1020 yards of total offense, 85 points, an overtime, and Chris Johnson still only had 24 rushing yards on 14 carries.

Alterraun Verner returned a fumble to make it 41-27, Titans. But: the Lions marched downfield so Shaun Hill (playing now for the injured Matt Stafford) could hit Calvin Johnson for a 3-yard TD pass. Then the Lions recovered an onside kick.
