With PSV Eindhoven sneaking past Roda on Friday, Feyenoord knew they had to keep up the pressure on the league leaders.
Robin van Persie fired the home side ahead on 19 minutes, though the visitors were level minutes later when Bob Peeters stunned De Kuip.
With both sides heading for a point a piece, Anthony Lurling was in the right place at the right time to score a crucial injury-time winner.
NEC Nijmegen moved within a point of fourth place RKC Waalwijk after a thrilling 3-2 away win over Heerenveen.
Finnish international Mika Nurmela had the home side ahead after 40 minutes, though three goals in a 12 minute spell either side of half-time turned the game on its head.
Youssouf Hersi equalised just before the break and further efforts from Dennis De Nooijer and Dejan Govedarica after the interval put the visitors in command.
Georgios Samaras did pull a goal back for Heerenveen late on, but it proved nothing more than a consolation.
Twente kept De Graafschap bottom of the table thanks to a 3-0 home win.
First-half goals from Simon Cziommer and Faouzi El Brazi put the home side in control, before Ellery Cairo added a third on the hour mark to complete the rout.
Zwolle boosted their survival hopes with hard-fought 1-1 draw away to AZ Alkmaar despite finishing with only ten men.
Kenneth Perez had AZ ahead on 24 minutes, and their chances of securing the three points looked good when Ruud Kras was sent-off ten minutes later.
Despite failing to add to their first-half tally, Perez's goal had looked enough, before Marino Promes rescued an unlikely point.
