Lions stumble through second half in loss

Posted · Add Comment

The Detroit Lions' duo of Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson were on pace to set some records at the half of Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Stafford had 327 passing yards and two touchdowns at the half. Both touchdowns went to Calvin Johnson, who had 179 receiving yards in the first two quarters.

From there, it was a nightmare for a Lions team that initially looked like would pull away from the Steelers.

Johnson was held without a catch in the second half and Stafford finished with 362 yards and threw an interception.

Meanwhile, Ben Roethlisberger threw for 367 yards and four touchdowns in the win, which helps get the Steelers back in the AFC Wild Card race.

The Steelers are now tied for second place in the AFC North with Baltimore and Cleveland at 4-6.
