Lions Third In Row Ends Dolphins’ Home Season At 1-7

The Detroit Lions took advantage of two interceptions to score 17 points in the final 4:37 Sunday and rally past the reeling Miami Dolphins 34-27.

With the comeback, Detroit (5-10) has won three consecutive games for the first time since 2007. Miami (7-8), eliminated from the playoff race last week, finished 1-7 at home to match a franchise low.

Trailing 24-14 with five minutes to go, the Lions forced a punt, and on the first play Jahvid Best turned a short pass from Shaun Hill into a 53-yard touchdown.

Nathan Vasher’s interception set up a 47-yard field goal by Dave Rayner to tie the game with 2:44 remaining. Then came an interception by DeAndre Levy, who zigzagged 30 yards to the end zone for Detroit’s third score in less than 2 1/2 minutes.
