Even though Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia had to wait 11 months to experience the thrill of victory, he insisted relief didn't describe his feelings. ''I don't ride the roller coaster,'' Patricia said Monday, a day after ending an 11-game losing streak at Arizona. The Lions looked like they might be headed for rock bottom after an 0-2 start.
Detroit Lions rookie cornerback Jeff Okudah wasn’t happy with the team’s performance in their first two games of the 2020 NFL season. The Lions fell 27-23 to the Chicago Bears in Week 1, despite holding a 17-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, and the following week against the Green Bay Packers, Detroit allowed 42 points to Aaron Rodgers and company. The Lions blew double-digit leads in both games, and Okudah wasn’t going to let that happen against the Arizona Cardinals.
The Lions got off the schneid against the Arizona Cardinals on September, 27, 2020, winning 26-23. The Detroit Lions had their first interception of the season when Duron Harmon picked off an errant Kyler Murray pass. The pass was pressured by Jamie Collins Sr.
