NFL Highlights: Lions 22 – Falcons 21


Britain Lions Falcons FootballLONDON, ENGLAND – It took a second attempt, but Matt Prater’s 48-yard field goal as time expired gave the Detroit Lions a 22-21 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in the second NFL game played at Wembley Stadium this season.

Dave Sims and Mark Malone called the action on Westwood One.
