Lions rookie Ziggy Ansah made an immediate impression, intercepting Sanchez's pass and returning it 14 yards for a touchdown. The 6-foot-5 defensive end from Ghana put his hands up just in time to pick off Sanchez's screen pass in the first quarter. He had an easy return to the end zone for the game's first TD.
Sanchez played three series, going 10 of 13 for 125 yards and a touchdown. Smith was 6 of 7 for 47 yards but left shortly after halftime.
