Matt Prater made a 59-yard field goal which brought the Detroit Lions to a 30-27 win over Washington on Sunday. QB Matthew Stafford finished 24 of 33 for 276 yards and threw three touchdown passes without a turnover for the first time this season.
The Lions had lost nine games previously, including games to the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints earlier this year when they lost after leading by 17, 11 and 14 points, respectively. The Lions allowed three straight Washington touchdown drives of 82, 84 and 61 yards.
Next up: Washington will hosts the Cincinnati Bengals, while the Lions play the Carolina Panthers on the road.
