Throughout this week, we'll have various Detroit Lions talk about the best game they ever played in -- college or pro.
All the players I spoke with for this -- one for each day of the week -- ended up going with an NFL game.
Tuesday continues with wide receiver/returner Jeremy Ross.
Date: Oct. 27, 2013
Opponent: Dallas Cowboys, at Ford Field
Score: Detroit 31, Dallas 30.
How Ross fared: Ross had one catch for seven yards. He also got his first shot at returning kicks for Detroit, taking one return 44 yards. I was actually somewhat surprised by Ross' selection considering the game in Philadelphia later in the year where he returned a kick and a punt for a touchdown in the same game.
Why this game: "The Cowboys game last year. It was close, last drive. We’re going down, Matt Stafford, savvy play, jumps over the pile and gets the touchdown. That was one of the best games I’ve ever played in. That was an unreal situation to be a part of that. It was awesome, man, to be able to be part of a game like that where we bounced back from challenges and stuff and still being able to come out on top in the last minute, last seconds. That was special."
