When Kevin Ogletree pulled in a one-handed touchdown catch to complete the scoring with less than five minutes to play, the Lions held a 563-56 edge in total yards. 563-56! Reminder: This was a real game between two actual NFL franchises competing for victory.
The final breakdown was 561-126, a difference of 435 yards that represented the greatest yardage discrepancy in eight years, just beating out the 432-yard advantage the New Orleans Saints held over the Dallas Cowboys in their Week 10 laugher.
They had a 300-yard passer, a 100-yard receiver, a 100-yard rusher (and nearly a second). They sacked Matt Flynn seven times and forced three turnovers. But the Lions also turned the ball over four times themselves, missed a chip-shot field goal and sent two kickoffs out of bounds.Around The League Podcast" is now available on iTunes!
