Kyle Orton makes debut in Bills come-from-behind win

DETROIT -- Dan Carpenter hit a 58-yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining to cap the Buffalo Bills come-from-behind 17-14 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Kyle Orton, making his debut as the Bills starter, set up the decisive kick by completing a 20-yard pass over the middle to Sammy Watkins as Buffalo (3-2) overcame a 14-0 deficit. It was the eighth game that Orton has won in overtime or when trailing in the fourth quarter.

Orton went 30 of 43 for 308 yards with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Chris Gragg.

The Lions (3-2) were undone by kicker Alex Henery missing all three field-goal attempts, including a 50-yarder wide left with 21 seconds left. Receiver Calvin Johnson and running back Reggie Bush both injured ankles in the loss.
