Lions/Rams completed with the Lions winning 38-20 over the streaking rams. Stafford with a perfect QB rating stepping up his game this year.
First quarter started with a defensive stand from uber, stopping the Lions attack and forcing them to punt. Pinned down at the 19, and the first play uber had from scrimmage and he caught my defense not being warmed up for an 81 yard bomb to Kenny Britt. This completely demoralized my teams D.
Knowing they had to step up and make up for the defenses mistakes, the Lions O proceeded to mark down the field, scoring on a second and goal at the one. The defense then turned into bend, but don't break at that point, allowing a 23 yard field goal 2 and a half minutes later. Stafford stepped up perfectly at that point, connecting for two quick stores just a minute apart to put the lions up 21-10 going into half.
From the point the Lions CBs stepped up, shutting down the rams ridiculously good passing game with three picks in the second have. Stafford had another long TD pass, and Wiles had a 97 yard TD run to start off the fourth quarter.
The rams marched down the field for one more shot at it with two minutes left. Scoring on a quick pass to Kenny Britt the Rams got the onside kick down 38-20. The lions D stepped up and had one last interception in the end zone to close out the game, allowing them to run the clock out with the Rams only having one time out left.
Great game uberness, your defense was very very good and your offense was incredibly hard to stop. I thought you played a great game.
There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.
