10/24/16 - QB Matthew Stafford made his 100th career start a memorable one. The Detroit Lions quarterback connected with Anquan Boldin on an 18-yard touchdown pass with 16 seconds left, lifting the Detroit Lions to a 20-17 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday at Ford Field.
Stafford engineered a six-play, 75-yard drive after Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins scored on a 19-yard run with 1:05 remaining.
"They know what it's all about. They've been in that situation with me before," Stafford said. "We were down some guys and had to do it a little bit different today with four wides. Usually, we have a tight end there somewhere. But guys stepped up and made great plays."
Stafford completed two pass plays of 20-plus yards and also scrambled for 14 yards on the drive. He then squeezed a pass over the middle to the veteran Boldin.
"Anquan ran a great route, kind of slow-played his guy in the slot," Stafford said. "I cut it loose and kind of thought to myself, 'We're either going to win the game or lose the game on this one.' It was a tight window. I'll take that every time. I throw an interception right there, it's on my back and I'm fine with it."
Stafford completed 18 of 29 passes for 266 yards as Detroit (4-3) won its third straight, all at home. Lions wide receiver Golden Tate caught six passes for 93 yards and Zach Zenner scored his first career touchdown on a 1-yard run.

Cameras caught him swearing and staring in WR Golden Tate's direction after the play as the Lions walked toward the sideline. After the game, Stafford spoke calmly but offered short answers to reporters' questions. His postgame interview lasted less than two minutes. "At the end of the day, communication is on the quarterback," said Stafford, who threw another interception in the second half on a ball that sailed between TE Eric Ebron and WR Anquan Boldin. He completed 23 of 36 passes for 213 yards.
