Justin Rogers The Detroit News Published 6:06 PM EST Nov 22, 2018 Detroit — Justin Rogers grades the Detroit Lions' performance from Thursday's 23-16 loss to the Chicago Bears. Quarterback After Matthew Stafford was sacked six times by the Bears less than two weeks ago, the Lions rolled out a more conservative game plan centered around short, quick-hitting passes. Beyond a well-executed design that netted Kenny Golladay 43 yards out of play-action, Stafford averaged 7.1 yards per completion. That would have been good enough if executed for 60 minutes, but two interceptions in the fourth quarter tank Stafford's mark. I can't put the last one fully on the quarterback, since Michael Roberts allowed himself to be bumped off his route by a smaller corner. But the pick-six a few minutes earlier was a case of seeing the safety crashing down on the route and forcing it anyway.

Justin Rogers The Detroit News Published 1:39 PM EST Nov 20, 2018 Allen Park — Welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of the Detroit Lions mailbag, where I'm thankful you guys are still coming up with interesting questions. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Forgive me for steering clear of bold proclamations after Ford played a grand total of 29 defensive snaps in his debut. In that performance, he gave up a reception all five times he was targeted and missed a tackle on two of Panthers' three longest plays, including the 82-yarder to D.J. Moore in the third quarter. The Lions have kept Ford around on the practice squad all season and immediately started him after his promotion, so they're clearly pleased with what they've been seeing on the practice field. But even as poorly as Teez Tabor has played this season, it's OK to let the competition play out the remainder of the season before declaring one is a more reliable solution going forward. I don't anticipate the … [Read more...] about Lions mailbag: Can Zach Zenner pick up the slack for Detroit Lions?
