DETROIT REMAINS PERFECT ON THE ROAD

LIONS 28, GIANTS 13

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The road to respectability for the Lions has been ... the road. How interesting for a team that went three years and an NFL-record 24 games without winning away from Motown.

Joey Harrington passed for two touchdowns, and Chris Cash made a crucial diving interception in the end zone late in the first half to lead Detroit.

"I feel like we can go in anywhere and play and compete," Harrington said after the Lions won for the third time in three road games.

"That's the type of attitude you have to have as a team, as a contender," he added. "We're right in the thick of things. We're not going to say this is good enough, we can be a contender next year because we are young. We're going to give it a shot and keep playing and hopefully things will fall for us."

Kevin Jones scored on a 2-yard run and Artose Pinner iced the game with an 8-yard scoring run as Detroit snapped a four-game winning streak for the Giants.

The loss also showed that even new coach Tom Coughlin could not change New York's woes after a bye week. The Giants have lost four straight, 8 of 9 and 13 of 16 since the NFL started giving teams weeks off in 1990.

"We didn't have any enthusiasm," Giants defensive end Michael Strahan said.
