Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions bounced back from their Week 7 loss with a victory in Week 8 over the Seattle Seahawks, winning by a score of 28-24.

Stafford had a monster game, throwing for 352 yards with three touchdowns and one interception and running for another score. 

Calvin Johnson was kept quiet most of the day by Richard Sherman, and he only caught three passes for 46 yards. While he struggled, Titus Young picked up the slack in a major way, catching all nine passes thrown his way for 100 yards and two touchdowns. 

Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson put the Seahawks up on top by a score of 24-28 with just over five minutes left when he threw a touchdown pass that was brilliantly caught by a laid-out Zach Miller in the back left portion of the end zone. 

Wilson finished the game with 236 yards, throwing two touchdowns and one interception.

Marshawn Lynch also had a big game, totaling 105 yards and a touchdown, but he only carried the ball 12 times. The Seahawks, as a team, only rushed the ball 19 times in this game, gaining 133 yards.

The Seahawks fell to 4-4 and will host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, while the Lions improved to 3-4 and will go on the road to face the Jacksonville Jaguars.
