Ndamukong Suh Avoids Leon Lett-Like Mistake in Big Day

Ndamukong Suh may have just had the best game of his young career. His two sack day was capped off by a fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown. See all the highlights in the video below:

Watching Ndamukong Suh put the ball out for display around the ten yard line had me holding my breath and thinking back to a similar play with disastrous results. Leon Lett thought he had a sure touchdown in Super Bowl XXVII only to be caught from behind by Don Beebe and cough up the football. Reminisce with me:

    I love that Lett is responsible for two of the most famous turnover mistakes by a defensive player.

    I enjoyed Suh pushing Santana Moss off like a little fly that was annoying him. This was just one of several moments where the Redskins were visibly frustrated yesterday.

    Part of me is tempted to say “if it had not been for the Banks runback for a touchdown and Burleson losing the ball on that 25 yard play, this wouldn’t have been a close game”, but one could also say “if Washington hadn’t shot themselves in the foot with penalties at 2-3 crucial moments (encroachment on a field goal try to give Detroit a fresh set of downs on the 4 yd line) this game could have been completely different”.

    All in all, some great performances (esp our D-line), and a sigh of relief as Stafford seemed to find a groove again despite sitting for 7 weeks.
