Pat Caputo: Lions Make Way Too Many Mistakes To Be Praised For Their Effort Or Progress
There will be those who look at the Lions’ 28-20 loss to the New York Giants Sunday, and see an improved football team that didn’t quit under adverse circumstances on the road against a quality opponent.
They will, however, be missing the point about why the Lions tied their own NFL record with a 24th consecutive road defeat.
In truth, the Lions may never win on the road again if they continue to play like they did Sunday game-in, game-out. They made so many mistakes, the Lions were fortunate it was even semi-close.
