    This game went back and forth.The Lions jumped out to a 7-0 lead after 1 quarter.The Rams kept to their gameplan and traded blows making this game 14-14 going into the 4th.The Rams seemed to get the momentum going and scored the go ahead TD with about 4 minutes left in the game.The Lions next go they were hald to 4th and 19 from there 12 yard line,with 2 timeouts left they had to punt.The Rams came out to run the clock out but were stopped on 3rd and short and were forced to give the Lions one last try.Detroit managed to get the ball to their own 43 yard line and spike the ball with 3 seconds left.The dbs for St.Louis played back so the Lions went hail mary to the right side.In practise Stafford could throw the ball around 65 yards so a short drop back,couple steps forward he threw it up to Big Calvin Johnson who didn't catch the ball 2 yards in the end zone....but veteran Nate Burlson snuck behind everyone to nap the game tying score with no time on the clock.
    Onto OT,the Rams won the flip and took the ball but quickly QB Bradford scrambled and coughed up a fumble.Three plays later 42 year old Jason Hanson came in the kick the game winning FG from 47.
    This is a game where the Lions are almost embaressed to take as the Rams deserved this win but hard to beat what the Madden gods want.

    Hell of a game Eddie!Classy to the end.
