The victory was in large part thanks to Detroit kicker Matt Prater, who nailed the game-winning field goal as time expired, giving his team the 26-23 win.

Prater accounted for 14 points on the afternoon, going a perfect 4-4.

Afterwards, quarterback Matthew Stafford had nothing but good things to say about Prater, calling the veteran “clutch”:

“He’s as clutch as they get,” Stafford said. “I’ve been around him long enough to know that he loves that moment. That moment has Matt Prater written all over it.”

Prater has made a career of coming up big when it matters most, and he came through for Detroit once again this afternoon.
