2. WR Josh Reynolds

Reynolds' drop on 4th-and-2 was the third-most impactful play of the Lions' day in terms of EPA. His other drop, this one on 3rd-and-10 in a tie game, was almost as brutal. Even outside of the drops, it was an underwhelming day for Reynolds: he only had one reception for 25 yards on four targets. After his seven catch, 80-yard performance in the Lions' Wild Card win over the Rams, the receiver had a quiet two weeks, only catching three balls for 52 yards and one touchdown over the last two games combined.
