So far so good!

The Detroit Lions have controlled the first half of their Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants as Matthew Stafford has tossed a couple of touchdowns, one to Eric Ebron and one to Marvin Jones.

But one of the best moments of the first half came late in the second quarter when Matt Prater was called upon to attempt at 56-yard field goal.

Watch as Prater gets just enough of the kick as it bounces off the goal post and in to give the Lions at 17-7 lead heading into halftime.

The kick pushes Prater past Jason Hanson in Lions history for career field goals of 55 or more yards.
