The Detroit Lions are averaging a little more than two touchdowns in the fourth quarter this season. Finding that same production before the start of the final period has proved elusive.

The Lions have scored 73 points in the fourth quarter this season, trailing only Denver's 79, and both victories came after final-period rallies. Detroit scored a pair of late touchdowns to upend St. Louis in its opener and had a 17-point fourth quarter to force overtime before winning at Philadelphia last Sunday.

The same offense has produced just 50 points in the first three quarters five games into the season.
