Week 4 NFL Scores: Dallas Cowboys Blow Huge Lead, Lose 34-30 To Detroit Lions

The Dallas Cowboys were leading the Detroit Lions, 27-3, at one point on Sunday. How could they lose, you ask? Well, they did just that. Calvin Johnson caught two touchdown passes, including the go-ahead score inside of two minutes, and the Lions stunned the Cowboys, 34-30, in the most shocking Week 4 NFL score thus far.

The Cowboys looked to be rolling to an easy win early in the third quarter when Tony Romo found Jason Witten for a touchdown. But then, bad Romo returned. First, Romo was picked off by former teammate Bobby Carpenter, who returned the pass for a touchdown to cut the margin to 27-10. On the very next possession, Romo was picked off by Chris Houston, who returned the ball for another touchdown to cut the lead to 27-17. Johnson then took over, catching a 23-yard touchdown to cut the lead to 30-24, then a one-yard touchdown to put Detroit ahead for good.

The Cowboys are now 2-2, a full game behind the Redskins in the NFC East standings.
