Lions somehow manage to lose after officials call the apparent winning TD

Falcons vs. Lions Keys to the game for offense defense

Former Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah kneeled during the national anthem on Sunday before the Detroit Lions' game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Caldwell would have been entering the final year of his contract had he not signed an extension with the club during the offseason and has amassed a 29-21 overall record since being named head coach in 2014.

Those eight seconds were wiped clear by a 10-second runoff, and the Lions were forced to swallow a bitter defeat, victimized by the rulebook. If the run game is going, it forces defenses to either sell out for the run or sit back and defend the pass.

"Immediately after the play I didn't think anything of it".

"I think this week was a different one". And then after watching a few times I thought it could go either way. "It's a tough way to lose". If they can manage to keep the momentum they gained in the run game last week, this game could turn out to be a real barn burner.

But, the TD was overturned after a video both review, where it was deemed Tate's knee was down before the goal line, and the remaining time ran off the clock, much to the audible frustration of the home Detroit crowd.

"Yeah, you can kind of look at it that way if you want, but they ruled it correctly", said Caldwell. They made or failed to make plays and decisions that put themselves at the mercy of a questionable rule, and for that, they bear some of the blame. "Our guys fought hard".

But as FOX rules analyst Dean Blandino pointed out, if there was no 10-second runoff, the Lions would have had an effective free timeout and another down just a couple of inches from paydirt. His three picks came after not throwing an interception since the Falcons played the Chiefs last season. "Why do we get punished 10 seconds?" It's a 60-minute game.

"Julio will be limited, but he'll likely get a good bit of work as he goes through the week", Quinn said.

Davis' absence didn't make all the difference, but it certainly had something to do with the Falcons ability to scorch the Lions' defense.

They say a win is a win. We will reach equality, we will make positive change.

If you didn't have a chance to watch the Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon, then I truly feel bad for you. "What you emphasize sometimes is what comes through and we emphasize situational football". I mean, did you see Bengals-Packers? Baltimore (2-1) managed just 186 yards, including 15 in the first half. Ryan did throw some passes early in the game that weren't accurate, but he got more comfortable as the matchup progressed.

Had Tate been ruled down live with no review, the Lions essentially would have been working from the same line of scrimmage with the same personnel.
