stafford(notes) threw two touchdown passes in the second half to rally Detroit from the big halftime deficit, and Jason Hanson kicked a 32-yard field goal in overtime for a 26-23 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Detroit and Buffalo in the Super Bowl. You heard it here.
As a Browns fan, and partisan of downtrodden franchises, I applaud your prediction!
FWIW, I've heard a lot here.............Once I even heard that McCain was going to win the 2008 presidential election.........LOL!
Thanks, buddy. This is why I love FR.
By “old Lions” I assume you’re not referring to Buddy Parker’s Joe Schmidt, Bobby Lane, Doak Walker, Yale Lary, Less Bingaman, et al.
It's all about now! The lions no longer suck. There is a God in heaven, but tickets range from $200 to $1495 each.
Is this the future? Was it better price wise when they sucked?
Don’t hold back, how do you really feel? ;’)
I hate to get all optimistic, when I’ve been through so many letdowns, but this is looking good. The first half of that game I decided I’d hang around to see the Fox halftime report — and BTW, nice job, Fox, for that electronic noise in the feed, which mysteriously disappeared during every single effin’ advert, not so much as an acknowledgement or an apology, which means the network doesn’t give a d@mn about Lions fans — and then drive home, checking the game on the car radio from time to time.
Not one screen in the wholesale club was set to the game. Up yours, Sam’s Club.
Anyway, it’s lookin’ good!
Please freepmail me if you wish to be added or dropped from the mitten ping.
