Detroit Lions Week 13 inventory report: Amon
Lastly. The Lions did it.
What a journey. What a recreation.
This season has had greater than its justifiable share of tough moments, so as we speak felt actually particular for everybody concerned. For the gamers, the coaches and positively, the followers.
The Detroit Lions lastly received their first recreation of the 2021 season, they usually did it in maybe the most dramatic manner attainable, beating the Minnesota Vikings 29-27 on the ultimate play of the sport.
There have been a number of vivid spots for the Lions on Sunday in opposition to the Vikings. Let’s take a better have a look at a couple of of them.
The Lions rookie broad receiver made a handful of huge performs on Sunday, however none had been greater than his game-winning catch on the finish of regulation. St. Brown completed with 86 yards on 10 catches, along with his ultimate reception being the sport winner, in addition to St. Brown’s first profession landing.
Quarterback Jared Goff focused St. Brown in large moments and the rookie repeatedly delivered when referred to as upon.
A powerful efficiency throughout crunch time, and hopefully one thing the younger receiver can construct upon throughout these ultimate 5 weeks of the season.
Nothing new to report right here. Jerry Jacobs simply retains making performs and is getting higher along with his pre snap recognition every week.
Jacobs completed with seven whole tackles, together with two tackles for loss. On each tackles for loss, Jacobs was fast to determine what was taking place in entrance of him and flew to the ball provider to make the play. An indication that he’s starting to course of, and belief what his eyes are telling him—a significant step for a younger participant.
With the quantity of accidents the Lions have sustained within the secondary, for them to get such regular play from a UDFA rookie is big.
Not many individuals would have predicted Harris to be as productive as he has been in Detroit. When Romeo Okwara went on injured reserve early within the season, that left the door open for Harris to get nearly all of these snaps. And he has made the most of the chance to the purpose the place many are already starting to kick across the concept of the Lions bringing again Harris in 2022.
He completed with two sacks and 4 hits on Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, together with this fantastic thing about a transfer and end in opposition to tight finish Tyler Conklin.

To place it merely, the Lions kicking scenario in 2021 has been… unstable.
And whereas it may be too early to pencil in Patterson because the kicker of the longer term, he did what he was purported to do in opposition to the Vikings. He made each of his further factors and drilled all three of his subject aim try of the day—from 31, 41 and 49 yards. And from the place I used to be sitting, it seemed like that 49 yarder would have been good from 59 yards.
