The Detroit Lions beat the Atlanta Falcons on Matthew Stafford's 11-yard TD pass to T.J. Hockenson as time expired.
When the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons get together, you can count on a wild finish. Sunday was no exception as Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford led a 75-yard touchdown in the game's final minute, connecting with tight end T.J. Hockenson as time expired to send the Lions past the Falcons, 23-22. The drive followed the defense allowing Falcons running back Todd Gurley to score a touchdown with 1:03 remaining to keep Detroit's hopes afloat.
The Falcons may have already cleaned house on the management side, firing head coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff, but the organization reportedly has no plans to move on from franchise quarterback Matt Ryan or star receiver Julio Jones, per ESPN. Sitting in the basement of the NFC South at 1-5, the Falcons parted ways with Quinn and Dimitroff following an 0-5 start.
