This was as close to a Calvin Johnson game as I’ve seen from anyone not named Calvin Johnson.
They throttled Jacksonville, racing out to a 24-3 lead and never looking back. Lions’ big mistakes lead to decisive loss vs. Colts, 41-21. 3.9 – yards per carry for Peterson on the season, 36th in the NFL among running backs. It could do the same for Okudah.". He also dropped an easy ball on what would’ve been a third-down conversion on the second drive of the game. 80 – receiving yards for Marvin Jones Jr., more than he had in the previous 3 games combined (68). And Jayron Kearse’s workload dropped from 59% to 41% this week.

Blough was signed to the active roster last week to prevent him from being poached from the Dallas Cowboys and his inactive status isn’t surprising given he is the team’s third option at quarterback. He finished the contest with nine carries for 27 yards and a touchdown on the goal line, during which he made a nice cut-back after the initial running lane was clogged up by Atlanta. 2.6 – yards per carry for Adrian Peterson in Week 7, his lowest output on the season, which has steadily declined each week. 53.4 – average yards per punt for Jack Fox (48.0 Net), still the No. His other came in 2009 against the Browns. In Week 7, he had a long of 67-yards and averaged 59.0 on his three punts for the day..@Lions P @MrJackFox booms a 67-yard punt on his first attempt of the day. Run blocking wasn’t great—especially on key short yardage situations where Adrian Peterson just had no shot. The Lions elected to not elevate any players from the practice squad this week, meaning they enter today's game with 53-players on their roster. And Kerryon Johnson, the third back in Detroit's running backs rotation, was relegated to blocking duties once again, and in his defense, did come up with a few good blocks throughout the contest. Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions' defense struggled against the Indianapolis Colts. @Lions P @MrJackFox booms a 67-yard punt on his first attempt of the day.
Scarbrough was just activated to the roster yesterday, so he may still need time to acclimate, but the Lions three-back rotation is rolling right now, so there may not have been snaps available anyway. There wasn’t much going for the Lions’ return game, but their coverage teams continue to be very, very good.
