New Orleans Road Woes Continue in Loss to Detroit

New Orleans Road Woes Continue in Loss to Detroit

iStock/Thinkstock(DETROIT) -- The New Orleans Saints road losing streak moves up to seven as they lost to the Detroit Lions 24-23.

The Saints blew a 23-10 fourth quarter lead with less than four minutes remaining that saw Lions quarterback Matt Stafford toss two touchdowns.

Stafford threw a short pass to Golden Tate that saw the receiver break past three defenders. Seventy-three yards later the Lions had cut the Saints lead to 23-17. 

Drew Brees tried to lead a game clinching drive but was intercepted by Lions defensive back Glover Quin who returned the ball to New Orleans 14 yard line with 3:10 remaining.

The Saints defense held after the interception but on a fourth down were called for defensive pass interference. With second life Stafford found receiver Corey Fuller for the go ahead score.

Head Coach Sean Payton was not pleased after the game that saw his team commit 12 penalties.

"I thought the penalties ended up hurting us," New Orleans coach Sean Payton said. "I wasn't happy with how that game was officiated. I'll leave it at that, and yet that wasn't the reason in the end."

The loss leaves New Orleans at 2-4 with a tough matchup next week as they host the Green Bay Packers.

Lions LB Tulloch Done for Season

Lions LB Tulloch Done for Season

Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(ALLEN PARK, Mich.) -- Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee Sunday in the Lions win over the Green Bay Packers. The injury occurred while Tulloch was celebrating a sack of quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter. Tulloch stayed in the game for one more play before leaving the field for good. “Obviously he’s disappointed,” Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’s been one of our fine team leaders, but obviously he’ll still be around helping our guys with a little instruction and things of that nature." The 29-year-old Tulloch has never missed a game since being drafted in 2006. Tulloch had 135 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and an interception last season for the Lions.

Lions Roll Past Giants on Monday Night

Lions Roll Past Giants on Monday Night

Leon Halip/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Matthew Stafford connected with Calvin Johnson twice in the first quarter for touchdowns and never looked back in the Lions 35-14 win over the New York Giants on Monday night.

Stafford passed for 346 yards with two touchdown passes to Johnson in the victory.

"I don't work on my moves a lot during practice, but I know I have to be better with my feet this year so that we can keep plays alive," Stafford said. "On both of the touchdown passes to Calvin, the offensive line got me a lot of time, and he was able to uncover himself and find somewhere open."

Johnson finished with seven receptions, 163 yards, and the two early touchdowns.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who had a career high 27 interceptions last season, added two on opening night and was 18 of 33 for 163 yards with a touchdown.

"No excuses. We played very poorly," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "We don't have a lot to be proud of here. Couldn't move the ball, couldn't stop them, turned the ball over, got into that business again. Got a punt blocked, so you name it. It was a nightmare performance."

Lions Table Ndamukong Suh Contract Talks

NFL via Getty Images(ALLEN PARK, Mich.) --  The Detroit Lions have announced that they will table contract discussions with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh until after the season.

"I think it's the right thing for us to do," Lions president Tom Lewand said Monday. "It's the right thing for the team. It's the right thing for everybody involved and it allows us to keep the focus where it belongs."

"We have a high degree of confidence that we can work out something that will be mutually satisfactory at the right time and the goal hasn't changed in the least," he added.

This year marks the last year of Suh's five-year rookie contract. Suh will have a cap number of $22.5 million this season.  The goal remains to ink the 27-year-old to a long-term deal after the season.

The Lions drafted Suh with the No. 2 pick in the 2010 NFL draft.

Calvin Johnson: ‘We Need to Win a Super Bowl’

Calvin Johnson: ‘We Need to Win a Super Bowl’

Leon Halip/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Detroit Lions Pro-Bowl wide receiver Calvin Johnson believes the team needs to come through big in 2014.

Johnson joined the NFL Network on Wednesday and said the expectations are simple, Super Bowl or bust.

"We need to win a Super Bowl," Johnson said. "That's the No. 1 thing. That's the No. 1 thing [and] should be for every team going into the beginning of the year."

"We're definitely in a place where we feel we could do that."

Johnson will be playing for new head coach Jim Caldwell after the Lions parted ways with Jim Schwartz in the offseason.

"It's an overall change and vibe here, and we love it," Johnson said of working under Caldwell. "We're going to go out and bust our butts every day because Jim is such a great guy, a great leader for our team. And he's helped bring us together, and we're doing a lot of stuff on our own off the field to keep that camaraderie going."

Johnson had 84 receptions for 1,492 yards and pulled in 12 touchdowns last season.
