New York Giants vs. Detroit Lions: Takeaways from Detroit's 23-20 Loss

The Detroit Lions fell to the visiting New York Giants 23-20 in overtime in front of a bitterly disappointed Ford Field crowd.  

Detroit came out flat in the first half before rebounding with a great second-half effort. However, poor execution and an untimely turnover cost the Lions in the end. 

The Lions' playoff hopes are now officially over, a stunning fall from a 6-3 start to the season. Detroit now sits at 7-8 and faces major questions as the season concludes. Chief among those is the fate of coach Jim Schwartz.

Detroit finishes the season with a trip to Minnesota. It will be the last game ever at the Metrodome, which will either prove inspirational or maudlin. It's a meaningless game for both teams. 

Here are the initial takeaways from the brutal loss.
