A gift? Sure, Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley made a huge mental mistake by scoring a TD rather than falling short and running down the clock. But Matthew Stafford still had to orchestrate a tough drive to win the game with a throw to T.J. Hockenson for the game winner.
It was a nail biter and reason to celebrate for sure.
With the Bears loss last night to the Los Angeles Rams, the Lions are just 2 games back in the NFC Central and find themselves in the midst of the wildcard race. They play the Indianapolis Colts Sunday at a fan-less Ford Field.
