Levine Toilolo Jersey White

Lions notes: Detroit has the NFL’s worst red zone offense The Detroit Lions’ red zone struggles were back on display this past Sunday against the Cowboys. Though they did score once Trey Flowers Jersey , thanks to a phenomenal run from rookie Kerryon Johnson, earlier in the game, the Lions were forced to settle for a field goal, pushing an early lead to four instead of eight. Combine that with Detroit’s other three games, and you get literally the worst red zone offense in the entire NFL.This is particularly troubling when you consider how good the Lions’ offense has been outside of the red area. According to Football Outsiders, the Lions are ninth in average yards per drive, 14th in points per drive Levine Toilolo Jersey White , and they only go three-and-out 14 percent of the time, which is good for third best. Also interesting of note, the other three teams with poor red zone offenses are the three teams that have defeated Detroit thus far. It should come as no surprise that the Lions’ red zone defense (by touchdown percentage) is third-best in the league—allowing a touchdown just 35.7 percent of the time. Matt Millen is stepping down from his announcing role with Big Ten Network to focus on his health. As you may remember, Millen is dealing with a rare heart disease and fighting for his life. Obviously, this news doesn’t seem like a good sign, but we’re hoping for the best for the former Lions general manager: The odds to win the NFC North are pretty evenly dispersed... except for the Lions. Per Bovada.LV, here’s what the odds look like after Week 4:Packers: 8/5Bears: 2/1Vikings: 2/1Lions: 18/1Yikes.Hey , the Lions aren’t terrible in the first half. Hooray? Recapping film review pieces from around the Lions beat: Justin Rogers has five observations, and Kyle Meinke describes how the Lions’ plan to force Dak Prescott to throw backfired.Don’t look at this. Close out your window right now. Save yourself: Everybody loves on-field audio. The Lions provided the “Sights and Sounds” for their Week 4 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Lions players in superhero costumes + helping out families dealing with pediatric cancer = awesome. Matt Patricia is not asking for patience from Lions fans.After the Lions went from 9-7 in Jim Caldwell’s last year as Detroit’s head coach to 6-10 in Patricia’s first year, he is expecting improvement this year, rather than a long rebuilding process.“We’ve got to do it right away,” Patricia said on . “Everyone’s timelines are now. We understand that. But realistically, I think, for us we’re just trying to build it the right way so that we have sustained success once we get it to where we want to go. Certainly for the fans we’re trying to do that as quick as possible.”The Lions were one of the most aggressive teams at the start of free agency , quickly signing Trey Flowers, Justin Coleman and Jesse James, among other players. They’re operating this offseason like a team that expects significant improvement in 2019, and not like a team that expects a long rebuilding effort.
