 ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -Detroit quarterback Jon Kitna was one of the NFL's most thankful players Monday.
Kitna was knocked out of the game against Minnesota on Sunday with a concussion, only to return and lead the Lions to an overtime win over the Vikings.
``I've never felt anything like that, and for it to clear up and go right back to as normal as I can be, is nothing short of a miracle,'' Kitna said Monday. ``I just definitely feel the hand of God. That's all it was. You can't explain it.
``I have no headaches, no symptoms, no lingering effects. But that was the worst my head has ever felt, and the worse my memory was in the second quarter. Yet, after halftime there was nothing.''
Kitna said it was the third concussion of his NFL career, and the first since 2001.
After saying he knew who he was during the game, a reporter asked Kitna if he knew where he was.
``Barely,'' he said.
He was knocked out of the game in the second quarter and appeared to be out for the rest of the day, standing on the sideline without a helmet. But the team cleared him to play in the third quarter and he came back in the fourth.
Kitna passed a follow-up examination Monday morning.
``He's fine,'' coach Rod Marinelli said. ``He didn't have any symptoms, no headaches.''
Kitna ran the ball twice on the final possession, leading a game-winning drive when Detroit trailed or was tied for the third straight game, including a win last season at Dallas.
``It was a courageous effort,'' offensive tackle George Foster said.
