Cowboys' Demarcus Lawrence recovers two fumbles in final 2:10
Cowboys rookie defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence recovered a Lions fumble with just over two minutes to go, and had he had fallen on the ball, the game would have been over. Didn't happen.
Didn't happen. Instead, Lawrence tried to advance the ball, fumbling it in the process. It was recovered by the Lions, who continued their drive for the game-winning score.
That led to countless tweets pointing out that Lawrence's position coach is ... Leon Lett.

But unlike Lett's touchdown that wasn't, Lawrence's story has a happy ending. With seconds on the clock, he strip-sacked Matthew Stafford AND recovered another Lions fumble, sealing the Cowboys' come-from-behind playoff win.
