The Detroit Lions rallied from being down by 24 points to the Dallas Cowboys to win 34 – 30 and remain undefeated. This was a complete team effort from the Detroit Lions who began their rally with the defense incepting Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo on consecutive drives in the third quarter (both interceptions were returned for touchdowns). After that Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson helped to complete the comeback and lead the Detroit Lions to the victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
After the game, the Detroit Lions began receiving some much needed respect around the nation as “Lions 4-0) became a trending topic on
Twitter (see below).

All in all, it was a bad week for the NFC East as the Philadelphia Eagles also blew a 2nd half lead as they fell to the San Francisco 49ers. Next week the Detroit Lions will look to remain unbeaten as they host the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
