Detroit Lions Scores
October 17, 2011 by staff
Detroit was to remain undefeated, while San Francisco wanted his third away victory of the year and the validation that they really are. And in a defensive duel Motown, which was the 49 that finally triumphed, pulling the Lions undefeated with a score of 25-19.
San Francisco lost the ball on their first offensive play of the game as Kyle Vanden Bosch stripped the ball to the right of the hand of Alex Smith from behind the establishment of the Lions very well in the red zone leading to a field goal . Brandon Pettigrew caught a touchdown pass from Matt Stafford is short for 10-0 early, and he was seeking, as it could be a long afternoon.
Luckily, Frank Gore led the Niners in the second quarter with a one-yard touchdown, making the score 10-7, despite the war of attrition between the two defenses was just the beginning. Some were exchanged punts, then rookie Aldon Smith said in making contact with the safety of Gore Matt Stafford to make the score 10-9. Then, of course, a couple of punts.
The Lions added a field goal by Jason Hanson early in the third quarter to regain the lead 13-12, despite the Niners are knocking on the door after Frank Gore opened a 55 yard penalty, including a 15-yard neck horse on top of it. Unfortunately Delanie Walker could not hold a pass from Alex Smith, leading to another field goal by David Akers to make it 15-13.
Matt Stafford started the fourth quarter with a 5-yard TD Nate Burleson, but could not get the 2-point conversion to make it a lead of 19-15 in Detroit. But with less than two minutes left Delanie Walker caught a 6-yard, fourth touchdown pass from Alex Smith to take the lead 22-19. David Akers added a late field goal further, sealing the fate of the Lions, giving up your 0 to 49.
In a game that had 17 total punts and nearly 600 total yards of offense between the two, the Niners red zone defense was amazing, keeping Detroit’s potent offense in check most of the afternoon, and Mega Tron Calvin Johnson in the end zone. The Niners recorded five sacks compared to two for the defense of the Lions story, but linked to the league high this year with 15 penalties for 120 yards.
The last team on the West Coast have three wins in 1996 this was the Niners, who move to 5-1 for the first time since 1998. I think it’s safe to say we are back.
