Week 10 for NFL Ducks

Joey Harrington was rushed on nearly every passing down and as a result the Detroit Lions slipped below .500 for the year with a 23-17 overtime loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Harrington was 13-for-33, 121 yards, one interception and no touchdowns. Harrington had thrown at least one touchdown in the previous eight games. Detroit's ailing receiving corps was not much help to the cause. Roy Williams, who is recovering from his own injury, was the leading receiver with two catches for 64 yards.
