Lions roar, Cowboys choke. Both happened.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- One of the worst chokes I've ever seen. One of the best comebacks I've ever seen. This game between Dallas and Detroit was both.

Detroit won 34-30, but only because Dallas lost 30-34. Detroit was great in the second half after falling behind 27-3, but Dallas was miserable. Not sure how to write one story without writing the other. I'm going to try here in a few minutes.

Tony Romo exemplifies all of it. Great for Dallas in the first half. Chokingly, gaggingly bad in the second. But he had help. Whoever called plays for Dallas. Whoever played in the secondary.

Calvin Johnson was the flip side to this. He won this game for Detroit by being the best player on the field. Can't wait to write this thing. Here I go!
