OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Matthew Stafford threw touchdown passes on his first two drives for Detroit before Matt McGloin threw a 19-yard TD pass to Brice Butler with 6 seconds to go to give the Oakland Raiders a 27-26 victory over the Lions in an exhibition game Friday night.
McGloin came in after backup Derek Carr left with injured ribs earlier in the fourth quarter and led the game-winning 68-yard drive. The victory wasn't complete until Sebastian Janikowski kicked the 33-yard extra point.
That couldn't overshadow a sharp performance from Stafford, who connected on a 28-yard pass to Golden Tate on Detroit's second play from scrimmage and a 4-yard score to Kris Durham on the second drive.
