FORD FIELD (CBS DETROIT) – Almost everything went the way of the Detroit Lions Sunday, and one of the lighter moments came after one of the biggest plays of the game. Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh stripped the ball from Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler, and fellow defensive tackle Nick Fairley recovered the fumble and ran it into the end zone.
Fairley said it was his first touchdown since he played tight end in high school.
He and Suh jumped up together to celebrate, but there was a little mishap. Suh bounced off Fairley and promptly fell down.
“The belly just overcame everything,” Suh said, laughing.
The duo had reason to be in good spirits – their play gave the Lions a three-touchdown lead at the end of the third quarter, and Detroit went on to win 40-32.
