So were looking forward to working

DETROIT -- ?? Darius Slay dropped into coverage as if he was going to cover a deep route and pounced on an opportunity to help the Lions come back to win another game.Slay intercepted Sam Bradfords pass from the left hash across the field to help send the Lions into sole possession of first place in the NFC North.Slay returned the interception 13 yards with 30 seconds left to set up Matt Praters 40-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Lions to a 16-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday.Minnesota could have stuck with the conservative approach it took on offense for much of the game and played for overtime on its last drive, but coach Mike Zimmer allowed Bradford to pass and Slay made him regret it.I knew they were going to throw, Slay said. They didnt want overtime. They know what happened last time.Earlier this month, Prater made a game-tying 58-yard field goal at the end of regulation at Minnesota and the Lions won in overtime.Slay, a standout cornerback, who calls himself Big Play Slay, fooled Bradford by coming up and stepping in front of Adam Thielen to pick off the pass.I wish I could have seen him fall off the outside route and come back in, Bradford said.The Lions (7-4) have won six of seven, including two against Minnesota this month and four of the wins have come on Praters field goals, despite trailing in the fourth quarter of every game this season.Slay sealed the first victory during the successful stretch with an interception late in the game on Oct. 9 against Philadelphia.Hes as good as they come in those situations, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. Hes kind of got a knack for it. Hes a bit of a riverboat gambler.Detroit extended its NFL record of having its first 11 games decided by seven or fewer points.They come from behind every week, so when we took the lead in the fourth quarter, we knew the game wasnt over, Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph said. We had to keep playing, but we didnt make enough plays.The Vikings (6-5) have lost five of six, plummeting out of first place after surging to the top of the division by winning their first five games.LOSING THE LEAD(S)Forbath put the Vikings ahead for the first time, giving them a 13-10 lead early in the fourth on a 28-yard field goal after Cordarrelle Patterson gained 22 yards on a reverse .The Lions moved a step closer toward winning a division title for the first time since 1993 by breaking a tie atop the NFC North with Minnesota.If both teams finish the regular season tied atop the division, Detroit would win the tiebreaker.If they were handing out trophies the day after this win, Id feel a little bit different, Caldwell said. It means nothing right now, right? We havent done anything.THREE-AND-OUTMinnesota didnt convert a third down until Bradford connected with Patterson late in the third quarter and finished 2 of 10 on third down.We werent good enough on third downs offensively, Zimmer said. We cant continue to shoot ourselves in the foot with some of those penalties and negative plays.INJURY REPORTVikings: A banged-up offensive line took a hit in the first half when center Joe Berger was evaluated for a concussion, and wasnt cleared to return. The line had yet another setback midway through the fourth when tackle Jeremiah Sirles had to be helped off the field.Every time we get some chemistry going on the line, we lose someone else, Rudolph said.Minnesota started the game without receiver Stefon Diggs (knee), cornerback Terence Newman (neck) and punt returner Marcus Sherels (rib, ankle).Lions: Linebacker DeAndre Levy was inactive, but appears to be closer to coming back from a knee injury that has kept him out since Week 1.UP NEXTVikings: In a week, Minnesota will host the NFC-leading Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night.Lions: Detroit gets an extended break before playing Dec. 4 at New Orleans.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Larry Lage on Twitter at www.twitter.com/larrylage Air Max 270 React Cheap . 24 Baylor in a Big 12 clash between teams trending in opposite directions.

PHILADELPHIA -- In need of wide receivers, the Philadelphia Eagles acquired Dorial Green-Beckham from Tennessee.The Eagles traded versatile offensive lineman Dennis Kelly to the Titans on Tuesday to get Green-Beckham, a talented player who has struggled with consistency and been sidetracked by off-field issues.Obviously, hes made mistakes, Eagles personnel boss Howie Roseman said. Hes a kind-hearted kid and he has the right intentions. And that if you get a chance to really spend some time with him, youll see that. Hes not a locker room cancer at all.Green-Beckham wrote on Twitter: Philly here I come! Much love to all my teammates, coaches and fans in Nashville. Thanks for everything.Tennessee has lost two tackles to injuries since the offseason program started, so Kelly gives them depth behind left tackle Taylor Lewan and rookie right tackle Jack Conklin.Dennis was a guy that we thought would help our football team, that would make us a more competitive position group up there, Titans general manager Jon Robinson said. Hes played three positions. Hes started 15 games in the NFL at (left) tackle, guard and right tackle. So were looking forward to working with him.Green-Beckham was a second-round pick last year after he was dismissed from the team at Missouri and transferred to Oklahoma, where he didnt play a down. He caught 32 passes for 549 yards with four touchdowns and immediately becomes one of Philadelphias most accomplished receivers.He comes in with an opportunity, no promises have been made, Roseman said. We felt comfortable to bring him in here to compete. Hes physically gifted. Hes 6-5, hes 240, he runs a 4.4. Hes got a rare skill set.Now, theres a reason that hes available at this time. Hes got to gget more consistent.dddddddddddd But for us and where we are in development, we thought it was a risk worth taking.Titans coach Mike Mularkey acknowledged a lack of consistency had been an issue with Green-Beckham.Ill say this, the inconsistency -- that was there, Mularkey said. We had many conversations about having back-to-back-to-back days. It wasnt like he wasnt trying, but it never clicked in.The Eagles best receiver, Jordan Matthews, is injured. They signed former Giants second-round pick Rueben Randle in the offseason to add depth, and they also have 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor and 2014 third-round pick Josh Huff.The Titans added three receivers in the offseason. Robinson signed Rishard Matthews as a free agent, drafted Tajae Sharpe in the fifth round and signed Andre Johnson at the start of camp.Still, the move caught some Titans players by surprise.Nobody in the locker room was expecting it, receiver Justin Hunter said. They definitely sent out a message today. I definitely do (see some urgency). I feel like everybody is on the chop block. Weve got a new GM and he didnt draft too many people in here. Anybody can go at this point, and were all fighting for a spot.Robinson said he wasnt necessarily intending to send a message.It wasnt a statement, Robinson said. It was just doing what we thought was best for the team. The NFL is a business, and again, weve said it since January, were trying to put the most competitive 90-man team on the field, and we think we did that today.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
