Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford saw his defense start wiping out a 24-point deficit with interceptions returned for touchdowns on consecutive drives midway through the third quarter, then he and Calvin Johnson took over from there, leading the Detroit Lions to a stunning 34-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys yesterday.

A week after turning a 20-point halftime deficit into an overtime win, the Lions provided further proof they’re a legitimate contender this season.

Tony Romo talked about the interceptions he threw to DallasCowboys.com,”The games turn on turnovers. It’s the most important stat there is in the game. It’s my number 1 job and I didn’t do a well enough job of that today.”

Stafford threw two fourth quarter touchdown passes to Calvin Johnson, including the game-winning 2 yard pass with 1:39 left. Detroit is 4-0 and has won an NFL-best eight straight games. This also was its franchise-record fifth straight road win, avenging a loss here last November that had been its NFL-record 26th straight road loss.

Tony Romo and the Cowboys (2-2) continued to show there’s no lead and no deficit too big for them. They blew a 14-point fourth-quarter lead for the first time in franchise history in the opener. The Cowboys are off next week and they resume play on October 16 at New England.
