Previously, TD celebrations with teammates had been prohibited.

In week two of the 2017 NFL Preseason, the Detroit Lions hosted the New York Jets in a cross conference showdown.

Bilal Powell led the NY rushing attack with 32 yards on nine carries. Detroit went 78 yards on 11 plays, capped by a attractive 5-yard touchdown pass by Stafford to wide receiver Marvin Jones over Jets cornerback Morris Claiborne that gave the Lions a 10-0 lead.

Detroit, which kicked off the preseason with a 24-10 win at Indianapolis on Sunday, led 13-0 at halftime.
