Costly Win

9 Jan 2022

The Lions played inspired football on Sunday and beat the Green Bay Packers 37-30. Unfortunately, it cost Detroit the #1 pick in the NFL draft. With the Jags upsetting the Colts, the Lions appeared to have sewn up the pick when a 62-yard tight-end screen gave the Pack a late 30-27 lead, but Jared Goff drove the Lions 75 yards, D'Andre Swift bouncing it outside and scoring from 14 yards out to give the Lions the lead for good/bad.

On the GridCard, KDet047 (36) and LD (36) earned King of the Mountain. Last year, AutoPick tallied one Hamlin-Hopper for KDet047 but seven for LD who finished second in total points. Seven other players posted Qualifying Scores: GB55 (34), PGT winner dangerzone (34), macs detail (34), EricCinTX (33), Jodyann (32), btalkington (31), and Rico (29).

In Team GridCard play, LD led VBar over the OG Gridders 110-96. The PGT edged Team Mac 105-84 behind dangerzone. Team Collins dealt Team Detwiler their first loss 120-115 in a game where both teams scored well.
