Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said he wants the defense to cut down on the number of big plays they give up next season and also wants the defense to create more turnovers. "I think the way you become a game-changing defense is you cut down on the amount of big plays, because those are demoralizing to your defense," Austin said. "You try to create some more turnovers. I know that's an area that we weren't as good as we want to be." The Lions gave up more plays of 40 or more yards than all but two teams in the NFL.
