ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have tied an NFL record and they're not proud of it.
Detroit blew a 10-point lead in their third straight game to match a dubious league mark in a 27-20 loss Sunday night at Green Bay.
The 2011 Minnesota Vikings, 1999 New Orleans Saints, 1991 Cleveland Browns, 1980 St. Louis Cardinals, 1952 Washington Redskins and the 1947 Green Bay Packers are the other teams in NFL history that have lost three in a row after leading by at least 10 points in each game, according to STATS LLC.
The Lions (4-9) have dropped five straight games overall - by an average of 5.2 points - to guarantee a losing record this season after winning 10 games and ending an 11-year postseason drought a year ago.
