Stafford’s Fake Spike & Calvin’s 329-Yard Game | Cowboys vs. Lions (Week 8, 2013) | NFL Full Game


>>>WE’VE GOT OUR LIMITS. YOU CAN’T GO NO MORE THAN 60 MINUTES. COWBOYS ON THREE. ONE IT WOULD BE, THREE.>>COWBOYS.>>PUSH TO THE END. AND THEN WE’RE GOING TO — AND PUT IT ON THE FIELD. PUT IT WHEREVER, LET’S GO. LEAD IT WITH YOUR HEADS, LEADS IT WITH YOUR HEARTS.>>. >>Laura: THIS IS SOME INTENSITY. I TALKED TO ONE OF THE LIONS MOST INTENSE, MOST FIRING LEADERS, CENTER DOMINICK RAY OLE LA. THIS TEAM COULD DEAL WITH ADVERSITY. WE DO THAT WITH THE BEST OF US. BUT WE’RE STILL LEARNING HOW TO HANDLE SUCCESS. WE HAVE A BIG WIN, WE FOLLOW IT UP WITH A BIG FAILURE. THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A MORAL VICTORY. WE NEED THIS ONE TODAY. I’M TAKING MY KIDS TO DISNEY LAND NEXT WEEK FOR THE BYE WEEK. I DO NOT WANT TO BE SHAKING MICKEY MOUSE’S HAND AND THINKING ABOUT HOW WE BLEW THIS GAME. DICK.>>Dick: IT IS AN IMPORTANT GAME BECAUSE THE WINNER GOES 5-3 IN THE MIDWAY POINT, WHICH IS A GREAT START TO A SEASON. AND THERE IS JEREMY ROSS, WHO WILL RETURN THE OPENING KICK. MICHAEL SPRULOCK, INACTIVE TODAY, HAS BEEN THE PUNTING KICKOFF RETURNER AND DAN BAILEY GETTING READY TO SET IT OFF FOR THE COWBOYS. COWBOYS, TRYING TO STRETCH THEIR WINNING STREAK TO THREE AND THE LIONS TRYING TO AVOID A SECOND STRAIGHT HOME LOSS AS THIS KICK WILL SAIL AND ACTUALLY HIT THE UPRIGHT. THE LIONS WILL BEGIN FROM THE 20 YARD LINE. MATTHEW STAFFORD IS ON A ROLL, FOLKS.>>Dick: THERE’S A CONFIDENCE IN MATTHEW STAFFORD, NOT ONLY IN WHAT’S GOING ON AROUND HIM, BUT THE STYLE OF PLAY. I THINK IN LARGE PART DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF REGGIE BUSH. THEY ACTUALLY HAVE BALANCE IN THIS OFFENSE.>>Dick: REGGIE BUSH, BY THE WAY, HAD HIS RIGHT KNEE WRAPPED AND DID NOT PRACTICE ON FRIDAY. SOME CONCERN AS TO WHETHER HE WAS HEALTHY. HE SAID HE WAS AND THERE HE IS AS THE TAILBACK. FIRST DOWN FROM THE 20s. AND WE’LL HAVE A FALSE START PENALTY TO START THE GAME. AND IT’S AGAINST LARRY WARFORD, THE RIGHT GUARD, I BELIEVE.>>Referee: FALSE START, OFFENSE NUMBER 75. FIVE-YARD PENALTY. STILL FIRST DOWN.>>Dick: ALL RIGHT. THE KEY PLAYERS OFFENSIVELY FOR DETROIT — >>Brian: THE CENTER D OI MINIC RAIOLA. REGGIE BUSH AND BRANDON PETTIGREW, JOHNSON ARE GOING TO HAVE A BIG IMPACT IN TODAY’S GAME IF, INDEED, THEY CAN BEAT THE COWBOYS.>>Dick: THEY START OFF WITH A BIT OF A HOLD ON, FIRST DOWN AND 15. GOING TO THE AIR OF THE FIRST PLAY OF THE GAME. AND THE PASS IS CAUGHT BY RYAN BROYLES. WE LOOK AT THE KEY PLAYERS ON THE COWBOYS SIDE OF THE BALL.>>Brian: BRANDON CARR IS GOING TO LOOK FOR A LOT OF HELP TO TRY AND STOP CALVIN JOHNSON.>>Dick: DeMARCUS WARE WITH A STRAINED THIGH, INACTIVE. ONCE AGAIN, HE HAS PLAYED IN 134 STRAIGHT GAMES. THAT’S TWO IN A ROW, HE’S OUT OF THERE. SECOND DOWN AND SEVEN. PLAY ACTION. AND THE PASS OFF THE HANDS OF PETTIGREW, THE TIGHT END. AND SO THAT WILL BRING UP THIRD DOWN AND SEVEN. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE KEY INACTIVES. AND BOTH TEAMS HAVE THEM TODAY. AND WE MENTIONED DeMARCUS WARE, BUT THE WIDE RECEIVER, MILES AUSTIN, DeMARCO MURRAY, THEIR TOP RUNNING BACK OUT. THEIR STARTING SAFETY, J.J. WILCOX. SPRULOCK, WE TALKED ABOUT. THIRD DOWN AND SEVEN. JOIQUE BELL HAS NOW COME IN AS RUNNING BACK. PLENTY OF TIME. AND GOING DEEP FOR CALVIN JOHNSON, OFF HIS HANDS, INCOMPLETE. AND DOWNFIELD, AND IT WAS BRANDON CARR, THE CORNERBACK, AND HE’LL BE A BUSY GUY ON JOHNSON.>>Brian: THIS IS ONE OF THOSE PATENTED JUMP BALLS, THE HIGH THROWS THAT MATTHEW STAFFORD IS SO COMFORTABLE IN THROWING TO CALVIN JOHNSON. WE SAID IT MANY TIMES. TWO PEOPLE ON CALVIN JOHNSON DOESN’T MEAN THAT HE’S COVERED. TYPICALLY, HE’LL COME DOWN, PARTICULARLY WHEN HE LASS THE CHANCE TO GATHER HIMSELF AND GO UP FOR IT. HE TYPICALLY WILL COME DOWN WITH IT.>>Dick: SO A PENALTY AND THEN THREE AND OUT. LOW SNAP TO SAM MARTIN. AND A GOOD KICK HERE TO DWAYNE HARRIS. INSIDE THE 15 AS DWAYNE HARRIS GETS CLOSE TO THE 30 YARD LINE. SO HERE COMES TONY ROMO WITH HIS FIRST APPEARANCE. AND HE LED THE COWBOYS TO THAT BIG WIN. AND WE HAVE AN INJURED PLAYER DOWN ON THE FIELD AND I THINK IT’S THE KICK RETURNER, HARRIS, WHO WAS SHAKEN UP. THAT WAS A 64-YARD PUNT BY MARTIN, WHO HAD A TOUGH PUNT LAST WEEK WHICH SET [email protected]@ú@@x>>Dick: NO SCORE AND HARRIS CAME OFF THE FIELD ON HIS OWN POWER. THE COWBOYS WILL START FROM THE 30 YARD LINE. AGAINST THE DEFENSE IFR TEAM. AS YOU MENTIONED AT THE TOP, WHICH DEFENSE IS GOING TO SHOW UP? WE KIND OF FIGURE THE OFFENSES WILL TODAY, COACH.>>Brian: THIS DETROIT TEAM HAS STRUGGLED, BUT NO MORE THAN LAST WEEK AGAINST ANDY DALTON. THAT WOULD BE MY BIGGEST CONCERN, THAT THEY COULD ONLY GET TO ANDY DALTON ONE TIME.>>Dick: STARTING FROM THE 30, JOSEPH RANDALL WITH HIS SECOND START AS RUNNING BACK WITH DeMARCO MURRAY OUT OF THAT. RANDALL LOSES HIS FOOTING AS HE BRINGS IT OUT FOR A FIVE-YARD GAIN. LET’S LOOK AT THE COWBOYS PEOPLE TO LOOK AT.>>WE TALKED ABOUT TRAVIS FREDERICK ON THE INSIDE AND TERRANCE WILLIAMS ON THE OUTSIDE OPPOSITE JASON WITTEN AND DEZ BRYANT. THEY’RE GOING TO GET THE LION’S SHARE, LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY OF THE COVERAGE. SO, OBVIOUSLY, THE ROOKIE WILLIAMS ON THE OUTSIDE COULD HAVE A BIG DAY.>>Dick: AND THEY BRING IN TRAVIS LEWIS, THE LINEBACKER, AND SUH COMES OUT ON SECOND DOWN AND FIVE. ROMO WITH A PUMP FAKE. MAKE IT TWO. AND NOW HE TAKES OFF. PENALTY FLAG DOWN AND ROMO IS TACKLED AT THE 36 YARD LINE. AFTER PICKING UP A COUPLE OF YARDS AND OUR FIRST PENALTY OF THE GAME, REFEREE IS BILL BENEVICH TODAY AND HIS CREW.>>Referee: HOLDING. DEFENSE, NUMBER 28. FIVE-YARD PENALTY FROM THE END OF THE LINE. AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>Dick: AND A PENALTY AGAINST BILL MEDICALLY, THE NICKEL BACK FOR THE LIONS AND THAT WILL GIVE THE COWBOYS A FIRST DOWN.>>Brian: DOWN HERE IN THE SLOT, SO OFTEN, WHEN A QUARTERBACK SCRAMBLES, HE’S PLAYING MAN COVERAGE, HE’S TRAILING. HE HAS NO IDEA WHERE TONY ROMO IS OR WHAT’S GOING ON. BOY, HE LOOKS LIKE HE JUST GOT TRAMPLED OVER THE TOP OF BEASLEY. BEASLEY WENT DOWN LIKE A SHOT. EVIDENTLY, THEY FELT LIKE HE HAD TOO MUCH CONTACT WITH BEASLEY DOWN THE FIELD.>>Dick: NOW THE COWBOYS AT THE 32. THEY’RE THIRD IN THE LEAGUE IN SCORING OFFENSE AT 32 POINTS A GAME. AND HERE IS RANDALL, COMING TO THE OUTSIDE. AND RANDALL IS TACKLED SHY OF MIDFIELD. AND IT’S HOUSTON WHO MAKES THE TACKLING FROM THE SECONDARY AFTER THE SEVEN-YARD PICK UP.>>Brian: DETROIT DEFENSIVELY. SUH AND FAIRLEY, IT’S CUNNINGHAM, THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR SAID THE KEY TO THEIR DEFENSE ARE THESE SAFETIES, QUIN AND DELMAS.>>Dick: AND GOOD NEWS FOR COWBOY FANS. DWAYNE HARRIS JUST HAD THE WIND KNOCKED OUT OF HIM, SO HE SHOULD BE BACK. IN FACT, THERE IS HARRIS LINING UP IN THE BLOCK TO THE LEFT AND THE HANDOFF TO RANDALL. AND TO RANDALL IS STOPPED. FOR A LOSS OF THREE.>>Brian: YOU’RE GOING TO SEE THIS PRESSURE RIGHT HERE. BENTLEY IS GOING TO SHOOT THE GAP. UNCHARACTERISTIC OF DETROIT, THEY’RE USING THE SAFETIES. YOU CAN SEE THE PRESSURE ON THERE. DEBTLY, LIKE A LINEBACKER IS THERE TO CLEAN IT UP. DETROIT IS PULLING OUT ALL STOPS TO TRY TO PUT DALLAS IN A LONG STOP.>>Dick: DETROIT’S SECOND IS ON THIRD DOWN DEFENSE. AND THEY’RE ALSO SECOND AND THIRD DOWN OFFENSE. HERE IS ROMO GOING DEEP ON THIRD AND SIX. AND THE PATH APPEARS TO BE OUT OF BOUNDS. TERRANCE WILLIAMS, THE RECEIVER AS ROMO TAKES THE HIT. AND THE PATH THEY GO IS INCOMPLETE.>>Brian: WILLIAMS IS THEIR SPEED GUY ON THE OUTSIDE. HERE, THE BALL IS JUST FAR ENOUGH OUTSIDE. HE HAS NO CHANCE AT ALL AND IT’S TOO BAD BECAUSE HE TOOK A SHOT FOR A VERY LEGAL HIT BY NICK FAIRLEY.>>Dick: SO IT’S FOURTH DOWN AND CHRIS JONES WILL PUNT FOR THE COWBOYS. AND THIS IS RYAN BROYLES BACK DEEP AND THE KICK GOES INTO THE END ZONE FOR A TOUCHBACK. SO RYAN BROYLES RETURNING PUNTS TODAY AND THE DETROIT LIONS GOING BACK ON OFFENSE IN A SCORELESS GAME ú@ú@ú@ú@ú@úúú@ú@ú@ú@ú@úh>>Dick: ALL RIGHT. WE’RE BACK HERE IN DETROIT, BUT THE ACTION WILL BE IN ST. LOUIS TONIGHT FOR GAME FOUR OF THE WORLD SERIES. WHAT ABOUT LAST NIGHT’S GAME WITH AN OBSTRUCTION CALL DECIDING THE GAME IN THE NINTH INNING? CARDINALS LEAD, TWO GAMES TO ONE. IT’S SHAPING UP TO BE A TRUE FALL CLASSIC CLASSIC AND THE RED SOX TRY TO COME BACK.>>Brian: THEY’RE EVERYWHERE, AREN’T THEY?>>Dick: FIRST DOWN FROM THE 20. AND HERE IS REGGIE BUSH. GETTING RUNNING ROOM UP THE MIDDLE. AND THEY DON’T MIND RUNNING CLOSE. GOOD RECEIVER OUT OF THE BACKFIELD RUN UP THE MIDDLE. AND HE GETS SEVEN YARDS.>>Brian: IF THEY’RE ABLE TO GET REGGIE BUSH INTO THE FLOW LIKE THAT, A FIRST SIMPLE FIRST DOWN RUN. PRETTY EASY CALL AND IT LENDS ITSELF THEN TO THOSE PLAY ACTION PASSES AGAINST THIS REALLY BIG, TALL RECEIVING GROUP OF THE DETROIT LIONS DOWN THE FIELD.>>Dick: AND LENAHAN SAYS THE COWBOYS WITH FINDING THEIR GROOVE DEFENSIVELY. THE EAGLES ARE ONLY THREE. HERE IS THE HANDOFF TO BUSH AGAIN. REGGIE BUSH WILL HAVE A FIRST DOWN, UP TO THE 32 YARD LINE, PICKING UP FIVE MORE YARDS. SEAN LEE, THE MIDDLE LINEBACKER MAKING THE TACKLE.>>. >>Brian: AND THEY DON’T HAVE TO PRACTICE A LOT OF PLAYS. REGGIE BUSH, A GREAT ZONE RUNNER, BASICALLY GIVE HIM THE BALL, LET HIM USE HIS VISION. CUT BACK, PRETTY THE HOLE. HE’S JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED FOR THIS DETROIT LIONS TEAM THAT WAS IN TOTAL UNBALANCE THE LAST TWO YEARS, HEAVILY ON THE PASS.>>Dick: 94 TOTAL YARDS IN THE LOSING GAME IN CINCINNATI. STAFFORD GOING UNDERNEATH TO REGGIE BUSH. AND BUSH WITH A MINIMAL GAIN OUT TO THE 36 AND NOW FOR A GAME BREAK, LET’S CHECK IN WITH JOEL.>>THANK YOU, DICK BEEN WE GO TO LONDON. COLIN KAEPERNICK ON THE ZONE READS, GIVE US A FRANCOEUR. HE’S IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN AND WEMBLEY. DICK AND BRIAN, CHEERS FROM LONDON.>>Brian: DICK, I THINK THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ers ARE GETTING SCARY. IT’S THE POWER RUNNING GAME. YOU BETTER WATCH OUT FOR THE NINERS. WE HAVE THEM IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.>>Dick: I DON’T THINK IT HURT THEM TO LOSE A FEW EARLY ON.>>Brian: T PROVERBIAL WAKE-UP CALL.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND SIX. HERE IS BUSH. A HEAVY DOSE OF REGGIE BUSH EARLY ON TO THE LIONS. THIS IS A GAIM GAIN OF ONLY TWO. STOP FOR BUSH, WHO HAS MISSED ONE GAME THIS YEAR. THAT AGAINST THE REDSKINS IN WEEK THREE, A GAME THAT THE LIONS WON.>>Brian: AND IT’S INTERESTING THAT WE TAKE REGGIE BUSH OFF THE FIELD THIS THIRD DOWN, THIS THIRD AND THREE TO FOURS WERE TYPICALLY YOU LOOK FOR A MATCHUP BETWEEN REGGIE BUSH AND A LINEBACKER, MAYBE A SAFETY. THEY’RE GOING TO COME IN AND THEY LIKE WHAT THEY SAY IN JOIQUE BELL. HE’S A PRETTY GOOD PASS PROTECTOR.>>Dick: FALSE START, SECOND ONE OF THE GAME AGAINST THE LIONS.>>Referee: FALSE START, OFFENSE, NUMBER 87. FIVE-YARD PENALTY, STILL THIRD DOWN.>>Dick: SO THE TIGHT END, BRANDON PETTIGREW. SO THEY GOT THEMSELVES IN A HOLE WITH THE FALSE START IN THE FIRST PLAY FROM SCRIMMAGE. NOW THEY DO SO AGAIN.>>Brian: THIS IS WHAT GIVES YOU GRAY HAIRS OR RUNS YOU OUT OF THE BUSINESS AS A COACH. YOU JUST WENT FROM A CONVERTIBLE THREE AND FOUR. YOU’RE NOW TO A THIRD AND LONG WHERE IF YOU COULD CONVERT 20% OF THEM, YOU’RE AHEAD OF THE CURVE.>>Dick: THIRD DOWN AND NINE FROM THE 33. REGGIE BUSH BACK IN THE GAME WITH A SLIGHT SLIDE. AND A TIME-OUT CALLED BY THE COWBOYS. SO IT HAS TO BE IMPORTANT ENOUGH FOR DALLAS TO CALL A TIME-OUT, SOMETHING THAT THEY SAW ON THE SIDELINES. AND WE WILL TAKE A BREAK AND RETURN TO FORD FIELD IN JUST A MOMENT. púp>>Dick: COWBOYS CALLED A TIME-OUT. THERE IS RIDDIC INACTIVE IN THE LAST TWO GAMES. JIM SCHWARTZ TELLING US HE’S GOING TO GO IN. THEY HAVE PLAYS FOR THIS BACK.>>Brian: PRIMARILY, THEY LIKE HIM AS A RECEIVER OUT OF THE BACKFIELD. IT DOESN’T ROLL THROUGH TO GIVE REGGIE BISH OR JOIQE BELL A BREAK. HE’S IN THERE FOR A REASON.>>Dick: THREE RECEIVERS LINED UP TO THE RIGHT AND BUSH IS IN THE SLOT TO THE RIGHT. AND THE PASS IS TO RIDDIC AND RIDDIC IS STOPPED SHORT OF THE FIRST DOWN, TACKLE IN THE 40. GOOD PLAY BY HAYDEN, WHO HAS BEEN BOTHERED BY A SORE BACK AND IT’S FOURTH DOWN IN THE LIONS WILL HAVE TO KICK.>>Brian: AND YOU CAN SEE THE MENTALITY. GO AHEAD AND PUT CALVIN JOHNSON AND REGGIE BUSH AND PETTIGREW AND ALL THE OTHER RECEIVERS TO ONE SIDE AND SEE WHAT KIND OF MATCHUP WE GO WITH THEO RIDDIC.>>Dick: SO DWAYNE HARRIS IS ALL RIGHT AFTER HAVING THE WIND NOKT OUT OF HIM ON THE FIRST PUNT RETURN. SAM MARTIN, THIS ONE IS ANOTHER BEAUTY AND IT’S GOING TO GO OUT OF BOUNDS. SO SAM MARTIN, THE ROOKIE FROM APPALACHIAN STATE WITH A TERRIFIC PUNT. WELL, WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT CALVIN JOHNSON AND DEZ BRYANT. THEY HAVEN’T FIGURED YET, BUT THIS IS WHAT THEY’VE DONE AFTER THEIR FIRST 50 CAREER STARTS.>>Brian: AND YOU LOOK AT THAT AND SAY DEZ BRYANT IS A BETTER RECEIVER NOW. BUT YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND, THEY THROW A LOT OF UNDERNEATH PASSES AND ONE PASS TO DEZ BRYANT. HIS NUMBERS, HE’S GOING TO HAVE MORE RECEPTIONS, CLEARLY CALVIN JOHNSON HAS PROVEN OVER THIS YEAR AND A LOT OF YEARS. HE IS A BIG PLAY RECEIVER DOWN THE FIELD.>>Dick: THAT’S WHERE STATS CAN BE OVERRELATED IN THE NFL. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THOSE. CALVIN JOHNSON, TERRIFIC AS JOSEPH RANDALL WITH HIS BEST CARRY OF THE DAY BRINGS IT OUT TO THE 29. THE STRONG SAFETY MAKING THE TACKLE ON RANDALL.>>Brian: LIKE WE SAID, THE IMPACT OF REGGIE BUSH ON THE DETROIT LIONS, LIKEWISE, THE RUNNING GAME, DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER IT COMES FROM RANDALL OR THEY COULD OCCASIONALLY GET TO DeMARCO MURRAY, WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES FOR TONY ROMO TO THROW THE BALL DOWN THE FIELD IF THEY CAN GET THE RUNNING GAME CRANKED UP.>>Dick: RANDALL HAD 65 YARDS AGAINST THE EAGLES PLAY.LE HAD 65 YARDS AGAINST THE EAGLES PLAY.>>Dick: THEY GO TO RANDLE. AND A LOSS OF ONE.>>Brian: WHEN YOU START TO SEE LEWIS INTO THE INTERIOR OF THE FRONT SEVEN, WE SAW BILL BENTLEY MAKE A TACKLE BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. YOU CAN SEE THE DMIMT BY THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR THE LIONS TO RECOGNIZE JUST WHAT WE’VE SAID. I DON’T WANT THE COWBOYS TO GET THEIR RUNNING GAME CRANKED UP.>>Dick: RANDLE IS OUT, AND TAYLOR WHO HAD A TOUCHDOWN, HE’S A RECEIVER OUT OF THE BACKFIELD. THIRD DOWN AND THREE FOR DALLAS. AND ROMO SWINGS IT OUT TO TANNER. AND TANNER WILL HAVE THE FIRST DOWN. AND GET KNOCKED OUT OF BOUNDS AT THE 45 BY.>>. >>Brian: WATCH WHAT HAPPENED WITH TANNER HERE. THE DEFENSE GETS PICKED OFF RIGHT THERE. THEY CAN’T GET TO THE OUTSIDE. THIS IS AS SIMPLE AS A THROW AS CAN BE MADE. IT’S LINE AN EXTENDED HANDOFF FOR TONY ROMO. I CAN BASICALLY HAND OFF A WIDE HANDOFF AND GET A FIRST DOWN FOR COMPLETION.>>Dick: RANDLE IS BACK IN. HERE IS THE PASS TO THE OUTSIDE BY JAMES HANNA, A TIGHT END, AND HANNA GETS INTO LIONS TERRITORY. PICKS UP 11 YARDS AND IT’S ANOTHER COWBOYS FIRST DOWN.>>Brian: IT’S INTERESTING, WE TALK ABOUT THE BIG PLAY RECEIVERS IN THIS OFFENSE. WE SAW DETROIT THROW THE BALL OUT TO THEO REDDIC. JAMES HANNA GETS A PASS BECAUSE EVERYBODY IS SO FOCUSED ON DEZ BRYANT.>>Dick: THE UNDERSTUDY PLAYING A ROLE IN THIS GAME. FIRST DOWN. HERE IS RANDLE GOING UP THE MIDDLE AND RANDLE PICKING UP FOUR YARDS ON FIRST DOWN. COWBOYS ARE DOWN TO THE 40 YARD LINE.>>Brian: THIS FIRST DOWN RUN EFFICIENCY HAS ALWAYS BEEN SO IMPORTANT TO OFFENSES. IT KEEPS YOU ON SCHEDULE. YOU HEAR THAT TERM ALL THE TIME. CONVERTIBLE SECOND AND THIRD DOWNS. THAT’S WHAT THE COWBOYS ARE DOING WELL ON FIRST DOWN HERE. HANDING THE BALL OFF AND GETTING THEMSELVES INTO A REAL MANAGEABLE SECOND AND THIRD DOWNS.>>Dick: NOW THEY HAVE DUNBAR WHO HAS BEEN ACTIVE AGAINST THE EAGLES. SECOND DOWN AND TEN. AND THE HANDOFF IS TO DUNBAR, WHO’S STOPPED FOR A LOSS. IT WILL BE THIRD DOWN AND NINE COMING UP AND ASHLEY PALMER, THE OUTSIDE BACKER, THEY LOSE THREE.>>Brian: AGAIN, YOU’RE GOING TO SEE A D.B., BILL BENTLEY COMING OFF THE EDGE. I DON’T KNOW, I’VE SEEN THE GAME WHERE SO MANY DBs MAKE PLAYS IN THE RUNNING GAME BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. AT SOME POINT WITH ALL THESE DBs ON THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE, TONY ROMO IS GOING TO SAY, FOOY, I’M GOING TO THREE THE BALL DOWNFIELD TO MY GOOD RECEIVER.>>Dick: LOOKS LIKE BOTH TEAMS WANT TO USE EVERYONE ON THIS ROSTER HERE IN THE FIRST QUARTER. THIRD DOWN AND NINE. FROM THE 43, ROMO GETTING TIME. AND THE PASS IS CAUGHT BY HANNA BUT HE’S TACKLED QUICKLY. A GOOD DEFENSIVE PLAY BY MATHIS. AND CHRIS JONES WILL COME IN TO KICK IT AWAY FOR THE COWBOYS WHO GOT INTO LION TERRITORY.>>Brian: AND, DICK, YOU CAN HAND THE BALL OFF ALL YOU WANT TO THESE SECOND LEVEL GUYS, BUT THEY’RE GOING, THAT’S FINE WITH ME. I’M GOING THE TAKE CARE OF DEZ BRYANT, REGGIE BUSH.>>Dick: BROYLES BACK DEEP. YOU WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THE LEADING MEN IN THIS GAME. WE’RE GOING TO SEE THEM COME ON FOR THE LIONS, LED BY MATTHEW STAFFORD WHEN WE RETURN.>>Dick: THE LIONS STARTING FROM THE 10, 3:21 TO GO IN THE FIRST QUARTER, NO SCORE. REGGIE BUSH. RIGHT THERE. FIRST TWO POSSESSIONS FOR THE LIONS. AND A PENALTY. FALSE START ON BOTH OF THEIR FIRST TWO POSSESSIONS.>>Brian: YEAH. WA I’M NOT SEEING JUST YET ARE THOSE SHOTS DOWN THE FIELD. THAT’S WHAT BOTH THESE TEAMS NEED TO SHAKE IT OPEN. RIGHT NOW, NOBODY IS SHOWING THE ABILITY TO GO TO THAT 10, 12-PLAY DRIVE.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND TEN. ON THE SPLIT. HERE IS CALVIN JOHNSON. HE’S GOING. CALVIN JOHNSON BEING CHASED BY FOUR COWBOYS, INSIDE THE 10 AND KNOCKED OUT OF BOUNDS AT ABOUT THE TWO OR THREE. IT WAS JEFF WHO DID IT. 87 YARDS FOR CALVIN JOHNSON AND BREEZED BY THE DALLAS DEFENSE.>>Brian: WHAT A PLAY FAKE FOR REGGIE BUSH OPENED UP THE UNDERNEATH COVERAGE IT TOOK AWAY THE STRAIGHT SHOT TO CALVIN JOHNSON. RIGHT NOW, BRANDON CARR THOUGHT HE HAD HELP INSIDE. IT ALL DISAPPEARED BECAUSE OF THE PLAY FAKE AND IT’S AMAZING THAT A GUY THIS BIG WITH THESE GREAT HANDS AND THIS KIND OF LEAPING ABILITY ALSO HAS THIS KIND OF SPEED.>>Dick: THAT IS THE LONGEST PLAY FROM SCRIMMAGE FOR THE LIONS THIS YEAR. AND FIRST AND GOAL AT THE THREE. AND HERE IS REGGIE BUSH. HIT IMMEDIATELY AND PICKS UP ONE. SO IT WILL BE SECOND AND GOAL.>>Brian: WHAT DID I SAY, WE WERE MISSING THE BIG PLAY? I THINK THIS CONSTITUTES AS A BIG PLAY. A QUICK SLANT TO A RECEIVER. THEY LOVE IT BECAUSE IT ALLOWS THEM TO CATCH THE BALL ON THE RUN. QUARTERBACKS HATE THIS THROW BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW WHERE THE UNDERNEATH COVERAGE IS. BUT WITH THE PLAY FAKE, MATTHEW STAFFORD WAS VERY COMFORTABLE WITH GETTING THE BALL TO CALVIN JOHNSON.>>Dick: NUMBERS LAST WEEK AGAINST THE BENGALS, JEREMY ROSS IN MOTION AND ONCE AGAIN, THE COWBOYS COME ON STRONG AGAINST REGGIE BUSH AND THAT WILL PRESENT A THIRD DOWN AND GOAL. IT’S EITHER NO GAIN OR MAYBE A SLIGHT LOSS, BUT THIRD AND GOAL COMING UP WITH 1:30 REMAINING IN THE FIRST.>>Brian: QUITE A CALL FOR DETROIT, TO HAVE THE BIG PLAY AND HAVE TO SETTLE FOR THREE. EMOTIONALLY, IT’S GUT WRENCHING. WHAT YOU NEED TO WATCH FOR, THIS IS A HUGE, AND I MEAN HUGE RECEIVING CORE FOR DETROIT. CALVIN YAUNSON IS EVERY BIT AT 6’5″. JOSEPH, HE IS EVERY BIT OF 6’6″, 6’7″, BRANDON PETTIGREW, HE’S 6’6″. THIS IS A HUGE RECEIVING CORE.>>Dick: HERE THEY GO. TLIRD AND GOAL FROM THE TWO. STAFFORD ESCAPES TROUBLE, BUT CAN HE GET INTO THE END ZONE AND THROWS IT OUT OF THE END ZONE. AND THE COWBOYS, DO A BRILLIANT JOB DEFENSIVELY FACED WITH FIRST AND GOAL AT THE THREE. AND THE PRESSURE PUT ON BY KYLE WILBUR STARTING FOR DeMARCUS WARE.>>Brian: THIS IS A BRILLIANT JOB BY THE SECONDARY OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS. THEY’RE SHUTTING EVERYBODY OFF, COVERED UP FROM TOP TO BOTTOM HERE ON THE OTHER SIDE. CALVIN JOHNSON ON THE SIDE. THEY’RE GOING TO PUT TWO PEOPLE ON ONE.>>Dick: AND THEY’RE GOING TO GO FOR IT HERE. FOURTH AND GOAL. WHAT A STUNT LINEHAN HAS UP HIS SLEEVE? CALVIN JOHNSON, AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. AND HERE IS STAFFORD’S PASS TO JOHNSON. TOUCHDOWN. AGAIN, JUST THIS LITTLE PLANT ON THE RIGHT, CALVIN JOHNSON. THEY SWAB OUT THE INSIDE COVERAGE WITH JEREMY ROSS, JUST KIND OF CLEANING IT OFF.>>Brian: OPEN THE INSIDE WINDOW FOR CALVIN JOHNSON. HUGE PLAY ON A FOURTH DOWN. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES WHERE JIM SCHWARTZ GOES OVER TO LINEHAN AND SAYS, YOU CAN GO TO CALVIN JOHNSON, YOU CAN GO THE CALVIN JOHNSON OR YOU CAN GO TO CALVIN JOHNSON.>>SO WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE THE LIONS HAD STOPPED THE LIONS ON FOURTH DOWN, >>Dick: 90 YARDS IN SIX PLAYS. MATTHEW STAFFORD HITTING CALVIN JOHNSON ON A TWO-YARD PLAY. FOR STAFFORD, HIS 16th TOUCHDOWN OF THE YEAR. HAS THROWN ONLY FOUR PICKS. AND NOW DWAYNE HARRIS GOING BACK. AND SAM MARTIN, KICKING OFF FOR THE LIONS WITH UNDER A MINUTE REMAINING HERE IN THE FIRST QUARTER. AND THE COWBOYS WILL SETTLE TO TAKE IT OUT AT THE 20 YARD LINE. SO THE LIONS TAKE THE LEAD. IT WAS JOHNSON AND JOHNSON, SAME GUY.>>Dick: LIONS LEAD, 7-0. BEFORE THAT BIG PLAY, COACH, I WAS GOING TO ASK YOU, WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE SHOOT-OUT STORIES WE ALWAYS HAVE?>>Brian: WE WERE ABOUT TO SAY WE TOLD YOU IT WAS GOING TO BE A DEFENSIVE SLUG FEST. BUT THIS IS HOW IT’S LIKELY TO GO. GOOD DEFENSIVE SERIES. DON’T ALLOW BIG PLAYS AND THE ONE TIME YOU COME UP AND TRY TO BE IN MAN COVERAGE, THE BIG PLAY RECEIVERS ARE GOING TO HAVE AN IMPACT. NOW IT’S UP TO DALLAS AND DEZ BRYANT AND THOSE GUYS TO COUNTER.>>Dick: THIS WEEK DEZ BRYANT EARLIER IN THE WEEK SAID I CAN DO ANYTHING THAT CALVIN JOHNSON CAN DO. LATER RECANTED THAT. WELL, HE’S GOT A BALL TO HANDLE HERE. LET’S SEE THE STANDARD SET BY NUMBER 81. LET’S SEE HOW THE COWBOYS RESPOND. FROM THE 20, PLAY ACTION ON FIRST DOWN. AND ROMO GOING DEEP. .A FLAG WILL GO DOWN. WILLIAMS AND BRETT HOUSTON ENGAGE DOWNFIELD AND A FLAG IS THROWN.>>Brian: BOY, IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE DEEP. WE CAN COME BACK AND LOOK. IT LOOKS LIKE THEIR FEET JUST GOT TANGLED UP WITH ONE ANOTHER. TYPICALLY, THAT DOESN’T GET CALLED UNLESS YOU GET A LITTLE SHOVE FROM BEHIND. EITHER WAY, JASON GARRETT — >>Referee: NO FOUL FOR DEFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE. BOTH PLAYERS PLAYED THE BALL. SECOND DOWN.>>Brian: AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HERE. IT LOOKED TO ME AS THOUGH THEY JUST KIND OF GOT TIED UP WITH ONE ANOTHER AS CHRIS HOUSTON TURNS TO RUN. REALLY DIDN’T GET A PUSH. HE JUST KIND OF STUMBLES UP. NORMALLY, HE JUST TRIPPED THE GUY, JUST DON’T BE OBVIOUS. AND I KIND OF LIKE THE FACT THAT THEY PICKED UP THE FLAG. THAT WAS KIND OF A NO HARM, NO FOUL.>>Dick: AND IT IS KEY IS TO BE LOOKING FOR THE BALL, I CAN. SOME DAY WHEN HE GETS UP HERE, HE’LL SAY THE SAME THING.>>Brian: THAT WILL BE A LONG TIME FROM NOW. HE’S TOO GOOD A PLAYER.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND TEN. HE WANTS WHAT YOU HAVE. AND THE CROWD IS — FROM HERE. THERE’S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. ROMO, INCOMPLETE. TRYING TO GO TO WILLIAMS. TIME FOR A GAME BREAK. LET’S CHECK IN WITH CURT MENAFEE.>>Chris: SAINTS RECEIVER PLAYED FOUR GAME WITH A BAD HAND. I THINK HIS HANDS ARE OKAY. NICE CATCH FROM BREW BREES, SAINTS UP EARLY IN THE FIRST QUARTER AGAINST BUFFALO. DICK AND BRIAN.>>Dick: WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A PLAYER WHO CAN DANCE JUST LIKE THAT GUY CAN.>>Brian: IN THE END ZONE, THAT’S PRETTY GOOD. THANKS TO THAT, YOU JUST KIND OF FORGET ABOUT IT, DON’T YOU?>>Dick: THIRD DOWN AND TEN. ROMO, ON THE OUT. AND, AGAIN, GOING TO WILLIAMS. AND HIS COVERING ON THE PLAY THAT TIME. AND IT IS FOURTH DOWN, SO THE COWBOYS GO THREE AND OUT AFTER THE — >>Brian: WELL, YOU’RE GOING TO SEE A SHOT HERE ON TONY ROMO. WE OPENED UP BY SAYING WATCH OUT FOR THAT INSIDE RUSH. THAT’S TWICE NICK FAIRLEY HAS GOTTEN HOME TO GIVE NINE LEGAL SHOTS ON TONY ROMO, THAT INTERIOR OFFENSIVE LINE OF THE COWBOYS HAVING THEIR HANDS FULL WITH NICK FAIRLEY AND NDAMUKONG SUH.>>Dick: RYAN BROYLES CALLING FOR THE FAIR CATCH AT THE 39. THAT GIVES THE LIONS GOOD FIELD POSITION WITH LESS THAN 30 SECONDS REMAINING IN THE FIRST QUARTER. CALIFORNIA, CALVIN JOHNSON ALREADY HAS MADE HIS PRESENCE KNOWN BIG TIME.>>Brian: AGAINST CARR HERE, HE JUST GETS THAT DEEP INSIDE. THEY CAN’T GET THE BALL DOWN TOO DEEP. YOU CAN SEE HE’S SMOTHERED. AND THE MINUTE YOU DON’T PROVIDE THAT UNDERNEATH OR OVER THE TOP HELP, CALVIN JOHNSON IS GOING TO HURT YOU. THIS IS ONE OF THE GREAT NONDIVA RECEIVERS IN THE LEAGUE. I LOVE THIS GUY. HAS A TOUCHDOWN, TURNS AROUND AND HANDS IT TO THE OFFICIAL. A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE NOTE OF THAT.>>Dick: JOIQUE BELL WITH A GOOD RUN FOR THE LIONS. JUST ABOUT GETS TO MIDFIELD. AND JEFF HEATH MAKING THE PLAY AND JEFF IS MAKING A HOMECOMING. WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL IN LAKE ORIEN HERE IN MICHIGAN. 40 MINUTES FROM FORD FIELD, PLAYED HIS HIGH SCHOOL IN THE SAGINAW STATE. THERE ARE HIS FANES AND FAMILY.>>Brian: I DON’T THINK THEY’RE ANY CHEAP SEATS, BUT THEY’RE WAY BACK THERE. THAT’S THE END OF THE FIRST QUARTER, 7->>Dick: PART OF THE SECOND QUARTER, DICK STOCKTON ALONG WITH BRIAN BILLICK AND LAURA OKMIN. HERE IS REGGIE BUSH ON THE SCREEN. AND REGGIE BUSH WITH HIS THREE YARDS AND A FIRST DOWN. SEAN LEE DEFENDING. IT WAS OPEN ON THE SWING PASS TO HIM. GETS SEVEN.>>Brian: ROB MARINELLI, THE JOB HE’S DONE WITH THE DEFENSIVE LINE, YOU LOOK AT THESE GUYS AND, OBVIOUSLY, OTHER THAN — WITH JASON HATCHER INSIDE, NICK HAYDEN, GEORGE SILVA, DRAKE, JARIUS, IT’S A NO-NAME DEFENSE. HE’S DONE AN INCREDIBLE JOB WITH IT.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND THREE. PLAY FAKE. IN THE ROUND, STAFFORD GETS HIT FROM BEHIND AND THE BALL IS PICKED OFF. AND SEAN LEE COMING BACK. SEAN LEE, ALWAYS AROUND THE BALL. AND INTERCEPTS FOR THE COWBOYS. PICKED ONE OFF LAST WEEK AGAINST THE EAGLES, WAS THE NFC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK AND HERE IS WHY.>>Brian: A PLAY FAKE TO OPEN UP THE UNDERNEATH COVERAGE. OBVIOUSLY, IT WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH. THERE’S SEAN LEE. OBVIOUSLY, IT BOUNCED OFF CALVIN JOHNSON’S HANDS, SOMETHING YOU DON’T SEE VERY OFTEN. BUT THAT’S THE THING YOU HEAR ABOUT SEAN LEE. WHEN YOU WATCH HIM PLAY OR YOU VISIT WITH MONTE KIFFIN, THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, YOU TRY TO SAY WHAT MAKES THIS GUY SO GREAT? AND IT’S ALWAYS THERE. HE ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE AROUND THE PLAY, MAKE AN INTERCEPTION, ONE OF THE MORE INTELLIGENT PLAYERS MOPTY KIFFIN TOLD US HE’S EVER BEEN AROUND.>>Dick: NOW TONY ROMO BACK ON CENTER STAGE. FIRST DOWN. AND ROMO’S PASS AND IT’S A CAMP BY TERRANCE WILLIAMS.>>Brian: LEE WAS A SECOND ROUND DRAFT PICK OUT OF PENN STATE. OBVIOUSLY, A GOOD, TOUGH KID. BUT, AGAIN, EVERY COACH YOU TALK WITH, HE QUICKLY, EVEN AS A ROOKIE, BECAME PARENT THAT THIS GUY HAS A KNACK FOR THE GAME. IT’S THE ABILITY TO LOOK AT FILM, AND THEN IN A GAME ENVIRONMENT TO TRANSITION FROM RECOGNITION TO ACTION AS QUICKLY AS HE DOES, NOT THAT HE’S NOT A GREAT ATHLETE, BUT IT SUPERSEDES THE FACT THAT HE’S A GOOD, SOLID ATHLETE THAT REACTS VERY, VERY QUICKLY AND ANTICIPATES.>>Dick: ONLY THE FIFTH INTERCEPTION THROWN BY STAFFORD. CARL IS RIGHT AROUND CALVIN JOHNSON. LEE WAS THERE, AS WELL. SECOND DOWN AND SIX FOR DALLAS. AND — THE CATCH AT THE 48 BY WILLIAMS. A HEAVY DOSE OF TERRANCE WILLIAMS HERE IN THE FIRST HALF AS HE GETS ABOUT SIX YARDS.>>Brian: DALLAS IS TRYING TO GET A QUICK PLAY OFF TO PRESENT A CHALLENGE OR A REVIEW. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. DID HE HAVE CONTROL OF IT? THE THING BOBBLED RIGHT THERE. DOES HE HAVE CONTROL QUICK ENOUGH? BOTH FEET ARE IN, BUT RIGHT THERE HE LOSES CONTROL WITH THAT LITTLE BIT OF MOVEMENT. AND BOTH FEET AREN’T IN AT THAT POINT. I’M NOT SURE THIS DOESN’T COME BACK IF, INDEED, WE GET A CHALLENGE. AND RIGHT NOW, JIM SCHWARTZ IS THINKING ABOUT IT. AND HE’S GOING TO PICK UP THAT PLAY.>>Referee: DETROIT IS RULING — CHALLENGING THE RULING ON THE FIELD OF A COMPLETED PASS. TIME-OUT.>>Dick: SO THE RULING ON THE FIELD THAT IT IS A COMPLETED PASS. SO THE LIONS WITH A CHALLENGE AND WE’LL BE BACK. ú@úHúHúHú@úHú@ú@úÑ>>Dick: THE LIONS HAVE CHALLENGED THE OFFICIAL’S RULING THAT THIS WAS A CATCH BY TERRANCE WILLIAMS. AND MIKE PERRERA, IS THIS AS OBVIOUS A NO CATCH AS IT SEEMS OR NOT?>>WELL, I DON’T THINK IT’S QUITE THAT OBVIOUS BECAUSE HE DOES RECONTROL THE BALL AFTER THE BOBBLE. BUT THEN YOU LOOK TO SEE WHERE WAS THE KNEE WHEN HE FIRST, YOU KNOW, GOT CONTROL OF THE BALL AND THAT’S GOING TO BE WHAT THEY’RE LOOKING AT. AND REMEMBER, YOU’LL GO UNDER THE HOOD SAYING, ALL RIGHT, THEY CALLED IT A CATCH, BUT I THINK WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT, REALLY, THE TOTAL CONTROL LOOKED TO ME LIKE — AND I THINK COACH WAS ON IT RIGHT AWAY, LOOKS TO ME LIKE IT’S NOT REALLY POSSESSED UNTIL HE GETS OUT OF BOUNDS. WATCH THE KNEE. THAT’S WHAT THEY’LL FOCUS ON AFTER THE CONTROL. BUT I THINK THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE PROCESS, THAT HAS TO BE INCOMPLETE.>>Dick: I LOVE IT WHEN YOU AGREE WITH ME, MIKE. IF YOU’D AGREED WITH ME AS MUCH WHEN I WAS COACHING, YOU’D STILL BE COACHING.>>AND I’D STILL BE LIVING IN AN OUTHOUSE WITH ALL THAT MONEY I GOT FROM YOU. YOU ABOUT THAT’S ALL RIGHT.>>Dick: HE HAS CONTROL RIGHT THERE BUT HE LOSES IT. RIGHT THOU, YOU CAN SEE THE KNEE IS DOWN, BUT THE BALL STARTS TO BOBBLE. AND AS THE DREADED PROCESS WERE, I THINK THEY’RE — >>Referee: AFTER REVIEWING THE PLAY, THE RULING ON THE FIELD IS REVERSED. BY THE TIME THE RECEIVER HAS THE CONTROL OF THE BALL, HE’S OUT OF BOUNDS. DETROIT IS NOT CHARGED A TIME-OUT. IT WILL BE THIRD AND SIX AT THE 42 YARDS LINE.>>Dick: SO THEY REVERSE IT. COACH BILLICK, YOU MUST HAVE BEEN UNDEFEATED IN CHALLENGES.>>Brian: FAR FROM IT. I LOVE IT NOW. I NEVER LIKED THE CHALLENGE BECAUSE IT GIVES EVERYONE A REASON TO SECOND-GUESS. YOU WON A LOT OF GAMES, BUT YOU WERE 6-20 ON CHALLENGES.>>Dick: NOW THIRD DOWN AND SIX. AN INCOMPLETE PASS. BALL ON THE 42 OF THE COWBOYS. THE LIONS LEADING 7-0 EARLY IN THE SECOND. AND THERE YOU SEE THIRD DOWN CONVERSIONS EARLY ON. BY THE WAY, TONY ROMO’S LAST FIVE PASSES HAVE BEEN TARGETED FOR TERRANCE WILLIAMS.>>Brian: THAT’S BECAUSE THE DETROIT LIONS ALSO KNOW HE WANTS TO GO TO WHITE, JASON WITTEN. JASON WITTEN IS USUALLY THE GUY THAT YOU WANT TO WATCH ON THIRD DOWN. IF THERE’S A CRUNCH TIME, AN IMPORTANT THIRD DOWN, AND I DON’T KNOW WHEN THERE’S AN UNIMPORTANT THIRD DOWN.>>Dick: DON’T QUITE KNOW WA THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT HERE, OTHER THAN IF THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT THE SPOT, POSSIBLY THE CLOCK. WELL, THEY SAY THE SPOT OF THE BALL, BUT THE PASS IS INCOMPLETE. AND NOW WE’RE READY TO GO.>>Brian: AS I WAS SAYING, JASON WITTEN ON THIRD DOWN, YOU ALWAYS WANT TO KNOW WHERE JASON WITTEN IS ON THIRST DOWN. SO RIGHT HERE, HE’S ON THE RIGHT SIDE. TYPICALLY ON A CRITICAL THIRD DOWN.>>Dick: THIRD AND SIX. PRESSURE ON ROMO. HE THROWS IT AWAY. AND HE WAS GOING FOR COLE BEASLEY. AND ONCE AGAIN, THE LIONS ARE DOING A GOOD JOB UP FRONT AGAINST THAT DEFENSE, OFFENSIVE FRONT OF THE COWBOYS. FOURTH DOWN. GREAT JOB.>>Brian: WATCH WITTEN. HE’S DOUBLE COVERED, BUT BOTH THE LINEBACKER AND QUIN, THEY ALSO GLOW JASON WITTEN IS WHERE TONY ROMO WANTS TO GO. I’D BE SURPRISED TOO FAR SEE HIM WITH ONE-ON-ONE COVERAGE.>>Dick: THEY HAVEN’T TRIED TO THROW TO DEZ BRYANT YET, AS CHRIS JONES KICKING TO RYAN BROYLES. BROYLES ON THE 11, DOWN HE GOES AT THE 15. 47 YARD PUNT. AND THE LIONS COME BACK ON OFFENSE. WITH MATTHEW STAFFORD, WHO HAS A TOUCHDOWN PASS TO CALVIN JOHNSON AND HAS THROWN AN INTERCEPTION.>>Brian: AS WE SAID EARLIER, CALVIN JOHNSON — EXCUSE ME, MATTHEW STAFFORD, THERE’S A CONFIDENCE IN THIS YOUNG MAN. AND IT SHOULD BE. WE FORGET HOW YOUNG HE IS. HE’S ONLY 24 YEARS OLD. AND THE FACT THAT HE’S PLAYED AS MUCH FOOTBALL AS HE HAS, EVEN THOUGH HE’S VERY, VERY YOUNG, HE JUST GROWS IN HIS CONFIDENCE AND AS THEY GIVE HIM WEAPONS, LIKE REGGIE BUSH, THEY’RE ADDING TO THE EQUATION. IT’S THAT CONFIDENCE THAT JUST GROWS AND GROWS.>>Dick: FROM THE 15, PASS IS COMPLETE FOR AN EIGHT-YARD GAIN TO CALVIN JOHNSON. AND GAME BREAK TIME, LET’S CHECK IN AGAIN WITH CURT MENEFEE.>>Chris: WELL, THE PATRIOTS STRUGGLES CONTINUING. DOLPHINS AT NEW ENGLAND, UP 14-0 IN THE SECOND QUARTER AFTER AN INTERCEPTION FROM RYAN TANNEHILL. DICK AND BRIAN.>>Dick: YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT MIGHT HAPPEN TODAY, COACH.>>Brian: DON’T COUNT OUT TOM BRADY JUST YET, JUST YET.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND TWO FROM THE 23. AND HERE IS REGGIE BUSH. REGGIE BUSH WITH A STIFF ARM AND GOES OUT OF BOUNDS AT THE 40. AND PICKING UP 17 YARDS.>>Brian: I WANT YOU TO WATCH THE EYES OF REGGIE BUSH. WHAT DID I TELL YOU? THEY RUN A SIMPLE RUN SCHEME THERE. HE’S SIZING UP, WHERE DO I THINK THIS HOLE IS GOING TO BE? OBVIOUSLY THAT JUMP TO THE OUTSIDE AND THEN HE HAS THE STRENGTH AND THE SPEED TO OPEN UP A BIG EXPLOSION. WATCH THE TRANSITION TO THE SPEED AND THEN A LITTLE POWER WITH THE RIGHT ARM. HE HAS IT ALL.>>Dick: AND A FIRST DOWN AT THE LIONS 40. AND HERE’S REGGIE BUSH. AND REGGIE BUSH IS TACKLED FINALLY BY THE FIRST GUY WHO GOT A HAND ON HIM. JARIUS QUIN, ONE OF THOSE UN-HAROLDED GUYS ON THE DEFENSIVE LINE. LOSS OF SIX THIS TIME.>>Brian: JARIUS IS COMING IN FROM THE OUTSIDE. HE GETS THE TACKLE THERE. I DON’T KNOW IF HE GETS WRIT FOR THAT ONE, BUT THEN HE COMES BACK. MAYBE HE GETS 1 1/2 TACKLES FOR THAT ONE. I’M NOT GOING TO GIVE HIM TWO, BUT I’LL GIVE HIM ONE AND A HALF.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN, 16. AND THE HANDOFF IS TO THEO RIDDICK. AND RIDDICK BRINGS IT OUT TO THE 41 WHERE WE HAVE SEEN THE RIDDICK AS RUNNING BACK AND REGGIE BUSH, BUSY MAN, HAS TOUCHED THE BALL ON TEN OF THE 21 PLAYS THE LIONS HAVE RUN OFFENSIVELY. B AND HE’S ON PACE FOR A BETTER THAN 200 CARRIES AND 53 RECEPTIONS. IN A PERFECT WORLD, I THINK, FOR REGGIE BUSH, WE’D LIKE A FEW MORE RECEPTIONS, A FEW FEWER RUNS, BUT YOU’LL TAKE THEM ANY WAY YOU CAN GET THEM.>>Dick: CALVIN JOHNSON SPLITS THE BOTTOM OF YOUR PICTURE WITH BRANDON CARR. THIRD AND NINE. STAFFORD GOING FOR CALVIN JOHNSON. AND THE PASS OVERTHROWN. CARR DOING A GOOD JOB DOWNFIELD. CARR, THE NATIVE OF FLINT, MICHIGAN, IS FROM GRAND VALLEY STATE. AND THAT WILL BRING UP FOURTH DOWN AND THE LIONS WILL KICK.>>Brian: CARR DID AN EXCELLENT JOB OF THAT OF REROUTING CALVIN YAUNSON. WE’VE SEEN IT WHERE MATTHEW STAFFORD, ANYTIME DALLAS WANTS TO COME UP AND CHALLENGE THAT BOX, SHOW PRESSURE, BRINGT UP TO STOP THE RUN, HE’S GOING TO FIND THAT ONE-ON-ONE, TYPICALLY TO CALVIN JOHNSON. DID A NICE JOB ON THAT ONE.>>Dick: GOOD PUNT BY MARTIN. AND IT BOUNCES ON THE TWO AND GOES INTO THE END ZONE. BY THE WAY, EARLIER WE SAID THAT JEFF, HE’S FROM LAKE ORIENT, MICHIGAN. LET’S GET THAT RIGHT.>>Dick: TELLING HIM, THIS IS WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO TRY TO DO, THEY’RE GOING TO GRAB YOU AND HOLD YOU.>>Brian: OH, NEVER HEARD THAT.>>Dick: CAN’T DO EITHER. DROPPING IT IS RANDLE. FIRST FOUR POSSESSIONS OF THE COWBOYS AND THEY HAD IT PUNTED AWAY. ACROSS MIDFIELD, ONLY ONCE TODAY. AND ONLY GOT IT TO THE LIONS 42. SO THEY HAD AN OUT GAIN BY A HUGE MARGIN IN EVERY AREA, COACH.>>Brian: AND THE DETROIT LIONS ARE COMMITTING A LOT OF RESOURCES TO STUFF THE COWBOYS ON FIRST AND SECOND DOWN THAT LIMITS THEIR CHOICES ON THIRD DOWN.>>Dick: GOING BLITZ AND HERE THEY COME. AND CAUGHT THIS TIME BY RANDLE, AND RANDLE WAS OFF AND FINALLY TACKLED. BUT NOT BEFORE THE COWBOYS HAVE A FIRST DOWN, A 13-YARD GAIN AND STEVEN TULLOCH, THE MIDDLE LIKEBACKER, MADE THE TACKLE.>>Brian: YOU CAN SEE HERE, THE DB, DELMAS AND BENTLEY COMING IN, COMMITTING THE SECONDARY PEOPLE INTO STOPPING THE RUN. HOW DO YOU COUNTER THAT? THROW A SCREEN AND GET OUTSIDE.>>Dick: AVERAGING LESS THAN 2 1/2 YARDS PER RUSH ON THE COWBOYS, FIRST DOWN, HOLDING IT DOWN AFTER THE PASS. CONNECTING THIS TIME TO THE TIGHT END, JASON WITTEN. AND THERE IS OLD RELIABLE. AND WITTEN MOVES THE CHAINS. IT WILL BE ANOTHER FIRST DOWN FOR THE COWBOYS, PICKING UP 14.>>Brian: WELL, THE DEFENSIVE COACHES FOR DETROIT TOLD US THAT YOU’RE GOING TO FIND JASON WITTEN RIGHT HERE AND THRO TONY ROM WHETHER HE WAS THE PRIMARY OR NOT, WHEN TONY ROMO GETS FLUSHED OUT OF THE POCKET, LIKE HE DOES THERE, NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN HE’S GOING TO FIND JASON WITTEN.>>Dick: AN 11-YEAR VETERAN WITH THE CATCH. AND THE HANDOFF TO LANCE DUNBAR. DUNBAR CROSSES INTO MIDFIELD TERRITORY GETTING FIVE. AND COMING OFF THE FIELD, NICK FAIRLEY. AND A BIG INJURY HERE FOR THE LIONS DEFENSIVE FRONT, WHICH HAS DONE SO WELL SO FAR.>>Brian: HE’S HAD TWO HITS ON TONY ROMO. AND WE TALKED ABOUT THE MISMATCH OF NICK FAIRLEY SUH ON THE LINE FOR THE COWBOYS.>>Dick: DUNBAR STAYS IN THE GAME, SECOND AND FIVE. AND THE FLIP TO DUNBAR AND DUNBAR WILL GET THE FIRST DOWN AND A GOOD BLOCK THERE BY SMITH, THE LEFT TACKLE, AND A PICK UP OF SIX AND AT DLOOS DALLAS FIRST DOWN.>>Brian: THIS IS A GAME OF ACTION AND REACTION. YOU TALKED ABOUT THE DETROIT LIONS FOR THE SECONDARY PEOPLE TO STOP THE RUN. WA DO YOU DO? YOU GET OUTSIDE OF ALL THAT. WE’VE SEEN A SCREEN, WE’VE SEEN THAT QUICK PITCH THAT OBVIOUSLY THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR KNOWS HE HAS TO ADDRESS IT. HE HAS TO DO SOMETHING TO KEEP THE DETROIT LIONS SECONDARY OUT OF HIS BACKFIELD.>>Dick: THE RUSHING STORY BROUGHT DOWN ON THE 43 OF DETROIT. AND HERE IS THE END AROUND BY DEZ BRYANT. THE FIRST TIME HE’S TOUCHED THE BALL IN THIS GAME. AND DEZ BRYANT PICKS UP A COUPLE, THAT’S ALL. IF THAT MUCH ON THE END AROUND.>>Brian: WELL, HOW ABOUT WE GIVE HIM AN END AROUND? YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO FIND CREATIVE WAYS. THERE’S A LIST OF A HANDFUL OF PLAYS THAT IF ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU LOOK UP, YOU GET TO THE MIDDLE OF THE SECOND QUARTER AND HE HASN’T TOUCHED IT, YOU BETTER GO TO ONE OF THOSE PLAYS.>>Dick: LINING UP TO THE RIGHT, DEFENSIVE LINEMEN. ROMO LOOKING SOME SOMEWHERE AND FINALLY COMPLETES IT TO WITTEN, WHO IS STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS BY DARIUS AFTER A GAIN OF THREE. ANDúHú@ú@ú@úHúHú@úHú@ú■>>Dick: YOU HOPE BRIAN WATERS CAN COME BACK INTO THE GAME. KIND OF HARD TO SEE. HE SEEMS TO BE WALKING OFF OKAY. THIS WOULD BE A HUGE LOSS FOR THEM IF HE CAN’T COME BACK IN. WE TALKED ABOUT THE MISMATCH INSIDE. HE’S OVER HERE AT THE RIGHT GUARD. AND HE JUST GETS LOCKED UP ONE-ON-ONE WITH NDAMUKONG SUH. THAT LEFT LEG JUST BUCKLES ON HIM A LITTLE BIT. WE TALKED ABOUT THE MATCH ON THE INSIDE WITH ROOKIE TRAVIS FREDERICK. YOU CAN SEE IT RIGHT HERE. HOPEFULLY IT’S NOTHING SERIOUS. YOU TAKE BRIAN WATERS AND THEY BROUGHT HIM OUT OF RETIREMENT TO COME BACK. YOU WEAKEN THE INTERIOR OF THAT LINE AGAIN, WHICH WOULD BE PROBLEMATIC FOR DALLAS.>>Dick: BERNARDO, NUMBER 73, AND DEN BAR, THE RUNNING BACK, ON THIRD AND SECOND. HEAVILY MARKERED.>>Referee: NEUTRAL ZONE INFLATION, DEFENSE, NUMBER 90. FIVE-YARD PENALTY. STILL THIRD DOWN.>>Dick: SUH CALLED FOR THE NEUTRAL ZONE INFRACTION HERE.>>Brian: HERE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN, SOMETHING GETS HIM TO JUMP. WE TALKED EARLIER ABOUT TAKING A THIRD AND TWO TO A THIRD AND SEVEN AND HOW THAT DECREASES THE ODDS. WELL, THEY JUST TOOK A THIRD AND LONG FOR DALLAS THAT IS USUALLY TAT ABOUT 20 OR 30% AND MOVED IT INTO A THIRD AND TWO, WHICH IS NORMALLY ABOUT 70% CONVERSION RATE.>>Dick: SUCH A HUGE DIFFERENT THERE. PHILLIP TANNER, THE RECEIVER OUT OF THE BACKFIELD, IS IN THERE NOW. THIRD AND TWO FOR DALLAS. ON THE 35.>>Brian: RIGHT HERE. ROMO, FLUSHED FROM THE POCKET. IN TROUBLE. OFF BALANCE THROW. AND INCOMPLETE. TERRANCE WILLIAMS. WAS DEFENDED BY CHRIS HOUSTON, BUT THE LIONS WERE GETTING HIP OUT OF THE POCKET AND AN OFFBALANCE CROSS. DIDN’T HAVE MUCH ON IT.>>Brian: LIKE I SAID, ITS DRAW A TROP, RIGHT THERE. ANYTIME YOU GET FLUSHED ON A THIRD AND TWO TO THREE, THERE’S THAT CONTACT SECOND-GUESSING YOU DO AS A COACH, WHY DIDN’T WE TAKE A MORE DIRECT APPROACH? BUT YOU HAVE A NEW GUARD IN THERE. FLESH ROMO OUT OF THE POCKET. ALL WE HAD LEFT WAS THE TAKE THAT SHOT.>>Dick: MAKES SENSE TO ME. HERE IS DAN BAILEY WITH A 53-YARD ATTEMPT. HIS LONGEST FIELD GOAL OF THE YEAR, HE MATCHES IT. BAILEY WITH A 53-YARD FIELD GOAL AND JASON AND THE COWBOYS GET ON THE SCOREBOARD WITH >>Dick: CALVIN JOHNSON IS GETTING SET TO GO BACK TO WORK AS THE COWBOYS GET A FIELD GOAL AFTER THAT. THEIR OFFENSE HAS YET TO CLICK THE WAY THEY’RE KNOWN SO FAR.>>Brian: YEAH. AND PART OF IT HAS TO DO WITH THE AGGRESSIVE NATURE OF THE DETROIT DEFENSE. AND I DON’T KNOW THAT TONY ROMO IS NOT GOING TO HAVE TO KEEP MORE OF AN EYE ON THE OUTSIDE RECEIVERS FOR THE ONE-ON-ONE MATCHUPS THAT ARE BEING PRESENTED. BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT YET.>>Dick: DAN BAILEY WITH A 53 YARDER IS NOW THREE OR HOUR FROM 50 OR BEYOND. AND YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT MATTHEW SAFRD, LOOKING UP WITH SOME OF THE GREATS AND NEAR GREATS OF THE FEWEST GAINS TO 15,000 PASSING YARDS.>>Brian: THIS GUY HAS BEEN IMPRESSIVE ALL BUT IN HIS SHORT CAREER. AGAIN, AS I SAY, YOU FORGET JUST HOW YOUNG HE IS. BUT A LOT OF IT ALSO IS THAT HE’S THROWN A LOT OF BALLS. THEY HAD NO RUNNING GAME. THERE WERE A RECORD OF THROWS LAST YEAR WITH 7 OF 12.>>Dick: THIS IS A PASS FIRST OFFENSE. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT THAT. FIRST ON THE 20 AND THE HANDOFF TO BUSH. AND BUSH GETS A COUPLE OF YARDS. SO THE DETROIT LIONS, NO SURPRISE WITH SOME OF THE NAMES YOU’LL SEE IN THERE. OFFENSIVE LEADERS SO FAR. .MATTHEW STAFFORD, THOSE ARE HIS NUMBERS.>>Brian: A BUNCH OF THOSE THAT COMING ON THE SLANT THROW TO CALVIN JOHNSON.>>Dick: THEY STILL HAVE OUTRUSHED THE COWBOYS AND CALVIN JOHNSON WITH THE 87- YARD SPECTACULAR CATCH, SETTING UP HIS TOUCHDOWN FROM TWO YARDS OUT. SO HIS SECOND DOWN AND EIGHT AT THE 22. STAFFORD. UNABLE TO HOLD ON TO IT IS REGGIE BUSH. AND NOW IT WILL BE THIRD AND EIGHT.>>Brian: THAT WAS JUST A LITTLE QUICK END ROUTE BY REGGIE BUSH, OF LIKE WE SEE DALLAS TRY TO DO WITH DEZ BRYANT, GIVE HIM A CHANCE TO CATCH AND IT RUN. TRY TO MINIMIZE THE DREADED THIRD AND LONG, WHICH THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN NOW. AND YOU CAN SEE HERE, THE DROPPED PASSES OF THE DETROIT LIONS. YOU THROW THE BALL AS MUCH AS THEY DO, YOU CAN’T DROP PASSES LIKE THAT.>>Dick: THIRD DOWN AND THEY BRING OUT BUSCH AND JOIQUE BELL BECOMES THE TAILBACK. IN TO BLOCK FOR STAFFORD, AND THE PASS CAUGHT AND A FIRST DOWN FOR CALVIN JOHNSON. CARR WAS RIGHT THERE, BUT CALVIN JOHNSON HAS A KNACK, DOESN’T HE? GETS NINE FOR THE FIRST DOWN.>>Brian: YEAH. AND THESE GUYS, THIS ISN’T FAIR. BRANDON CARR IS GOING TO, WAIT A MINUTE, I’M ALL OVER THIS GUY. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE SAID. AT NO POINT CAN YOU LOOK AT CALVIN JOHNSON AND THE QUARTERBACK AND SAY NO, HE’S NOT OPEN. HE IS SO STRONG, SO POWERFUL, THE STRENGTH IN YOUR HANDS THAT IT TAKES TO PULL THAT DOWN AND MAINTAIN CONTROL THROUGH THE PROCESS, UNBELIEVABLE.>>Dick: HIS FOURTH 100-YARD GAIN OF THE SEASON. AND THE QUICK DO DURHAM. AND HIS FIRST CATCH OF THE YEAR. HE’S GOING TO LOSE A YARD THANKS TO MARIS CLAIBORNE. TIME FOR GAME BREAK. >>WE GO TO NEW ORLEANS WHERE DREW BREES IS GOING TO FIND HIS ROOKIE WIDE RECEIVER FROM OKLAHOMA. KENNY SPILLS. 69-YARD TOUCHDOWN AND NEW ORLEANS TAKES THE LEAD, 144-10 AT HOME. BACK TO YOU, DICK.>>Dick: PRETTY CLOSE, THOUGH, IN NEW ORLEANS.>>Brian: YEAH. PROBABLY CLOSER THAN PEOPLE THOUGHT. A LONG WAY TO GO.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND TEN FROM THE 31. STAFFORD BRINGS IT TO CALVIN JOHNSON AND HE IS BLOWN UP BY CARR AND INTO COWBOY TERRITORY AT THE 48 YARD LINE.>>Brian: THIS IS — I’M SORRY, THIS IS CLASSIC. WATCH THE SIDE ARM, KIND OF FAR BACK. HE KNEW HE COULDN’T GET ET OVER THE TOP. CALVIN JOHNSON, NICE ROLLING DEEP IN. LOOK AT THE SIDE ARM, MATTHEW STAFFORD LOVES TO DO THAT. GOES BACK TO HIS DAYS AT HIGHLAND PARK IN TEXAS WHERE YOU JUST FLING IT AROUND WHATEVER ANGLE I HAVE TO GET IT OUT, I CAN.>>Dick: THAT WAS HIS BLINDER.>>Brian: I’LL BET YOU HE WAS A REALLY GOOD PITCHER.>>Dick: FIRST DOWN. REGGIE BUSH BREAKS A COUPLE OF TACKLES. HOLDS ON TO THE BALL AND IS A FIRST DOWN ON REGGIE BUSH’S BEST RUN OF THE DAY. 16 YARDS. AND A FIRST DOWN TO THE 32.>>Brian: YEAH. AND YOU GET CALVIN JOHNSON DOWN THE FIELD. THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR SAYS I’M NOT GOING TO LET YOU DO THAT AGAIN. FINE. ROLL THE COVERAGE OF CALVIN JOHNSON. I’M GOING TO TURN REGGIE BUSH LOOSE ON A QUICK INSIDE HITTER. TURNS INTO A DEEP PLAY.>>Dick: AND A TIME-OUT ON THE FIELD. AND PLAYERS SHAKEN UP AND IT’S JEFF HEATH FROM LAKE ORIEN, MICHIGAN, IS SHAKEN UP.>>Brian: THIS NOVEMBER, DICK, SOME COPS ARE BORN, OTHERS ARE MADE. GET READY FOR THE NEXT EVOLUTION OF COPS DRAMA. DON’T MISS THE SHOW CRITICS ARE CALLING OBJECT SESSION WORTHY, ALMOST HUMAN, TWO-NIGHT SERIES PREPARED TO START NOVEMBER 17th ON FOX.>>Dick: YOU’VE CONVINCED ME.>>Brian: YOU COULD ACTUALLY DO A SERIES ON CALVIN JOHNSON AND CALL IT THE SAME THING, “ALMOST HUMAN.” THE GUY IS UNBELIEVABLE WHAT HE CAN DO WITH A BALL. THIS GUY IS A COMBINE IN HIS WORKOUT. THIS GUY WAS 6’5″ COMING OUT OF THE GEORGIA TECH. 42 INCH VERTICAL JUMP, OKAY? THAT’S UNBELIEVABLE FOR A MAN THIS SIZE. AND RAN A 4.3 FIVE ON HIS PRO DAY. THAT IS COMBINE. EVERYBODY SAYS, LET’S GO GET US A CALVIN JOHNSON. THERE’S NOT A LOT OF CATS LIKE THAT WALKING AROUND. THAT’S RARE, RARE TERRITORY TO BE ABLE TO PULL A GUY LIKE THAT.>>Dick: A CLASSY HUMAN BEING.>>Dick: SO NONDIVA. HE’S UP THERE WITH LARRY JOHNSON AND SOME OF THE GREAT AS JUST HAVING A PURE CLASS ACT.>>Dick: WE SAW JEFF HEATH ON THE SIDELINES. FIRST DOWN NOW ON THE 32 YARD LINE. AND HERE IS REGGIE BUSH, TRYING TO GO OUTSIDE. A LITTLE DEEP, A LITTLE JUKE AND A PENALTY FLAG IS DOWN. AFTER A FOUR-YARD GAIN LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE COMING BACK.>>Referee: ILLEGAL FORMATION, OFFENSE. TIGHT END WAS COVERED. FIVE-YARD PENALTY.>>Dick: LET’S GO DOWN TO LAURA.>>Laura: YOU’VE GOT TO KEEP TALKING ABOUT THE CLASS OF CALVIN JOHNSON. I TALKED TO THE BRONCOS WIDE RECEIVER DA MAYORUS THOMAS. HE’S ABOUT AS NONDIVA AS YOU CAN GET, AS WELL. I SAID DID YOU EVER GO THROUGH A DIVA PHASE? HE SAID NO, I WENT TO GEORGIA TECH. I GOT INTO THAT LOCKER ROOM. WHEN HE WAS YOUR STAR AND HE IS EVERYTHING BUT A DIVA, YOU CERTAINLY CAN’T BE. I TOLD CALVIN AND HE SMILED AND HE TOLD ME THAT TELLS ME I HAVE DONE SOMETHING RIGHT.>>Dick: HE’S DO THE DONE A LOT OF THINGS RIGHT. HERE IS THE SCREEN TO REGGIE BUSH. REGGIE BUSH WILL NOT GET AWAY FROM GARY QUIN AND WILL LOSE EIGHT YARDS IN THE PROCESS. BY THE WAY, JEFF HEATH IS BACK IN THE LINEUP AS STRONG SAFETY FOR THE COWBOYS. AND WE’RE DOWN TO OUR TWO-MINUTE WARNING. SO GOOD DEFENSIVE PLAY BY DALLAS. WHERE’S THE SHOOT-OUT?>>Dick: TWO-MAN WRECKING CREW OF CALVIN JOHNSON AND REGGIE BUSH. THE REST OF THE TEAM? WELL, SEE WHO EMERGES THERE. TWO-MINUTE WARNING, 1:58 TO GO. IT WILL BE SECOND DOWN AND 22. LIONS HAVE ALL THREE OF THIS HAVE THEIR TIME-OUTS REMAINING. STAFFORD AND HOLDING ON IS PETTIGREW, THE DYE TIGHT END, AND HE HAS A FIRST DOWN TO THE 26 GETTING 17.>>Brian: AGAIN, THAT’S ONE OF THOSE BIG RECEIVERS THAT DETROIT HAS. MATTHEW PUMPS, GIVES A SIDE ARM STRING AND PUTS UP A JUMP BALL. BRANDON PETTIGREW, ALL 6’6″ OF HIM TAKE IT OFF THE RIM.>>Dick: AND THE DALLAS COWBOYS CALL THEIR SECOND TIME-OUT, TWO TIME-OUTS FOR DALLAS. YOU KNOW, I LIKE THE WAY — IN THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME, WE JUST KNEW THAT WE WERE GOING TO HAVE A SHOOT-OUT, A HIGH SCORING GAME.>>Brian: NO, NO, I WENT AGGRESSIVELY DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. I SAID WE COULD HAVE THAT, BUT I SAID IT COULD BE A DEFENSIVE SHOOT-OUT.>>Dick: I’D LIKE TO SEE THE TAPE.>>Brian: BUT WA WE’RE GETTING IS GOOD, SOLID DEFENSE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL BUT WITH THE OCCASION BIG PLAY. RIGHT NOW, DETROIT IS DOING A NICE JOB INSIDE OF TWO MINUTES, PUTTING THEMSELVES IN POSITION FOR ANOTHER SCORE. I WAS FULLY COMMITTED TO BEING DOWN THE MIDDLE.>>Dick: FIRST DOWN AND FIVE. INTERCEPTED BY SEAN LEE. AND IT’S HIS SECOND INTERCEPTION OF THE GAME AND HIS 11th, THE MOST BY ANY LINEBACKER IN THE LEAGUE IN THE LAST THREE YEARS. A COSTLY PICK THERE BY STAFFORD.>>Brian: I TOLD YOU TWO THINGS, SEAN LEE JUST SHOWS UP AND WATCH THE INSIDE DEFENSOR ON THE SLANT. I TOLD YOU THE QUARTERBACK PLANT ROUTES BECAUSE THEY CAN’T BE FOR SURE WHERE THE UNDERNEATH COVERAGE IS. CLEARLY, MATTHEW STAFFORD WAS NOT THERE, HAD NO IDEA THAT SEAN LEE BUZZED UNDERNEATH THAT INSIDE ROUTE.>>Dick: SEAN LEE ALL OVER THIS THING. I GUARANTEE YOU THERE WAS SOMETHING BY THE DISTANCE OR THE SITUATION BECAUSE SEAN LEE RAN TO THAT SPOT LIKE HE KNEW IT WAS GOING BE THERE. 74 YARD RETURN AND THE SECOND MULTI INTERCEPTION GAME OF HIS CAREER. AND IT WILL BE FIRST AND GOAL AT THE 4. CAN YOU SAY CANDIDATE? FIRST AND GOAL AT THE FOUR. COWBOYS, LOOKING TO TAKE THE LEAD. AND HERE IS THE TANDOFF. TO JOSEPH RANDLE AND RANDLE, LOSING A YARD, GETTING DOWN TO THE FIVE.>>Brian: THIS IS WHERE THE DETROIT LIONS DEFENSE, AS YOU CAN SEE THERE, WE’RE NOT GOING TO LET YOU WIN THIS THING YET, WHICH MEANS TONY ROMO MAY HAVE TO FIND THAT ONE-ON-ONE COMBINATION. UP TO DEZ BRYANT. AGAIN, DOWN IN HERE, HE HAS THE ABILITY TO GO UP FOR THOSE JUMP BALLS. TO WORK ON AN INSIDE PLANT ROUTE. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO RUN IT IN THROUGH HERE.>>Dick: COWBOYS IN THE RED ZONE, OBVIOUSLY, FIRST TIME. THEY HAVEN’T DONE MUCH OFFENSIVELY UNTIL NOW. LET’S SEE IF THEY CAN SCORE OFF THE INTERCEPTION AND DEZ BRYANT COVERED BY DARIUS. AND IT WILL BE THIRD DOWN AND GOAL. SO THE INTERCEPTION AND A 74-YARD RETURN BY SEAN LEE, TRYING TO SET UP A DALLAS TOUCHDOWN TO TAKE THE LEAD WITH UNDER A MINUTE TO GO IN THE HALF.>>Brian: AND IF THEY GET DENIED HERE, YOU HAVE TO GIVE KUDOS TO KEVIN OWINGEL TREE WHO RAN DOWN SEAN LEE ON THAT INTERCEPTION. NEVER GIVING UP. OKAY. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? IT’S JUST A SCORE. NO, YOU STOP, GIVE YOUR DEFENSE A CHANCE. TWO GUYS WE WANT TO WATCH HERE, OBVIOUSLY. BRYANT, LOOKING BRYANT’S WAY AND BRYANT HAS IT. TOUCHDOWN.>>Dick: DEZ BRYANT CONTROLLING THE BALL BEAUTIFULLY. AFTER THE CATCH. AND THE DALLAS COWBOYS ON LEE’S INTERCEPTION, SETTING IT UP HAVE TAKEN A 9-7 LEAD.>>Brian: TALK ABOUT THE STRENGTH OF HANDS, YOU CAN SEE IT HERE OF CALVIN JOHNSON. I WANT YOU TO WATCH THE STRENGTH HERE. THE PLAY IS ALL OVER IT, BUT NOT ONLY WAS ABLE TO GRAB IT AND MAINTAIN IT, HE COMES DOWN AWKWARD. IT’S BOBBLING AROUND. GET RECONTROL OF IT BEFORE HE GETS OUT OF BOUNDS. AS HE GOES DOWN. THAT IS ONE STRONG MAN.>>Dick: COACH, THIS COULD BE ONE OF THE TOP TEN PLAY OWES FOX SPORTS 1 LATER ON. THAT’S A CANDIDATE.>>Brian: IT COULD BE.>>Dick: AND DAN BAILEY WITH THE EXTRA POINT. AND THE COWBOYS LEAD, 10-7. SO CALVIN JOHNSON AND DEZ BRYANT, EACH HAVE TOUCHDOWN PASSES IN THIS GAME.>>Brian: THE SCREEN, JUST FLAT FADE ROUTES. LOOKING FOR THE MATCHUPS. AND, AGAIN, DARIUS HAD HELP OVER THE TOP, AS WELL. AND IT DOESN’T MAKE A DIFFERENCE. YOU HAVE A GREAT PLAYER BY DEZ BRYANT, TWO BIG PLAYERS SHOWING UP AND THE INTELLIGENCE OF SEAN LEE BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME DOING THE RIGHT THING.>>Dick: 74-YARD RETURN AND HIS REACTION. AND THE SLAP OF THE HAND WITH DEZ BRYANT. SO THE INTERCEPTION PAID OFF AND THE COWBOYS CAPITALIZE ON MATTHEW STAFFORD’S SECOND INTERCEPTION OF THIS FIRST HALF. AND 10-7 WITH 46 SECONDS REMAINING IN THE HALF. JEREMY ROSS IS BACK DEEP. WHEN DEZ SAYS I CAN DO ANYTHING CALVIN JOHNSON CAN DO, WELL, OKAY, GIVE HIM SOME KUDOS THERE, ANYWAY.>>Brian: THAT’S RIGHT. DETROIT HAS TO BE CAREFUL HERE. THEY HAVE THREE TIME-OUTS. LET’S SEE WA KIND OF A TURN THEY GET. YOU’D LIKE TO PULL BACK SOME EMOTION GOING IN AT HALF, BUT YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL YOU DON’T PUT YOURSELF IN THE POSITION TO MAKE ANOTHER MISTAKE. YOU’VE GOT PLENTY OF TIME TO TRY TO GET A FIELD GOAL POSITION AT TIME-OUTS.>>Dick: THAT WAS THE FIVE-YARD TOUCHDOWN PASS. AND A LIONS WILL TAKE IT OUT ON THE 20-YARD LINE. SO YOU WANT TO SEE SOME OF THE GREAT CATCHES WE’VE SEEN AROUND THE LEAGUE, HOW ABOUT ANTONIO BROWN OF THE STEELERS? ONE-HANDED AGAINST THE BEARS, WEEK THREE. PATRIOTS, KIMBRELL TOMPKINS. AND CALVIN JOHNSON AGAINST THE BENGALS, SO THAT’S — THAT WAS WEEK ONE. AND THAT WAS THE TOUCHDOWN BY DEZ BRYANT. THAT WAS THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS IN WEEK ONE. AND THAT’S OUR NOMINEE. HERE’S CALVIN JOHNSON WITH A STIFF ARM. ON BRANDON CARR AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE LIONS GET JUST SHY OF MIDFIELD WITH 38 SECONDS TO GO AND THEY’LL CALL A TIME-OUT. IT’S THEIR FIRST. AND RIGHT NOW, LET’S GO TO CURT MENAFEE TO SEE WHAT’S COMING UP ON THE VISA HALFTIME REPORT.>>COMING UP ON THE VISA HALFTIME, A BIG BATTLE BETWEEN THE DOLPHINS AND IT IS PATRIOTS. ALSO THE CLEVELAND BROWNS VISIT THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS AND THE BUFFALO BILLS GO FOR A WIN IN THE BIG EAST. IT’S ALL COMING YOUR WAY ON THE VISA HALFTIME SHOW.>>Brian: NICE USE OF THE TIME-OUT BY THE DETROIT LIONS. I SEE SO OFTEN COACHES MAKE THE MISTAKE AFTER A BIG PLAY TRYING TO CONSERVE THE TIME-OUT. SO RUN DOWN AND KILL THE CLOCK OR TRY TO GET A PLAY RUNOFF. SO RUN DOWN. THAT’S A LOT OF TIME. USE ONE AND NOW YOU SAVE A LOT OF TIME. YOU’VE GOT TWO TIME-OUTS. NICE USE OF THE TIME-OUT.>>Dick: 38 SECONDS REMAINING IN THE HALF. TIPPED BALL AND INCOMPLETE. THE BALL WAS TIPPED DOWNFIELD. AND IT WILL BE SECOND DOWN AND TEN.>>Brian: LIONS ARE A GOOD 20 YARDS AWAY FROM A MAKABLE FIELD GOAL, MAYBE 15.>>Dick: THEY’VE HAD SOME GREAT FIELD GOAL KICKERS FOR THE LIONS OVER THE YEARS. SECOND DOWN AND TEN. STILL TWO TIME-OUTS REMAINING FOR DETROIT. PASS. AND IT LOOKED LIKE IT WENT THROUGH THE HANDS OF RYAN BROYLES. SO IT’S THIRD DOWN AND TEN.>>Brian: THAT BALL HAD SOME HEAT ON IT RIGHT HERE, COMING RIGHT OVER THE TOP. AND THE RECEIVER CAN’T SEE THE BALL COME OUT. IT’S JUST COMING OUT OF THE LINE. THAT THING WAS HIGH AND HOT. IT LOOKED LIKE BROYLES JUST WASN’T READY FOR IT, PROBABLY COULDN’T TRACK IT EARLY ENOUGH.>>Dick: THAT WOULD HAVE PUT THEM IN FIELD GOAL RANGE RIGHT THERE. NOW THEY HAVE TO PUT IT DOWN THE FIELD ON THIRD DOWN AND TEN. TIME-OUT SITUATION MAY BE MOVED IF THEY DON’T GET IT INTO GEAR. STAFFORD UNDER DEEP PRESSURE. THROWS IT AWAY. AND TRYING TO AVOID PRESSURE AND THE COWBOYS CLAIMING HE DID NOT GET OUT OF THE POCKET AND THERE SHOULD BE INTENTIONAL GROUNDING.>>Brian: YEAH. THAT’S EXACTLY IT. THEY’RE GOING TO GET IT. NO ONE IN THE AREA. HE WAS JUST TRYING TO GET RID OF IT, ALL OUT PRESSURE BY THE DALLAS COWBOYS, LOOKING FOR THE QUICK THROW. A DICEY CALL ON THIRD AND TEN. BUT YOU’RE BETTING ON THE QUICK THROW OR TO GET HOME AND HE HAD NO ONE TO COMPLETE IT TO. IT’S KIND OF NO HARM NO FOUL HERE, EVEN IF IT GETS BACKED UP. YOU’RE STILL GOING TO HAVE TO PUNT IT EITHER WAY.>>Dick: GEORGE SELVIE AND CHURCH FROM THE SECONDARY AND A LOSS OF 14.>>Brian: SO IT’S NO HARM, NO FOUL. GUTTY CALLS BY MONTE KIFFIN.>>Referee: INTENTIONAL GROUNDING, OFFENSE NUMBER 9. LOSS OF DOWN, FOURTH DOWN. DALLAS HAS DECLINED THE OPTION TO RUN.>>Dick: YOU SEE THE PRESSURE RIGHT IN HERE. THEY’RE BRINGING IT ALL AND THEY FALL OUT. RIGHT NOW, HE’S WITHIN THE POCKET. IF YOU’RE OUTSIDE THE POCKET, THE BALL HAS TO CLEAR THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. INSIDE THE POCKET, THERE HAS TO BE A VIABLE RECEIVER AND THERE WAS NO THERE.>>Dick: SO SAM MARTIN WILL KICK AND DWAYNE HARRIS IS BACK. COWBOYS STILL HAVE ONE TIME-OUT REMAINING. AND THEY WERE COMING IN AND TRYING TO BLOCK THAT ONE. HERE’S HARRIS ON THE RETURN. AND HE’S FLIPPED. AND FALLS AT THE 31. DEFENSE HAS KEPT THE COWBOYS IN THIS FIRST HALF.>>Brian: WE SAID IT WAS GOING TO BE AN OFFENSIVE EXPLOSION. WE JUST DIDN’T KNOW I TELL WAS GOING TO COME FROM THE DEFENDERS. IT’S SO TYPICAL IN THE NFL. TURNOVERS, THE NUMBER ONE TURNOVERS FOR SUCCESS IN THE GAME.>>Dick: TWO INTER SENGZS BY SEAN LEE. THE BIG ONE WAS A.4-YARD RETURN A LITTLE WHILE AGO, WHICH SET UP THE FIVE-YARD TOUCHDOWN PASS FROM ROMO TO DEZ BRYANT. SO THE COWBOYS WITH THE LEAD WITH 15 SECONDS REMAINING. AND THE COWBOYS WILL JUST TAKE A KNEE, RUN THE CLOCK OUT, AND THAT WILL DO IT. TRYING TO WIN THEIR THIRD IN A ROW FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR, COMING UP TO VISA HALFTIME REPORT. THAT’S WHEN WE HAVE LINED UP FOR YOU. THIS IS THE END OF THE FIRST HALF WITH THE SCORE, THE COWBOYS 10, LIONS 7.>>>. >>Brian: HERE’S MY ADJUSTMENTS FOR DALLAS. TAKE ADVANTAGE ON THE ONE-ON-ONE MATCHUPS. DETROIT, KEEP THE BALANCE YOU HAVE RUNNING. GO ON RUNNING. FOR BOTH OF THEM, THERE WILL BE A LOT OF EMOTIONAL PRESSURE IN THE SECOND HALF. DON’T GIVE INTO IT.>>Dick: WE’VE BEEN JOIQUING ABOUT THE SHOOT-OUT THING. THE QUESTION IS, WE KNOW WE HAVE TWO PROLIFIC OFFENSES, TWO GOOD QUARTERBACKS.>>THE OTHER GUYS GET PAID, TOO. BY THAT I MEAN THE DEFENSIVE GUYS, THE ETCH COS, THERE YOU SEE WHAT YOU DO WELL. WHAT’S THE CLASSIC THING? TAKE AWAY WHAT HE DO WELL. MINIMIZE CALVIN JOHNSON, MINIMIZE DEZ BRYANT. SO FAR, THEY HAVEN’T MADE A LOT OF THEM. THEY HAVE TO KEEP THAT BALANCE AND THE SECONDARY PLAYERS. THEY MAY HAVE TO SHOW UP BIG TIME IN ORDER TO GET THE WIN.>>Dick: THEY HAVE TO PLAY THE GAME. YOU CAN SEE WELL, I KNOW THIS IS A GAME WITH A LOT OF SCORING. MAYBE WE STILL WILL HAVE THAT. BUT IT’S 10-7 RIGHT NOW AS WE GET SET FOR THE SECOND HALF. THE COWBOYS WILL GET THE BALL FIRST. THEY WON THE TOSS AND DEFERRED. SO SAM MARTIN STARTS IT OFF AND DWAYNE HARRIS WILL WATCH THIS AND THE COWBOYS WILL START FROM THE 20 AS WE SEND IT DOWN TO LAURA.>>Laura: DICK, I SAID TO JARSON GARRETT, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED THIS ISN’T ANSWER OFFENSIVE SHOOT-OUT. ARE YOU? HE SAID NOT AT ALL. WE HAVE TO GET TONEMY MORE TIME, WE HAVE TO BLOCK BETTER UP FRONT. WE HAVE TO CONVERT THIRD DOWNS. DEFENSIVELY, WE HAVE TO KEEP DOING WHAT WE’RE DOING AND ADDING SEAN LEE AS A — FOOTBALL PLAYER. HE SAID WE’RE MOVING THE BALL. WE WANT TO KEEP DO YOU THINK DOING THAT AND NOT TURN IT OVER.>>Dick: THE COWBOYS WITH 29 YARDS RUSHING, 66 PASSING AND THEY’RE LEADING IN THE GAME AND THE SWING PASS TO JOSEPH RANDLE ON FIRST DOWN. GAUN OF ONE. AND GOOD NEWS FOR DALLAS. AND THAT IS BRIAN WATERS WHO IS OUT WITH A HYPER EXTENDED KNEE, THE 13-YEAR VETERAN WHO THEY HAD TO TALK OUT OF RETIREMENT IS BACK IN THERE. THERE’S THE FOCUS ON THE HALFTIME NUMBERS WHICH HEAVILY FAVOR THE LIONS, SCOREDBOARD FAVORS DALLAS.>>Brian: BUILD ON WHAT LAURA GOT SOME JASON WATERS, HE WILL BE A BIG PART OF SHOWING THAT PROTECTION IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS DEFENSE AGAINST THE DETROIT LIONS TO GIVE TONY ROMO MORE TIME TO THROW.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND NINE. ROMO, TIME TO THROW. AND THE TIME TO CATCH IS DEZ BRYANT. ONLY HIS SECOND CATCH OF THE GAME. THE FIRST ONE WAS A FIVE YARDER FOR A TOUCHDOWN. AND A GAIN OF 17.>>Brian: AND YOU’VE GOT TO WATCH UP HERE. DEZ BRYANT, THAT DEEP END ROUTE THAT HE AND CALVIN JOHNSON BOTH LIEKDZ, KIND OF SURPRISED DEZ BRYANT BECAUSE, BOY, THAT BALL WAS ON HIM QUICK. GOOD, STRONG HANDS PULLING IT DOWN.>>Dick: LAST WEEK, THE COWBOYS HAD A SEASON HIGH 12 PENALTIES AGAINST THE EAGLES. THEY HAVE YET TO COMMITTEE A PENALTY IN THIS ONE. FROM THE 38. FIRST DOWN FOR ROMO, WHO IS 10 OF 19. COMPLETED PASS TO RANDLE. UP TO THE 41 AND A GAIN OF THREE YARDS. LET’S COMPARE THE TWO GIANT WIDE RECEIVERS.>>Brian: WELL, YOU CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN TERMS OF THE IMPACT. NOW, AGAIN, WE SAW THE EARLIER GRAPH THAT SAID DEZ BRYANT USUALLY CATCHES MORE BALLS. HERE, CALVIN JOHNSON TARGETED TEN TIMES. OBVIOUSLY, A BIG PART OF THE PLAY OF THE 156 YARDS THAT CALVIN JOHNSON HAD. THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO GET DEZ BRYANT ROLLING YET.>>Dick: 156, THE MOST EVER BY CALVIN JOHNSON IN A FIRST HALF. SECOND AND SIX. ROMO GOING ON TOP OF DEZ BRYANT. COVERING HIM DOWNFIELD WAS RASHEAN MATHIS.>>Brian: OBVIOUSLY, AS I TOLD YOU EARLIER, THEY SAY THE SAFETY IS THE KEY. HE HAS A REAL YOUNG DB IN DARIUS DELAY, THEIR SECOND ROUND DRAFT CHOICE. AND HE HAS A MATURE IN MATHIS. DARIUS CLAY CAN BE REREALLY, HE’S JUST REALLY YOUNG. MATHIS, HE’S JUST REALLY OLD FOR A CB.>>Dick: SLAY CAME IN THIS WEEK EARLIER. NOW THIRD FOR SIX. ROMO GETS GOOD PRODUCTION. AND THE PASS IS INCOMPLETE. CHRIS HOUSTON WAS DEFENDING ON THE PLAY. AND THAT WILL BRING UP FOURTH DOWN AND THE COWBOYS WILL KICK.>>Brian: AGAIN, THAT WAS A DEEP END WE JUST SAW DEZ BRYANT. NICE COVERAGE BY HOUSTON TRAILING THAT DEEP END. OBVIOUSLY, DALLAS SEEING SOMETHING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD THEY’RE TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF. GOOD COVERAGE BY DETROIT LIONS AND CHRIS HOUSTON.>>Dick: RYAN BROYLES IS BACK. AND CHRIS JONES WILL KICK. VERY HIGH AND THE FAIR CATCH. AND THE COWBOYS TRYING TO KEEP IT IN PLAY, CANNOT DO IT. DUNBAR. AND A FLAG IS DOWN. BACK AT THE DALLAS 40.>>Referee: HOLDING. OFFENSE NUMBER 91. 10-YARD PENALTY. DALLAS KEEPS THE BALL. FIRST DOWN, TIME-OUT.>>Brian: SO IT’S A LONG SNAPPER. AND THERE’S THE TOUCHDOWN BY CALVIN JOHNSON. DEZ BRYANT CAUGHT ONE,FtFtFtvvvvvvvvtTTPPP>>Dick: RYAN BROYLES WAS SHAKEN UP. MICHAEL PURE LOCK WHO HAS BEEN THE KICK RETURNER FOR THE LIONS. SEVEN YARDS. LAST FOUR.>>Brian: HERE’S THE PROBLEM. THE ONLY REASON DALLAS IS IN THE GAME, QUITE FRANKLY, IS THE INTERCEPTION BY SEAN LEE.>>Dick: STAFFORD HAD ONLY FOUR INTERCEPTIONS. IN THE FIRST SEVEN GAMES, BUT TWO BY SEAN LEE IN THE FIRST HALF TODAY. ON SECOND AND THREE, STAFFORD PUMPED ONCE AND THIS ONE IS CAUGHT. AND A GOOD CATCH BY DURHAM. AND DURHAM WITH THE EIGHT-YARD GAME. TIME FOR THE GAME BREAK. HERE IS JOEL.>>THANKS, DICK. QUICK TURN OF EVENTS IN NEW ENGLAND. BRADY THREW A TOUCHDOWN PASS. TANNEHILL TUMBLED. AND BRANDON BOLDEN SCORES AND NEW ENGLAND HAS TIED THE GAME AT 17. BACK TO DETROIT. DICK.>>Dick: YOU WERE RIGHT, IT WAS TOO EARLY.>>Brian: YOU ARE SO LUCKY. YOU ARE TO LUCKY.>>Dick: AND NOBODY KNOWS WHY.>>Dick: FIRST DOWN, AND REGGIE BUSH PICKS UP SOME GOOD YARDS THE LIONS ARE RUNNING HARD TODAY. THEY MAKE THE MOST OF THEIR CHANCES.>>Brian: AND THEY STAY COMMITTED TO IT. I MADE ONE OF MY POINTS COMING BACK AT THE HALF. IT’S TO KEY TA BALANCE THAT THEY HAVE SO FAR. AND THAT’S SO KEY FOR AN OFFENSIVE KWORDZ NATER. EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE NOT GETTING THE BIG YARDAGE, AND YOU’RE NOT RUNNING IT 30 OR 40 TIMES ON THE SCOTT, THEY’RE DOING JUST THAT, TRYING TO KEEP THAT BALANCE. BECAUSE IT LEADS TO THE BIG PLAY ACTION FAKES HE THROWS DOWN THE FIELD.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND SIX. STAFFORD. AND THE LIONS GET INTO COWBOYS TERRITORY. THE PASS IS COMPLETE TO JEREMY ROSS. AND ANOTHER FIRST DOWN. SO STAFFORD, 14 FOR 24. 200 YARDS IN THIS GAME.>>Brian: WE’RE IN THAT TERRITORY WHERE YOU KIND OF LIKE TO TAKE A SHOT DOWN THE FIELD. YOU’RE LOOKING FOR THAT BIG SHOT. I WANT YOU TO WATCH THESE TWO TIGHT ENDS, PETTIGREW WHEN THEY PUT IN JOE >>Dick: THEY RUN IT TO BUSH AND BUSH COMES OUTSIDE, LOSES THE BALL AND THE COWBOYS HAVE RECOVERED THE FUMBLE. DALLAS GETS IT BACK AFTER A BRILLIANT CHANGE OF DIRECTION BY REGGIE BUSH. HE COUGHS IT UP AND THE COWBOYS GET IT. THAT IS THE THIRD TURNOVER COMMITTED BY THE LIONS AND THE FUMBLE RECOVERY BY JUSTIN>>>CLASSIC FUNDAMENTALS. YOU CAN SEE REGGIE BUSH. HE’S GOING TO THE OUTSIDE. SWITCH IT OVER. GREAT JOB BY JEFF HEATH. YOU’VE GOT TO SECURE THE BALL. HE HAD IT OUT, WAY TOO MUCH. WHAT A GREAT PLAY BY REGGIE BUSH. BUT WHEN YOU TRANSFER IT OVER, HE’S DOING THE RIGHT THING, PUT IT ON THE OUTSIDE ARM AWAY FROM THE DEFENSOR. BUT YOU’VE GOT SECURE IT.>>FROM THE 32, DUNBAR IN AS RUNNING BACK. OFF THE RIGHT TACKLE. DEANDRE LEVY MAKING THE TACKLE AFTER A FIVE-YARD GAIN ON FIRST DOWN. JEFF HEATH. HE ONCE KICKED A GAME WINNING FIELD GOAL IN THE STAIM STATE SEMIFINALS FOR LAKE ORIENT, MICHIGAN. COMING BACK HERE TO FORCE THE FUMBLE AND GIVING THE COWBOY TESS BALL. THEY NOW HAVE A SECOND DOWN AND FIVE ON THE 37. SHORT OF THE FIRST DOWN BY 2 1/2 YARDS WITH THIRD DOWN COMING UP.>>Brian: AGAIN, DETROIT KEEPS COMMITTING THEIR SECONDARY INTO STOPPING THE RUN. NICE JOB THERE. HERE IS THE THIRD AND TWO YARDS. AGAIN, COWBOYS ARE 2 OF 8 ON THIRD DOWN. THEY’VE BEEN CAUGHT SHORT AND HEATED DOWN THE FIELD. ON THIS SHIELD, IT’S SHIRRED DOWN.>>Dick: DO THEY RISK THE RUN HERE, THIRD AND TWO? JASON WITTEN IS IN MOTION. TO THE LEFT AND THEY FLIP IT TO DUNBAR. AND DUNBAR WILL GET THE FIRST DOWN. SO LANCE DUNBAR, SMITH WITH A GOOD MROOK AND LEFT TACKLE. THAT’S THE SECOND ONE HE’S HAD AND SHAKEN UP ONCE AGAIN IS NICK FAIRLEY. SECOND TIME HE HAS BEEN INJURED IN THIS GAME. AND WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A TIME-OUT. HERE IS THE FIRST DOWN>>Dick: FAIRLEY GETTING HIS HELMET BACK ON. LEADS US TO BELIEVE IT WON’T BE LONG BEFORE HE GETS BACK INTO THE LINEUP. REPLACED BY AN DAY FLUELLEN. HERE IS THE END AROUND PLAY TO TERRANCE WILLIAMS. AND WILLIAMS WITH DEANDRE LEVY MAKING THE TACKLE. A GAIN OF FIVE.>>Brian: NICE JOB BY TYRON SMITH. HE’S DOING A NICE JOB. WE TALKED ABOUT THE PRESSURE DETROIT CAN BRING ON THE INSIDE. ALL THE PRESSURE THEY HAVE TO BRING ON THE INSIDE BECAUSE OF SUH AND FAIRLEY. THAT LEADS TO TACKLES ONE-ON-ONE. SO FAR, TYRON SMITH IS DOING A GREAT JOB WITH THE TACKLES ONE-ON-ONE. SO FAR, MARINELLI IS GETTING AFTER HIS TROOPS.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND FIVE, JUST SHY OF MIDFIELD. GETTING CHASED AND THIS IS INCOMPLETE. WILL COMES COVERED BY HOUSTON.>>Brian: I WANT TO TALK ABOUT MARINELLI. HE’S SAYING I THINK WE ALL NEED TO PLAY BETTER. I CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT HE’S ACTUALLY SAYING BECAUSE I’D GET THROWN OFF THE AIR. BUT HE’S TELLING THIS YOUNG LINE, OKAY, DON’T BUY INTO THAT NO-NAME DEFENSE. WE HAVE GOT TO PLAY BETTER AND PUT PRESSURE ON MATTHEW STAFFORD. IT’S ONE OF THE BEST DEFENSIVE LINE COACHES IN THE GAME, ROD MARINELLI. FORMER HEAD COACH OF THE DETROIT LIONS FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. YOU KNOW THIS MEANS SOMETHING TO HIM. THIRD DOWN AND FIVE. CROWD INTO IT NOW.>>ROMO, INCOMPLETE TRYING TO GET IT TO HARRIS. IT’S INCOMPLETE AND IT IS FOURTH DOWN. WATCH 30 MINUTES OF LIVE NFL GAMES FREE NOW THROUGH OCTOBER 29th. CALL NFL TO DOWNLOAD NOW. A GOOD REPLAY OF THE PRESSURE IN THIS GAME. NO SACKS. RYAN BROYLES SHAKEN UP ON THE LAST KICK. FAIR CATCH FOR ROSS AT THE 13. 10-7, WHO EXPECTED THIS? MATTHEW STAFFORD WI DDZ THE LIONS WILL START ON THEIR OWN 13. THEY’VE COMMITTED THREE TURNOVERS TODAY AFTER ONLY ONE IN THE PREVIOUS THREE GAMES. SEAN LEE HAS BEEN THE CULPRIT. LEE WITH TWO INTERCEPTIONS. JEFF HEATH FORCING A FUMBLE. JOIQUE BELL TO THE LEFT OF MATTHEW STAFFORD. FIRST DOWN, PRESSURE COMING IN. AND THE PASS IS COMPLETE TO BELL. AND THE RUNNING BACK, BELL, AND YOU CAN SEE THE COWBOYS TRYING TO KNOCK THE BALL OUT. IT WAS HEATH TO TRIED TO PUNCH IT OUT OF HIS HANDS. BUT 22 YARDS WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE.>>Brian: NICE PLAY DESIGNED BY SCOTT LANAHAN, THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR. WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE IS REGGIE BUSH RUNNING ACROSS UNDERNEATH. IT PULLED ALL THE UNDERNEATH COVERAGE AND SNUCK JOIQUE BELL OUT TO THE OUTSIDE. GOT A BIG OFFENSIVE LINE OUT IN FRONT OF HIM. EXCELLENT PLAY DESIGN BY SCOTT LENIHAN, THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR.>>Dick: SO A FIRST DOWN FOR THE LIONS UP TO 35. REGGIE BUSH. REGGIE BUSH. GOOD RUN BY BUSH. GETS 9 1/2 YARDS. GAME BREAK, CURT MENAFEE, TAKE IT AWAY, CURT.>>PEOPLE WERE WONDERING IF JIMMY GRAHAM WOULD BE ABLE TO PLAY TOGETHER. THAT’S HIS SECOND SCORE THIS AFTERNOON. 13 YARDS ON THAT ONE. 28-10 OVER BUFFALO IN THE THIRD.>>Dick: TOUGH TO WIN IN NEW ORLEANS.>>Brian: YEAH. IT TOOK A LITTLE TIME, BUT YOU KNOW GOING IN THERE. THAT’S THE THING I’M WADING TO SEE, CAN YOU GO ON THE ROAD AND WIN IN THIS LEAGUE? THAT WILL TELL US WHO THE PLAYOFF RES.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND ONE ON PLAY ACTION. FOR STAFFORD. AND STAFFORD GETTING AWAY. AND WILL FLY SHY OF THE 50 YARD LINE. AND WILL GET THE FIRST DOWN FOR DETROIT. GOOD PRESSURE PUT ON BY JARIUS WYNN, BUT STAFFORD GETS ENOUGH FOR THE FIRST DOWN FOR THE LIONS.>>Brian: KIND OF DODGED A BULLET THERE, JUST WHEN STAFFORD WAS READY TO THROW, JUST PULLED HIS HAND BACK IN JUST ENOUGH TO AVOID WYNN STRIPPING IT. THE COWBOYS TALKED ABOUT THE DIFFICULT OF GETTING THE BALL OUT SO QUICKLY. WHEN HE DOES HOLD IT, THEY NEED TO GET HOME. NICE JOB BY STAFFORD MAKING SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING.>>Dick: EASIER SAID THAN DO.>>Brian: EVIDENTLY NOT.>>Dick: FIRST DOWN AT THE 47. HERE’S REGGIE BUSH AND STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS. BY MARVIN AUSTIN, WHO IS JUST — AFTER BEING RELEASED BY THE GIANTS, DRAFTED IN THE SECOND ROUND BY THEM.>>Brian: AGAIN, THIS DEFENSIVE LINE, THEY KEEP ROLLING IT THROUGH. I ASKED SEAN LEE, CAN YOU EVEN NAME THE GUYS ON YOUR DEFENSIVE LINE? YOU’VE GOT SOME GUYS THAT HAVE ONLY BEEN THERE A WEEK OR SO.>>Dick: THEY JUST PLUG THEM IN, DON’T THEY? SECOND DOWN AND NINE. LIONS ON THEIR ONLY 48. STAFFORD, AND IT’S CAUGHT BY CALVIN JOHNSON. LOSES THE BALL AND IT’S PICKED UP BY THE COWBOYS. THAT IS BRANDON CARR. BRANDON CARR WON’T GO DOWN. A 21-YARD RETURN AND A PENALTY FLAG. SO MATTHEW STAFFORD COMPLETES THE PASS TO MEGATRON WHO COUGHS IT UP AND THE FOURTH TURNOVER OF THE GAME COMMITTED BY THE LIONS. THAT WILL BE A FUMBLE.>>Brian: YOU CAN SEE HIM AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME CALVIN JOHNSON HAS HIS HANDS ON A PRETTY BIG PLAY.>>Referee: AFTER THE PLAY WAS OVER, PERSONAL FOUL. UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS. PASSING TEAM NUMBER 80. 15-YARD PENALTY FROM THE END OF THE RUN. DALLAS KEEPS THE BALL, FIRST DOWN.>>Brian: AGAIN, WE SAW SEAN LEE, MR. EVERYWHERE, PART OF BREAKING THAT BALL UP. CARR CATCHING THE BALL. MATTHEW STAFFORD SAYING, WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO? I GET THE BALL THERE. NO ONE IS MORE FRUSTRATED WITH IT THAN CALVIN JOHNSON. HE KNOWS NOT BEING ABLE TO SECURE THE BALL HAS LEFT HIS TEAM VULNERABLE.>>Dick: SUBMITTED A PENALTY. IT WAS CHURCH WHO JAWED ILLUSTRATE LOOSE AND THE LIONS FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS SEASON HAVE COMMITTED AS MANY AS FOUR TURNOVERS AND GIVING THE COWBOYS THE GREAT OPPORTUNITY HERE, A FIRST DOWN ON THE DETROIT 35. TERRANCE WILLIAMS IN MOTION. JOSEPH RANDLE. TOP FOR NO GAIN.>>Brian: DETROIT CONTINUES TO MISS SECOND LEVEL DEFENDERS, BEING THE LINEBACKER IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE SAFETY AS STOPPING THE RUN OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS ON FIRST DOWNS. COWBOYS MAY HAVE TO TAKE MORE SHOTS ONE-ON-ONE ON THE OUTSIDE. COMMITTED TO NOT LET THE RUNNING GAME GET CRANKED UP.>>Dick: WHO HAS THE EDGE IN RUSHING PASSING OVERALL, YOU WOULD THINK THE LIONS WOULD BE UP BIG. FOUR TURNOVERS HAVE SHORT CIRCUITED THEM. SECOND DOWN AND TEN. AND CROSSING PATTERN TO BRYANT INCOMPLETE AND LEWIS OVERRAN THE POSSIBILITY OF INTERCEPTION.>>Brian: THAT’S WHAT YOU WERE SAYING. WE’VE SEEN TWO BALLS BOBBLED, OFFERED UP FOR TURNOVERS BY THE DETROIT LIONS. DELMAS, IF HE HAD JUST BEEN INSIDE A LITTLE BIT MORE, HE, TOO, WOULD HAVE HAD A TIP UP AN INTERCEPTION, AND POSSIBLY PICK SIX.>>Dick: A 52-YARD FIELD GOAL IF THE COWBOYS DON’T GET ANY YARDS HERE. THIS PASS INTENDED FOR HARRIS DOWNFIELD. AND A GOOD DEFENSE BY KERRY. AND THAT WILL BRING UP FOURTH DOWN.>>Brian: TAKE CANSES WITH ONE-ON-ONE COVERAGE. THAT’S A TESTIMONY TO GUNTHER CUNNINGHAM’S FAITH IN HIS SECONDARY MATCHING UP WITH THE VERY TALENTED SKILL POSITION OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS.>>Dick: SO DAN BAILEY WILL COME IN TO TRY TO FIELD GOAL FROM 53 YARDS. DAN BAILEY, WHO CONNECTED FROM 53 YARDS EARLIER IN THE GAME. AND THIS KICK IS GOOD. HIS SECOND OF THE GAME. MATCHING HIS CAREER HIGH, HE HAD A 53-YARDER EARLIER IN THE GAME AND OFF THE TURNOVER, THE COWBOYS GET THREE>>Dick: 13-7, THE COWBOYS LEAD. COACH, WHEN YOU LOOK AT BRYANT WITH ONLY TWO RECEPTIONS, THEY’RE AVERAGING 2 1/2 YARDS PER RUSH AND THE LONG EFT PASS PLAY IS 17 YARDS, GET THEIR LEADING THE TURNOVER STORY. BIG.>>Brian: WELL, WHAT DO THEY SAY IN REAL ESTATE? LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. FOOTBALL, TURNOVERS, TURNOVERS, TURNOVERS.>>Dick: JEREMY ROSS, THE RETURN THIS FROM SEVEN YARDS IN THE END ZONE. BRUSHES OFF A DEFENDER AND THEN THE KICKER, DAN BAILEY IS THERE AND A TERRIFIC RETURN. 44 YARDS BY JEREMY ROSS.>>Brian: DICK, WE TALKED ABOUT THE CLASS OF CALVIN JOHNSON. RIGHT NOW, DEZ BRYANT IS UPSET ABOUT SOMETHING. AND THIS IS THE — THIS IS THE POINT THAT DEZ BRYANT HAS TO UNDERSTAND. THIS SERVES NO PURPOSE. IF I’M THE COACH OF THE COWBOYS, YOU HAVE TO GET THIS UNDER CONTROL BECAUSE THIS TEMPER TANTRUM — I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO CALL IT — SERVES NO PURPOSE. DEZ BRYANT, IF YOU WANT TO HELP YOUR TEAM, GROW UP.>>Dick: WADE WILKINS WON’T EVEN LOOK HIM IN THE EYE. AFTER THE STRONG KICKOFF RETURN SWINGS PAST FOR REGGIE BUSH. REGGIE BUSH AFTER THE THREE-YARD GAIN. HERE ARE THE TURNOVERS, LOOMING LARGE IN THIS GAME.>>Brian: AND THEY’RE THE KIND OF TURNOVERS WHERE NOBODY WANTS TO TURN THE BALL OVER LIKE THIS. IT’S FUMBLED. THAT ONE IS JUST FLAT. MATTHEW STAFFORD HAS NO IDEA SEAN LEE WAS THERE. REGGIE BUSH, YOU HAVE TO BE SMARTER WITH YOUR FUNDAMENTALS. NOBODY WANTS TO TURN THE BALL OVER. SAME WITH CALVIN JOHNSON IS HERE. IT’S ONE OF THE TOUGH THINGS AS A COACH. GUYS, WE CAN’T TURN THE BALL OVER. THE PLAYERS LOOK AT YOU LIKE, OKAY, COACH, WE DIDN’T REALIZE THAT.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND SEVEN. BY THE WAY, THE 74-YARD INTERCEPTION RETURN BY SEAN LEE WAS THE LONGEST BY A COWBOY LINEBACKER SINCE, YOU ALL REMEMBER, THOMAS HOLLYWOOD HINDERSON WHO RETURNED ONE 77 YARDS AGAINST THE BUCCANEERS BACK IN 1977.>>Brian: AND YOU BROUGHT IT UP, DICK. I’M LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS HERE, I SEE 349 TOTAL YARDS BY THE LIONS. YOU’RE THINKING, THIS THING SHOULD BE THE ROUTE. THE OFFENSIVE EXPLOSION WE THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO GET. THE TURNOVERS IN DALLAS, BEING OPPORTUNISTIC, AT A TAKING ADVANTAGE OF IT.>>Dick: TIGHT FORMATION HERE FOR DETROIT. FIRST DOWN, GOING UP THE MIDDLE. IT’S DURHAM. KRIS DURHAM, TAKING THE PLACE OF NATE BURLSON, WHO HAD THE FRACTURED FOREARM AND HOPES TO GET BACK AFTER THE BYE WEEK AGAINST THE CHICAGO BEARS.>>Brian: AND MATTHEW STAFFORD AND JEFF DURHAM HAVE A HISTORY TOGETHER, BOTH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA. THAT’S WHAT KIND OF ALLOWED DURHAM TO HANG AROUND, HANG AROUND THAT COMFORT ZONE AND HAS BEEN A BIG CONTRIBUTION TO THIS AFTER LOSING NATE BURLSON.>>Dick: KEVIN OGLETREE SLIPS TO THE TOP OF YOUR PICTURE, A FIRST DOWN ON THE 49. HERE’S BELL. AND BELL GETS TO THE 48 OF DALLAS. SEAN LEE ON THE TACKLE. AND HE PICKED UP FOUR. WELL, YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE FOUR TURNOVERS, TEAMS SINCE 2011 ARE 1-54 WHEN THEY HAVE TURNED IT OVER FOUR TIMES OR MINUS FOUR TURNOVER MARGINS SINCE 2011. COWBOYS HAVEN’T TURNED IT OVER TODAY. SECOND AND SIX. STAFFORD. STAFFORD COMPLETES. AND CALVIN JOHNSON WITH ANOTHER FIRST DOWN AND THAT WILL BE THE LAST PLAY OF THE THIRD QUARTER. A GAIN OF 24 AND THE COWBOYS ARE UP. WE’LL CONTINUE AFTER A BREAK FROM YOUR LOCAL FOX STATION.>>Dick: BOY, I’LL TELL YOU WHAT, THESE GUYS EITHER HAVE TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS OR THEY ARE REALLY BIG DETROIT LIONS FANS.>>Brian: THAT OR THEY LOVE TO PLAY.>>Dick: I THINK ALL OF THIS MAINE TRUE. WE START THE FOURTH QUARTER. 13-7, THE COWBOYS LEAD THE LIONS. IT WILL BE A FIRST DOWN FOR MATTHEW STAFFORD AND THE LIONS ON THEIR 29 OR ON THE COWBOYS 29. AND A TIME-OUT CALLED BY DALLAS COWBOYS USING A SECOND HAND TIME-OUT, AS WE START THE FOURTH QUARTER. THERE YOU SEE THE LAST SIX POSSESSIONS FOR THE LIONS. FOUR TURNOVERS AND TWO PUNTS.>>Brian: NO DOUBT, THE DEFENSE WAS A MAN SHORT. THEY ONLY HAD TEN GUYS ON THE FIELD. TO GO UP AGAINST MATTHEW STAFFORD WITH ONLY TEN GUYS.>>Dick: STAFFORD AND ROMO, COMPARE THEM TODAY.>>Brian: THESE TWO QUARTERBACKS, I’LL TELL YOU WHAT, LIKE I SAID, WHEN THEY’RE GOOD, THEY CAN BE VERY GOOD. THE INTERCEPTIONS, BOTH THESE INTERCEPTIONS, THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME. ONE OF THEM, MATTHEW STAFFORD, HE JUST DIDN’T SEE SEA LEE. THE OTHER ONE WAS A FUMBLE BECAUSE IT KIND OF GOT BOUNCED UP IN THE AIR.>>Dick: TONY ROMO WON LAST WEEK WITH TWO INTERCEPTIONS AND ONLY ONE TOUCHDOWN AGAINST THE EAGLES. A SUPERB DEFENSIVE EFFORT. AND LET’S MOTT MINUTE MOOIM MIZE THAT FOR THE COWBOYS, GIVING UP 19 POINTS TO TWO DIVISIONAL FOES THE LAST TWO WEEKS. ONLY SEVEN SO FAR TODAY. FIST DOWN FROM THE 29. CALVIN JOHNSON REACHES OUT AND MAKES THE CATCH. BOY, TALK ABOUT TENSIONS. A GAIN OF 26 FOR BRANDON CARR TRYING TO DEFEND.>>Brian: YOU CAN SEE AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN, OBVIOUSLY, A FANTASTIC CATCH. ONLY TWO BE PROCEEDED BY WHAT AN INCREDIBLE THROW. MATTHEW STAFFORD COULD PUT THAT ONLY ONE PLACE, OVER THE TOP OF BRANDON CARR, AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHERE HE PUT IT.>>Dick: 221 YARDS, THE FIFTH 200-YARD GAME OF CALVIN JOHNSON’S CAREER. AND HERE IS REGGIE BUSH. AND HE’LL LOSE YARDAGE, BACK TO THE 11 YARD LINE. AND A SUPERB PLAY BY BARRY CHURCH, THE FREE SAFETY. AND A LOSS OF SEVEN.>>Brian: LOOK AT THIS. JUST — COULD HE PUT I ANY 340R SHALLOW? BRANDON CARR MIGHT HAVE BEEN UNDERNEATH IT. THERE YOU TALK ABOUT BRINGING INTO SHARP FOCUS THE SIZE, THE SPEED, THE LEAPING ABILITY. I DON’T HAVE — YOU KNOW, I CAN’T DO THE MATH, BUT YOU FIGURE 42 INCH VERTICAL JUMP ON 6’5″, THAT’S A BIG SWEEPING SPOT. NINE CATCHES FOR 221 YARDS.>>Dick: AND HIS CAREER HIGH IS 244 YARDS. SO HE’S NOT FAR FROM THAT.>>Brian: NO. HE’LL GET THERE.>>Dick: LOOKING FOR A RECEIVER, GOES UNDERNEATH AND THE PASS IS CAUGHT BY PETTIGREW. DOWN TO ABOUT THE 1. SEAN LEE, DEFENDING ON THE PLAY. A GAIN OF EIGHT. SO IT WILL BE THIRD AND GOAL FOR THE LIONS. REMEMBER, THEY WENT FOR IT EARLY IN THE GAME ON FOURTH AND GOAL AND SCORED A TOUCHDOWN. DOWN BY SIX.>>Brian: YOU CAN SEE IT WILL BE AN INTERESTING CALL HERE, IF THEY SPREAD THIS OUT. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO. YOU MIGHT THINK ABOUT A QUARTERBACK DRAW HERE. YES, THEY’VE MOVED HIM OUT OF THE BACKFIELD. THIS MIGHT BE A HECK OF A PLACE FOR A QUARTERBACK DRAW.>>Dick: THE PASS. AND THEY HAVE JOHNSON AND JEREMY ROSS IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD. AND ROSS WAS THE INTENDED RECEIVER. SO IT’S FOURTH AND GOAL.>>Brian: SOMEBODY IS WRONG HERE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. JEREMY ROSS JUST BRINGING THIS FLAT ROUTE OUT UNDERNEATH. CALVIN JOHNSON. EITHER JOHNSON WASN’T DEEP ENOUGH OR ROSS HERE IN THE LOT SLOT WASN’T SUPPOSED TO GO TO THE OUTSIDE.>>Dick: SO DAVID AKERS ON THE DRIVE, A 20-YARD FIELD GOAL. AKERS, 11 OF 14 FOR THE YEAR AND THE KICK IS GOOD. AND SO EARLY HERE IN THE FOURTH, A BIG CATCH BY CALVIN JOHNSON, SETTING UP A FIELD GOAL AND THEú@úHú>>Dick: AND WELCOME BACK TO FORD FIELD IN DETROIT. WE WANT TO REMIND YOU, WE’D LIKE TO WELCOME THE MEN AND WOMEN SERVING AROUND THE WORLD WATCHING TODAY’S BROADCAST. THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO. WE HOPE YOU’RE ENJOYING TODAY’S TELECAST. AND WE CAN’T SAY ENOUGH AND DO ENOUGH FOR OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN.>>Brian: ABSOLUTELY. ANY CHANCE YOU GET A CHANCE ON EXPRESSED THAT GRATITUDE, DO IT.>>Dick: IN AN AIRPORT.>>Brian: PAY IT FORWARD, RIGHT? YOU GOT ONE BEHIND YOU, PAY HIS MEALS.>>Dick: WE ARE ON FLIGHTS, A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR THE SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN ON BOARD. HARRIS ON THE RETURN FOR THE COWBOYS. TOUGH TO BRING DOWN. BREAKS AWAY. AND A SUPERB RETURN BY DWAYNE HARRIS, OF 33 YARDS TO THE 28.>>Brian: JUST KEEPING THE PLAY ALIVE. REMEMBER, IT WAS DWAYNE HARRIS. WE TALKED ABOUT THE NUMBERS THAT TONY ROMO HAD LAST WEEK IN THE GAME AGAINST PHILADELPHIA. DESO MUCH ON SPECIAL TEAMS, RETURN FOR A TOUCHDOWN, SETTING UP ANOTHER SCORE, DIDN’T HAVE TO DO AS MUCH OFFENSIVELY.>>Dick: AND NOW HE REMAINS IN THE LINEUP AS A WIDE RECEIVER. SO YOU’VE GOT TO THINK HE’S PRETTY DURABLE. THE PASSING YARDS, FOLKS, 311 TO 88 IN FAVOR OF DETROIT AT THIS POINT.>>Brian: WELL, DETROIT KEEPS COMMITTING TO STOPPING THE RUN ON FIRST DOWN, ALTHOUGH THE LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE IN COVERAGE HERE. THEN THEY THINK THE COWBOYS ARE GETTING READY TO PUT IT UP.>>Dick: JOSEPH RANDLE. RANDLE GETS SIX YARDS.>>Brian: AND ALL BUT ON THE ROAD, I THINK TONY ROMO IS GOING IN WITH TWO POINTS IN THE HUDDLE WHEN HE SEES A PASS IN COVERAGE LIKE I JUST DESCRIBED, HE’S GOING TO HAND THE BALL OFF. WHEN HE SEES MORE PRESSURE, HE MIGHT PUT THE BALL DOWN THE FIELD. RIGHT NOW, DETROIT HAS TO DO A BETTER JOB WITH A STANDARD PUNT.>>Dick: ROMO IS 111 FOR 26. 88 YARDS AND A TOUCHDOWN. SECOND AND FOUR. SPREAD OUT THE RECEIVERS AND ROMO IS GOING TO TAKE OFF AND GET THE FIRST DOWN. UP TO THE 40. THEY MARK IT AT THE 39. AND YOU’RE RIGHT, HE HAD THAT OTHER PLAY. PRESSURE ON HIM. HIT EIGHT TIMES, KNOCKED DOWN FIVE TIMES. SOMETIMES THEY DO MORE DAMAGES IN SACKS.>>Brian: WE WERE MORE IMPRESSED WITH THE NUMBER OF HITS ON THE QUARTERBACK THAN SACKS AT THE END OF THE GAME WHEN I WAS COACHING BALTIMORE.>>Dick: ROMO. TERRANCE WILLIAMS IN A FOOT RACE AND GETS BY GLOVER QUIN AND GETS THE TOUCHDOWN, 60 YARDS. COULDN’T DRAW THAT ONE UP BETTER, FOLKS.>>Brian: KIND OF LIKE THE CALVIN JOHNSON TOUCHDOWN WE SAW EARLIER IN THE GAME. YOU RUN THIS KIND OF ROUTE, HE’S ON THE OUTSIDE. HE RUNS A SLANT ON THE INSIDE. IT DEPENDS WHAT’S UNDERNEATH YOU. THEY CLEARED IT OUT WITH DWAYNE HARRIS. THEY BRAET BROUGHT PRESSURE ON THE INSIDE. THERE WAS NOTHING BETWEEN HIM AND TONY ROMO. THEY GET A REAL SIMPLE RUN CAUGHT AND LET THE ATHLETICISM OF WILLIAMS TURN IT INTO A TOUCHDOWN.>>Dick: AND THERE YOU CAN SEE JASON AND TERRANCE WILLIAMS, FOURTH CONSECUTIVE GAME WITH A TOUCHDOWN AND THAT IS A DALLAS COWBOYS RECORD. DAN BAILEY LOOKING TO GET THE COWBOYS A TEN-POINT LEAD AND HE DOES. 20-10, THE COWBOYS TRYING TO MAKE IT THREE IN A ROW. ARE UP BY TEN. STILL WITH PLENTY OF TIME TO GO HERE IN DETROIT.>>Dick: AND A BIG DAY FOR THE THIRD ROUND BIG FROM BAYLOR, TERRANCE WILLIAMS, WHO HAS SET A COWBOY RECORD FOR ROOKIES WITH FOUR TOUCHDOWNS IN AS MANY GAMES. AND HE STARTED TODAY WITH MILES AUSTIN OUT OF THERE. AND THE TOUCHBACK, THE LIONS WILL GET THE BALL BACK. HERE IS THE MOVE BY WILLIAMS AND THE TOUCHDOWN. AND DEúúú@ú@ú@ú@ú@úúú@@>>Dick: AND THE DETROIT LIONS REALLY HAVE THEIR WORK CUT OUT FOR THEM NOW. TRAILING 20-10. STILL PLENTY OF TIME. BUT THE COWBOYS SEEM TO HAVE TAKEN SOME SORT OF CONTROL HERE UNTIL REGGIE BUSH, THE COWBOYS TRYING TO GRAB AND PUSH AND KNOCK THE BALL LOOSE. BUT HE PICKS UP 13 YARDS AND A FIRST DOWN TO THE 34 WITH KYLE WILBUR BRINGING HIM TO A HALT.>>Brian: AND WE’VE TALKED ABOUT DALLAS AND TWO PLAY IN A HUDDLE THIS MORNING. ROMO ORCHESTRATED. DALLAS THINKING IT’S A TWO-SCORE GAME NOW. WE CAN BY MORE PASSIVE. WE’RE GOING TO SEE MORE OF REGGIE BURKE RUNNING THE BALL AS LONG AS THE COWBOYS WILL GIVE THEM THE COVERAGE TO ALLOW THEM TO DO THAT.>>Dick: STAFFORD, 22 OF 33. 311 YARDS. ONE TOUCHDOWN. HAS THROWN TWO INTERCEPTIONS. ONE OF THEM NOT HIS FAULT. HERE IS THE PASS UP THE HUDDLE. REGGIE BUSH, CLOSE TO A FIRST DOWN. SEAN LEE WAS THERE TO MAKE THE STOP. SEAN LEE WITH TWO INTERCEPTIONS TODAY FOR DALLAS.>>Brian: THAT WAS JUST AN EXTENDED DRAW PLAY, REALLY, TO REGGIE BUSH. BRING A SHALLOW ROUTE UNDERNEATH. GOT THE LINEMEN DOWN FIELD. ALMOST LIKE A MIDDLE SCREEN. A LOT OF DIVERSITY HERE IN THE DETROIT LIONS OFFENSE WITH SCOTT LANAHAN TRYING TO DIAL IT UP AS MANY WAYS AS HE CAN. THE CLOCK BECOMES AN ISSUE NOW.>>Dick: FOURTH QUARTER NUMBERS LEADING THE NFL. MATTHEW STAFFORD, YOU CAN DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING ON SECOND DOWN AND ONE. STARVED. FALLING DOWN IS DURHAM AND A FLAG GOES DOWN. KRIS DURHAM, GUARDED BY ORLANDO SCANDRICK DOWNFIELD, AND THEY’RE GOING TO CALL THE FOUL AGAINST DALLAS.>>Referee: PASS INTERFERENCE. DEFENSE NUMBER 32. AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>Dick: SCANDRICK AGAIN. PICKED UP LATER ON. I’M NOT SURE WE DIDN’T HAVE THE SAME THING THERE. RIGHT NOW, JASON GARRETT IS GOING, WAIT A MINUTE, I’VE SEEN ONE OF THESE. AND IT WENT AGAINST ME IN THE FIRST HALF. WHY IS IT NOT THAT WAY NOW?>>Brian: SO A 21-YARD PENALTY.>>Dick: FIRST DOWN ON THE THIRD AND SIX OF DALLAS. REGGIE BUSH. HAS RUN RIGHT INTO BRUCE CARTER, THE WING SPOT LINEBACKER AND IS HELD TO TWO YARDS. GAME BREAK TIME. LET’S FIND OUT WHAT CURT MIGHT KNOW MENAFEE HAS TO REPORT.>>Chris: PROVING IT TAKES TEAM WORK AGAINST THE DOLPHINS, 7-40. THE PATRIOTS, COLE GETS AN INTERCEPTION. FOLLOWED BY STEVEN RIDLEY AND A. 27-17 PATRIOTS COMEBACK LEAD.>>Dick: THE OLD TIP THROUGH.>>Brian: GETTING THE GUY TO CATCH IT IS EASY. GETTING THE GUY THAT KNOWS HOW TO — THAT’S TOUGH.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND EIGHT FOR THE LIONS, TRAILING BY TEN. STAFFORD GOES UNDERNEATH TO REGGIE BUSH. AND MAY HAVE ENOUGH FOR THE FIRST THYME DOWN. AND IT GETS TO THE 26. AND RENTALY BUSH COMING OFF AND LOOKED LIKE THE RIGHT SHOULDER AS HE COMES OFF THE FIELD.>>Brian: AGAIN, REGGIE BUSH, IT’S ALWAYS ABOUT HOW HEALTHY HE IS. THE HITS THAT HE TAKES. HOPEFULLY THAT’S JUST A BURNER. COVERING UP THE BALL. HE’S NOT GOING TURN THAT BALL OVER AGAIN, I PROMISE YOU, OR AT LEAST TRY NOT TO. HE’S GETTING HOPEFULLY A LITTLE BIT OF A STINGER. HE SHOULD BE BACK IN, HOPEFULLY.>>Dick: JOIQUE BELL REPLACES BUSH. FIRST DOWN AT THE 26. JOIQUE BELL ON THE HANDOFF. RUNS INTO HIS OWN LINEMAN. CHANGES DIRECTION. GOING TO GET A FIRST DOWN AND A LITTLE MORE THAN THAT. AND JOIQUE BELL, GREAT AWARENESS THERE. GETS TO THE TEN YARD LINE BEFORE BRANDON CARR PUSHES HIM OUT OF BOUNDS AND A GAIN OF TEN.>>Brian: JOIQUE BELL IS THE BIGGER BAT BUT HE HAS GOOD FEET. JIM SCHWARTZ SAYS THEY’RE EQUALLY COMFORTABLE WITH HE’S EVERY BIT OF 220. HE HAS VERY GOOD FEET AND VERY GOOD HANDS.>>Dick: FIRST AND GOAL AT THE TEN. ALVIN JOHNSON TO THE TOP WITH BRANDON CARR DEFENDING. LOOKING THAT WAY, HERE IS CALVIN JOHNSON. HANDING IT OF. STOP SHORT OF THE GOAL LINE. IT WILL BE SECOND AND GOAL NOW.>>Brian: A NICE JOB, UNDERNEATH THROWS. STAFFORD IS GETTING THE BALL OUT QUICK. NICE, PHYSICAL TACKLE HERE. SPUN CALVIN JOHNSON AROUND AS BIG AS HE IS TO NORMALLY POWER HIS WAY INTO THE END ZONE, BUT A NICE JOB SPINNING HIM DOWN, PUTTING THE BALL ON THE ONE.>>Dick: SECOND AND GOAL. JOIQUE BELLS GOES IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN.>>Brian: WELL, WE SAID BELL HAD GREAT FEET FOR A BIG MAN. WATCH THIS. JUST THAT LITTLE BIT OF SIDE CUT. AND THROW UP YOUR SHOULDER AND GET INTO THE END ZONE.>>Dick: HE’S GOING TO ENJOY THE CROWD. WE’VE SEEN THIS BEFORE. HE’S LEADING HIS OWN CHEER. SO BELL WITH A TOUCHDOWN AND SETTING IT UP WAS CALVIN JOHNSON AS HE SET UP A COUPLE OF SCORES TODAY. AKERS. WITH THE POINT ANSWER AND A COMPLETE POINT GAME. SEVEN PLAYS, 80 YARDS IS JUST UNDER FOUR MINUTES. 7:38 TO GO IN THE FOURTH AND THE COWBOYS LEAD IS NOW DOWN TO THREE.>>Dick: JOIQUE BELL WITH HIS FOURTH TOUCHDOWN OF THE SEASON. REGGIE BUSH, WHO WENT OUT WITH AN INJURY TO HIS SHOULDER AT 33 TOTAL YARDS ON THE 80-YARD DRIVE. AND A REPORT ON MORRIS CLAIBORNE, BY THE WAY, HAMSTRING INJURY. WEBB HAS BEEN IN ON THE NICKEL AS DWAYNE HARRIS GOES BACK DEEP. SAM MARTIN KICKING OFF. NOW A TIGHTER GAME WITH 7:38 TO GO IN THE FORTY QUARTER. AND RUNNING IT OUT, HARRIS. HARRIS. HARRIS. AND IS FINALLY BROUGHT DOWN AT THE 47. DWAYNE HARRIS. TAKING AN EIGHT-YEAR DEEP, 56-RETURN HERE.>>JUST THE SPEED OF HARRIS. RIGHT HERE, A LITTLE FAN AND THEN HE SEES THAT ALLEY ON THE INSIDE. SHOWING SOME STRENGTH, AS WELL. STEPPING THROUGH A COUPLE TACKLES.>>Brian: AGAIN, LAST WEEK WAS THE DIFFERENCEMAKER IN THE WIN AGAINST THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES. OBVIOUSLY SETTING UP A BIG PLAY HERE. THEY’RE NOT IN FOUR-MINUTE MODE, BUT THEY WANT TO RUN AS MUCH OF THE CLOCK DOWN AS THEY CAN AS THEY MOVE INTO A — WHETHER IT’S FIELD GOAL POSITION ORR TO GET A TOUCHDOWN.>>Dick: AND THE CROW WITH A KICKOFF RETURN AS THE LION WENT IN FOR A SCORE. FIRST DOWN ON THE 48. JOSEPH RANDLE GETS THREE. COWBOYS CONTINUE TO RUN THE BALL ON FIRST DOWN WHEN THEY’RE GIVING THE RIGHT FRONT. AND RIGHT NOW, IT’S EVEN MORE IMPORTANT. WE’RE A LITTLE OVER SEVEN MINUTES. THEY CAN HOLD ON AND TAKE DOWN A BIG CHUNK OF THIS CLOCK, MOVE INTO A MINIMUM OF FIELD GOAL POSITIONS. NOW MAKE IT A SIX-POINT DIFFERENTIAL WITH LESS TIME ON THE CLOCK.>>Dick: SECOND DOWN AND EIGHT. ROMO, AND A COMPLETION TO DEZ BRYANT. TURNS AROUND. STAYS INBOUNDS. RACING TOWARDS THE END ZONE. AND IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. NO COMPLAINTS THERE, I’M SURE, FOR DEZ BRYANT. A 50-YARD RUN FOR TONY ROMO AND THE COWBOYS FIGHT BACK.>>Brian: WATCH HIM ON THE INSIDE. HE BEGINS TO LOSE GROUND. THEY’RE BOTH GOING FOR THE BALL. HOPING TO INTERCEPTION IT OR KNOCK IT DOWN. AND THAT IS DEZ BRYANT, WHAT HE CAN DO AFTER THE CATCH IS WHAT DIFFERENTIATES HIM FROM SO MANY OTHER RECEIVERS EVEN THOUGH HE’S A BIG PHYSICAL RECEIVER.>>WA A PIVOT AND RUN FOR DEZ BRYANT, HIS SECOND TOUCHDOWN CATCH OF THE GAME. AND ONCE AGAIN, BAILEY TRYING TO GIVE THE COWBOYS A TEN-POINT LEAD AND HE DOES. YOU HAD A LOT OF CLOCK AND THEY DIDN’T CONTROL THE BOARD.>>Brian: AND IT’S 27-17 AND BRYANT IS OFF THE TO THE RACES.>>Brian: I THINK HE’S GOING TO BE HAPPIER ON THE SIDELINES NOW.>>Dick: AND THIS IS WHAT THIS GUY GIVES YOU, OUTSTANDING TALENT. UNBELIEVABLE FIRSTS FOR A MAN HIS SIZE CAN BE AN IMPASSE PLAYER. SO YOU CAN TRULY UNDERSTAND THE ROLE HE HAS ON THIS TEAM AND HE’LL GET THERE. HE’S A YOUNG MAN, STILL LEARNING. BUT THE COWBOYS DESPERATELY NEED TO SEE THAT DEZ BRYANT OF A REGULAR BASIS. BIG PERFORMANCE, HE HAD A TD. FOR TONY ROMO, HOW ABOUT THIS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER? ROMO HAS THROWN TOUCHDOWN PASSES OF 60 AND 50 YARDS ON CONSECUTIVE THROWS. THAT’S TONY ROMO, THE COWBOYS WHO LEAD BY TEN.>>Brian: AND WE THROW OUT STATISTICS. OFFENSE, 256. BUT THIS SHOWS YOU, THE NUMBERS DON’T TELL YOU ANYTHING. TURNOVERS AND TONY ROMO MAKING BIG PLAYS WHEN THEY NEED TO MAKE BIG PLAYS.>>Dick: JEREMY ROSS IS BACK AND DAN BAILEY WILL KICK OFF. NOW WE HAVE WHAT WE THOUGHT WE MIGHT HAVE IS EACH TEAM COMING BACK AND PUNCHING AND COUNTERPUNCHING AND GETTING TOUCHDOWNS. AND THE LIONS WILL GET IT AT THE 20. TONIGHT, PIVOTAL GAME FOUR OF THE WORLD SERIES FROM ST. LOUIS. CARLOS BELTRAN AND THE CARDINALS LOOK TO TAKE A COMMANDING 3-1 SERIES LEAD. DAVID ORTIZ AND THE RED SOX TRYING TO BATTLE BACK AND TIE THE SERIES. TONIGHT’S STARTING PITCHERS, CLAY BUCHHOLZ FROM BOSTON AND LANCE LYNN FROM THE CARDINALS WHO HAS BEEN SO EFFECTIVE AT HOME THIS YEAR AFTER LAST NIGHT’S GAME ENDING ON AN OBSTRUCTION PLAY AND THEY ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THAT ONE. LION WES A FIRST DOWN AT THE 20. ONCE AGAIN, DOWN BY TEN. AND THIS TIME, STAFFORD GOING UP ON TOP TO CALVIN JOHNSON WHO MAKES THE CATCH. INCREDIBLE. 54 YARDS. CARR DEFENDING.>>Brian: I’M GOING TO STEAL A TERM FROM MY DAUGHTER. OH, MY GOD. THIS IS THE CONSUMMATE CALVIN JOHNSON. TWO PEOPLE DRAPED ALL OVER HIM. YOU’D HAVE NO PROBLEM TELLING THE QUARTERBACK WHAT ARE YOU DOING THROWING UP A JUMP BALL DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD WITH TWO DEFENDERS ALL OVER HIM? WELL, BECAUSE YOU’VE GOT CALVIN JOHNSON.>>Dick: AND A CAREER HIGH RECEPTION YARDAGE AS REGGIE BUSH COMING BACK FROM HIS SHOULDER INJURY, AND HE GETS THREE YARDS ON THE PLAY.>>Brian: DON’T THINK THAT WAS AN ABERRATION. THERE’S TWO ON ONE. HE’S GOING TO USE THAT 42-INCH VERTICAL JUMP. HE’S NONDISCRIMINATORY. AGAINST THE PACKERS, AGAIN AGAINST THE COWBOYS. WHAT A LEAP THIS GUY HAS. WHAT IT TAKES TO GET THE UPSET THAT WAY. AND RIGHT HERE, LOOK AT THAT RIGHT HERE. JUST WHAT MATTHEW STAFFORD SAYS, I’M GOING TO PUT IT UP ON THE RIM. I’LL LET YOU PULL IT OFF THE RIM AND NOBODY ELSE CAN GET THERE.>>Dick: 284 RECEIVING YARDS, A CAREER HIGH FOR CALVIN JOHNSON. SECOND DOWN AND SIX. HERE’S REGGIE BUSH. LET’S SEE IF BUSH WAS ABLE TO GET THE FIRST DOWN ON THAT PLAY. 5:15 TO GO IN THE FOURTH QUARTER. AND A SIX-YARD GAIN AND A FIRST DOWN FOR THE LIONS. BOY, WE HAVE HAD A HEAVYWEIGHT BATTLE WITH THE WIDE RECEIVERS UNHERALDED AND THE QUARTERBACK COMING UP HERE IN THE SECOND HALF.>>Brian: AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, THE STARS ARE GOING TO SHOW UP, AREN’T THEY, DICK?>>Dick: YES, THEY ARE. WE’RE SEEING IT FIRSTHAND. FIRST DOWN ON THE 15. STAFFORD TO THE END ZONE. AND OFF THE HANDS OF DURHAM, INCOMPLETE. SECOND DOWN AND TEN. HOW ABOUT THAT? CALVIN JOHNSON HAS MORE RECEIVING YARDS TODAY THAN THE COWBOYS HAVE TOTAL YARDS. AND YET DALLAS IS UP BY TEN AND PARTIALLY THANKS TO THE LIONS TURNOVERS. STAFFORD TO JOHNSON WHO GETS INSIDE THE TEN. SEAN LEE RIGHT THERE WITH THE PLAY.>>Brian: AGAIN, MATTHEW STAFFORD, I’LL GET IT THERE ANY WAY I HAVE TO. I CAN SIGNED ARM IT IN THERE BECAUSE IF I THROW IT OVER THE TOP, I MAY NOT HAVE THE TRAJECTORY TO COMPLETE IT. STAFFORD IS HAVING A HECK OF A DAY, BUT RIGHT NOW HE WOULD TRADE IT FOR A COUPLE OF TOUCHDOWNS.>>Dick: CALVIN JOHNSON, 12 CATCH WEBS 219 YARDS. THIRD DOWN AND FOUR. WIND TO GO FOUR MINUTES REMAINING. HERE COMES STAFFORD AND STAFFORD STOPS SHY OF THE GOAL LINE. HE’S STOPPED INSIDE THE ONE.>>Brian: I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THIS. HE STARTED TO GO DOWN. HE’S NOT GIVING HIMSELF UP. HE’S THE BALL CARRIER HERE. HE’S NOT GOING TO GET ANY PROTECTION. YES, HE WAS DOWN. THE BALL AS HE WENT TO PROTECT IT DID NOT PASS.>>Dick: FIRST AND GOAL AT THE ONE. AND HERE IS REGGIE BUSH. BUSH TRYING TO PUT HIS ARM OVER. TOUCHDOWN. REGGIE BUSH GOT THE BALL OVER THE PLANE. AND SCORED THE BIG TOUCHDOWN FOR THE LIONS. BUT IT WAS CALVIN JOHNSON, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE SAID THIS, WHO PLAYED THE MAJOR ROLE OF SETTING IT UP.>>Brian: YEAH. THIS COMBINATION OF CALVIN JOHNSON AND REGGIE BUSH, THEY’RE GENERATING THE NUMBERS. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY THINK ABOUT AN ON-SIDE KICK. I THINK THEY’LL KICK IT OFF AND GIVE THE DEFENSE A CHANCE.>>Dick: ALL SCORING PLAYS ARE REVIEWED. SO JOHNSON, THEY’RE GOING TO SEE WHETHER BUSH GETS CREDIT FOR THIS TOUCHDOWN.>>Dick: THE TOUCHDOWN BY REGGIE BUSH IS UNDER REVIEW. THE RULING ON THE FIELD IS THAT HE WAS OVER THE BALL, CROSSED THE PLANE PORE THE TOUCHDOWN. TAKE A LOOK HERE.>>Brian: YOU’LL SEE HIS KNEE IS DOWN, BUT FROM THIS ANGLE, NOT SURE IF HE’S — OFFICIALS SAY THAT HE HAS. IT IS A TOUCHDOWN. YOU CAN SEE THE BALL CLEARLY BROKE THE PLANE OF THE GOAL LINE. I JUST DIDN’T KNOW FOR SURE WHETHER THE KNEE WAS DOWN BEFORE OR AFTER.>>Dick: SECOND TOUCHDOWN ON THE GROUND FOR REGGIE BUSH. THIS YEAR. AND IT WAS A FIRST AND GOAL PLAY FROM THE 1 YARD LINE. SO LIONS WOULD HAVE HAD A COUPLE OF OTHER SHOTS. IF THEY HADN’T. WE WANT TO WELCOME THOSE WHO JOPD JUST JOINED US HERE AT FORD FIELD IN DETROIT. DAVID AKERS JUST KICKED THE EXTRA POINT TO BRING THE LIONS TO WITHIN THREE AND THE COWBOYS HAVE THE STORY IN THE SECOND HALF WHERE DALLAS HAS MAINTAINED TEN-POINT LEADS ONLY TO SEE DETROIT COME BACK. DICK STOCKTON ALONG WITH BRIAN BILLICK AND LAURA OKMIN. CALVIN JOHNSON AND DEZ BRYANT LIVING UP TO THEIR ADVANCED BILLING, ESPECIALLY IN THE SECOND HALF FOR CALVIN JOHNSON. A CAREER RECEIVING YARD DAY AT 290 YARDS AND THE SIX MOST IN LEAGUE HISTORY. AND LET’S SEE WHAT CALVIN JOHNSON HAS DONE, BRIAN BILLICK.>>Brian: WELL, HERE YOU CAN SEE A SIMPLE LANCE,S GOES 87 YARDS FOR A TOUCHDOWN. NOT A BAD START TO THE DAY. HERE WAS THE TOUGH PART. HE HAD TWO FUMBLES, IF YOU CAN CALL THEM THAT. NOW HE’S IN POSITION FOR A SCORE DOWN THE FIELD. HOW HE DOES THIS, THERE’S VERY FEW PEOPLE IN THE LEAGUE THAT CAN GO UP OVER THE TOP OF TWO DEFENDERS AND PULL IT DOWN. CALVIN JOHNSON, THIS IS A CLASS ACT AND AS GOOD A DAY. IF HE COULD HAVE TRADED OFF THOSE TWO FUMBLES THAT HE HAD, ONE SETTING UP THE SCORE.>>Dick: AND THE LION VES TURNED IT OVER FOUR TIMES. THEY HAVE DOMINATED PASSING AND YARDEN ADVANTAGES. BUT DALLAS HAS THE LEAD. BY THE WAY, DEZ BRYANT HAS BROUGHT TWO TOUCHDOWN PASSES IN HIS OWN RIGHT TODAY. SO THE GAME AT THE HALF WAS 10-7. A LOT LOWER THAN PEOPLE ANTICIPATED, BUT LIVED UP THE SCORING EXPECTATIONS IN THE SECOND HALF. HERE’S DWAYNE HARRIS RUNNING IT OUT FOR DALLAS. AND HE’S HAD A SUPERB DAY ON THE RETURN. RIGHT NOW, GAME BREAK.>>THANK YOU, DICK. JUST A REMINDER, FOR MOST OF YOU COMING UP NEXT ON FOX, IT’S RG3 AND THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS FACE PEYTON MANNING AND THE DENVER BRONCOS AND MIKE SHANAHAN’S RETURN TO THE MILE HIGH CITY. DICK.>>Dick: JOEL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AMERICA’S GAME OF THE WEEK COMING UP NEXT. TONY ROMO, SINCE THE FIRST QUARTER, HAS BEEN LIGHTS OUT. AND A FIRST DOWN ON THE 19 FOR DALLAS.>>Brian: WE’RE CLEARLY IN A FOUR-MINUTE MODE HERE. YOU WANT TO SHAVE AS MUCH OFF THE CLOCK AUS POSSIBLY CAN.>>Dick: LIONS HAVE ALL THREE OF THEIR TIME-OUTS REMAINING. THE COWBOYS, JUST TWO. WE WANT TO WELCOME OUR LATEST VIEWERS TO A TIGHT-THREE-POINT GAME HERE IN DETROIT. COWBOYS LEAD, FIRST DOWN FROM THE 19 AND A PASS INCOMPLETE, INTENDED FOR DEZ BRYANT, BUT A PENALTY FLAG IS DOWN. LET’S SEE IF BRYANT WAS INTERFERED WITH. HE WAS COVERED BY RASHEAN MATHIS.>>Referee: PASS INTERFERENCE. DEFENSE NUMBER 31.>>Dick: PASS INTERFERENCE, FIRST DOWN, COWBOYS.>>Brian: YOU CAN SEE THE SAFETIES UP IN THE BOX HERE. TONY ROMO CHECKED THE PLAY. THEY WERE ANTICIPATING RUN. I GET THE ONE-ON-ONE COVERAGE. I WANT TO THROW THE BALL. I’LL TAKE A FIRST DOWN ANYWHERE I CAN GET IT. THE QUESTION IS WITH THIS ONE-ON-ONE COVERAGE, HOW MANY TIMES WAS TONY ROMO TAKE A CHANCE AS OPPOSED TO RUNNING THE BALL AND CRACKED OUT THE SPOTS? RIGHT HAND PUSH IN THE BACK BY MATHIS. FIST DOWN AND TEN AT THE 25. COWBOYS TRYING TO PROTECT THE THREE-POINT LEAD. HERE IS JOSEPH RANDLE. STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS BY DEANDRE LEVY. AND A LOSS OF THREE.>>Brian: BRILLIANT JOB BY LEVY, SEEING IT JUST FILL THROUGH THE GAP. THAT’S A HUGE PLAY NOW TO TAKE THEM BACK. YOU’LL SEE LEVY ALL OF A SUDDEN SHOW UP OUT OF NOWHERE. THAT UNBLOCKED DEFENDER, WHAT WE CALL A FREE RUNNER. NO THAT PUTS THEM IN A MUCH TOUGHER DISTANCE. SECOND AND REAL LONG. DETROIT NEEDS THAT TO GET THE BALL OUT OF THEIR HANDS. DEFENSE AT A THIRD AND ONE.>>Dick: SECOND AND 13. THEY GO TO RANDLE. NOTHING THERE. THIRD DOWN AND LONG AFTER THE ONE-YARD PICK UP. AND A TIME-OUT CALLED BY THE LIONS. IT IS THEIR FIRST OF THE SECOND HALF. GOOD TIME-OUT USE BY JIM SCHWARTZ. HE HAD THREE TIME-OUTS. YOU CAN SEE HERE THIRD DOWN, HASN’T BEEN REAL PRODUCTIVE.>>Brian: THEY USE THE TIME-OUT SO THAT THEY CAN HOLD ON TO THE TWO MINUTES. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE LAST DRIVE HERE. HE FINALLY GOT IT TO DEZ BRYANT. HE WAS RANTING AND RAISING OFF THE SIDELINES. HE SAYS, OKAY, I’LL THROW IT TO YOU.>>Dick: BRYANT, THREE CATCHES. CALVIN JOHNSON, 12 RECEPTIONS, A CAREER HIGH 290 YARDS. AND A TOUCHDOWN.>>Brian: I WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN, JIM SCHWARTZ USED A TIME-OUT THAT FORCES THEM NOW TO MAKE THIS THIRD DOWNPLAY. HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET THIS PLAY AND POSSIBLY THE PUNT IF HE WANTS TO USE A TIME-OUT OR USE THE TWO-MINUTE WARNING TO GET THE CLOCK STOPPED.>>Dick: WE’LL SEE IF DALLAS WANTS TO THROW HERE. ROMO IN TROUBLE AND THROWS IT AWAY. LIONS GOT WHAT THEY WANTED.>>Brian: AND THAT’S JUST WHAT I WAS ASKING, YOU RUN THE RISK WHEN YOU HAVE TO GO AND THROW THE BALL ON THIRD AND LONG, THAT STOPS THE CLOCK. THAT MEANS DETROIT NOW OUTSPOTED THE TWO-MINUTE WARNING AND WE GET ONE-ON-ONE COVERAGE HERE WITH NO PLACE TO GO WITH THE PRESSURE NOW WITH 2:32 ON THE CLOCK AND THERE’S NOTHING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FIELD, EITHER. YOU ACTUALLY PICK UP AN EXTRA TIME-OUT BECAUSE THE TWO-MINUTE WARNING. THIS IS GOING JUST THE WAY THE DETROIT LIONS WANT IT.>>Dick: CHRIS JONES IS PUNTING. ROSS WITH A PAIR OF CATCH AT THE 33 WITH 2:24 TO GO AND TWO TIME-OUTS LEFT FOR MATTHEW STAFFORD AND THE DETROIT LIONS. STAFFORD, ONE TOUCHDOWN AND TWO INTERCEPTIONS TODAY. AND TRYING TO BRING THE LIONS BACK HERE TO A LATE WIN. DETROIT TRYING TO AVOID BACK TO BACK HOME LOSSES. THE COWBOYS TRYING TO WIN THEIR THIRD IN A ROW FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR.>>Brian: AND THE THREE-POINT DIFFERENTIAL IS HUGE HERE, DICK, BECAUSE IT GIVES DETROIT A LOT MORE OPTIONS IN THEIR PLAY CALLING. THEY WANT THE SEVEN, MAKE NO MISTAKE, BUT THEY’LL TAKE THE THREE SHORT OF THAT IF THEY HAVE TO TO PUT THIS THING INTO OVERTIME.>>Dick: FROM THE 33, STAFFORD SACKED. AND THAT IS THE FIRST SACK FOR EITHER TEAM TODAY. AND IT WAS JASON HATCHER AND A LOSS OF EIGHT.>>Brian: THAT WAS HUGE. THEY HAVE TO RESHUFFLE THE LINEUP OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS. THE ONE STARTING THEY’VE HAD, THE GET-GO JASON HATCHER SHOWS UP HUGE WITH A STUNT. THIS PUTS DETROIT IN A TOUGH POSITION, ALBEIT AT THE TWO-MINUTE WARNING.>>Dick: AND WARE, YOU SAW HIM, HATCHER PICKS UP HIS SEVENTH SACK.>>Dick: TWO MINUTES REMAINING AND IT WILL BE SECOND DOWN AND 18 AFTER THE FIRST SACK OF THE GAME. MATTHEW STAFFORD QUICKLY GOES BACK AND COMPLETES THE PETTIGREW, THE TIGHT END. JEFF HEATH RIGHT THERE AND A GAIN OF SIX. LIONS HAVE TWO TIME-OUTS REMAINING.>>Brian: MEGATRON IS HERE IN THE SLOT. THIS IS WHEN YOU NEED HIM, GO AHEAD AND THROW IT UP.>>Dick: DOWN THE MIDDLE AND THE PASS IS RULED INCOMPLETE. TRYING TO THREAD THE NEEDLE TO PETTIGREW, AGAIN, WITH TWO DEFENDERS ALL OVER PETTIGREW, INCLUDING BRUCE CARTER. SO NOW IT IS FOURTH DOWN.>>Brian: ALMOST GOT IT IN THERE. I’M NOT SURE. AGAIN, SEAN LEE, RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. HE HAS A BIT OF A HAND THERE ON IT, EVEN THOUGH PETTIGREW PROBABLY COULD HAVE PULLED THAT IN. SO IT IS FOURTH AND 12 AND IT’S ALL RIGHT HERE FOR THE LIONS. MATTHEW STAFFORD, BEING CHASED BY CARTER. AND HIS HANDS — IT’S DEFLECTED. LET’S SEE IF IT’S INTERCEPTED BY HEATH. AND IT’S INCOMPLETE, BUT THE COWBOYS WILL TAKE OVER ON DOWNS IN ANY EVENT. AND FOR MATTHEW STAFFORD AND THE DETROIT LIONS, IN A BIG BATTLE THAT THEY NEEDED, NOW TRAIL BY THREE AND LOSE THE BALL LATE.>>Brian: THIS IS FITTING. PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE FITTING IF IT HAD BEEN AN INTERCEPTION RATHER THAN DOWNED, BECAUSE THAT’S THE STORY OF THIS GAME, WHETHER IT’S INTERCEPTIONS OR THE FUMBLES THAT WERE ACTUALLY LABELED AS INTERCEPTIONS. BECAUSE THAT’S THE STORY OF THE GAME ON A DAY WHEN THE DETROIT LIONS HAVE BETTER THAN 500 YARDS OF TOTAL OFFENSE THAT ARE GOING TO COME AWAY WITH A 27-24 LOSS FOR THE DALLAS COWBOYS.>>Dick: SO THE COWBOYS WILL TAKE IT OVER ON THE 31 YARDS LINE AFTER THE INCOMPLETE PASS AND TWO TIME-OUTS REMAINING FOR THE LIONS. TRYING TO GET OFF THE FIELD. SO THAT THEY’RE ONLY 11 MEN ON THERE. BALL IS AT THE 31 OF DETROIT. HERE’S JOSEPH RANDLE. AND THE LIONS CALL A TIME-OUT. THEY’LL HAVE ONE LEFT. WELL, COMING UP ON THE PEPSI GAME BREAK SHOW, CURT, TERRY, HOWIE, MICHAEL AND JIMMY WILL HAVE SCORES AND HIGHLIGHTS FROM AROUND THE LEAGUE AND THE FOX SPORTS TICKER HAS UP TO THE SECOND SCORES AND SACKS.>>Brian: THEY COULD DO THAT WHOLE SHOW JUST ON THIS GAME RIGHT HERE. WE’VE HAD IT ALL. BIG PLAYS, TURNOVERS, BIG RECEPTIONS, BIG RUNS.>>Dick: TURNOVERS, BIG. FOUR TURNOVERS.>>Brian: AGAIN, HERE YOU GO, CALVIN JOHNSON TIPS IT UP IN THE AIR. THIS ONE, SEAN LEE DOING A GREAT JOB STEPPING INTO A PLANT THAT TURNS INTO A TOUCHDOWN. REGGIE BUSH, A MISHANDLING OF THE BALL THAT TURNS OVER. AGAIN, CALVIN JOHNSON. JUST TRYING TO GET HIT, BOUNCED UP IN THE AIR FOR BRANDON CARR.>>Dick: AND THERE’S SEAN LEE WHOSE 11 INTERCEPTIONS, BOTH BY ANY LINEBACKER IN THE LEAD IN THE LAST THREE YEARS PICKED OFF TWO MORE TODAY. ONE RUNNING BACK 74 YARDS TO SET UP A DALLAS TOUCHDOWN SINCE 2011 TEAMS WITH A MINUS HAD TURNOVER MARGIN HAVE ONLY ONE WIN. THEY’VE LOST 55 TIMES AND THAT INCLUDES THIS RESULT IF IT GOES DALLAS’S WAY. AND THE LIONS WILL USE THEIR THIRD AND FINAL TIME-OUT.>>Brian: AND I PROMISE YOU THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO HEAR FROM HEAD COACH JIM SCHWARTZ IN HIS POST NEWS CONFERENCE. YOU CAN’T GO IN AND TURN THE BALL OVER FOUR TIMES AND EXPECT TO WIN. THIS WILL BE TOUGH FOR THE LIONS. TWO HOME LOSSES, LAST WEEK CINCINNATI SINCE AND THIS WEEK AGAINST THE DALLAS COWBOYS IF THIS HOLDS. FORMULA FOR BEING A CHAMPION, BEING IN THE PLAYOFFS, WIN AT HOME, SPLIT ON THE ROAD.>>Dick: THE COWBOYS WILL GO TO 5-3 AND THEY’VE DROT DROP TO 4-4. THE FIRST TIME COWBOYS HAVE WON THREE IN A ROW THIS YEAR AND WILL EXTEND THEIR BEST NFC START TO 5-0, THE BEST SINCE THE 2007 CAMPAIGN.>>Brian: AND GET A LITTLE HELP FROM THE NEW YORK GIANTS. UPSETTING, IF YOU WANT TO CALL IT AN UPSET, THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES, 15 WILL HAVE 7.>>Dick: SO DALLAS COULD HAVE A TWO-GAME LEAD IN THE DIVISION. AND DEZ BRYANT WITH TWO TOUCHDOWN PASSES INCLUDING A GREAT PIVOT ON THE SIDELINES FOR 50 YARDS. AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, IN FOUR YEARS, THE COWBOYS WILL HAVE A WINNING RECORD AT THE HALFWAY POINT OF THIS LEAGUE. THIRD DOWN AND 14. NO TIME-OUTS REMAINING.>>Brian: IT WOULD BE SHOCKING IF THEY THREW THE — >>Dick: THIRD DOWN AND 14. PATTERN. RUNNING OUTSIDE. AND WANTS TO STAY INBOUNDS AND HE DOES.>>Brian: IT’S A TOUGH DILEMMA. IT WILL BE HOLDING ON THE COWBOYS. AND YOU CAN TAKE THE PENALTY AND BACK THEM UP, BUT THAT’S GOING TO COST YOU SOME SOMETIME NOW. IF YOU DON’T TAKE IT, IT PUTS IT IN AN EASY FIELD GOAL POSITION.>>Dick: OR WORSE, IT STOPS THE CLOCK. JASON GARRETT TELLING EVERYONE ELSE TO STAY CALM DURING THIS.>>Brian: YEAH. AND HE’S DECLINING IT. THERE HE’S OPT TO GO BUY DOWN THE CLOCK.>>Referee: HOLDING. OFFENSE NUMBER 777. PENALTY DECLINED. RESULTS OF THE PLAY, FOURTH DOWN.>>Dick: NOW JASON GARTH HAS TO MAKE THE DECISION, DO YOU WANT TO ATTEMPT THE FIELD GOAL? CERTAINLY A MAKABLE FIELD GOAL, BUT A LOT OF THINGS CAN HAPPEN ON A FIELD GOAL. DO YOU WANT TO OPT TO RUN ANOTHER PLAY AND NOW LET THE CLOCK WIND DOWN OR IN THIS INSTANCE, IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE GOING TO GO WITH THE FIELD GOAL. AND YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE FAITH IN YOUR FIELD GOAL TEAM. HOW CAN YOU NOT?>>Brian: YOU WANT TO GO IN THERE AND SECURE THIS WITH YOUR FIELD GOAL. BUT A LOT OF THINGS CAN HAPPEN AS OPPOSED TO SAYING, YOU KNOW WHAT? I’LL RUN ANOTHER PLAY. DO YOU THINK THE LIONS CAN GO THE LENGTH OF THIS FIELD. I THINK I BELIEVE IN MY FIELD GOAL TEAM.>>Dick: A 44 YARDER. IF THEY DO MISS IT, THE FIELD POSITION WOULD WORK FOR THE LIONS HERE. DAN BAILEY HAS CONNECTED ON TWO 53-YARDERS AND THIS KICK IS GOOD. DAN BAILEY. WITH HIS THIRD FIELD GOAL ON THE GAME GIVING THE COWBOYS A SIX-POINT LEAD AND WITH NO TIME-OUTS REMAINING, THE LIONS NEED A TOUCHDOWN AND AN EXTRA POINT. TO PULL THIS GAME OUT. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE LIONS UPCOMING SCHEDULE, A BYE WEEK AND THEY PLAY AT THE BEARS. AND SIX OF THEIR FINAL EIGHT GAMES WOULD BE AGAINST TEAMS WITH LOSING RECORDS GOING INTO TODAY’S ACTIONS.>>Brian: BUT IT’S GETTING BETTER, TAMPA BAY IS STRUGGLING. GREEN BAY, ALWAYS A BIG GAME.>>Dick: AND FOR THE DALLAS COWBOYS, THEY WILL HOST THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS NEXT WEEK. AND THEY DON’T HAVE AN INCREDIBLY IMPOSING SCHEDULE THE REST OF THE WAY, EITHER. BUT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN EASY GAME IN THIS LEAGUE.>>Brian: NEW ORLEANS AT NEW ORLEANS, YOU KNOW IT’S TOUGH. THE GIANTS. THEN THE BYE. THE GOOD THING FOR THEM IS THEY’VE ALREADY SWEPT THE DIVISION AT LEAST IN THE FIRST HALF. THAT IS HUGE, PARTICULARLY WITH THE REST OF THE DIVISION KNOCKING EACH OTHER OFF. WE MENTIONED NEW YORK BEAT PHILLY TODAY. SO THEY’RE IN GREAT POSITION, JASON GARRETT. JIM SCHWARTZ FEELING GOOD ABOUT HIS TEAM. WIN AT HOME, SPLIT ON THE ROAD, THIS IS A GOOD SPLIT ON THE ROAD AGAINST A GOOD DETROIT LIONS TEAM.>>Dick: NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. THE ONLY LOSS THAT THE COWBOYS HAVE SUFFERED HAVE BEEN TO AFC WEST TEAMS. AND THE LIONS WILL HAVE 1:02 AND NO TIME-OUTS LEFT STARTING FROM THEIR 20. NEEDING A TOUCHDOWN. SO THE — WE CALL THEM THE WRECKING CREW OF CALVIN JOHNSON AND REGGIE BUSH. 412 TOTAL YARDS TODAY. TALK ABOUT ONE-TWO PUNCH. JOHNSON WITH 12 CATCHES, 290 YARDS AND A TD RECEPTION. THEY’VE GOT A FOUR-MAN RUSH, BUT EVERYONE BEHIND, AND THEY GO UNDERNEATH TO REGGIE BUSH WHO WILL GO OUT OF BOUNDS AND STOP THE CLOCK. AFTER GETTING NO YARDS. SO ITS WILL BE SECOND AND SIX.>>Brian: DETROIT IS OUT OF TIME-OUTS. SO MOST OF WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO, UNLESS THEY TAKE THAT BIG SHOT DOWN THE FIELD, MOST OF IT HAS TO BE TO THE EDGES TO ALLOW THE RECEIVER TO GET OUT OF BOUNDS AND STOP THE CLOCK.>>Dick: STAFFORD HAS DONE THIS BEFORE. NOT SURE HOW MANY TIMES HE’S HAD TO DO IT WITH SO MANY OBSTACLES HE FACES HERE. SECOND AND TEN. STAFFORD BREAKING OUT. AND THE PASS IS COMPLETED, BUT NOW JOHNSON IS AT THE 37. GAIN OF 17. AND THEY CLOCK IT. YOU LIKE THE IDEA WITH A FOUR-MAN RUSH? A LOT OF TEAMS USE THREE AT THE END.>>Brian: WELL, BUT WE’VE ALSO SEEN AN INOPPORTUNE SACK AT THE RIGHT TIME CAN KILL YOU. IT CAN KILL THIS DRIVE. SO I’M OKAY WITH A FOUR-MAN RUSH. YOU KNOW, THE OLD SAYING THAT EIGHT IS ENOUGH? OKAY? EIGHT OUGHT TO BE ENOUGH IN THE BACK END.>>Dick: YOU WOULD THINK. SECOND DOWN AND TEN. ON THE 37. STAFFORD GOING DEEP. AND DURHAM HAS IT! KRIS DURHAM! TREMENDOUS PLAY. AND NOW THE BALL IS INSIDE THE 25 WITH 33 SECONDS TO GO AND A FIRST DOWN.>>Brian: IT’S RARE TO GET A GO-ROUND ON THE OUTSIDE AGAINST A LOOSE COVERED DEFENSE LIKE THIS SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE SAFETIES PLAYING A LITTLE WIDER. THIS IS AN UNBELIEVABLY ACCURATE THROW. BIG RECEIVER DURHAM ON THE OUTSIDE. I SAID YOU NORMALLY GET THE BIG PLAYS TO THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. YOU CAN KEEP IT OUTSIDE AND 1207 THE CLOCK TO GET A BIG PLAY OUTSIDE.>>Dick: 40 YARDS. AND HERE IS STAFFORD’S PASS AND CALVIN JOHNSON. STOPPED AT THE 1 YARD LINE. THE DETROIT LIONS, NO TIME-OUTS LEFT. TIME IS RUNNING. THEY’RE AT THE ONE AND STAFFORD SAYS COME ON IN. REACHES OVER. TOUCHDOWN.>>Brian: UNBELIEVABLE.>>Dick: LIONS LOST A HEARTBREAKER LAST WEEK. BIG PASS TO DURHAM. TO CALVIN JOHNSON. AND IF YOU’RE THE COWBOYS, HOW DO YOU LET THIS HAPPEN?>>Brian: OH, THEY’VE GOT TO REVIEW IT, OBVIOUSLY. IT IS A SCORING PLAY. BUT I’LL TELL YOU WHAT, SOME KEY DECISIONS HERE. AND, AGAIN, YOU KNEW IT HAD TO BE CALVIN JOHNSON TO KIND OF GET THE THING STARTED. NOW THEY’RE GOING TO COME BACK AND MAKE SURE CALVIN JOHNSON DIDN’T GET INVOLVED. GREAT PLAY RIGHT HERE THE BRING IT DOWN TO THE ONE YARD LINE. AND SMART MOVE BY STAFFORD. WE’RE GOING TO CLOCK IT, WE’RE GOING TO CLOCK IT. THAT’S WHAT ADDRESS THOUGHT. THEY THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO CLOCK IT BECAUSE OF THE TIME. THAT POSTGAME NEWS CONFERENCE I WAS TALKING ABOUT?>>Dick: YEAH, RIGHT.>>Brian: JUST CHASED A LITTLE BIT. ALL THOSE CAMERAS THAT WERE IN THE DALLAS LOCKER ROOM AND MEDIA ROOM, THAT ALL WENT TO DETROIT.>>Dick: COME-FROM-BEHIND VICTORIES.>>Dick: HE’S CALLING CLOCK, BUT HE’S GOT SOME KIND OF VERAGE OF SOMETHING TO TELL THAT OFFENSIVE LINE. HE DID IT ON HIS OWN. I’M WATCHING THE LINE. THEY HAD NO IDEA MATTHEW STAFFORD WAS DOING THAT. I’M TLG YOU RIGHT NOW, THAT’S FALLING OUT BY A MATTHEW STAFFORD JUST BEING A HEADY QUARTERBACK.>>Dick: AND WHAT DOES THIS MEAN, GOING AGAINST THE TEAM? HE LOVED AS A YOUTH FROM HIGHLAND PARK, MATTHEW STAFFORD, ONCE AGAIN, COMING BACK AND LEADING WHAT WOULD BE A VICTORY OVER THE DALLAS COWBOYS.>>Brian: AT 623 YARDS LOOKS A WHOLE LOT BETTER RIGHT NOW. YOU’RE ABOUT TO WALK IN THERE AND SAY, FORGET THE YARDAGE, I DON’T CARE ABOUT IT IF IT’S A LOSS. RIGHT NOW, YOU CAN SEE DEZ BRYANT AND JASON WITTEN. DEZ BRYANT IS PULLING HIS SPOILED CHILD ROUTINE AGAIN.>>Dick: AND DON’T FORGET, HE SAID 1 IN 55 FOR TEAMS THAT WERE MINUS FOUR TURNOVERS SINCE 2011. 2-54 MAY BE THE NUMBER HERE. AS THE SCORING REVIEW CONTINUES. YOU’LL HEAR THE ROAR. YOU’LL HEAR THE ROAR.>>Brian: THAT IS AN UNBELIEVABLE HEADY PLAY BY MATTHEW STAFFORD. CALLED CLOCK, CLOCK, CLOCK. THE OFFENSIVE LINE DIDN’T BUZZ. THE COWBOYS STARTED — WHAT THE HECK, I’LL TAKE A SHOT. I’LL JUST REACH IT OVER THE GOAL LINE AND GET THE SCORE.>>Dick: NOW AKERS TRYING TO GET THE LIONS THE LEAD. REMEMBER, THERE ARE 12 SECONDS LEFT AND THE COWBOYS STILL HAVE TWO TIME-OUTS LEFT. HERE IS AKERS. HE GIVES DETROIT THE LEAD, 31-30. DID STAFFORD TELL HIS TEAM THAT HE WASN’T GOING TO CLOCK IT OR NOT?>>Brian: THE ACTION OF MATTHEW STAFFORD, HE’S CALLING CLOCK, CLOCK, CLOCK, WHICH IS WHAT YOU DO. THEY HAVE NO TIKOUTS. NORMALLY I THINK HE’S JUST TRYING TO THEN VERBIAGE WISE CHANGE IT TO A WEDGE. BUT LOOK, WATCH THE OFFENSIVE LINE HERE. THEY’RE NOT GOING OFF LIKE IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S GOING TO BE A WEDGE PLAY. THE CENTER IS DOMINANT. THANK GOODNESS. I DON’T KNOW IF HE KNEW WHAT STAFFORD — MAYBE HE JUST GAVE HIM THAT LITTLE PAT THAT SAYS I’M GOING OVER THE TOP. HEADY PLAY BY MATTHEW STAFFORD. I’LL BET YOU HE DID THAT A FEW TIMES IN SCHOOL BOY PLAY IN TEXAS.>>Dick: I’M SURE.

  2. Dez should just put on a tiara with the way he keep acting like a toddler in a beauty pageant. Bilick described it perfectly, "spoiled child" "temper tantrum"

  3. What makes this game an archtypal modern NFL game – Stafford erupted with 488 passing yards yet the Lions STILL busted out 143 yards on the ground (just under five yards per carry)

  4. Best part of the game for me was not the fact that the Lions won but @ 2:28:06: "Dez Bryant pullin' his spoiled child routine again." Lulz.

  5. "And the Lions will suffer a 27-24 loss to the Cowboys" "Two home losses in a row" "Cowboys will have a winning record for the first time"

    That commentary makes me laugh

  6. Detroit Lions the worst team in the NFL bad team NFL no good team in NFL

  7. Detroit Lions that Biggers fullest game ever in the NFL the worst team nobody bet no money on this team is f*** up team

  8. they're always they behind Detroit Lions is not good team don't ever watch this thing as f***-up team

  9. I remember watching this at my cousin's house with me, my cousin and another friend. We went nuts when that final play happened.

  10. I'm a Lions fan and I have to say props to Barry Sanders and Calvin Johnson for not pulling a "Kevin Durant" and staying loyal to their team.

  11. It's funny that they took so long to review the final touchdown, even though Stafford came back down and then ran to the end zone. So if it wasn't a touchdown when he extended, it was when he just walked there,, haha

  12. LMFAO I love how the announcers were going on and on and on about how the Cowboys were going to win and the Lions were going to lose with well over 1 minute remaining still.

  13. How many Total yards (Passing Yards and Rushing Yards Combined) does Matt Stafford have in that game??

  14. Best Lions game i got to see! All the fans that left early are not true lions fans, thats why u stay for your team. Detroit vs Everybody

  15. "To get 500 total yards… But the Lions are going to come off with a 27-24 loss…" Which really means "there's timeouts and 90 seconds left, but I'm just gonna call it now and make myself a fool." Then "I promise you you're gonna hear Jim Schwartz… Two losses at home…" Wow guys. Be giving up like crazy and talking about Dallas winning. Ha. You thought

  16. Thumbs up for having this edited without commercials. Must have taken forever. Watching this reminds me how grateful I should be that my Lions nowadays don’t miss tackles like they used to. For so many years the were the worst tackling team in the league. This video reminds me why Johnson is my favorite player of all time. Unfortunately, he pulled a Barry on us and Troyes WAY too soon. Don’t blame him though. Lions never would have traded him and he didn’t want to add more and more wear and tear on his body for a non playoff team year in and year out. Before this game Cowboys coach said they had the best WR in the league. Johnson put an end to that nonsense real quick. #OnePride

  17. There’s only one thing to do if your Matthew Stafford: Throw To Calvin Johnson Double Coverage: Throw to Calvin Johnson Triple Coverage: Throw to Calvin Johnson

  18. Its hard to believe they think dez bryants 1 catch for a five yard touchdown is equivalent to Calvins when hes all ready over a 100 yard receiving

  19. I had calvin johnson in fantasy that year lmfao whoever played me in week 8 probably raged so hard seeing calvin with like 50 points

  20. One of the best games in lions history hands down calvin Johnson 329 rec yards staffords fake spike the great comeback to win the game
