DETROIT (AP) -- Joey Harrington's face was splashed across the video boards while Billy Joel's "Piano Man" played -- a jab at the quarterback's piano playing.Harrington got the last laugh.
The Lions took a 10-0 lead over the Dolphins only to see Miami roar back to take a 27-10 win. It had been just two days short of five years since the Dolphins had last won a road game in which they faced a double-digit deficit. Back on Nov. 25, 2001, Dave Wannstedt's Dolphins overcame an 11-point deficit to beat the Bills 34-27 in Buffalo.
You have to go back 20 years to find the last time that a visiting team won a Thanksgiving Day game after having fallen behind by 10 or more points. In 1986, the Packers overcame a 14-point deficit to defeat the Lions 44-40 at the Pontiac Silverdome.
