Lions show fight in 20-19 victory over Panthers

DETROIT (AP) The play went for an 82-yard gain, not a great moment for the Detroit defense. The way it ended epitomized the Lions' gritty victory.

Darius Slay hustled back and tackled DJ Moore on a long reception in the third quarter, preventing a Carolina touchdown. The Panthers eventually missed a field goal on that drive, and the Lions went on to win 20-19 on Sunday.

"That's a huge play, that's a great effort play," Detroit coach Matt Patricia said. "Great hustle, great pursuit, that's a really fast guy that he's chasing. Fortunately, we've got a faster guy for that moment."
