Not a bad day from the coaching staff, but not a great one either. The defensive unit continues to flourish under this staff, while the offense is still inept thanks to a porous offensive line. It seemed like a lot of the play calling was conservative when this seemed like a perfect game to try and open up the offense. The offensive line continues to make it tough on this coaching staff to call effective plays. However, there were only a few instances in which I questioned what the offense was doing. The three play calls from the goal line, especially the QB draw were curious and there were a few times where the Lions seemed to be on a roll in the run game, yet threw. In other news, the wildcat kind of, sort of worked!

Grade: C+
