Derrick Mason looked to be dead to rights when he was crunched over the middle after hauling in a short pass from Joe Flacco.
But, he refused to go down and turned a small gain into a 62-yard touchdown.
Shaking off a sandwiching hit from two Lions defenders, Mason accelerated out of the tackle and sprinted to the end zone to highlight a four-play scoring drive in the second quarter.
After crossing the goal line, Mason doubled over in pain and was attended to by Ravens medical staff on the bench. No. 85 will be fine, however, as he just got the wind knocked out of him and is expected to return.
