Seattle Seahawks seem to have Detroit’s number.
At Ford Field, Seattle mounted a second-half comeback aided by a failed fourth-down conversion in Detroit’s own territory and a Jared Goff pick-six midway through the fourth quarter.
As time expired, Detroit tied the game with a 38-yard Riley Patterson field goal to erase a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit.
When Seattle won the overtime coin toss, they took the ball first. They went 75 yards in nine plays to win the game, 37-31, on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith to wide receiver Tyler Lockett. The Lions went 1-1 on the season after losing in overtime.

Lions wide receiver Kalif Raymond had a 36-yard touchdown catch on a flea flicker and Lions running back David Montgomery ran for a 4-yard touchdown.
The interception was Goff’s first since Week 9 of last season. He completed 28 of 35 passes for 323 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.
He completed 32 of his 41 passes for 328 yards, two touchdowns, and a passer rating of 116.3. He also rushed three times for 20 yards.
Despite being without both of their starting tackles, Seattle only managed one sack and one quarterback hit. The Seahawks had 393 total yards of offense.
Kerby Joseph injured his hip defending a Smith to DK Metcalf pass. Meltcalf injured his ribs on the same play, but both players returned.
James Houston, the Lions’ edge rusher, left the game with an ankle injury.
A thigh injury suffered by Montgomery late in the third quarter forced him to leave the game. Neither did right guard Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who injured his left leg during the fourth quarter.
As he is in concussion protocol, Lions wide receiver Antoine Green also left the game.
