Lions Break 26 Game Road Losing Streak
The Detroit Lions erased some painful memories by ending the longest road losing streak in NFL history. Dave Rayner’s third field goal, a 34-yarder with 9:51 left in overtime, gave Detroit a 23-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and stopped a three-year skid at 26 games on Sunday. The Lions (4-10) triumphed on the road for the first time since Oct. 28, 2007, when they won 16-7 at Chicago. The Lions also have a modest two game winning streak heading into next week’s tilt with the Dolphin’s in Miami.
