After going into halftime down 10-7, the Lions came out and forced a three and out and quickly scored a touchdown to take back the lead. Matthew Stafford worked out of the shotgun throughout the drive and completed a big 17-yard pass to Calvin Johnson on third down. The Lions picked up another third-down conversion later in the drive on a 12-yard pass to Tony Scheffler. On the very next play, the Lions scored on an 18-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Pettigrew, who was wide open.
The Lions now are on top by a score of 14-10. Johnson scored on a 73-yard touchdown in the second quarter for their first score, and Pettigrew's TD gave the Lions their second touchdown of the game.
