  • GAME SUMMARY:

    The Lions got exactly what the doctor ordered in Jacksonville, a dominating performance from start to finish that ended in a 31-14 road win. The game wasn't that close as the Jaguars scored two fourth quarter touchdowns after the Lions jumped all over the home team early with three Mikel Leshoure touchdown runs in the second quarter. It was a rare game for the Lions who rushed more times than they threw (34-33) and didn't need a fourth quarter comeback to win the game. It was the first time this season the Lions lead at the half and the win brought the Lions back to the .500 mark at the halfway point of the season. Calvin Johnson got off to a fast start with 111 yards in the first half while rookie Ryan Broyles added six catches for 52 yards. The Lions intercepted Blaine Gabbert twice and didn't turn the ball over on offense. It would be the second straight week a Lions second year, second round draft pick had a breakout game after receiver Titus Young's big game last Sunday in Detroit.

    The Lions would get the ball first and move the ball but have to punt. Their second drive would go 11 plays but end in a Jason Hanson missed field goal. The Jaguars first four drives would end in punts with Jacksonville unable to muster any offense. The second quarter would belong to second year running back Mikel Leshoure who would score touchdowns on three straight dives. The drives would go for 91, 53, and 81 yards respectively. Detroit would be effective through the air and on the ground in their most balanced effort of the season. It was a dominating half for the Lions who had 285 yards to the Jags 57 and held the ball for over 22 of the 30 minutes.

    Jacksonville would have their first two drives of the second half end in interceptions by rookie Jonte Green and safety Eric Coleman. The Jaguars would score touchdowns on their final two drives as the game was already well decided. Detroit would add a Jason Hanson field goal while Joique Bell would get on the scoreboard with a ten yard run as he lead the Lions with 73 yards on 13 rushes. It would be the Lions most complete game of the year.

    The Lions would finish with more yards 434-279 and just five penalties. They would finish an impressive 8-12 on third down conversion attempts while controlling the game throughout. Mikel Leshoure was the first Lion with three rushing touchdowns in a game since James Stewart back in 2001 and the first ever to score three in the first half. Not a bad day who celebrated the birth of his first son just four days ago! Matt Stafford hit the 10,000 yards passing mark for his career in just his 37th game, only Kurt Warner has done it faster (36).
