Final score: Lions offense woeful early on, Newton leads Panthers to 27-24 victory

Detroit’s offense showed up late to the game between the Lions and Panthers. With the Carolina Panthers in town, it was a matchup between two 3-1 NFC teams looking to make a statement as they headed into the second quarter of their respective seasons. Ford Field was lively and into this one from the start as the Lions looked to stake their claim among the elite teams in the NFL. First half Detroit won the coin toss and wanted the ball to start this one, and it seemed like they wanted it for a reason. For the first play of the game, the Lions handed the ball off to Ameer Abdullah who...

The Lions suffered two notable injuries on Sunday.

Abdullah limped off the field, but remained on the sideline with his helmet on for the next drive. However, he did not return to the game and during the final two crucial drives of the game, Abdullah remained sidelined...
