Moments after the Detroit Lions tied the Washington Redskins with a field goal, Steven Sims gave his team all the momentum back with a spectacular kickoff return for touchdown.

The undrafted rookie out of Kansas almost set his team up to fail. Fumbling the kickoff, Sims gathered himself to recovery the ball, then set his eyes upfield and took off.

91 yards later, Sims was celebrating a magnificent kickoff return touchdown with his teammates.

Talk about turning lemons into lemonade.

This unlikely touchdown gave Washington a 10-3 lead over Detroit.
