The Browns' drive stalls to start the 4th, as the Lions get a 3 and out, forcing a punt.
Northcutt on the return, gets it over the 20. Tack on 5 for a Browns player running out of bounds, then getting in on the play. Shit, 5 yards is 5 yards, right?
As the Lions start their first 4th quarter drive, Stafford has 345 and 4 TDs in the air, Megatron and Smith both over 100 receiving.
GOD DAMN IT!
It's back, but I miss the Lions' series. Must have been a 3 and out, as Cribbs is returning a punt for the Browns as I was pulling my hair out on frustration.
Browns start at their 25. 12:30 left in the game. A block in the back brings back what would have been a 1st down, make it 1st and 8 from the 27.
3rd and short coming up for Cleveland. The 30 fans in the stands want a stop! BLITZ! Whistle...Browns take a TO as they see the play clock running down to 0. As exciting as this game has been, the quality of play is fucking laughable. Piss poor execution at times from both teams. This is NFL football in name only.
Browns spread the field...then sneak Quinn to move the chains. Shit.
10:00 left in the game.
2nd and 5, Quinn dumps it off to Gaines, James goes to the big hit...and fails to wrap up, drops like a rock to the turf, and Gaines gets 3 more yards. Browns have a 3rd and short as James stumbles off the field.
Them's my Lions!
Browns in the Wildcat, handoff, 1st down...I think. Here comes the chain gang. I was right, 1st down Browns.
Uh, guys. A STOP WOULD BE NICE, YA THINK?
Shit, Quinn to Massiquiotaa has the Browns over the 50 at the Lions 45. 3rd and 1.
Browns in tight, QB sneak. FLAG on the play. Fuck me. Lions lined up in the neutral zone. That's Pop Warner shit...
Quinn deep drop..steps up in the pocket...Buchanon breaks up the deep ball at the 5!
2nd and long...SCREEN! SHIT!!! Cribbs has blockers, of course he breaks a tackle, and is brought down inside Detroit's 10 yard line.
This is not looking good, folks. It's just like the Lions to get me to buy in, then pull the rug out from under me...
Buchanon is hurt, again, as we go to a injury TO.
1st and goal at the 4. Lewis is pulled down at the 2.
Browns with 4 wides...Quinn in the gun...slant is thrown behind the WR....dropped! 3rd and goal.
Tackle eligible...Quinn in the gun...big pressure from the Lions....Quinn throws off his back foot...caught at the 1 by Gaines...TD Browns.
They'll go for 2, Lewis on the direct snap...cake. He walks in for the 2. Browns retake the lead, 37-31, 5:44 left in the game.
The Lions are going to do me in...seriously.
Whoa...Dawson boots the kickoff out of bounds, the Lions will start at the 40. Thank you very much! Execution fail on the Browns part.
Stafford hits a pair of short passes, leaving 3rd and 1 with 4:40 left. Stafford in the gun...rolls right...and puts his head down...Jeebus Christ, he's a foot short! Chain gang confirms it.
4:28 left, Lions will go for it. They spread the field...SNEAK! I'm not sure if Stafford got it...LET IT BE A LEFT FOOT MARK!
IT IS! Lions got the nose of the ball over the 50! 1st down.
Stafford rolls right....nice catch by Pettigrew, who rumbles for another 1st at the 39. Under 4 minutes left.
Churilus called for a false start. AAAAAAARRRRRRGH!
Stafford in the gun...looks DEEP for Megatron...SHIT, TRIPLE COVERAGE....and the safety makes a leaping pick in the end zone.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
Browns start running the ball, making the Lions burn a TO. They have one left, with under 3 minutes left.
FUCK! Stream is toast. THE NFL CAN DIE IN A FIRE.
2 minutes left, Lions out of time outs, Browns face a 3rd and 5...all according to the radio PBP. Browns throw...incomplete.
THE BROWNS STOPPED THE CLOCK, and will punt.
Lions start at their own 12, about 1:50 left.
Megatron gets the 1st down, but clock running, 1:25 left. Dump off to Smith! WHAT? He's down at the 29, clock still runing, Johnson at the 46, Lions have to spike it. 43 seconds left. Completion to the Browns 43, ball is clocked.
Stafford throws for Pettigrew at the 20...incomplete. 23 seconds left, still at the 43. Complete to Heller at the 32, clock running...spiked with 8 seconds left. Stafford takes the snap...runs all over the field...going to be 0:00 on the clock...throws a prayer for Megatron...FLAGFLAGFLAG!
Pass interference, but Stafford is hurt on the play! Miller says it's his left shoulder!
It'll be 1st down at the 1, an untimed play, Culpepper in! HUH? Browns take a time out.
With the TO, Stafford can come back in! Miller and Brandstatter say he's still hurt, but he's going to run the play regardless!
Stafford takes the snap...play action...rolls right...PETTIGREW IN THE END ZONE, IT'S A FUCKING TOUCHDOWN! TIE GAME!
Lions need the PAT...As Marty Moronwig would say, "Snap, hold, kick." Hanson drills it, LIONS WIN!
What a finish...on the God damn radio.
I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO ACTALLLY SEE THE WINNING PLAY! FUCK YOU, NFL! DIE IN A FIRE, GOODELL!
Lions win 38-37, and damn near guarantee the Browns will win the race for the 1st overall draft pick. Browns head coach Eric Mangini also guaranteed his getting the ziggy at the end of the season by calling for the pass play to stop the clock when the Lions had no time outs left. Let alone his calling a the time out before the last play, allowing Stafford to re-enter the game....who is the only rookie to throw 5 TDs in a game.
At least for one day, my Lions running diary ends on a somewhat happy note.
Unicorns and rainbows for everybody!I need a fucking drink...
