Driskel, Lions put up points, but defense was weak link

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions tried to upset Dallas with Jeff Driskel throwing passes and Bo Scarbrough carrying the ball.

Not exactly what this team planned at the beginning of the season.

Driskel threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns, and Scarbrough scored in his NFL debut, but despite a decent day from that no-name offense, the Lions lost 35-27 to the Cowboys on Sunday. Detroit has now lost six of its last seven games. Injuries to Matthew Stafford and Kerryon Johnson have hurt, but it was the defense that came up short against Dallas.
