Detroit Lions: Takeaways from the Lions' 31-30 Win over Dallas

In one of the most exciting games since the last time these two teams met, the Detroit Lions eked out an amazing 31-30 win. Matthew Stafford sneaked across the goal line with 12 seconds left to culminate a last-minute comeback.

The Lions put up 623 yards of offense while holding the Cowboys to just 266. Calvin Johnson alone outproduced the entire Dallas offense.

With the thrilling victory, Detroit improves to 5-3 and stays in the thick of the NFC playoff race. The Cowboys fall to 4-4 but still lead the NFC East.

Detroit carries all this positive momentum into a bye week, where the walking wounded can get some much-needed rest. The Lions return to action in Week 10 at Chicago, which is 4-3 and on its bye this week. 

Here are my initial takeaways from the win over Dallas.
