Matthew Stafford scores game winning TD (GIF)

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford led his team on an incredible comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys. They had a minute to drive down the field and get the score, they got two big catches from Calvin Johnson, including one that gave the Lions the ball on the 1-yard line.

Stafford ran downfield giving the universal gesture for the spike play. That had everyone thinking he was going to spike the play to stop the clock. Instead he jumped over the offensive line when he got the ball and reached the ball over the goal line for the touchdown. The Cowboys defensive line didn’t even appear to really try to stop the play, not expecting it.

The Lions offense didn’t really look like they were expecting it either.
