TAMPA, Fla. -- Dave Rayner's third field goal, a 34-yarder with 9:51 left in overtime gave the Detroit Lions a 23-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and ended the longest road losing streak in NFL history at 26 games on Sunday.


Rayner kicked a 28-yarder as time expired in regulation to force the extra period. The Lions took the overtime kickoff and drove 63 yards -- covering most of the distance on two big runs and a 12-yard reception by Calvin Johnson on third-and-8 -- to set up the game-winner.

The Lions (4-10) won on the road for the first time since Oct. 28, 2007, when they won 16-7 at Chicago.

The Bucs (8-6) kicked two fourth-quarter field goals to go ahead 20-17 with 1:39 remaining left in regulation.

Congrats to the Lions. Another hurdle cleared. Hey, how come all these backup qb's are playing their butts off in Detroit this year? Must be the guys around them. They're a good team and better than the record shows.

Season's not over yet, but I'm already preparing my predictions for next year...Lions go 7-9...start 5-3, but Stafford misses a few games in the middle, comes back to win a couple at the end of the year

Lions O-Line is playing with an edge we haven't seen here in a long time (maybe going back to Barry's 2,000+ yard season). Megatron is coming into his own (73 catches, 1068 yards & 12 TDs). Brandon Pettigrew is quietly having a very nice sophomore season (third in the NFL for catches by a TE).

Yesterday's win was not just the Lions' first road win in 27 attempts nor was it just the first time since 2007 the Lions won two in a row. It was the first time since October of 2000 the Lions beat teams with winning records in successive weeks.
