Week 16: 5 Lions Who Impressed and 5 Who Did Not

5 Who Impressed:

1. WR Kenny Golladay

Golladay was the passing offense on Sunday. He had over half of the receiving yards himself. Although it was not a flawless performance on his part, he had 12 targets and did only manage to grab six along with a couple of drops.

2. PR/KR Jamal Agnew

Agnew had a real nice 63-yard punt return for a touchdown — the most electrifying play of the game.

3. CB Darius Slay

Slay had another solid game this week against the Broncos. His two passes defended led the team, but not only were they deflections, but they were also touchdown-saving breakups as both happened in the endzone.

4. Kerryon Johnson

Johnson came back and looked better than I thought he would. He led the way with 10 attempts and 42 yards gained for an average of 4.2 per carry. He did look like he got a little beat up and was seen on the sidelines in pain, but to his credit, it did look like he took a hit below the belt.

5. RB Bo Scarbrough

Another week and another good performance by the running back. Scarbrough may not have led the team in attempts or yards, however, his eight attempts for 34 yards did the lead the team with 4.3 yards per attempt. Only slightly better than Johnson, but we did get a glimpse into what a backfield could be like with sharing the role between the two.

5 Who Did Not:

1. LT Tyrell Crosby

Allowed the only sack on the Lions that wasn’t credited to Blough himself in my opinion. Crosby has been a fair backup this year for the most part. He also showed his versatility in this game playing both right tackle and left tackle. However, the offense seems to run better when going away from his side.

2. QB David Blough

Blough was sacked a total of four times on Sunday — three of those were his fault. Blough holds onto the ball so long his offensive line can not hold the defense back forever. Not only that, but Blough only managed a 12-24 performance throwing after starting 4-5.

3. S Tavon Wilson

Wilson had two separate plays where his failed tackle resulted in a touchdown for Denver. Wilson has had a very solid year but this was simply not his day. I won’t be too hard on him because of that.

4. NT Snacks Harrison

Stopping the run game starts and ends with Harrison. He even said himself earlier this season. Snacks had one solo tackle all game. To be fair, he was double-teamed a fair amount. However, he still got through those last year no problem.

5. WR Travis Fulgham

Nitpicking to get the final one here. Fulgham was targetted twice and failed to make a catch. For someone who needs to show up to be invited to camp next year, he can’t let opportunities slip through his hands.
