  • Jim Caldwell Signed Multi-Year Contract Extension With Lions During Offseason

The Lions (2-1) travel to play Minnesota (2-1) on Sunday in a matchup of teams tied with Green Bay atop the NFC North. A pass from Matthew Stafford to Golden Tate, ruled a touchdown from two yards out, put the Lions ahead 32-30 with an extra point from Matt Prater pending and just eight seconds left in the game.

Let's begin by looking at the actual play. However, a replay review showed that, in fact, Tate's knee was down before he broke the plane of the endzone. I get that the clock should have stayed running and would have likely run out if the correct call had been made.

Golden might not have had full control of the ball until he was safely over the line. The Lions' twitter account certainly seems to think so. He said the Lions had not specifically used a stopwatch to time the length of the final play, but that they have an idea of how long it should take because of clock management things the Lions work on. Not exactly. While it may not be fully apples to oranges, the comparison of this play against the Vikings' one isn't exactly apples to apples either.

Starting from their own 11-yard line, the Lions marched down the field and made it to the red zone with just 34 seconds remaining in the game.

Alternatively, when a stoppage occurs inside of 20 seconds and outside of, say, the five-second mark, it might be fairer to charge a timeout-less offense half of the time remaining on the clock. The enforcement of the 10-second runoff was the right call to make.

At the end of the day, a win is a win, regardless if it is a close win, blowout win or an ugly win.

For a few minutes in Detroit on Sunday, it appeared the Lions were atop the NFC after knocking off the conference's defending champions. They've scored at least 30 points in two of their wins and are 2-0 on the road. Matt Ryan would bounce back after his second interception, regaining the lead for Atlanta with a quick screen pass to Taylor Gabriel, who weaved in and out of the defense to take it 40 yards to the house. For the rest of us, it's a nice surprise to see that the Atlanta Falcons (2-0) might not be the victim of a Super Bowl jinx and even more of a surprise that the Detroit Lions (2-0) might actually be good.

A defensive holding penalty against cornerback Desmond Trufant wiped out an interception. You can get live scores along with previews and updates from all the games all weekend on ourNFL Scoreboard. So with that in mind, it's clear that Detroit needs as many early-season wins in order to keep this from happening once more.

Both Caldwell and Falcons safety Keanu Neal said that would have been plenty of time to get a final fourth-and-goal play off from inside the 1-yard line had the 10-second runoff not been in place.
