Detroit Lions

The Lions last tested their mettle against the Dallas Cowboys. Despite performing a high-scoring game, they still lost at 35-27. QB Jeff Driskel was going for 15/26 with 209 air yards. He capped off the night with 2 tossed TDs. Bo Scarbrough was in charge of the rush game. The Lions contributed 55 yards thanks to 14 of his carries. He also had a long run of 23 yards. He was able to score a rushing TD. Danny Amendola was the reception leader, doing 4 receptions at 47 yards.

The Detriot Lions ran for 28 out of 57 plays. This means that they were not hindered by the enemy defense. They covered 312 yards versus the opponent’s 509. In a low-defense ballgame, the team which rules the yardage gain would most likely come out on top. This was the case with the Lions, whose inferior control on the field led to less scoring attempts than their opponent. 

The Lions didn’t invest much in defense, choosing to pour their energy into the offense. They allowed a 63% throw completion rate plus 24 rush attempts by their opponent. The Lions need to remember that defense is an integral part of the game, and neglecting this can lead to dire consequences.

Washington Redskins

The Redskins last strove against the New York Jets in a lopsided game. They were outscored, with a 34-17 endgame. Dwayne Haskins did his best at 19/35 and 214 air yards. His efforts culminated in 2 thrown TDs and 1 interception. Adrian Peterson only did 9 carries, which earned 25 yards. Terry Mclaurin was low on stats as well, with 3 catches contributing a measly 69 yards. 

From the stats of the players, it’s easy to glean that the opponent had a strong throw and rush defense. The Redskins ran the ball for only 20 out of 61 plays. Their total yardage gain was 225, as opposed to their opponent’s 400. The yard gain story already had the game skewed against the Redskins.

The Redskins didn’t have much to offer in terms of defense. They limited the opponent to 61% throw completion, but still gave away a whopping 33 rush attempts. It’s easy to deduce that their yardage and scoring got buried underneath the numerous rush attempts. The Redskins need to step back and reevaluate their game plan leading to their upcoming matchup.
