The Detroit Lions appear to have their mojo back. On Saturday night against the Denver Broncos, they jumped out to a big, early lead. Thanks to three consecutive touchdown drives from the offense and a shutout half from the defense, the Lions led the Broncos 21-0 at the half.
It was the offense’s final play of the half that really put an exclamation point on the half of play. On a third-and-7 from the Broncos 15-yard line, quarterback Jared Goff found Amon-Ra St. Brown on a crossing route. It was an easy first-down pickup for St. Brown, but that wasn’t enough for the third-year receiver. With a defender closing in on him, St. Brown took liftoff, believing he could dive into the end zone.
He was right.
St. Brown took the hit, rotated mid-air, did a flip, and nearly landed on his feet for this incredibly touchdown catch and run.
The score capped off an incredible three series from Detroit, in which they gained at least 60 on each and found the end zone to cap it off.
