The Detroit Lions posted footage from the final drive of Sunday’s last-minute win over the Dallas Cowboys.
The Lions turned the ball over four times, but thanks to some late game heroics they still managed to pull off a victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Matthew Stafford’s 1-yard lunge over a pile of linemen with 12 seconds left and Calvin Johnson’s 329 yards receiving lifted the Detroit Lions to a 31-30 comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
There’s a curious anger directed at Matt Stafford, difficult for many of us to understand who’ve spent every Sunday of our natural lives watching the Lions, clutched in the kind of tension and nausea that’s normally associated with Montezuma’s Revenge.
