LANDOVER, Md. (AP) – The Detroit Lions took advantage of a pair of fourth-quarter bobbles, including one by Robert Griffin III, in a 27-20 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Matthew Stafford threw for 385 yards, and Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson both had 100 yards receiving for the Lions, who are 2-1.

Detroit beat the Redskins on the road for the first time since 1939, a 21-game streak that comes to a halt as the second longest in NFL history.
The score was tied at 17 when Griffin fumbled at the end of a scramble. The Lions recovered and kicked the go-ahead field goal on their next drive.

The Redskins (0-3) then had a touchdown pass overturned when video replay showed that Aldrick Robinson lost control of the ball.
