Week 6 NFL Scores And Results: Detroit Lions Undefeated No Longer, Fall To San Francisco 49ers, 25-19

The Detroit Lions lost to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, ending a chance at perfection.

When the Detroit Lions face the Denver Broncos on Oct. 30, the former will no longer be an unbeaten team. On Sunday, the Detroit Lions fell to the San Francisco 49ers, 25-19. The Green Bay Packers are the lone unbeaten team at 6-0 after cruising to a 24-3 victory over the St. Louis Rams.

Still, the Lions will be a formidable opponent in two weeks. In this game Matthew Stafford was 28-of-50 for 293 yards and two touchdown passes. None of those touchdowns, however, wound up in the hands of Calvin Johnson, who finished with seven receptions for 113 yards.

The Lions had a 19-15 lead early in the fourth quarter and maintained that until the two-minute warning hit. Shortly thereafter, Alex Smith hit Delanie Walker for the game-winning touchdown on 4th-and-6, but it was certainly a close catch. Here's the video:


The play was reviewed, but there wasn't enough evidence to overrule the touchdown call on the field. As we see at the end of the video, it looks as though there is a minute amount of space in between Delanie Walker's knees and the ground just as he breaks the goal line.

The 5-1 Lions face the Atlanta Falcons next week before heading to Denver.
