For the second week in a row the Lions pull a miracle comeback and this time a perfectly timed mistake on a field goal gave them a second shot.

Matt Prater missed a possible game winner with 4 seconds left but the play had been whistled dead by the refs. So Prater backed up five and with no time on the clock sailed through giving the Lions a 22 point comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons.

It’s beginning to feel like this team belongs in the hunt and I am actually expecting the Lions to win when they take the field no matter who they play. I can tell you that is certainly something new.

At 6-2 at the halfway mark it’s time to start thinking about whether the Lions will have home field advantage or will start the playoffs on the road.
