In a matchup with arguably the most creative offense in football, the Lions pulled out some tricks themselves Sunday afternoon.

What kind of tricks? Well, Matthew Stafford threw an 11-yard touchdown to tackle Taylor Decker late in the third quarter against the Rams to cut Detroit's deficit to 16-13. 

That's right. Stafford hooked up with the guy who protects his blindside for a touchdown reception. 

Decker celebrated by hurling the ball into the crowd, a la Matthew Stafford after he caught a touchdown pass in last year's season finale. Perhaps the most excited player on the field was fellow tackle Tyrell Crosby, who mobbed Decker in the end zone.

Decker is just the second offensive lineman in Lions history to record a touchdown reception, joining Scott Conover who accomplished the feat in 1994.
