The Lions sealed the game on a go-ahead touchdown pass by Matthew Stafford with only 20 seconds remaining.
The Hawks did gain 369 yards on Sunday, but it simply was not enough, as the defense simply could not hang with Detroit. The line had a tough time generating pressure and the secondary looked out of sync.
Stafford enjoyed success spreading the ball all over the field, as he hooked up with eight different receivers. Titus Young did most of the damage for Detroit, as he hauled in two touchdowns and finished with 100 yards receiving on nine catches.
The Hawks were in the game right up until the end, as the offense seemed to be moving the ball with ease. Russell Wilson finished with 236 yards and Marshawn Lynch finished with over 100 yards on the ground.
However, it was not enough for the Seahawks, who are now 1-4 on the road this year.
Here are the winners and losers from Sunday’s contest.
