TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Dave Rayner's third field goal, a 34-yarder with 9:51 left in overtime gave the Detroit Lions a 23-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and ended the longest road losing streak in NFL history at 26 games on Sunday.
Rayner kicked a 28-yarder as time expired in regulation to force the extra period. The Lions took the overtime kickoff and drove 63 yards -- covering most of the distance on two big runs and a 12-yard reception by Calvin Johnson on third-and-8 -- to set up the game-winner.
The Lions (4-10) won on the road for the first time since Oct. 28, 2007, when they won 16-7 at Chicago.
The Bucs (8-6) kicked two fourth-quarter field goals to go ahead 20-17 with 1:39 remaining left in regulation.
