Last week, the Detroit Lions asked:
Who is the only player in Detroit Lions history to return both an interception and a fumble for a touchdown in the same game?
There were a total of 1,672 votes on Facebook and 523 got the answer right: Hall of Fame CB Dick LeBeau.
LeBeau is one of only 12 players in NFL history and only player in Lions history to return a fumble and an interception for a touchdown in a single game. In a 37-23 win vs. Minnesota on December 9, 1962, LeBeau scooped up a fumble and returned it 26 yards for a score and then proceeded to pick off a pass and return it 31 yards for a touchdown against the Vikings.
