Vikings-Lions game replay

  • Updated: December 11, 2011 - 11:50 PM

PLAY OF THE GAME

When: Fourth quarter, 9 seconds left.

Score: Lions led34-28.

Situation: The Vikings had first-and-goal at the Detroit 1.

The play: QB Joe Webb hesitated on what could have been a pass, scrambled and fumbled while being sacked by DeAndre Levy. A face mask by Levy went uncalled, and the ball was kicked all the way to the Vikings 43, where Detroit's Cliff Avril recovered.

The result: If the penalty had been called, the Vikings would have had another play, first-and-goal inside the Detroit 1 with no time left.

NOT IN THE BOXSCORE

QB breakthrough

The Vikings have 155 100-yard rushing games in their history, but Sunday's was the first by a quarterback. Joe Webb had seven carries for 109 yards, most of them on a 65-yard TD run. Fran Tarkenton had 99 yards rushing on 11 carries in a Nov. 5, 1961, game against the Rams, and that stood as the team record for QBs for 50 years.

MANO-A-MANO

Vikings CB Cedric Griffin vs. Lions WR Calvin Johnson

Who won?
