  • GAME SUMMARY:

    The Lions were on the road in Baltimore in front of national television audience and beat the Ravens 27-12. Detroit got off to a rough start in the first quarter racking up penalties but no points. With the first team offense struggling for the second straight game Coach Swartz opted to keep the starters in the game to begin the second quarter and try to get some momentum going. Good call. Quarterback Matt Stafford would go to his favorite target, Calvin Johnson, with his team backed up against their own goal line. It would only take five plays, including three to Megatron, move 93 yards and score the first touchdown of the game. Not satisfied, the Lions would put together a nine play, 70 yard drive culminating in a 24 yard touchdown grab by Titus Young to grab a 14-3 lead. Both teams would trade field goals to end the half.

    The third quarter would be scoreless and both teams would add field goals in the fourth. Stephfon Green would add a 76-yard touchdown run late to pad the Lions scoring even more.

    Detroit would rack up over 500 total yards against one of the most respected defensive teams in the league. That was the good news. The bad news was that after just one penalty in their first preseason game Detroit would be called for 11 penalties for 98 yards. The return game also needs work yielding over 150 yards and returner Stefen Logan was carted off the field with an ankle injury in the second quarter. The Lions did not have running back Jahvid Best or Mikel LeShoure, but rookie receiver Ryan Broyles would make his debut and snag a couple of catches.
