Ep: 287 – Lions & Arizona Cardinals Post Game – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Andy the Sandman to help you celebrate the Lions first win in eleven months, and they got it over the Arizona Cardinals. An unexpected event that was an excellent team effort by the Lions in all phases of the game. Kyler Murray didn’t have a great game, but much of that was forced by how the Lions attacked their offense.

Lions Didn’t Let The Arizona Cardinals Take Off

The Lions did a great job of containing Kyler Murray in the pocket other than on designed run plays. In doing so, they limited the Arizona Cardinals offense in a way that gave the Lions a chance to exchange scores throughout the game. The lead was traded between teams multiple times, but with solid play in all three phases of the game the Lions were able to stop Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals to set up Matthew Stafford‘s Lions final drive. This put the Lions in position to run the clock out with a victory on a Matt Prater field goal.

Detroit Lions Podcast Sees A Full Game From The Lions

The win over the Arizona Cardinals started with a solid defensive performance, including the Jeff Okudah interception (his first) that Chris predicted on Friday’s show with Jeff Risdon and Tony Ortiz. The Lions defense has been lacking this year, but they were able to scheme around the Arizona Cardinals offense in a way that gave the Lions offense what they needed to pull out a victory in Arizona. Of course, we take your calls – that’s what we do on the post-game show.
