Late game slide dooms Cowboys in loss to Lions

Late game slide dooms Cowboys in loss to Lions
KTSM
Dallas Cowboys
Sunday, October 27, 2013 - 10:44pm

One step forward, one step back. Too many steps for the Dallas Cowboys Sunday in Detroit. Matthew Stafford lunged over a pile of linemen as well as the goal line, to lift the Detroit Lions to a last-second, 31-30 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Detroit's now 5-3 overall after overcoming four turnovers and a ten-point deficit in the fourth quarter, while Dallas falls to 4-4, but still a game ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles (3-5) in the NFC East.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who won the game with a late quarterback sneak, said the sneak may have surprised the Cowboys and his own teammates. "I was gonna spike it...kinda readin'...it was a feel thing. I was yelling spike they knew I was yelling spike I saw linebackers kinda standing like this...our guys didn't fire off just stood off I looked down and we were that far...shoot I'm gonna go get that."

Calvin Johnson caught 14 passes for 329 yards...second most in NFL history. "It's crazy, you know, shoot...we got one-on-one coverage, you know we was able to hit on a lot...I don't know what our percentages were but we were able to hit on a lot of deep passes, intermediate, we were all over the place."

Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz was asked about Stafford's decision to dive into the end zone with 12 second left. "There's a lot of things he has the option to do and if he can get that ball over and they're not stacked in behind him we wanna get that ball in there."

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said the team doesn't have time to dwell on a tough loss. "Obviously it was a disappointing loss for our football team but it really doesn't matter now what matters is what we do now it is very important we understand that and learn from what happened today and just move forward we have a new challenge this week and get our minds focused on that."

Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo, who's familiar with late-game collapses, said every loss feels the same. "Anytime you lose it literally feels the same way every time, and I know obviously a last-second loss will eat at you...but at the same time losing by ten over seven...either way you gotta go back and do things better."

A camera caught Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant ranting to his teammates during and after the game, but in the locker room, Bryant said there was no tension at all. "My passion is always positive," said Bryant, who had three catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns on six targets in the loss. "It's always positive. It's going to remain the same way. I'm not saying anything wrong. I'm not saying anything bad. It's all positive. That's just what it is."

11:00am Sunday November 2, Cowboys host the Minnesota Vikings.
