After Mikel Leshoure showed his quickness on the Lions first drive, they gave him a chance to score on the second drive.
And he did, punching in a two-yard run to put the Lions up 14-7 with 4:25 left in the first quarter.
The Lions got the ball back immediately after scoring when Ashlee Palmer forced return man Brad Smith to fumble on the kickoff. Reshard Langford recovered the fumble for the Lions, giving them a new drive at the Buffalo 9.
Two plays later, Leshoure scored. Better keep that ball.
