NFL

The Lions fell to the Seahawks 37-31 in overtime yesterday. Detroit trailed by 10 after Tre Brown returned a Jared Goff pass 40 yards for a touchdown with eight minutes remaining in regulation. But, Goff engineered a 75-yard touchdown drive to tie the game with three minutes to go, and Riley Patterson kicked a 38-yard field goal as the fourth quarter expired to force the extra period. Geno Smith’s second touchdown pass of the day to Tyler Lockett was the game-winner. Detroit running back David Montgomery left the game in the third quarter with a leg injury.

The Packers led by a dozen at the end of the third quarter, but the Falcons came from behind to eke out a 25-24 victory yesterday. Jordan Love threw three touchdown passes.

NHL

Former Red Wings coach Mike Babcock has been pushed out as head coach of the Blue Jackets just a few weeks after starting the job. Players reported that Babcock asked them to share personal photos from their phones. That, combined with complaints about inappropriate behavior when he was coach of the Maple Leafs, was enough to persuade team ownership to pull the plug.
