Matthew Stafford leads Lions on game-winning drive, tosses TD pass to T.J. Hockenson to top Falcons

The Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons traded leads three times late in the fourth quarter.

Matt Prater would give the Lions a 16-14 lead with 3:16 left to play. Falcons running back Todd Gurley would put Atlanta up 22-16 with 1:04 left to play on an accidental touchdown run. Gurley wanted to go down before the 1-yard line to kill the clock and eventually kick what could have been a game-winning field goal.
