CLEVELAND (WJBK) -

Three touchdown catches = 21 points... including extra points, but it also equals some sweet dance moves after the catch.  Go ahead now rookie Joseph Fauria, do your thing!

Down 17-7 at halftime, the Lions (4-2) outscored the Browns 24-0 after halftime to pull out a win that seemed unlikely after the first 30 minutes.

With star receiver Calvin Johnson slowed by a knee injury, Stafford spread his passes around and threw three of his TDs in the second half to rally the Detroit Lions to a 31-17 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Stafford connected on three touchdown passes with rookie tight end Joseph Fauria, who celebrated each of the scores with familiar flair. On two of the TDS, the 6-foot-7 Fauria broke out some of his awkward, if not comical, dance moves and on the other he dunked the ball over the goal post.
 
Fauria has seven catches this season, five for TDs. Not bad for an undrafted free agent from UCLA.
