Lions Win Second Straight; Top Rams 31-28 in Detroit

Los Angeles Rams v Detroit Lions

Matt Prater made a tiebreaking, 34-yard field goal with 1:29 left and Rafael Bush followed with a victory-sealing interception two plays later, giving the Lions a 31-28 win over the Rams on Sunday.

The Lions (3-3) have won two straight games with Prater making the winning kick and a defensive back following up with an interception on the ensuing possession. Last week, Prater’s kick and Darius Slay’s interception gave Detroit a win over previously unbeaten Philadelphia.

The Rams (3-3) have lost two straight.

Case Keenum completed a Rams-record 20 straight passes, but couldn’t connect with Lance Kendricks on the long throw that Bush stepped in front of near midfield. Keenum finished 27 of 32 for 321 yards with three touchdowns — two to Kenny Britt, one to Kendricks — and an interception.

Lions Late Heroics Hand Eagles First Loss of Season in Detroit 24-23 Win

Lions Eagles

Matt Prater kicked a 29-yard field goal with 1:28 left and Darius Slay made an over-the-shoulder interception on the next snap, helping the Lions hand Carson Wentz his first loss with a 24-23 victory over the Eagles on Sunday.

The Lions (2-3) had lost three straight.

The Eagles (3-1) turned the ball over for the first time this season with 2:34 remaining when Ryan Matthews fumbled on a hit by Slay. The loose football was recovered by Tyrunn Walker at the Philadelphia 45.

Matthew Stafford set up the game-winning kick by converting a third-and-4 from the Eagles 39 with a perfectly placed pass on a crossing route to Golden Tate, who drew an unnecessary roughness penalty on Malcom Jenkins.
