Tweet Sunday’s 31-30 nail-biter between the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys started off slow but later turned into the NFL’s best game of the day, thanks to a last-minute drive and score by Lions QB Matthew Stafford. After flawlessly driving the Lions the length of the field with just over a minute left using precise passing, Stafford executed a quarterback sneak from the one yard line to give the Lions the one-point victory. Apparently no one knew the sneak was coming, including his own team, as Stafford told MMQB: “So I’m on the line, and everyone in the stadium thinks I’m spiking it, and that was the plan,’’ Stafford said. “The other 10 guys [on offense] thought I was too. I thought I was—but then I saw a couple of their guys, almost standing up, and I just had this thought: Maybe I could make it by sneaking, or just putting the ball over the line. Maybe that was our best chance.’’ Stafford’s masterful drive and gutsy call at the end of the game are the kind of plays the Lions expect from their young quarterback after signing him to a contract extension worth over $5o million over the summer. Stafford is currently second behind Peyton Manning in the NFL with 2,617 passing yards and is on pace for his second season with over 5,000 yards and 30 touchdowns. The young gunslinger has always shown flashes of greatness since the Lions drafted him first overall in 2009, and it appears to be paying dividends for them now in his fifth season. -ALR
