The Detroit Lions are in serious trouble in the NFC Wild Card game. They're trailing the New Orleans Saints 31-21 with about nine minutes left in the fourth quarter and Matthew Stafford just ended the Lions last drive by throwing an interception.
Stafford was under pressure and, as he's done a few times in the game, he fired a deep ball to Calvin Johnson. Unfortunately, that deep ball was intercepted by the Saints who sit in firm control of the game with a double digit lead less than 10 minutes remaining.
If Johnson had caught it he would add to what is already a memorable day -- nine catches for 173 yards and a touchdown. Of course, we'll only remember it if the Lions can come back and win.
