    Sunday, the Lions went into Washington wondering what to expect from RG3 and the Washington Redskins. The Lions knew they would have their hands full coming into this game with #30th Defense in the league. Lions have had a lot of trouble this season stopping the run. Which has led to their terrible ranking. They have had great success in forcing turnovers in the passing game. So all week they prepared for the Skins and the crazy offense who can run over anyone at anytime!

    At kickoff the Skins looked unstoppable moving down the field, the Lions seem to be in a bend but not break Defense style. They focused heavy on the run which opened up a lot of the passing lanes for RG3, and that would be all he needed to get close to the goal line. Then giving it to Morris to stuff it in from the 2 yard line for 6 on a drive that took up 5 1/2 min of the 1st qt.

    The Lions quickly move down the field, to even the score. A drive that Rookie running back Le'Veon Bell looked great on.

    Next series for the Skins was a short one. Going 3 and out, and forced to punt.

    The Lions then march down the field again, Bush rushes for an 15 yard TD. Take the the lead 14-7.

    RG3 comes out throws a pick on a streak to the TE.
    Lions would settle for a FG. 17-7


    Lions get the ball after kickoff. This was a big opportunity for the Lions to put the the Skins into a deeper hole, but they could not capitalize! Skins Defense stepped up big time forcing Lions to go 3 and out.

    RG3 then comes out and takes a Read Option for 70 yards for a Touchdown! 17-14

    Lions then march down the field and Stafford connects with Calvin Johnson on a 10 yard pass for a Touchdown. 24-14

    Then the Lions would step up big time on Defense really forcing RG3 into some bad situations, and playing keep away when they would get the ball back on Offense.

    "Lions Defense stepped up big! Only gave up 94 passing yards, and 125 rushing yards. Im very pleased with the defense today!" Owner Heath Howard stated
