Matthew Stafford calls this one 'the falling pizza touchdown'

The Lions quarterback learned something from his injured wide receiver this week, and it's paying off.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford learned a little something from Nate Burleson's recent injury troubles. With the ball on the goal line, the Lions went for the quarterback sneak. Stafford fumbled the ball, recovered it and scored the touchdown.

Behold, the diving pizza save, now a staple of the Lions' playbook.
