This one will be remembered for the controversy at the end. The refs completely blew this one when they failed to call a penalty on Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright batted the ball out of the end zone after Lions receiver Calvin Johnson fumbled.

Doug Baldwin had three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown. Calvin Johnson had seven catches for 56 yards for the Lions.
