Lions | Brandon Pettigrew bails out running game

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew was the solution to a stalled running game in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. "Brandon was probably, the best way to put it is he was our run game," head coach Jim Schwartz said. "What we did starting (in the) second quarter was we were adjusting every series. We started spreading him out a little bit more and they were short, control passes. He had 11 receptions and one was down the seam for a big gain. Most of the other ones were ball-control plays. That was sort of our run game."
