Mistakes and all, Lions unbeaten after beating Chargers

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Matt Patricia came to Detroit with a defensive background, so it will be no surprise if the Lions keep playing tight, low-scoring games.

Turnovers can be particularly harmful in matchups like that, but Detroit got away with those mistakes in a win over the Chargers.

Matthew Stafford threw two interceptions - and Matt Prater missed a field goal and an extra point - but the Lions overcame all that to beat Los Angeles 13-10 on Sunday. The Chargers matched Detroit's two turnovers and had kicking problems of their own, so the Lions now have a win and a tie to their credit after playing two games that could have easily gone either way.
