Lions Maul Vikings in Overtime

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.

Whoops! From the headline I thought this was going to be an exciting news story about Viking tourists in Africa.

humblegunner got banned for that mild comment? Apparently the Mod on duty is a Lions fan.

If humblegunner is banned that means he cannot post and
then we’ll all be the poorer without his wisdom and input.

TO ALL NFL FANS REGARDLESS OF TEAM:

In case you do not already know, a European web site streams local TV broadcasts of ALL NFL games. (Link below)

I found out about it on the Dolphins blogs on the Miami Herald web page. The image quality is not the best but it is FREE.

This morning, I watched my Miami Dolphins from out here on the West Coast and then switched over for the last three minutes to see the Bills stick it to Tom Brady and Belichick.

Congratulations, Bills. :-)

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.

That's too far back.
Anything or anybody worth mention between then and now is just Billy Sims, and Barry Sanders. Unless you count tackling Gale Sayers, which was about when I first became a Lions fan.

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?

Thanks madison10.

The Lions aren't the "same old Lions" any longer. That was a good game, and kudos to the Vikings for A) not giving up (they've taken on that "second half collapse" mantle now, totally unfair) and B) for bringing the Lions back down to Earth.

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!

That's OK, in college football the North Dakota State University Bison beat the Minnesota Golden Gophers, too.
