Lions Vs. Broncos Score Update: Detroit In Control, Up 24-3 At Half

The Detroit Lions are having some fun after 30 minutes of football against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. After one of the two sacks of Tim Tebow, defensive lineman Stephen Tulloch offered his version of "Tebowing" while the Broncos quarterback picked himself up off the ground.

Then late in the second quarter from the one-yardline, the Lions ran a classic Michigan waggle play that left tight end Tony Scheffler wide open to catch Matthew Stafford's second touchdown pass of the game to put the Lions up 17-3. Scheffler celebrated the six points by faking a "Tebow" but then sharing the ol' "Mile High Salute" with receiver Calvin Johnson.

A three-and-out series and an unnecessary roughness penalty by the Broncos gave the Lions one more possession from the Denver 49 with two minutes left in the half. Stafford went to work with Calvin Johnson and quickly had the Lions at the goal line once again. Maurice Morris punched in in from the one to put the Lions in control 24-3 at the half.
