If there were any lingering questions about the health of Matthew Stafford's sprained right ankle, they disappeared late in Sunday's first quarter when the Lions quarterback stepped up in the pocket to avoid a sack and took off running for a 21-yard gain, tying his career high.

"It was good enough to get out there and scramble a little bit," Stafford joked after the 45-10 win over the Broncos at Sports Authority Field. It was his only carry.

A week after his ankle was injured on his final pass against Atlanta, Stafford played one of his best games of the year, throwing for 267 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions as the Lions snapped a two-game losing streak.
