The Lions (1-2) got their best defensive effort of the young season Sunday, intercepting three Kyler Murray passes and getting a key stop in the game’s final minutes.

Murray, who generated some early-season MVP buzz with his play the first two weeks, threw incomplete passes on second and third down near midfield with just over 5 minutes to play.

The Lions took over at their own 9 after an Arizona punt and overcame an untimely holding penalty on Halapoulivaati Vaitai to escape with the win.

Vaitai, one of the Lions’ biggest free-agent additions of the offseason, allowed two sacks Sunday in a surprise start at right guard and was called for a holding penalty that negated a long pass to Marvin Hall at the two-minute warning.

But Byron Murphy was called for pass interference against T.J. Hockenson on the next play, giving the Lions the ball near midfield, and Stafford completed first-down-converting passes to Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones to move the ball into field-goal range.

Prater, who missed a 55-yard field goal wide right in the fourth quarter of Lions’ season-opening loss to the Chicago Bears, and a 57-yard wide right just before halftime of last week’s loss to the Green Bay Packers, came on with 4 seconds left and the ball on the left has and drilled the kick, his fourth of the game.

On Sunday, the Lions had some dicey moments, but got big contributions from Stafford, Jesse James and the defense to keep their season alive.

The Lions confused Murray with an array of zone coverages and took advantage of two early interceptions to build a 17-13 first half lead.

Trailing 7-3, the Lions got their second interception two defensive series later when Collins picked off a bad throw by Murray. Six plays after, the Lions scored on fourth-and-1 from the 5, when Stafford found James for his second catch of the season.

The Cardinals (2-1) answered with a nine-play, 74-yard touchdown drive as Murray froze rookie cornerback Jeff Okudah in the open field on a bootleg touchdown run, but Stafford threw his second touchdown of the game, to Kenny Golladay, with 31 seconds left in the half.

Golladay, making his season debut after missing the first two weeks with a hamstring injury, finished with a team-high six catches for 57 yards and a touchdown.

The Lions and Cardinals traded field goals to open the second half, with Prater making a 24-yard kick six plays after Okudah’s first career interception. Okudah picked off a Murray pass thrown behind DeAndre Hopkins and returned it the Arizona 22-yard line.

The Cardinals responded with an 11-play, 75-yard touchdown drive, and after the Lions passed on a 58-yard field goal on their next possession, they got a big three-and-out and started their game-tying drive at the Arizona 36.

Stafford finished 22 of 31 passing for 270 yards and two touchdowns. Adrian Peterson added 75 yards on 22 carries and the Lions had their first multiple-interception game since Week 17 of the 2017 season.
