Lions rally to stun Raiders 28-27
Stafford leads Lions on thrilling comeback drive to beat Raiders 28-27
By The Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) ' Matthew Stafford threw a 6-yard TD pass to Calvin Johnson with 39 seconds remaining to cap a 98-yard scoring drive as the Detroit Lions rallied from 13 points down late in the fourth quarter to stun the Oakland Raiders 28-27 on Sunday.

The win wasn't sealed until Ndamukong Suh blocked Sebastian Janikowski's 65-yard field goal attempt on the final play. Suh threw his helmet in celebration after providing a perfect exclamation in his return from a two-game suspension.

The Raiders (7-7) appeared in control of the game when Aaron Curry returned a fumble 6 yards for a touchdown to make it 27-14 with 7:47 remaining.



But Stafford led two late scoring drives to win it and give the Lions (9-5) a two-game lead in the NFL wild-card race.
