Darren Sproles could be exception to Pro Football Hall of Fame rule

LaDainian Tomlinson’s 145 career rushing touchdowns rank second all time. His 13,684 career rushing yards rank fifth. He was named first-team All-Pro three times and selected to five Pro Bowls during his 11-year NFL career with the Chargers and Jets.

He has the Lions at 3-1 this season and the only loss was a 30-26 defeat to the Falcons when Stafford appeared to lead another winning drive only to see a Golden Tate touchdown on the final play overturned following a replay review.

Caldwell said Stafford stays “loose and aggressive” during crunch time and his clutch gene also helps Caldwell and his coaching staff remain calm because they’ve “been through it a few times.”

“The big thing is they understand, if we’re close, we’ve got a chance,” Caldwell said. “We’ve done it over time to where guys believe in that whole process. It doesn’t mean we’ll be able to do it every single game – we fell short a couple weeks ago – but, nevertheless, our guys always feel like we have a chance.

“When you’ve been through quite a few of them, I don’t get that nervous in those situations.”

Goff led a comeback from a 24-13 deficit in Sunday’s 35-30 win over the Cowboys. The game-winning moment was a 53-yard touchdown throw in the third quarter, a play on which Goff hit Gurley with a perfect pass in stride. That victory followed a 292-yard, three-touchdown pass performance from Goff in an exciting 41-39 win over the 49ers in Week 3.
