Three takeaways from the Detroit Lions stunning win against the New England Patriots in Week 3

Published

1. The streak of games without a 100 yard rusher is finally over!

After 70 games, the streak is finally over for the Detroit Lions. Kerryon Johnson was the one who broke the streak as he rushed for 101 yards. Last week was a small glimpse of what Johnson was capable off, but this week he really showed his potential. Johnson is starting to get more looks week by week and this is a very bright spot going forward for the Lions rushing attack.

2. The defensive line showed up big time this week

The defensive line for the Lions got big stops for them this week. There were multiple occasions during this game where the Patriots ran the ball on 3rd and short and the line blew the plays up to force 4th down. Those were momentum changing type plays and helped the Lions down the stretch of this game.

3. A win like this helps the team buy in to Matt Patricia

After tough losses to the Jets and 49ers, the Lions were desperate for a win. Not only did Patricia beat his former team, he out coached them. After reports that he had already lost the team, it is a win like this that proves that the team will probably get behind him knowing that hard work pays off.

This truly was a win that not many people saw coming. But, the Patriots are known for not being good in September, only to completely turn it around after. This is a big win for the Lions, and hopefully is a sign of good things to come. With a winnable road game next week against the Dallas Cowboys, it will really show was type of team the Lions are.
