Lions turn around season?

There's a new group of comeback kids in town.

After a 36-28 victory Friday against the Toronto Argonauts, the B.C. Lions (3-4) have now successfully ground out two wins despite giving up an early lead.

While trailing 9-0 to start the game, it took the Lions until the second quarter before they managed to get on the scoreboard. And it wasn't until late in the third quarter before they actually did some damage.

In the end, three Jarious Jackson touchdowns, a field goal, and a Ryan Phillips' fumble return sealed the deal in another come-from-behind win.

So is this a sign the Leos are finally finding ways to win or a slight that shows B.C. does not come out prepared to play?

The Lions have failed to get on the scoreboard first in six of their seven games, with the first four of those resulting in losses.

The lone matchup where B.C. earned the first lead - a 16-0 start was during week three - when they defeated the Edmonton Eskimos 40-22.

With an upcoming home game Friday that could have early playoff implications, the trend of falling behind has to stop.

Currently last in the Western Division, B.C. will have to finish ahead of Winnipeg, this week's opponent, and Toronto in the East if they hope to reach the postseason as per the crossover rule.

But in order to make that feat easier, the Lions must come out ready to put points on the board early and take a big and decisive lead.
