The Morning Fix

“It’s something in the far back, back part of your mind that’s one of your greatest fears, seeing yourself down on that field,” Follett, the Lions linebacker, told The Detroit News on Tuesday. “It was definitely scary when it happened.”

The issue is penalties. Over the years, I’ve been told penalties fall into two categories: lack of talent (which is on the players) and lack of discipline (which is on the coaching staff).

Stafford said Tuesday on the “Dan Patrick Show” he plans to take “all” the first-team snaps in practice this week and hopes to be on the field when the Lions return from their bye Oct. 31 against the Redskins.

Upon further review, here’s an analytical breakdown of some of the plays and events that unfolded in the first half of the Detroit Lions’28-20 loss to the New York Giants at New Meadowlands Stadium.
