Lions looking at titanic upset

Now that Tennessee has lost the chance at a 16-0 record, it has the chance to make a different kind of history.

CBS’ fine play-by-play man Jim Nantz, who will be calling Thursday’s Tennessee-Detroit game, already is pondering what it would mean for the Lions to win.

“Based on records, if 0-11 Detroit beats 10-1 Tennessee, you would have to throw this game into the argument of being one of the greatest regular-season upsets in the history of the National Football League,” Nantz said. “It would definitely have to be right up there, if not the biggest of all, if Detroit was able to spring that upset.

“Now to make this clear, I’m not comparing this to Namath and the Jets beating the Colts in Super Bowl III, or anything like that that has happened in the post-season. I’m dealing with records. Based on that, this would have to rank right up there.”
