Matt Prater drills game-winning FG in London game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions kicker Matt Prater drilled a game-winning 48-yard field goal as time expired to give his team a 22-21 Week 8 victory over the Falcons in London.

Prater's first attempt went wide right, but he was saved by a delay of game penalty that pushed his kick back 5 yards. He added a 22-yard field goal in the third quarter and a 20-yard shot in the fourth. He finished 3 for 3 in field goal attempts with one extra point, totaling 10 points in the win. He is 5 for 7 on the season.

Caldwell: Lions have 'all the confidence in the world' in Matt Prater
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

New Lions kicker Matt Prater contributed to the team's kicking woes Sunday against the Vikings, missing 2 of 3 field goals during a 17-3 win. The Lions, who already cut kickers Nate Freese and Alex Henery, have made just 5 of 15 field-goal attempts this season.

However, despite Prater's struggles Sunday, Lions coach Jim Caldwell doesn't appear to be searching for another kicker just yet, per the Detroit Free Press.

"I think (with) wind like we had today, you're going to have an issue," Caldwell said. "He kicked a 52-yarder, which was great. We have all the confidence in the world in him. I mean, the guy's got a great track record. We feel good about him."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Lions will sign kicker Matt Prater to a one-year deal, ESPN reports. The Lions confirmed the agreement Tuesday night, according to the Associated Press.

He has made 81.6 percent of his field-goal attempts during his eight-year career, including 25 of 26 attempts last season.
