JAMIE MOYER wanted to make it clear. So clear that he said it twice: "I'm not retired. I'm not retired," he said Wednesday at a news conference at the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament at Lake Tahoe, Nev. "I'm just kind of laying in the weeds and just trying to figure out what's going on. " The 49-year-old Moyer last pitched in the majors for the Rockies, where on May 16 he became the oldest pitcher to ever record a win in a 6-1 victory...

DETROIT - Matthew Stafford's second touchdown pass put Detroit ahead in the third period, and Jahvid Best's 88-yard run later in the quarter led the Lions to a 24-13 win over the Chicago Bears on Monday night. The Lions (5-0) are undefeated through five games for the first time since 1956. The defending NFC North champion Bears (2-3) are off to their worst start since 2007. They are three games behind Detroit and defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay in the division. Detroit and its fans were clearly fired up for the franchise's first Monday night game in a decade.

NEW ORLEANS - Drew Brees led a record-setting offense by throwing for 466 yards and three touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints poured it on in the second half for a 45-28 NFC wild-card victory over the Detroit Lions on Saturday night. New Orleans broke the postseason mark for total yards with 626, beating the record set 49 years ago. Brees hit on 33 of 43 passes while throwing for the most yards in a regulation playoff game. He had three completions of at least 40 yards.

MINNEAPOLIS - Staring at a 20-0 deficit as they trudged into the Metrodome locker room at halftime, the old Detroit Lions would have started making plans to leave town with yet another loss. In this young season, it is becoming abundantly clear that these are not the same old Lions. Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes in the second half to help Detroit get to overtime, and Jason Hanson kicked a 32-yard field goal to finish off a 26-23 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Lions at Bears 8:30 p.m., ESPN Line: Bears by 61/2. The skinny: Hard feelings? Bad blood? The Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions for the most part did their best to downplay the idea leading into Monday night's game. The Bears (4-1) are trying to solidify their spot at the top of the NFC North, while the last-place Lions (2-3) are trying to jump back into the race. "With anybody in our division, we're not going to like them, and they're not going to like us," Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said.

Finally, the Detroit Lions are winners. With rookie Matthew Stafford leading the way, Detroit ended a 19-game losing streak with a 19-14 victory over visiting Washington yesterday. The Lions (1-2) had not won since Dec. 23, 2007, and their skid matched the second longest in NFL history. "We've still got a long way to go, but we've got a quarterback, and that's a big piece of the puzzle," Lions vice chairman Bill Ford said. Stafford (21-for-36, 241 yards) threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Bryant Johnson in the first quarter and Detroit added a fourth-quarter score after a pass interference penalty.

DETROIT - After a decade of losing, the Detroit Lions are in the playoffs. And they made sure the San Diego Chargers are out. With their fans chanting "PLAYOFFS" for the final minutes, Detroit got there for the first time since 1999 as Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes in the first half to beat the Chargers, 38-10, on Saturday. The only team to lose all 16 games in a season (2008), the Lions (10-5) have won three straight after a 2-5 slump to earn a wild-card spot in the playoffs.

Only two men in the NFL have thrown more touchdown passes than Detroit's Matthew Stafford this season and their names are Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. That's a pretty good quarterback story even if few people in these parts are talking about it as the Eagles prepare for Sunday's big game with the Lions at Lincoln Financial Field. Eleven minutes passed Wednesday during a conference call with Philadelphia reporters before Detroit coach Jim Schwartz finally received his first question about Stafford.

JEFFREY LURIE made his way from locker stall to locker stall, alone. He was shaking hands, thanking players individually, easing their way through a difficult experience that was new for many of them. The Eagles' owner had lived it enough times, though. It seemed to come easily enough for him. Lurie had just left the coaches' locker room. What he said to them was between them, and what Chip Kelly thought when he was trying to get to sleep in the early hours of Sunday is not likely something he will share.

MYCHAL KENDRICKS leads the NFL with four fumble recoveries. This is not a major stat. In fact, Kendricks had no idea of his lofty status until a reporter informed him of it yesterday. "That's good," the Eagles' second-year linebacker said, clearly somewhat less than transformed by the news. So, falling on fumbles. Largely luck, or skill? "I think it's a mixture of both," Kendricks said. "You've got to be able to get there, but part of it is being at the right place at the right time, as well.

The snow certainly helped to slow down the potent Detroit passing game on Sunday, but the Eagles defense also did its share of strong work, especially against football's best receiver, the Lions' Calvin Johnson. Johnson had only three catches for 49 yards, which was a major reason the Eagles earned a 34-20 win over Detroit at Lincoln Financial Field. Johnson set the Lions team record for career receiving yards on a 33-yard reception late in the first quarter, but he did little damage after that.

DETROIT - Andrew Luck took full advantage of his last shot to lead the Indianapolis Colts to a stunning victory Sunday. Luck threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Donnie Avery with no time left to lift the Colts to a 35-33 comeback win over the Detroit Lions. With the final seconds ticking away, the rookie moved up in the pocket and flipped a short pass to Avery, who ran untouched into the end zone to complete a rally that started midway through the fourth quarter with the Lions up 12 points.

THE PLAY THAT really brought the Detroit Lions back to life, four snaps after Jeremy Maclin gave the Eagles a 23-13 lead, was a 57-yard Matthew Stafford pass to tight end Tony Scheffler. "I think it was just an extended play," said dime corner Brandon Hughes, who was covering Scheffler. "[Stafford] just got outside the pocket, and Scheffler was running 'seam.' I was just chasing him. He just ran at an angle [after the called play broke down]. I just tried to haul ass and catch him. Couldn't catch him. "Initially, it was good coverage.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - There were trick plays and long passes, busted coverages and broken returns, but on a wild day and in a crazy game, the Detroit Lions lost because they botched the most basic thing of all - an overtime snap. Shaun Hill replaced an injured Matthew Stafford late in the fourth quarter and rallied the Lions to two touchdowns in the final 18 seconds of regulation. But Hill lost a yard on a fourth-and-inches quarterback sneak that never should have been run as the Tennessee Titans handed the Lions their second straight loss, 44-41, at LP Field.
