The Detroit Lions, one of the worst teams in the NFL in recent years, scored at least 35 points in the first two days of the regular season. A pleasant surprise, which will be confirmed on Sunday (7:00 p.m.) in Minnesota.
Not content with being one of the rare teams that has never played in the Super Bowl
, the Detroit Lions have been one of the chumps in the NFL for several seasons. In the last three years, he has only won 11 matches. And it is that, last year, they even had to wait for matchday 13 to sign a victory. Attack and defense were among the worst of the season. But, two days after the start of the new exercise, things are going a little better.
NFL Day 3 schedule and results
Detroit narrowly lost to the Philadelphia Eagles (38-35), before beating the Washington Commanders (36-27). And, as the scores indicate, the offensive team made a strong impression this time. She is currently third in points scored and fourth in yards gained. These results certainly didn’t come against two of the best defenses in the NFL, but at least they warm the hearts of the Lions.
Already six TD passes for Goff Three players are particularly involved in the team’s offensive success: quarterbackjared goff
, running back D’Andre Swift and catcher Amon-Ra St. Brown (named after an ancient Egyptian god, by his father who was passionate about this era). Coming onto the team last year, Goff (27) lost the aura he had when he led the LA Rams to the Super Bowl in 2019 (loss to New England). Last year, he only threw for 19 touchdowns. But this season, in just two games, he has already managed six.
Hutchinson, the hope of the defense
All three players have evolved since last season under Dan Campbell, a longtime assistant coach in Miami and New Orleans. Aside from an internship of less than a year in Florida, Campbell landed his first head-coaching job in Detroit. It’s up to him to lead the Michigan State cats to a positive season (a performance they haven’t achieved since 2017) and to the playoffs (absent since 2016).
The summary of the 2nd day. The Lions’ defense is a little less brilliant. He accumulated 65 points in two games. But he has cause for hope, in the person of defensive end Aidan Hutchinson (22), the second choice in the last draft. A native of the country – he was born 45 km from Detroit and went through the University of Michigan – he impressed against Washington, with three sacks incarson wenttz , the opposing QB and five individual tackles. An asset that the Detroit Lions will rely on on Sunday to face the Minnesota Vikings, who have a formidable offensive trident, with kirk cousins (Quarterback), dalvin cook (RB) and justin jefferson
