2nd-year wide receiver Kenny Golladay has been receiving plenty of praise from the Detroit faithful the past few weeks. Despite the team’s rocky start, Golladay is emerging as a fan favorite.
Fans originally weren’t so happy with him when he was drafted. So far this season he has scored 3 touchdowns and caught 27 passes for 428 yards. He has also made some impressive catches so far this season. The catches he made last week against Green Bay were enough to make retired wide receiver and future Hall of Famer Calvin Johnson proud.
The Detroit Lions opened up divisional play with perennial NFC North favorites Green Bay Packers. The games against the Packers are always tough, and nothing is ever easy to come by.
When you’re going against quarterback Aaron Rodgers, anything can happen. Despite the fact that the Lions have won their last two games against the Packers, including a rare win at Lambeau Field, it’s still hard to have confidence. Especially after the way this season has started for the Lions.
Lions fans, the Matt Patricia era has not gotten off to a good start. The veterans are potentially unhappy, injuries are starting to add up, and the run defense has been abysmal. The run game remains troubled at best.
Despite all that, the Lions may have a chance to beat the New England Patriots. Granted, a lot of things would have to go their way, but it could happen.
The much anticipated Matt Patricia era mostly officially begins tonight! The Lions have made their way out to Oakland to take on the Raiders in their first preseason matchup under new head coach Patricia. We all know that these are mostly scrimmages, but here are some things that I’ll be watching out for tonight.
Kerryon JohnsonJohnson was the 2nd round pick of the Lions in this past draft. He’s a running back out of Auburn, and man, have the reports been good on him coming out of camp. Anyone who’s watched a Lions broadcast in the past year or two knows that the Lions haven’t had a 100 yard rusher in a trillion years.
Could Kerryon be the one to break that? As of now, it looks pretty good. He’s been hardworking, playing different roles, such as pass catching, and pass protection. He’s also gotten tips from former Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount. Hoping we get to see some of that tonight.
