Detroit 16 Minnesota 13.  An inability by the Vikings to finish drives, keep Detroit pinned inside its five yard line in the fourth quarter, an inability by its offense to stay on the field, and a costly penalty and turnover give Detroit the NFC North division lead.  Two stalled Minnesota drives deep in Detroit territory forced the Vikings to settle for field goals.  The second major mistake allowed the Lions to kick a game tying field goal with 1:48 left.  In the final minute, the Vikings had a successful third down penalty negated by an illegal formation penalty.  On the following play Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford failed to see Darius Slay undercutting the receiver's pass route and threw an interception. That set up Matt Prater's game winning field on the final play.

Detroit 28 New Orleans 13.  Mistakes by the Saints and an inability to stop Detroit give the Lions the win.   A dropped interception that could have given the Saints a long return, a dropped pass at the end of the first half that would have resulted in touchdown.  That forced New Orleans to settle for a field goal.  Quarterback Drew Brees dropped a snap from center and then was called for intentional grounding and stalled New Orleans' first drive.  Brees was also forced into three interceptions.

Detroit 20 Chicago 17.  Plays down the stretch and on third down help Detroit win against the Bears.  The Bears hurt themselves with 139 yards in penalties including two holding penalties on their final possession which negated big plays that put them in field goal or possibly to take the lead.
