The Detroit Lions had 269 yards of total offense in the first half, but are losing, 14-13. Mistakes, like Ndamukong Suh having an illegal block on an interception touchdown, turnovers, and penalties have conspired against them. It could have been worse.

This ball ricocheted off the line as Joique Bell tried to dive for the end zone. The play was ultimately overturned after the initial ruling was a fumble.
