Around the League writer Kareem Copeland has his takeaways from the game:
» The Detroit Lions overcame three interceptions by franchise quarterback Matt Stafford for a come-from-behind 27-23 win over the St. Louis Rams at Ford Field. Stafford capped a 9-play, 80-yard drive with a 5-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Smith with 10 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
» The Lions are still slinging it. Stafford put it in the air 48 times for 355 yards Sunday and easily would have reached 400 yards if not for a few drops. The game could have been a blowout if not for three interceptions, including a Cortland Finnegan pick-6.
» The Rams' offense still has a ways to go. They finished with 251 yards and were 4-for-12 on third downs. And this was a Lions secondary without safety Louis Delmas and cornerback Chris Houston. Cornerback Bill Bentley left with a possible concussion in the third quarter.
