    i only saw the 4th quarter, but with my eyes I saw why Atlanta is 1-6. First why should a team with not much success at making plays pass up an almost sure 3points and go on 4th and whatever. They kick and go up by 4, forcing the Lions to score a td to win. the play they ran had horrible results. (those 3 points could have been enough to win). Secondly, why did they even try to run the ball forward when they accidently scored a td. Even if they took some losses they were close enough for the winning fg and very little time on the clock. On the Lions drive, Galloday made 2 great catches to keep the drive going. Just wondering...........Is Amendola a hot head? That's 2 un-sportsman like penalties he has taken after the play at the worst possible times. JMO

    Not kicking the field goal was a head scratcher. But Atlanta is a bad football team and they did what bad teams do. The Lions capitalized on their mistakes and Stafford played great during that last minute drive for the win.

    I'd love to see Stafford's stats for just the last 2 minutes of games.
