Cowboys Vs. Lions: Megatron's Second Touchdown Gives Lions Late Lead

Calvin Johnson is back at it. 

Immediately after Jason Hanson kicked a 51 yard field goal to cut Dallas' lead to three, Tony Romo threw his third interception of the game. Needless to say, the Lions capitalized, scoring a touchdown on a 2 yard pass to Calvin Johnson on 1st-and-goal.

Dallas at one point led 27-3 in the third quarter, but a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns cut Dallas' lead down to 27-17. 

The Cowboys kicked a 23 yard field goal to extend their lead to 30-17, but since then, it's been all Lions. Detroit has now scored 17 unanswered points to take a 34-30 lead late in the fourth quarter. 

Romo will have under two minutes to atone for his mistakes and lead the Cowboys on a touchdown drive, otherwise the Cowboys will be 2-2 headed into their Week 5 bye week, with a date in New England looming large in Week 6.
