SLR Detroit Lions Player Of The Year Tournament Second Round: Chris Houston vs. Amari Spievey

The second round of the 2011 SideLion Report Detroit Lions player of the year tournament is underway! Take a look at the bracket.

We’re staying on the defensive side of the bracket today. Who will move on to the Sweet 16?

(4 seed) Chris Houston vs. (5 seed) Amari Spievey

Not only was Chris Houston the team leader in interceptions with five, he was one of just four players in the NFL to return a pair of interceptions for touchdowns. The first was a 56-yarder from Tony Romo that helped bring the Lions back against the Cowboys while the other was a 100-yard return off Tim Tebow in Denver.

Amari Spievey has come a long way since his first days as a Lion when he was an injured cornerback in need of an immediate position change. He started 15 games during the 2011 regular season and made 70 tackles including one sack and intercepted three passes – all improvements over his rookie year.

Who should advance to the third round of the 2011 SideLion Report Player of the Year Tournament?

  • Chris Houston (87%, 48 Votes)
  • Amari Spievey (13%, 7 Votes)

Total Voters: 55
