LIONS FALL IN A CLOSE ONE TO KANSAS CITY

DETROIT, MI. (YJM)- THE LIONS WERE ONE OF THE HOT TEAMS EVERYONE WAS TALKING ABOUT TO START THE 100TH SEASON OF THE NFL. AT 2-0-1 AND WITH KANSAS CITY COMING TO THE MOTOR CITY IS OFF TO A HOT START AT 3-0; THINGS STARTED TO CHANGE WITH EVERYONE SAYING THAT QB MATTHEW STAFFORD AND THE LIONS DIDN’T HAVE A CHANCE AGAINST THE REIGNING MVP PATRICK MAHOMES AND THE CHIEFS OF KANSAS CITY…..THAT’S UNTIL ON SUNDAY, LIONS DREW FIRST BLOOD GOING UP TO A 10-0 LEAD ON A 5 YD TD CONNECTION FROM STAFFORD TO TE T.J. HOCKENSON AND MATT PRATER FG AT THE END OF 1 QTR.

BUT HERE COMES THE CHIEFS, AFTER A 1 YD TD BY LeSEAN McCOY AND TWO MADE FG’s BY KICKER HARRISON BUTKER KC TIED THE GAME AT 13 ALL AT THE HALF. COACH MATT PATRICIA IS FEELING CONFIDENT IN HIS CHANCES OF THIS CONTEST THUS FAR,….KEY, KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING. BOTH OF THESE TEAMS EXCHANGED SCORING BLOWS IN THE 3RD…KC (7 )WHEN BASHAUD BREELAND RECOVERED A LIONS FUMBLE FOR A 100 YD TD RETURN, DET (10) STAFFORD TO WR KENNY GOLLADAY FOR 9 YDS AND AT THE END THREE, DETROIT IS UP 23-20.

WITH INJURED LIONS ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE THE 4TH PROVED TO BE WHERE KC QB PATRICK MAHOMES HAS EARNED HIS REP IN THE LEAGUE, WITH DETROIT UP 30-27, .24 SECS ON THE CLOCK, NO TIME OUTS….. EXECUTED THE FINAL DRIVE ENDING WITH RB DARRELL WILLIAMS 1 YD TD SCORE PUTTING THE CHIEFS UP FOR THE WIN KEEPING THEM UNDEFEATED AT 4-0. DETROIT FANS SUFFERED A HEARTBREAKING LOST 34-30.

KC QB PATRICK MAHOMES (WIN) WENT 24/42, 315 YDS.- DET QB MATTHEW STAFFORD (LOST) WENT 21/34, 291 YDS, 3TDS.- RECEIVING: KC TRAVIS KELCE: 7 REC. 85 YDS,- DET KENNY GOLLADAY 5 REC. 67 YDS 2 TDS. DETROIT WON A LOT OF FANS OVER ON SUNDAY VS KANSAS CITY, THEY WASN’T EXPECTED TO WIN SUNDAY’S BATTLE BUT THEY PLAY WITH POISE, INTEGRITY TOWARDS EACH OTHER, DETERMINATION, HEART, AND UNITY. DESPITE THE LOST COACH PATRICIA BELIEVES THAT IF THEY CAN GET HEALTHY ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE THEY GOT A TRUE SHOT AT NOT ONLY THE NFC NORTH DIVISION…..BUT MAKING THE PLAYOFFS AS WELL.
