ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The only thing more improbable than the Detroit Lions being 4-0 might be the way they have pulled out their last two wins.
This historically bumbling franchise submitted further proof Sunday of how far they have come by wiping out a 24-point, third-quarter deficit and pulling out a 34-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
Just a week after turning a 20-point halftime deficit into an overtime win, the Lions topped themselves with a performance everyone in the locker room could savor.
The defense got it started with a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns, then another interception with 4:13 left.
