Lions Prevail to Remain a Contender in the NFC North
The Detroit Lions kept their playoff hopes alive in week 13 with a 20-15 victory over the New Orleans Saints. The Lions, now 9-3, led 14-3 entering the fourth quarter, but a furious rally by the Saints almost reversed the result.

Key to the victory was the Lions’ run defense, which limited the Saints to a mere 48 yards on the ground. Saints quarterback Drew Brees passed for 303 yards in the losing effort.
