The Lions allowed two special teams touchdowns, a defensive touchdown and two touchdown passes of over 60 yards, but still managed to push the game into overtime after scoring 14 points with under 90 seconds remaining in regulation with backup quarterback Shaun Hill in the game. The Titans prevailed in the end, but the Lions comeback stands as one of the top stories of the season.
Sean Yuille of SB Nation's Detroit Lions blog, Pride of Detroit, writes that the main story line for the Detroit Lions should not be their offensive comeback, but instead the offensive, defensive and special teams inefficiency which cost them the game in the end.
...the real story for Detroit should be the Lions' poor play in all three phases of the game. The offense can't keep having to settle for field goals going forward, just as the defense can't keep letting teams get big pass plays or extend drives with bad penalties. And don't even get me started on the special teams coverage units.
