Both the Lions and the Cowboys are 4-3 and trying to make a return trip to the playoffs this season and Dallas linebacker Sean Lee has done everything he can to give his team the advantage. Lee recorded his second interception of the game late in the first half as Detroit was driving and Tony Romo hit Dez Bryant for a 5-yard touchdown a few plays later to give the Cowboys a 10-7 lead, which is where the score stands at halftime.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford looked poised to lead his team to another score as they led 7-3 in the second quarter, but Lee's interception was run back 74 yards to setup Romo with the short field to score. Lee intercepted Stafford in the first quarter as well, keeping his team in the game as the Detroit defense has done a great job of containing the high-powered offense of Dallas.
Romo is just 8-of-17 for 66 yards and the Lions have out-gained the Cowboys 254 yards to 96. However, thanks to Lee and the Dallas defense, the Cowboys still lead by a field goal with a half to go.
Perhaps a bit overshadowed due to Lee's big game, Lions receiver Calvin Johnson has 156 yards.
