Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons at Ford Field

Adjust Comment Print

In last week's game, the Falcons took down Aaron Rodgers and the Packers 34-23 at home.

Atlanta has 14 first downs on just three possessions, compared to four for the Lions on their two drives. By rule, 10 seconds had to run off the clock, and that ended the game because the Lions didn't have any timeouts.

The Falcons defense was forced to take on the Stafford led Lion's offense after the Falcons turned the football over three times on three interceptions.

Early Sunday morning, Lions wide receiver Golden Tate tweeted out a message for those Lions fans who will be in attendance at Ford Field. But after the play, Jones looked like he was experiencing pain in his lower back.

Not a smart play by the veteran Lang.

Morata could have scored a double brace when he was played through on goal by Eden Hazard but his shot was inches wide. Morata scored in the first minute of the encounter for Chelsea with a brilliant finish.

Atlanta drove inside the Lions' 10 on its next possession, but defensive end Anthony Zettel's third-down sack of Ryan forced the Falcons to settle for Bryant's 36-yard field goal. On second down, Ryan hit Mohammad Sanu at the goal line, and though the play was initially ruled short of the end zone, an Atlanta challenge put six points on the board.

Owner Martha Firestone Ford joined her players on the field for the protest, linking arms with her daughters.

In Sunday's first NFL game, some players from the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars knelt during the national anthem and others linked arms before their game in London.

Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem last season, citing a protest of racial injustices in the criminal justice system, including police shootings of unarmed black men.

Beard said that Cornelius Washington, A'Shawn Robinson, AJ Spence, Jeremiah Ledbetter, Tahir Whitehead and Jaylen Reeves-Maybin.
