The Detroit Lions did it all Sunday, putting together a complete performance on offense and defense. The 'D' bounced back after back-to-back shaky games against San Francisco and Atlanta, turning Tim Tebow's second start of the season into a nightmare.

Detroit recorded seven sacks in their 45-10 shellacking of the Broncos and forced Tebow to turn the ball over twice. Both of those turnovers — a third-quarter fumble and fourth-quarter interception — resulted in Lions touchdowns. 

On the first play, Cliff Avril blew around the edge and knocked the ball out of Tebow's hand. He then scooped it up and rumbled in from 24 yards out. Houston one-upped him in the fourth quarter, picking off a Tebow pass at the goal line and sprinting 100 yards for the score.
