VIDEO: Tim Tebow Fumble Returned For Lions TD

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is having a rough day. Struggling to do much of anything, besides get sacked, with the Broncos' offense, Tebow made a costly third quarter fumble that dug the hole even deeper for the Broncos. At this point, a fourth quarter comeback like last week's seems all but impossible. 

Detroit Lions defensive end Cliff Avril sacked Tebow on second down early in the third quarter. The sack resulted in a fumble which Avril scooped up to return 24 yards for a touchdown. That gave Detroit a 31-3 lead over the Broncos. Check out the video of Tebow's fumble and Avril's touchdown.

Fortunately for Avril and the Lions, he declined the opportunity for some Tebowing following his sack. He even declined to add to the Lions' Tebowing today. 

Halfway through the third quarter, Tebow has completed just four of 13 passes for 37 yards. On the ground, he has 15 yards on four rushing attempts.
