Another bad start
Lions center Dominic Raiola was on a roll following the 31-24 loss to Arizona. The Lions were down 17-0 at the half. Thats amazing in itself because it could have been much worse. They came up a touchdown short at the end but showed more determination in the second half.
We came in here (at halftime), people were getting cussed out, everybody was (ticked) off, nobody was happy about that first half. I said, 'Lets go do something we never did, lets finish a game,' Raiola said.
Close doesnt help. I dont think anybody out there thought we could come back. Weve got to get used to not just coming back, but being in those games form the beginning, he added.
That pretty much says it.
