1. Week 3 vs. Baltimore Ravens
The Lions hung with the favored Ravens throughout the Week 3 game, and 10 fourth quarter points gave them a 17-16 lead with a little over a minute to go.
The Lions then sacked Lamar Jackson twice in the first three plays of Baltimore’s attempt at a winning drive, leaving them with a 4th-and-19 from their own 16-yard line. Detroit took a timeout, to seemingly set their defense and prepare to simply make sure they allowed less than 19 yards on the Ravens’ last chance.
But Jackson hit Sammy Watkins for a 36-yard pass, landing the Ravens at the Lions’ 48-yard line and taking their chances to win from nil to just above nil. The length of the play burned the clock down to seven seconds before Jackson could spike it. One more quick play, an incompletion, left three seconds on the clock as kicker Justin Tucker came out to attempt a 66-yard field goal. When Jackson spiked the ball, ESPN had the Lions’ win probability at 85 percent.
Tucker made the NFL record-setting kick to win the game for Baltimore, 19-17.
