Wishes do come true

The Detroit Lions pulled off a last-minute – actually, last second – victory this afternoon and beat the New Orleans Saints 13 to 12.

In the final minutes of the game, Detroit trailed the Saints 12-10. Jason Hansen kicked a 39-yard field goal to win the game. This was the 16th time in Hansen’s career that he’s kicked a game winner.

The Lions finish the year 5-10.

UPDATE: Jack has informed me that there are 16 games in the season, when I thought there were only 15. Therefore, we’ll have to wait and see how the Lions actually finish…

    Um, sorry but there are actually SIXTEEN games in an NFL season, so you’ve jumped the gun a bit in declaring how the Lions finish. One more game to go…

    Thanks, Jack. I obviously know nothing about football.
