DETROIT (AP) - Matthew Stafford threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Titus Young with 20 seconds left, lifting the Detroit Lions to a 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Zach Miller made a spectacular, 16-yard catch on a toss from Russell Wilson with 5:27 left to put the Seahawks ahead.

Seattle (4-4) couldn't stop the Lions (3-4) on their last possession.

Stafford led a 16-play drive that started at Detroit 20 with 5:27 remaining. The possession began with a 15-yard pass to Calvin Johnson and was kept alive with third-down conversion passes to Johnson in Lions territory and to Joique Bell to set up the winning score from just outside the goal line.
