The Detroit Lions went 80-yards for the game-winning touchdown with a little over a minute left in Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys down six points. Head coach Jim Schwartz was a happy man after the game to say the least, and let some of the excitement out by tossing his headset.
Here’s the game winning touchdown by Matt Stafford, who ended up scoring twice on the play.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Cowboys are in position to win the NFC East and make the playoffs. Dallas needs to take a step forward this season and it starts with actually making the playoffs.
The Lions are still trying to establish themselves as a legitimate team in the NFC. They have the QB and a better than average running game. The offensive line has been a pleasant surprise with three new starters...
So exactly how big was the Cowboys late game collapse against the Lions on Sunday afternoon? Here’s the numbers…
The Cowboys quite literally had a 99% chance of winning the game late in the 4th after Stafford turned the ball over on downs with 1:33 left on the clock.
Deadspin reported the following mathematical conundrum:

The high was 75 points between the Packers and Vikings and the low was just 22 points between...
Detroit wide receiver Ryan Broyles is dealing with another season-ending injury.
Coach Jim Schwartz says Broyles has a ruptured Achilles tendon and will have surgery Tuesday. Broyles was hurt in Sunday's 31-30 win over Dallas.
Broyles' rookie season in 2012 was halted when he went down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He also tore the ACL in his...
ESPN “analyst” Cris Carter is known for his ridiculous hyperbole. However, his comments on Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson this morning actually were rather prescient. He pretty much predicted the huge breakout game to be had this afternoon. Calvin Johnson, or Megatron as the kids call him is great at football. But when you read Carter’s comments on Megatron you may ask yourself...
In what may be the most dramatic and wild finish to an NFL game this year happened yesterday afternoon between the Lions and Dallas Cowboys from Ford Field.
Looking lethargic and beaten the Lions got the ball back with a minute two and no timeouts in their pocket Matthew Stafford led his team down field with the help of a 22-yard reception from Calvin Johnson (who came within 7 yards...
If there’s anyone who can understand the feeling and emotion of winning in surprising fashion on a crazy fake spike play at the goal line, it’s Reggie Bush. Back in 2005, Bush’s No. 1-ranked USC Trojans beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Notre Dame Stadium 34-31 on a similar quarterback sneak for a touchdown. […]
Calvin Johnson put on a clinic today against Dallas. Racking up 14 catches for 329 yards and a touchdown in a thrilling Lions victory.
Megatron’s performance has everybody buzzing.
Lions teammate Reggie Bush is one of them and his recent tweet is going to stir up a lot of debate.
Calvin Johnson is the greatest receiver in the history of the NFL! #dropsthemic

The Detroit Lions defeated the Dallas Cowboys 31-30 on Sunday afternoon after Lions QB Matthew Stafford scored the game-winning touchdown.
Matthew Stafford's first 'wired for sound' was his gutsy last second game winning touchdown pass against the Cleveland Browns during his rookie season. 'The kind of thing that endears you to a city,' said Dan Miller, as Stafford went under center with a dislocated left shoulder.
Miller's quote is one you should never forget, but just in case you did, Stafford...

This sideline shouting match between Dez Bryant and Jason Whitten is brought to you by Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions.
With Dez Bryant making this incredible catch earlier in the game Sunday, Lions Calvin Johnson wasn’t to be outdone and pulled down this amazing catch in double coverage:
This is becoming customary for Johnson, who seems to make catches like this on a weekly basis. Though Bryant scored on a 50-yard catch and run to put the Cowboys...
