Lions still undefeated

ARLINGTON, Texas Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions are for real, all right.

A week after turning a 20 point halftime deficit into an overtime win, the Lions provided further proof they a legitimate contender by turning a 24 point deficit into a 34 30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

The defence got it started with interceptions returned for touchdowns on consecutive drives midway through the third quarter, then Stafford and Johnson took over from there, hooking up for a pair of touchdowns in the final period, including a two yarder for the winning points with 1:39 left.

Detroit is 4 0 and has won an NFL best eight straight games. This also was its franchise record fifth straight road win, avenging a loss here last November that had been its NFL record 26th straight road loss.

Tony Romo and the Cowboys (2 2) continued to show there no lead and no deficit too big for them. They blew a 14 point fourth quarter lead for the first time in franchise history in the opener, and this was their largest lead blown in a loss in franchise history, according to STATS LLC, wiping out comeback wins the last two weeks. Dallas previous biggest blown fourth quarter lead was 21 against Washington on Nov. 28, 1965.

In addition to the two TDs Romo threw for Detroit defenders, he set up the Lions winning touchdown with another interception at the Dallas 40 yard line with 4:13 left.

This was a bizarre way for the Cowboys to end an NFL record streak of nine straight games decided by a field goal or less. The final play was wacky, too, with Felix Jones catching a short pass with no one around him on fourth and 20, then running out of bounds after only gaining eight yards.

Stafford took one last snap, dropped to a knee, then tucked the ball under his jersey for safekeeping. He never forget his first NFL game in his hometown, nor will many people on either side.

Stafford was 21 of 43 for 240 yards and two touchdowns, both to Johnson. He was intercepted once, on his first pass to Johnson, leading to Dallas first touchdown. Stafford wasn sacked but faced a lot of pressure at least, during the first 2 1/2 quarters.

Johnson caught eight passes for 96 yards, and tied Cris Carter NFL record of catching two TDs in four straight games. Johnson already was the first player in NFL history to do it in the first three games of a season.

Both of his scoring grabs were spectacular. There was a 23 yarder in which he reached up and over three Dallas defenders, then the game winner, which came against tight coverage on a play when the Cowboys had 12 defenders on the field.

Romo finished 34 of 47 for 331 yards, with three touchdowns. He was still playing with a cracked rib, wearing a protective vest and needing a painkilling injection.

But those things didn seem to bother him when he was on a roll of completing 13 of 14 passes, the only incompletion a clock stopping spike. That streak ended when his good buddy Bobby Carpenter made a leaping interception and a weaving 35 yard return for a touchdown, starting Detroit rally.

The Lions were still down 27 10, so it seemed harmless. Then, Detroit Chris Houston picked off a pass and returned it 56 yards for a touchdown, and things got very interesting, very quickly.

The Lions offence only had a field goal to that point, but the combination of Stafford and Johnson were tough to stop after that. Detroit also got a 51 yard field goal from Jason Hanson that put it within 30 27, just before Romo final interception.

Dez Bryant was among the early stars for Dallas, catching two touchdown passes before Johnson even had a single grab, and Laurent Robinson had seven catches for 116 yards.

Bryant only big moment in the second half was a diving catch overturned on a challenge by Detroit coach Jim Schwartz. Schwartz appeared to curse at Bryant after the play.

Cowboys have ruled out re

IRVING, Texas (AP) Greg Hardy won’t return for a second season with the Dallas Cowboys.

Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday night he has ruled out re signing the polarizing defensive end after one tumultuous year.

Jones, speaking to reporters after the second night of the NFL draft, acknowledged what appeared to be the case for weeks. The Cowboys didn’t want to bring back Hardy after several
Randy Gregory Jersey disruptions in 2015, some related to his domestic violence case in North Carolina.

After Hardy had a physical confrontation with special teams coach Rich Bisaccia late in a loss to the New York Giants, Jones called the player a leader on his weekly radio show. The owner even said he was interested in signing Hardy to a long term contract.

But Hardy’s production dropped significantly as the losses mounted in a 4 12 season. He had a strong start to the season after serving a four game suspension related to his domestic violence case. The NFL’s original ban of 10 games was reduced on appeal.

Before his run in with Bisaccia, Hardy twice had to answer to coach Jason Garrett, starting with an inappropriate tweet about the Sept. 11 attacks during last year’s draft.

Next was a headline grabbing comment about Tom Brady’s wife the first time he talked to Cowboys reporters, the week of his Dallas debut against New England following the suspension.

Dak Prescott Jersey of his bruised ex girlfriend from the domestic case were released
Darren McFadden Jersey online in nearly November. Less than a week later, the former Carolina Panthers star changed his Twitter bio with what amounted to a declaration of innocence and a claim of discrimination in the case. After yet another talk with Garrett, the bio changed.

Earlier this offseason, Garrett had quick and cryptic replies each time he was asked about Hardy. The club was mostly silent on the topic until Jones’ one word "no" when asked if Hardy was still a consideration with the Cowboys needing pass rushing help and not taking a defensive end with their first three picks.

The Cowboys signed Hardy to an incentive laded, one year contract worth $13.1 million, thinking he would be a key addition to a team with Super Bowl aspirations after winning the NFC East. But the season went south quickly when Dallas lost all six games after Tony Romo broke his left collarbone in Week 2, and 2014 All Pro receiver Dez Bryant missed five games after breaking his foot in the opener.
