The Detroit Lions needed a touchdown to beat the Washington Redskins Sunday and had to go 75 yards in just over a minute to make it happen. Challenge accepted, said Matthew Stafford, who connected with Anquan Boldin to cap off a six-play drive in just 49 seconds.
Here is the game-winning throw from Stafford to the veteran Boldin.
Matthew "CLUTCH" Stafford!

After an extra point, the Lions took a 20-17 lead with just 16 seconds remaining. Kirk Cousins and the Washington offense could not get into field goal range on the ensuing drive, and the game was over.
It was a spectacular comeback orchestrated by Stafford, who helped the Lions improve to 4-3 on the year.
