Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Matthew Stafford ran for a go-ahead 5-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter and the Detroit Lions beat the Oakland Raiders 18-13 Sunday.

The Lions (3-7) have won consecutive games for the first time this year. The Raiders (4-6) have a season-high three-game losing streak.

Matt Prater made three field goals on as many attempts in the first half to give Detroit a 9-0 lead.

The Raiders went ahead after their second drive of the third quarter. Latavius Murray's 1-yard touchdown run capped the opening possession of the second half and Sebastian Janikowski made a go-ahead, 48 yard field goal on Oakland's next possession.

After Detroit was held to 27 yards of offense in the third quarter, Stafford capped an 80-yard drive with a designed draw to put the Lions up 16-13 with 11:04 to play.
