Lions snap counts with some interesting numbers, including 100 percent snap count for Tracy Walker and how much the Lions did use Adrian Peterson.


Lions snap 11-game losing streak, beat Cardinals 26-23

Matt Prater made a 39-yard field goal as time expired, Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes and the Detroit Lions snapped an 11-game losing streak dating to last season by beating the Arizona Cardinals 26-23 on Sunday.

The streak is over. For the first time since October of last season, the Detroit Lions won a football game, beating Arizona 26-23 on a last-second field goal by Matt Prater. There's some symmetry in the Lions winning late against Arizona since it was perhaps the scene of the team's worst collapse under Matt Patricia in the season-opener last year. But Detroit led two field goal drives in the fourth quarter to come-from-behind to win in the fourth quarter for only the second time under Patricia.

Prater's kick helps Lions end 11-game losing streak (0:25)
Okudah picks off Murray in the middle of the field (0:42)
Golladay stretches out for a Lions TD (0:26)
Murray picked off in 2nd quarter (0:26)
Lions take the lead on Stafford's TD pass to James (0:15)

On Jeff Okudah's interception, the rookie corner closed on DeAndre Hopkins while the ball was in the air. At the moment of this image, with the ball about halfway to them, Hopkins is moving 17.39 MPH, but Okudah is going 20.13 MPH, per NFL Next Gen Stats.

The Lions have shown some life in the middle of the desert. Linebacker Jamie Collins, in particular, has been active with a pressure to force one Kyler Murray interception and intercepting Murray himself, helping Detroit to a 17-13 lead over Arizona at halftime. The offense has also looked largely in rhythm with WR Kenny Golladay back. Golladay has a touchdown and Detroit has relied on Adrian Peterson, who is the only Detroit running back with a carry so far. D'Andre Swift has one reception.

Jesse James hadn't been targeted the first two games of the Lions' season. Today against Arizona? Two targets, two catches and a touchdown in the first half.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Lions inactives: CB Desmond Trufant, RB Ty Johnson, S C.J. Moore, OL Logan Stenberg, TE Hunter Bryant. Kenny Golladay is ACTIVE for the Lions today. He'll make his season debut. Julian Okwara also active, as is Halapouilvaati Vaitai.

Lions LB Jamie Collins was fined $35,096 from Week 1 when he was ejected for making contact with an official. Collins later admitted it was a mistake.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

With Desmond Trufant now out for the Lions, figure it'll be Amani Oruwariye and Jeff Okudah as the two primary corners who likely will match up with D'Andre Hopkins.
