The speed of the play, from the ball bouncing to landing in the receiver's feet, was quick enough that the play was called a catch on the field, setting up a 2nd-and-6. They finish the regular season at home as they host the Green Bay Packers (7-6) in Week 16. This was a game we all knew the Lions could lose. On Sunday, he bounced back with a touchdown-saving pass breakup, which proved to be a critical play in the victory. They nearly certainly will have to play the Packers for the NFC North title in Week 17.
There were plenty of missed opportunities, but in the end, the Detroit Lions fell short against the New York Giants on Sunday.
Some may get on Lions coach Jim Caldwell for not challenging the play, but it was actually the right decision. As noted by FOX Sports, Stafford suffered torn ligaments in the middle finger of his throwing hand during Detroit's 20-17 win over the Chicago Bears last week.
The Lions have a league-leading five interceptions this season that have come inside the final two minutes of regulation. As quarterback Eli Manning, the man who had all three of those turnovers, said earlier in the week, you're not going to win many football games when you turn the ball over and only score 10 points.
In manhandling the Lions, the Giants took turns making big plays.
Odell Beckham Jr. pulled off another great one-handed catch to lead to his TD and celebrated in his usual fashion. The Bucs are 2-2 in those games with one more remaining against the Saints next week. "Number two, the fact of the matter is, I saw the play happen and I saw him go down". The top two prospects from the Detroit Lions include running back Dwayne Washington (13.30 points) and quarterback Matthew Stafford (13.00 points). Looks like he juggled it and had it between his knees.
In both the loss to the Texans in Week 8 and the most recent loss to the Giants in Week 15, Caldwell opted not to throw his challenge flag once.
"They didn't give me anything upstairs, obviously, because we didn't see (a replay) until late". It would have been determined an incomplete pass, .
