Falcons hold off Lions to stay unbeaten

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Brian Poole was sure he touched Golden Tate before he reached the end zone. Poole had no idea that would be the last play of the game.

The cornerback contacted Tate's shoulder as the wide receiver's knee hit the turf just shy of the goal line, allowing the Atlanta Falcons to escape with a 30-26 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Ford Field.

The officials originally ruled that Tate had scored on a 1-yard pass from Matthew Stafford with eight seconds remaining, but a replay review overturned that call. A 10-second runoff was required and since the Lions were out of timeouts, the game was over.
