Calvin Johnson leads Lions to victory in an NFL classic

Dallas Cowboys v Detroit Lions Getty Images

These are the games that make us love football.

Unless you’re a Cowboys fan. Then these are the games that break your heart.

Calvin Johnson showed once again that he’s the best receiver in the NFL, catching 14 passes for 329 yards, and in an amazing back-and-forth game, the Lions won 31-30.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford scored the game-winning touchdown on a stunning play with 12 seconds left. After hitting Johnson on a deep ball down to the 1-yard line, Stafford screamed at his teammates to get into position to let him spike the ball and stop the clock. But once the ball was snapped, instead of spiking it Stafford simply lunged forward toward the goal line and picked up a one-yard rushing touchdown.

Turnovers were a huge problem for Detroit. Johnson lost a fumble, and so did Reggie Bush (who really needs to learn to hold onto the ball properly). Stafford threw two interceptions. But a tremendous fourth quarter by the Lions’ offense turned things around.

For the Cowboys, the heartbreaking loss featured two touchdown catches by receiver Dez Bryant (who boasted last week, incorrectly, that he can do whatever Johnson can do), and also featured a sideline meltdown by Bryant, who yelled at teammates and coaches alike. The Cowboys are still in first place in the NFC East, but they have some regrouping to do.

The Lions, on the other hand, head into their bye week feeling great. At 5-3 they’re playoff contenders, and with Megatron, they have the best playmaker in football.

    Jerry Jones: I’m more worried about defending Reggie Bush than Calvin Johnson.

    Megatron: 14 rec, 329 yards, 1 TD

    Haha! Thanks for the many, many laughs, Jerry.

    Oh my goodness!. WHAT A GAME!!, That was an amazing last drive. Go Lions!!

  3. pnut87 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:34 PM

    Stafford deserves a medal for that jump. He didn’t tell anybody he was going to do it.

  4. bender4700 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:34 PM

    Dez Bryant was trying to rally the troops after that TD, didn’t you see it? See I saw the play that made him so mad, the Stafford TD, and clearly, Dez as trying to get everyone to realize there is next week, and they were all going to Dave and Busters later so they’d still have a good day!

    Dez is a moron, and so is any MORON who defends him. His own teams hates him. Owens 2.0.

  5. brownnorange00 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:34 PM

    You stay classy Dez Bryant

  6. jimnaizeeum says: Oct 27, 2013 4:34 PM

    Dez 72, Johnson 329…

  7. tigersfandan says: Oct 27, 2013 4:34 PM

    Unbelievable! That might have been a season-saver!

  8. 2difshoe says: Oct 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    I’m telling you, Dallas would figure out a way to go limp on Viagra !

  9. essentialsausage says: Oct 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    I think Stafford should be given most of the credit for this win rather than Megatron. Stafford bailed the Lions out at the end.

  10. conner87 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    To add on to what i just said

    I think Calvin Johnson just proved he is the best WR in the NFL. No doubt.

  11. dallassux says: Oct 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    Hahahahaha!

  12. mintberrycrunch1 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    Megatron is officially in Jerry Rice territory.

  13. getatmeplease says: Oct 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    Yeah the kid throwing to him was pretty darn good, too.

  14. axespray says: Oct 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    Way better than that Denver/Dallas game imo.

    There was actual defense – I can’t stand games that have zero defense whatsoever.

  15. f1restarter says: Oct 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    Not a Lions fan, but I love what this must be doing to Jerry Jones.

  16. fatsolio says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    Quick, I need the media to blame Romo for that collapse.

    I also need the media to not make a big deal of that comeback when they went orgasmic over Brady/the Pats comeback against the Saints. I watched both game winning drives and Stafford was far more impressive than Brady was. Stafford had a good game especially when his first pick was a drop by Calvin.

    Can’t wait to see this latest example of the media’s bias.

  17. sickliq says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    Thank you Jesus.

  18. thestrategyexpert says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    Gutsy play by Stafford at the end. The DL was asleep because they assumed he would spike it. If they are awake and stop him on that play it could have really put us in a bind if he wouldn’t have stayed upright to then toss the ball away and hopefully get another play. But his gambling trick worked and paid off, so that was pretty cool!

    As far as the DL is concerned, like they had something better to do with their lives and time for those few seconds than to stand around and stare at the sky. What a horrible coaching job all day by Garrett. The Lions played a horrible game loaded with TOs and still won the game. This team should be ashamed of themselves for how poor of a job they did at executing basic things all day long.

    Thanks for freebie, we really needed this one.

  19. jshawaii22 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    If I was Dallas, I’d give $100.00 bucks to Dez and tell him to make his own way back to Dallas.

    No way he’s going with the TEAM on the bus and the plane.

    Dez a #1? What a jerk and Calvin is in his own world. Great game and win.

    The 12th man is looking at you Detroit. Maybe in round #2.

    Go Hawks!

  20. humptyfratz says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    Matthew Stafford on that last play:

    “Spike spike spike spike spike! Guess what day it is?”

    “JUMP DAAAY!”

  21. azarkhan says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    Somebody make sure Dez has a six-pack of Midol.

  22. jbl429 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    Unreal. I’ve never seen a performance from a WR like that in my life. Double-teaming him isn’t enough.

  23. jakec4 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    I trashed Stafford after last week’s game, but that was ice water in the veins style at the end of that one. I loved how the Cowboys just assumed the spike was coming, and Stafford just made it happen himself.

  24. chuckie201 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    and yet jerry jones said reggie bush was the bigger threat

  25. chargersdiehard says: Oct 27, 2013 4:36 PM

    Did you see Shwartzy throw his head set down with authority? We wonder where Suh gets his temper and class!

  26. salscobrakai says: Oct 27, 2013 4:37 PM

    Karma Dez, Karma.

    The great ones let their play do the talking. Love, Megatron

  27. gjdodger2 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:37 PM

    Two sideline meltdowns for Bryant, and he got into the faces of Witten and a coach to boot. Boo freakin’ hop.

  28. shadowcell says: Oct 27, 2013 4:37 PM

    What on earth was that last play the Cowboys ran? Why would you call all that nonsense flipping the ball backwards when you’ve got twelve seconds, two timeouts left, and all you need is to get into field goal range with one second left?

  29. keepongronking says: Oct 27, 2013 4:37 PM

    Tampa 2 is horrible.

  30. motorcity20 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:37 PM

    Dez who?

  31. onebucplace says: Oct 27, 2013 4:38 PM

    Watching Dallas attempting to play the Tampa 2 is painful. For starters the Tampa 2 only works if you have a good pass rush. Second the players constantly seem to be out of position. I know they’re not playing it all of the time or even most of the time, but still. Kiffin’s defense is all about being in the right place at the right time and the Cwords just aren’t doing it.

  32. gslumbers says: Oct 27, 2013 4:38 PM

    My 8 yr. old conducts himself with more composure than Dez Bryant. What a complete embarrassment for the Cowboys organization. Nice game by Megatron though.

  33. cornellsteelers says: Oct 27, 2013 4:38 PM

    Top five game I’ve ever seen.

  34. gochargersgo says: Oct 27, 2013 4:38 PM

    This is what happens when you gameplan for Reggie Bush as the #1 threat and not Calvin Johnson.

  35. mataug says: Oct 27, 2013 4:38 PM

    My St Louis Cardinals supporting roommate said that no NFL game could match yesterday’s finish. Wish he was around when I watching this on redzone :)

  36. oaktown49er says: Oct 27, 2013 4:38 PM

    Not a fan of either team but that was AWESOME. Stafford did a great job on that final play.

  37. rbell2123 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:39 PM

    I do believe Stafford is an Elite QB!

  38. branbeezy says: Oct 27, 2013 4:39 PM

    That was one of the most gorgeous drives I’ve ever seen, Matthew Stafford has a bright future ahead of him.

  39. determineflksmakeit says: Oct 27, 2013 4:39 PM

    Dez…The only thing you need to learn how to do that Calvin does…Is make it about winning and being a team player

  40. rhabdodontidae says: Oct 27, 2013 4:39 PM

    Take a seat, Dez.

    You’re not even close.

  41. laurinaitis4mvp55 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:40 PM

    And THAT is what happens when you insult Megatron, JJ.

  42. deadeye says: Oct 27, 2013 4:40 PM

    The Lions need to display Dez Bryant’s non-sensical claims above Calvin’s locker forever. 300+ yards, Megatron was unstoppable.

  43. ddaveyy says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    While I’m pissed about the loss- a simple kneel down would have made things alot easier for the Cowboys, I’m more pissed at how clueless the announcers were by saying the Cowboys had it when there was 1:07 left in the clock.

    Oh yeah, with these spike plays, I’m telling my D guys to pound them in the future as you never know when someone is going to pull something “sneaky”. Great play by Stafford though.

    Dave

  44. shadowcell says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    More positively, that lunge over the goal line by Stafford was beautiful. Faked out everyone.

  45. gdive says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    Great finish but I don’t think you could find 4 good DB’s between both rosters.

  46. jkulha86 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    I was really hoping Witten would knock out Bryant during their argument. Dez Bryant could learn a few things from Calvin Johnson

  47. cwk22 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    Bryant is good but not Calvin Johnson good! And I hate the cowboys, so glad they lost!

  48. rcampore says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    As a Giants fan, all I can say is HOW ABOUT THEM COWBOYS!!??? LOL.

    Sorry but I don’t care if we are 2-6, that loss put the biggest smile on my face.

    I really wish they would have panned to Skeletor’s ( I mean Jerry Jones) face!

  49. chawk12thman says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    Great Game by Stafford and Calvin Johnson…….Wonder what Dez’s future is….He was out of control for apparently very little reason.

  50. kowboydmac says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    As a Vikes fan, I’ve got to say, I like the Lions’ core of players.

    Not so much Suh, but CJ, MS, RBush, Delmas and co. make up a solid team.

    Since I’ve got nothing to root for in 2013, may as well enjoy the Lions lol

  51. bender4700 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:41 PM

    We saw why Megatron is Megatron, and MegaDiva is MegaDiva.

    Dallas has the wrong culture. Cheering a loss that happened because Romo threw a late game INT. Now Bryant showing how Dallas doesn’t have the culture needed to win.

    Sad. Jerry Jones is ultimately to blame.

  52. fordmandalay says: Oct 27, 2013 4:42 PM

    I bet Shea from Irving’s head just exploded. Again.

  53. realfootballfan says: Oct 27, 2013 4:42 PM

    The Cowboys ought to be embarrassed. No way you should let anyone drive the field on you in 50 seconds with no timeouts.

    Also, the Lions could be amazing if they had a better coach.

  54. warhammer420 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:42 PM

    What a finish! 2 amazing clutch throws by Stafford at the end. Incredible game!

  55. zingo1978 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:43 PM

    That. Was. Awesome.

  56. cruzer1996 says: Oct 27, 2013 4:43 PM

  61. 10kmp says: Oct 27, 2013 4:44 PM

    How many YEARS is Jerry Jones going to let this nucleus stay together before he blows it up? IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK JERRY. The Romo, Witten, Bryant, Austin, O-Line et al… it isn’t getting it done. Year after year after freakin year. How in the world did this guy succeed to the point of billionaire? He is dense. Utterly, overtly dense… or maybe just arrogant. Sigh…

  62. cobaltdriver says: Oct 27, 2013 4:46 PM

  63. 12brichandfamous says: Oct 27, 2013 4:47 PM

    Wonderful job lions competing for the full 60 minutes. In previous years, 4 turnovers led to some mailed-in peformances.

    dear Dez, leadership is getting people to hear your message and accept it. when people are pushing you away, you are not being heard. try another tactic.

  64. drewzducks says: Oct 27, 2013 4:47 PM

    I wouldn’t want to be Dez’s momma. There’s gonna be some serious B slappin’ going on if history is any indicator.

  65. salscobrakai says: Oct 27, 2013 4:52 PM

    Only thing that can top this is if Dez gets arrested this week.

  66. timothyevans7 says: Oct 27, 2013 5:00 PM

    One of the most exciting games I have ever seen.

  67. mintberrycrunch1 says: Oct 27, 2013 5:03 PM

    Stafford is the bizarro Romo. The more intense and high pressure the game gets the better he plays.

  68. immafubared says: Oct 27, 2013 5:03 PM

    Did I hear anything about how pourous the Dallas D was. I mean they left guys wide open all day. Calvin is great but 300 yard great. The rest of the teams Dalls plays probably won’t even try to run, why bother. Just pass.

  69. jacobk621 says: Oct 27, 2013 5:04 PM

    So Jerry Jones said the player to stop was Reggie Bush and not Calvin Johnson ,,, Bwahahahahahahah !!!! The Recent cowboy collapses are something of epic proportions !!!!

  70. immafubared says: Oct 27, 2013 5:04 PM

    Again, another piss poor time management on the part of the head coach that Jerry so loves. This guy has cost Dallas at least three winable games by not understanding clock management.

  71. cometkazie says: Oct 27, 2013 5:07 PM

    I was actually rooting for Detroit at the end.

    Lotsa spunk for that boy out of UGa.

  72. jerrod777 says: Oct 27, 2013 5:08 PM

    To all you Dez haters – listen to the postgame comments after the game by Tony Romo. Dez was not belittling anyone, or being a prima donna wanting the ball. He is an emotional guy and was trying to get his team fired up. Nothing wrong with caring. You can spin it any way you want, but find out the truth before you make up stuff and crucify someone to prove your preconceived point.

  73. whatjusthapped says: Oct 27, 2013 5:10 PM

    What’s happened to the NFC East?

    I think it is possible (for the first time) that the divisional winner will go into the playoffs with a 6-10 record.

  74. pillsbury13 says: Oct 27, 2013 5:10 PM

    While Dez Bryant’s behavior was ridiculous, it’s eerily similar to Terrell Owens. Interesting how they are having the EXACT same problems they were having five years ago when he was let go.

  75. ivanpavlov0000 says: Oct 27, 2013 5:10 PM

    It would have been fun to be a Lions fan at Ford Field for that finish. Everyone in that stadium suddenly became bonded – best friends for life!

    Dez Bryant acted like a jerk, but he doesn’t suck as a player. That 50 yard catch and run for a TD was pretty cool. He should spend some time with Megatron in the office season and learn some maturity.

    Stafford’s TD … wow! Brilliant. No one saw it coming, not even the other 10 Lions on the field!

    As for the Cowboys … when you get 4 turnovers and can’t make the game into a blowout … you deserve to lose!

  76. fnf417 says: Oct 27, 2013 5:20 PM

    I’m not hearing many cowboys fans talking much about Dez now

    Just think, Jason Garrett was the hottest name in coaching in 2006 or so. Baltimore actually tussled over whether to hire him or John Harbaugh.

    And for those hoping for Gruden, I don’t think Romo could handle his tough coaching. He is kind of mentally fragile as it is. I think Gruden would realize that, and it’s why he won’t take that job.

As long as that egotistical know-nothing maniac Jerry Jones and his retard of a son owns the team, which will be for the rest of my lifetime, I will never watch them again. I sincerely hope they lose every game they play.

  88. mtr75 says: Oct 27, 2013 6:11 PM

    That last 1:40 was the worst-coached period of football i have ever see, at any level. If Dallas had taken 3 knees and punted Denver has the ball on their 20 at best with 30 seconds on the clock and not timeouts. At the very least, call timeout after the catch at the 1 yard line. Just appallingly poor coaching.

  89. webothlose says: Oct 27, 2013 6:15 PM

    if true, then demarcus ware was holding him back and jason whitten was about to deck him to keep him from firing up his teammates. which would make sense, because we know both those guys are me first guys, while dez is a team guy. and you can spin it however you want, but romeo;s version is laughable. and even funnier was the pregame raving over the more mature and professional dez.

    No, not angry. It’s funny to see a team act like they won their first game ever. They’re pros and should act like they’ve won a game at home after being down a couple points. Like I said, it’s the lions, so it makes sense. They won’t be relevant in a month anyway.

    Statistically, Dez Bryant is much better than Calvin Johnson, and has the same amount of Superbowl rings.

    Keep hating on Dez, but anyone can look up the stats and see he’s objectively and impartially better at what he does than CJ. Its not open to interpretation, the numbers are there!

    Stafford’s heads up play was brilliant. As for Mr. Jerry Jones, I’d like to offer a quote by Nelson from the Simpsons…. HAH-HAH!!!!!!

    So, did you watch the same game everyone else watched, or are you talking Madden football?

    To clarify…after the same number of pro games. That said, I wish Dez was more professional like CJ,

    At least while I type this, the Broncos put another TD on the Skins making me feel “slightly” better…

    Yes, you’re right, I think the kickoff back to the Cowboys was at 0:12.

    Good win for the lions. Too bad they celebrate like they won the Super Bowl. Tantrum schwartz throwing down the headset. Take it easy, guys you beat Dallas by 1 after being 3 point favorites at home. Maybe act like you’ve been there bef… Oh right- it’s the lions. Stay classy Detroit.

    Oh yes act like you’ve been there before. Just like Dez does when he scores a touchdown, and not like Megatron when he scores…

    You know it is a great week when the Steelers, the Washington franchise, the Cowboys and the Falcons all lose and it is particularly delicious when they lost because of poor QB play.

    Romo once again played just good enough to lose. He has made a career out of that.

    I have been a Cowboys fan for over 40 years and today is the day that it comes to an end

    That 90’s dynasty was one of the best teams ever.

    I hated them.

    Gotta take the bad with the good, man.

    Ya know, I don’t think Matthew Stafford can be trusted………………;)

    to the people talking about the stats of both players thru 50 games saying that proves dez is a better overall player: can you name the QB throwing to calvin his first 50 games? because i know for a fact that dez’s first 50 he had a pretty good seasoned tony romo who was already an established QB. stafford was drafted in 09, which would be CJs 3rd year, which he missed most of 09. so thru CJs first 50 games he had qbs such as: jon kitna, dan orlavski, drew stanton, mike mcmahon, dante culpepper, rookie stafford. dez bryant has had 1 qb, tony romo. u think CJ would have had better #s had he had a seasoned matthew stafford his entire first 50 games? yea thats what i thought.

    That’s true if you believe your team is going to turn it around sometime in the future. After nearly 20 years of failure and knowing its not going to get better anytime soon its a little different. The Jones/Romo/Garrett era is never going to win anything important.

    dave and/or monkeyhate: this is absolutely the stupidest post thus far. even a blind monkey or any human with a 50 IQ could see that calvin johnson is better than dez bryant. i don’t care what fantasy geek stat you trot out. the same stats said randall cunningham and john elway were relative equals, which is ridiculous. while the game is on, are you calculating your fantasy points instead of watching?

    we should be 7-1

    Lost in everything in that Dallas game, considering how many BLATANT HOLDING penalties that Tyron Smith gets away with every game (not the “garden variety/holding on every down, but PLAY-CHANGING HOLDING that he does), that his typical blatant hold being called was what made it possible for Detroit to even have the ball back with enough time to drive for a touchdown.

    Justice for the teams that have been robbed blind while that guy tackles, undresses and strip searches defensive ends every game and gets away with it.

    Thanks Dez,

    I lost my fantasy matchup because you cant shut your mouth.
