Lions headed to playoff

Lions headed to playoff
The Detroit Lions have something different to look forward to this December. The Lions are headed to the playoffs for the first time since the 1999 season.
"This is an accomplishment," coach Jim Schwartz said. "It's a big step for our team and our organization."
Detroit Lions clinched a postseason berth with a resounding 38-10 win over San Diego on Saturday, and now the Lions can sit back and contemplate any number of possible first-round match-ups. There's one more regular-season game, at Green Bay next weekend, but Detroit will be a wild card win or lose.
The last time the Detroit Lions made the NFL playoffs, Barry Sanders was their star.
They’re back, for the first time in 12 years, earning an NFC wild-card berth by beating San Diego Charger 38-10, knocking the Chargers from contention Saturday.
“This is an accomplishment,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “It’s a big step for our team and our organization.”
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford dropped back 39 times in the game, resulting in 36 pass attempts and three sacks allowed by the offensive line. None of those sacks were on Backus.
The performance by Backus marks the second week in a row he's shut out a quality AFC pass rusher. Against Kamerion Wimbley (seven sacks) the week before, Backus again pitched a shutout, allowing just a single quarterback pressure.

"It's good to clinch," said Deion Branch, who caught the touchdown pass from Brady, "but not by the way we played. It's not the way you want to do it."
The Patriots trailed 17-0 at halftime then scored on their first five possessions in the second half. The Miami Dolphins helped when Matt Moore lost a fumble at his 38-yard line then threw an interception that Devin McCourty picked off at the Patriots 2.

Miami (5-10) lost for the third time in eight games after opening at 0-7 and is 1-1 under Todd Bowles, who took over when Tony Sparano was fired.
But still, after 20 years, they still couldn't beat the Packers in Wisconsin, even though the Pack played a backup QB, half of their safeties, and were missing an all-pro linebacker. Whatup, yo?
