Lions go into bye with mistake-filled setback against Saints

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions made so many mistakes at New Orleans they ruined a chance to go into a bye week with a win that would have put them in a tie atop the NFC North.

Matthew Stafford had five turnovers , three of which the Saints returned for scores, and Detroit gave up more than 200 yards to running backs in a 52-38 loss Sunday.

Detroit hadn't given up that many points since 2007, when it allowed the Philadelphia Eagles to score 56 points in a lopsided victory.
