Instant reaction time.  We’ll have a full recap ready in about an hour. 

In a close game that looked like blowout on paper, the Colts had one more chance to win with the Lions at 3rd and 7.  There could have been more time left, had Cassius Vaughn not committed pass interference on a deep pass to Calvin Johnson, in whichthe giant receiver never realized the ball had been thrown. 

The Lions gained 451 yards on offense, led by Calvin Johnson with 13 catches for 171 yards on twenty targets. 

Andrew Luck had a tough day. 

With the final seconds, and all hope, ticking away…What? WHAT?!  Luck to Avery!




Full recap to come within the hour.
