Lions clobbering Chargers at the half

Posted by ttwentyman on December 24, 2011 – 6:31 pm

The Lions are absolutely clobbering the Chargers at halftime.

They have a commanding 24-0 lead, their largest of the season, and are halfway to securing their first playoff berth since 1999.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has completed 21-of-26 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns in the first half. His quarterback rating is 146.8.

He’s thrown scores to tight end Brandon Pettigrew (7 yards), running back Kevin Smith (3) and receiver Calvin Johnson (14).

The Lions defense has allowed just 93 yards in the first half.

Stafford broke Scott Mitchell’s franchise record for passing yards in a season (4,338) on a 30-yard pass to receiver Nate Burleson in the second quarter.

    Real nice work Lions. YOU silenced the naysayers and their Christmas will be blue to the bone. Not only that, you have done superb at sweeping all of your AFC opponents. The Chiefs, Broncos, and Chargers games were decimations and slaughters. Now you’ll be a house of fire come January. Wishing you and your families and Lions fans a nice/safe blessed Merry Christmas. You got the best Christmas present this year-a trip to the playoffs and possibly the Super Bowl. See you in January. GO LIONS!

    Well Done Saturday!!! Y’all have made this season exciting! I was totally impressed with the game against the Chargers! Not only dd you play as a team but kept the penalties to an absolute minimum which is showing poise and maturity! I’ve been a fan for 45 years and this is the most complete team I’ve seen. Keep up the Great Work! There is no one that can stand toe to toe with Y’all when you play like that! I look forward to the playoffs and the very real possibility of the Superbowl! God Bless and Merry Christmas to Y’all!

    What a great Christmas present for all of Lions nation!! As I sat there last night and watched the celebration of players walking around the stadium allowing the fans to truly touch and feel the hands of the players they’ve cheered for all of these years, I felt tears coming down my cheeks as I sensed all of the prior years frustrations seem to flow out and be cleansed. I hope that for Dominic, Jeff, Jason and the others this will be the cleansing for them as they turn a new chapter in Detroit Lions football history. Merry Christmas to all of our guys and especially to the Fords, the Mayhews, and coach Scwhartz and his staff for a season not to forget. And they are not done yet!! Gooooooooo Lions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
