Lions tie NFL record, blowing 3 big leads in a row

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have tied an NFL record.

They're not proud of it.

Detroit blew a 10-point lead in a third straight game to match a dubious league mark in a 27-20 loss Sunday night at Green Bay.

The 2011 Minnesota Vikings, 1999 New Orleans Saints, 1991 Cleveland Browns, 1980 St. Louis Cardinals, 1952 Washington Redskins and the 1947 Green Bay Packers are the other teams in NFL history that have lost three in a row after leading by at least 10 points in each game, according to STATS LLC.

The Lions have dropped five straight games to guarantee a losing record this year. They might have a chance to snap the skid Sunday on the road against the equally lowly Arizona Cardinals.
