NFL-‘We’ve Found a Way to Win’: Lions end week of agony with victory over Vikings | WSAU News / Talk 550 AM · 99.9 FM

(Reuters) – The Detroit Lions are left without a wink after beating the Minnesota Vikings 29-27 on Sunday to end a week of misery and ridicule.

Down four points with four seconds left on the clock, the Amon-Ra St. Brown caught an 11-meter pass from midfielder Jared Goff’s end area in front of a relieved home crowd, improving their record to 1-10-1.

“I’m proud of our boys, man – they fought,” head coach Dan Campbell told reporters. “They kept fighting all year and it paid dividends today and we found a way to win.”

Campbell dedicates the game ball to the community of Oxford, Michigan, where a teenager was last week charged with first-degree murder in the deadliest school shooting of the year in the US nL1N2SM142 that left four students dead.

The Lions had previously gone a winless season in 2008, keeping the distinction of being the first franchise to do so since the league expanded its schedule to 16 games in 1978.

There were early signs of problems after the team lost all of its pre-season games, swapping longtime midfielder Matthew Stafford for Goff in a blockbuster deal earlier this year.

Detroit settled for a draw with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10 and committed one of the most underperforming offenses in the league this season.

“It was in one playthrough and we were able to get through it,” said Goff, a former first-rounder. “We’re not perfect but being able to fix our mistakes is a sign of a good team.”
