Lions | Not facing man coverage

Thu, 04 Oct 2012 05:27:17 -0700

Of the 296 offensive plays the Detroit Lions have run through four games, only five have been against man coverage, according to offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. Opponents want to attack the Lions offense by playing their safeties deep and play zone coverage in front of them. "We're going to have to have the ability to execute multiple-play, double-digit drives and score touchdowns," Linehan said. Through the first four games last season, the Lions had 21 plays of 20-plus yards and seven plays of 30 or more yards. Through the first four games this season they have 17 plays of 20-plus yards but only three of the 30-yard variety. QB Matthew Stafford has just three touchdown passes through the first four games.
