lions redskins1 Lions Win 37 25 Over RedskinsMatthew Stafford’s fourth touchdown pass converted a fourth down with 3:12 left and the Detroit Lions scored nine points in 14 seconds to turn a closely contested game into a 37-25 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

The Redskins (4-4) turned the ball over on downs after Johnson’s career-high third score. Washington coach Mike Shanahan then put Rex Grossman in for an apparently healthy Donovan McNabb, he fumbled on his first play and Ndamukong Suh returned it for a TD.

The Lions (2-5) were trailing late in the game with Alphonso Smith stepped in front of McNabb’s pass at the Redskins 26 to set up the go-ahead TD.

Stafford played for the first time since Week 1 when he separated his right shoulder on a sack.
