The Detroit Lions were trailing to start the fourth quarter. Much like last year, that didn’t last long. Quickly, Matthew Stafford led the team down for a go-ahead score, ending with a nice-looking fade to Kenny Golladay.
But that was just the beginning.
After the Cardinals failed to score on their next drive, the Lions had seven minutes to bleed clock and potentially extend their lead. This is something the Lions have notoriously struggled with, especially with no run game to speak of.
But who needs a run game when you have Kenny freakin’ Golladay. Look at this monster catch from Golladay.

After a slow start to the game, Golladay completely redeemed himself in the fourth quarter. With that reception, Golladay had four catches for 69 yard and two touchdowns.
But more importantly, the Lions took a huge 28-17 lead late in the game. Miles Killebrew would put the stamp on the game just a few days later with a pick-six.
