The Detroit Lions earned yet another closing-seconds victory yesterday, as they edged the Minnesota Vikings 16-13 in their annual Thanksgiving Day game yesterday. The Lions trailed by three when they got the ball with five minutes remaining at their own two-yard line. Matthew Stafford led a drive that stalled at the Minnesota 30-yard line, where Matt Prater kicked a 48-yard field goal to tie the score with 1:49 on the clock. On the fourth play of the Vikings’ ensuing possession, Darius Slay picked off a Sam Bradford pass, which set up Prater’s game-winning 40-yard kick as time expired. The victory moved Detroit into first place in the NFC North.
