Lions looking to simplify offensive playbook

After only being able to muster six points against the NFL’s top team, the Arizona Cardinals, last week, the coaching staff are looking to modify the playbook some.  The Lions are the only team in the NFL with a winning record yet ranking in the bottom ten in scoring in the league.

Offensive Coordinator Joe Lombardi is looking to simplify the play calling.

“You have a certain number of calls or maybe you get this one play repped against one or maybe two defenses, so if you have less calls you can kind of show more situations and you’re not just talking about them,” Lombardi told the Detroit Free Press. “It’s just a matter of practicing fewer plays and then they’re able to handle all the different looks that come up.”

After losing to the Cardinals 6-14, the Lions will now face the hard-charging New England Patriots in Foxborough.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours now!
