Matthew Stafford completed 11 of 15 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns, helping the Detroit Lions beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 22-17 in a preseason game Friday night.
The Lions (2-1) trailed most of the night, but rookie Zach Zenner's 3-yard touchdown run with 1:41 remaining was the winner.
Detroit played without star receiver Calvin Johnson for the third consecutive game, but Stafford carved up Jacksonville's secondary in a half of work. Stafford threw a perfect deep ball to Golden Tate for a 62-yarder in the second quarter and then hooked up with Corey Fuller for a 4-yard score.
Zenner had a 41-yard scamper that set up Fuller's score. He finished with 85 yards on eight carries.
Blake Bortles was the story again for Jacksonville (1-2). He completed 20 of 29 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 38 yards, including two third-down scrambles that kept scoring drives alive.
