The Detroit Lions vs. the Buffalo Bills just took place and many observations were seen for the play on the field for week 1 of the NFL preseason. Who were the winners for the Detroit Lions in this game and who were the losers. The video contains observations for Detroit Lions new QB Jared Goff and his performance for the game. How well did Jamaal Williams perform for the Lions run game. Lions Penei Sewell did he perform to his status for the 2021 NFL Draft? MicroMike talks about the Lions Defense, what did they show?
Things started out a bit rough. QB Jared Goff almost threw an interception on the first throw, Jamaal Williams gained little on the ground on the second play, followed up by RG Hal Vaitai and rookie Penei Sewell failing to protect, resulting in a sack. An ugly three-and-out.
With regards to the sack, Sewell’s getting a lot of heat on social media for his role in the play, but it appeared to me that Vaitai was the primary hole in that dam. Sewell did give up the edge on the play, but he wasn’t as much at fault on the play. That being said, it’s clear Sewell is still knocking the rust off after not playing for nearly two years, and his pass pro anchor needs to improve.
On the second drive, we saw what most expected from the Lions offense based on what we have seen at training camp. The Lions aren’t going to shy away from the run, Goff will check down rather than risk a turnover, but there will be an occasional deep shot or two to keep defenses honest.
When things go right, you get long sustained drives that typically result in points. But the inherent risk in this approach is that one penalty, mistake, or failed execution could derail the drive and result in no positive impact—like on the first drive.
The Lions’ second drive was 18 plays over 70 yards, exhausting nine minutes and 54 seconds, and resulted in a 28-yard field goal by Randy Bullock. On the drive, the Lions achieved seven first downs, three of them were successful third-down conversions.
Goff completed seven of his eight attempts for a total of 56 yards, but it was his one incompletion that was the difference between three and seven points. Here was his best throw, finding the turkey hole against zone coverage:
