Three killer drives against the Lions

The final nails in the coffin in the game against the Lions came in the waning seconds of the game. On 1st & 10 from the 50 yard line, Matt Stafford completed a 9-yard pass and the Detroit receiver stepped out of bounds, setting up a Matt Prater game winning field goal.

But what really killed the Washington Football Team on Sunday afternoon took place in the first half.

The first drive of the game

Washington got the ball first and put together a pretty drive, moving from their own 25 yard line to the Detroit 14-yard line, where the ball was in easy field goal range and the team faced short yardage on second down.
