Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Jason Hanson tied the game in regulation and won it in overtime as the Detroit Lions took a 26-23 win over the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

Hanson went 4-for-4 and also added two extra points to move past John Carney into third place on the NFL's all-time scoring list.

Matthew Stafford was off for much of the game, but he led the team on three scoring drives in the fourth quarter and the game-winner in overtime. He finished the game 22-for-45 with 311 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Lions (2-3), who won for the first time since opening the season with a win over St. Louis. Stafford also ran in a score.

Calvin Johnson was also quiet for much of the game, but he finished the contest with six catches for 135 yards while Nate Burleson caught a score for Detroit, which snapped a six-game losing streak to Philadelphia.

Michael Vick was picked off twice and lost his NFL-high sixth fumble of the season. He did throw two touchdown passes and finished the game 28-for-46 with 311 yards. He also had a team-high 59 yards on nine carries, but it wasn't enough to stop the Eagles (3-3) from losing their second straight game going into their bye week.
