It was far from pretty but the Detroit Lions took advantage of some costly mistakes by the Los Angeles Chargers as they came away with a 13-10 win at Ford Field.
During the game, Lions kicker Matt Prater missed an extra point and then a short field goal, prompting Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (who is holding out), to post the following tweet.
Dear lions kicker, hahaha drinks on me after the game 😂😂😂 !!!

Well, call it what you want but Gordon managed to jinx his team as the Chargers own kicker missed a pair of field goals, allowing the Lions to come back and win the game.
Following the win, Lions safety Quandre Diggs caught wind of Gordon’s tweet and he decided to fire back.
Drinks on me for yo kicker!! Nice doing business! https://t.co/SnwU0Lmpc1
