The Detroit Pistons’ offense went cold again last night, as they lost to the lowly Philadelphia 76ers 97-79. Marcus Morris scored 28 for Detroit, but couldn’t lift his team out of the hole they dug themselves into when they scored just 12 points in the first quarter. The Pistons visit the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday evening. Hear the broadcast on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed last night’s game with a bruised knee. He’s expected to be back in the lineup on Wednesday.


Matthew Stafford led yet another fourth quarter comeback drive, as the Detroit Lions edged the Chicago Bears 20-17 yesterday. Playing with a glove to protect an injured finger on his passing hand, Stafford threw two interceptions. With three-and-a-half minutes remaining he completed a 76-yard scoring drive by running the ball into the end zone from seven yards out. The Lions remain two games ahead of the Packers and Vikings in first place in the NFC North Division.

Stafford will probably need the glove for the rest of the season. The injury is described as a dislocation of the middle finger on his throwing hand, with some torn ligaments. It happened during a broken play late in the first quarter.


The Green Bay Packers kept pace with a 38-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Aaron Rodgers completed 18 of 23 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns. The Green Bay defense held Seattle without a touchdown until the fourth quarter.

In last night’s NFL game, the New York Giants edged the Dallas Cowboys 10-7.

The Baltimore Ravens visit the New England Patriots in tonight’s contest. Hear the broadcast on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.
