The Detroit Lions became the second team since 2011 to win an NFL game despite turning the football over four times. Dallas decided to give Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson one more try with the ball with 1:02 left in the game only needing a touchdown to win.
Megatron and Stafford orchestrated a game-winning touchdown drive that saw Johnson catch a ball from No. 9 at the 1-yard line. Stafford then decided to call a fake-spike quarterback sneak for the game-winning touchdown.
In what looked like a run-of-the-mill game at halftime with a score of 10-7, Ford Field's scoreboard lit up in a hurry after the break. The Lions will enter their bye week 5-3 with some significant time to focus on this big win and how to hold onto the football.
Dallas drops to .500, at 4-4, but still leads in the NFC East thanks to the New York Giants' win over Philadelphia. This loss will be just as, if not more difficult, to swallow for Big D as its loss to Denver two weeks ago.
