The Detroit Lions failed to get a winning record after losing to the Indianapolis Colts by a wide 20 points, 21-41. It was a disappointing performance as they held the home-field advantage and they failed to capitalize on their back-to-back wins against the Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars. Matthew Stafford did whatever he can to carry the team as he provided with three touchdown passes and 336 yards but only had 57% in his completion and one interception. Marvin Hall was the receiver who ran the most yards with 113 in four catches while TJ Hockerson had 65 yards in seven catches. Marvin Jones was more accurate as he got two touchdowns in three catches.

Dalvin Cook led the team in the offense as he had the most rushing attempts that resulted to 163 yards and three touchdowns. Cook also played the receiver role as he had two catches with one making it to the endzone.
