PHILADELPHIA (97.1 THE TICKET/AP) – Jason Hanson kicks a 45-yard field goal in overtime and the Detroit Lions beat the Philadelphia Eagles 26-23 on Sunday.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – the Lions trailed throughout the game but staged a 10-point comeback in the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime.

Held in check most of the game, Matthew Stafford led Detroit to 17 points in the fourth quarter. He threw a TD pass and ran for a score.

Detroit had two shots from the Eagles 1 after a pass interference penalty on Colt Anderson with 13 seconds left in regulation. But Stafford misfired on both passes and Hanson kicked a 19-yard field goal to send it to overtime.
