Matthew Stafford found Ryan Broyles for a 6-yard touchdown pass with seven seconds left in the first quarter to give the Detroit Lions a 7-3 lead going into the second quarter on Sunday. The play ended an 82-yard drive that answered the Seattle Seahawks' first-possession score.

Quarterback Russell Wilson led a scoring drive of 72 yards to the Detroit 5-yard line, but the Lions defense held and forced a 23-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka to give Seattle a 3-0 lead with 5:23 left in the quarter. Wilson went 7-of-8 on the drive for 55 yards.

Stafford and company responded. The Detroit quarterback is 8-for-10 with 70 yards heading into the second quarter. The run game has worked well for the Lions as Mikel Leshoure took five carries for 30 yards.

The Lions kept the Seahawks rushing attack limited in the single Seattle drive of the first quarter. Marshawn Lynch took four carries for only two yards.
