If I remember correctly, there were 1 or maybe even 2 missed field goals and Calvin Johnson dropped a touchdown that he catches 90% of the time. Even if you give the Lions another 13 points, that's STILL sadly the second best job the defense had done all year.
What do you guys think? Is it possible to recapture that magic from that game? My theory is that the Detroit tackle that faced Mario Addison (2.5 sacks that day I think?) gameplanned all week against Greg Hardy and was caught with his pants down against a backup. (Think about how Panthers defenses of yesteryear would always make rookie and backup QBs look like prime Peyton Manning against them with no film.)
To those of you that can remember or have access to NFL Rewind or whatever, what do you think was different against Detroit?
