Lions tight end Joseph Fauria is becoming a touchdown magnet.
In Sunday's 31-17 win over Cleveland, Fauria caught three passes for 34 yards. All three receptions went for touchdowns.
His first came on a 1-yard catch in the first quarter. His second touchdown was from 23 yards out in the fourth quarter.
He added a third touchdown with just 2:01 remaining in the game from 10 yards away.
Fauria's an intriguing option in Detroit's offense. As a No. 3 tight end behind Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler, Fauria has just seven catches for the season. However, five of those receptions have gone for touchdowns.
Fauria now leads the Lions in touchdown receptions. Calvin Johnson is second with four.
