DETROIT -- The Washington Redskins rushed Matthew Stafford with just three players on his last snap. Jaguars Super Bowl Jerseys 2018 . And, he made them regret it.Stafford threaded a sharp pass between a lunging linebacker and a blanketing cornerback to Anquan Boldin for a go-ahead, 18-yard touchdown pass with 16 seconds left to lift the Detroit Lions to a 20-17 win over Washington on Sunday.We should have blitzed seven or eight, Redskins coach Jay Gruden lamented. But we were playing coverage that weve been playing for a long time and guys were comfortable with. (Linebacker) Will Compton missed it by a fraction of a hair.Boldin, a 14-year veteran, got just enough separation to get away from rookie cornerback Kendall Fuller, who was pressed into a larger role because Josh Norman was knocked out of the game with a concussion.He kind of slow played his guy in the slot, Stafford said. I cut it loose and I kind thought to myself, `Were going either win the game or lose the game on this one. It was a tight window. And, Ill take that every time. If I throw an interception right there, its on my back. Im fine with it, being aggressive and trying to score.Detroit (4-3) has won three straight thanks in large part to Stafford making clutch throws in the final minutes, giving him 24 career wins with game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime.The Redskins (4-3) looked like they were going to extend their winning streak to five when Kirk Cousins scored a go-ahead TD on a 19-yard run with 1:05 left, but they couldnt stop Stafford. He opened the game-winning drive with a 23-yard pass to Marvin Jones, then ran up the middle for 14 yards and connected with former Redskins receiver Andre Roberts on a 20-yard catch before throwing the TD pass to Boldin.Here are other things we learned from Detroits win over Washington:TURNING POINTThe closely contested, low-scoring game included just two turnovers and Washington had both of them. Cousins fumbled in the third quarter at the Detroit 38 and Matt Jones fumbled into the Lions end zone late in the first quarter. After each turnover, the Lions made a field goal on the ensuing possession.Without question, that was a key, Detroit coach Jim Caldwell said.EMERGING OPTIONSThe Redskins may want to get the ball into the hands of receiver Jamison Crowder and running back Chris Thompson more often the rest of the season. Crowder had season highs with seven receptions and 108 yards, 1 yard from matching his career high set last year as a rookie against Dallas. Thompson set career highs with 12 carries and 73 yards rushing. He also had a season-high seven receptions for 40 yards, seemingly playing a larger role after Jones fumbled. Gruden insisted Jones was not demoted during the game.Im not going to give up on him for fumbling, Gruden said.CENTURY CLUBStafford has the most completions (2,410), yards passing (27,890), 350-yard passing games (18) among NFL quarterbacks in their first 100 games.I think Ill look back on it when Im done playing and Ill really appreciate it, Stafford said.HES STILL GOT ITWith Washington tight end Jordan Reed out for a second straight game because of a concussion, Vernon Davis made the most of his opportunity. The 32-year-old Davis had season highs with six receptions and 79 yards receiving, one week after having 50 yards receiving and a TD.BAD BOUNCEWashington kicker Dustin Hopkins had been almost perfect this season, missing only one of his 16 kicks. He matched his number of misses at Detroit, hitting the top of the left upright on a 45-yard attempt in the second quarter. Gruden, though, wasnt blaming his kicker for the setback.We missed a field goal and there are things in all three phases we can correct, he said.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Larry Lage at http://www.twitter.com/larrylage and follow his work at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/larry-lage Youth Jaguars Super Bowl Jerseys . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. Wholesale Jaguars Super Bowl LII Jerseys . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court.

This is a confidence booster for this team.BYU (4-4) attempted a 45-yard game-winning field goal with 16 seconds remaining, but Rhett Almonds kick was blocked. However, the ball didnt cross the line of scrimmage and Mitch Juergens recovered for BYU, giving the Cougars the ball at the Boise State 42 with 8 seconds left.The Cougars, who beat Boise State on a last-minute Hail Mary play last season, couldnt duplicate the magic on the final play of the game as the ball was knocked down in the end zone.It was another narrow defeat for BYU, which has lost all four games by a combined eight points.We had five turnovers and we were able to take care of the football, which is what kept us in the game, BYU coach Salani Sitake said. When youre ahead 5-0 in the turnover battle, you shouldnt even be in the game. That says a lot about how good this Boise State team is.BYU, which was without leading rusher JJamaal Williams due to an ankle injury suffered in practice this week, mustered just 322 yards of offense, well below its 405 yards per game average. Wholesale Jaguars Super Bowl Jerseys. owever, it was still almost enough for the upset-minded Cougars.BYU took a 27-21 lead with 13:33 remaining on a 37-yard field goal by Almond.Then Boise States offense came to life for the first time in the second half.Rypien engineered a 10-play, 90-yard drive that ended in a 4-yard touchdown run by Jeremy McNichols with 10:37 remaining.
