Lions rally for 24-23 win over Saints

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions have won back-to-back games without Calvin Johnson, perhaps the most encouraging sign yet that coach Jim Caldwell is making significant progress in his first season at the helm.

The most recent victory wasn't easy. The Lions needed a spectacular catch-and-run by Golden Tate and an interception from Glover Quin to overtake the New Orleans Saints 24-23 on Sunday.

"I think you learn a little bit about your team as you go, I really do," said Caldwell, who replaced the fired Jim Schwartz in the offseason as Detroit's coach. "This is the first one that we've had like this one, you know, to have to really come from behind and get it done with some big plays.
