Detroit Lions Strategy And Personnel 9-10-12

TE Brandon Pettigrew dropped a sure touchdown pass at the end of the first half, but he more than made up for it. With the Lions down 20-13 in the fourth quarter, Stafford went to Pettigrew three times, for 20, 18 and 24 yards, part of a lightning-fast 80-yard touchdown drive. “I think I owed it to the team to at least make those catches,” Pettigrew said. “I gave up a big play earlier in the game, that was the least I could do.” Pettigrew had five catches (he was targeted 10 times) for 77 yards.

–PK Jason Hanson became the first player in NFL history to play 21 seasons for the team that drafted him. “It’s great,” he said. “But I’m numb to the old-man awards now. I’ll take them without complaining. I’ve been saying all these years, it’s been a blessing for my family to be in the same place so I think God for that, truly.” Hanson celebrated by kicking field goals of 41 and 45 yards.
