I blame the FOX commentators

Toward the beginning of the game they mentioned that the Lions really were not penalized that much, right after the comment 3 penalties and a 3rd and 32. Then later in the game they mentioned MCDC did not want to use Swift as a workhorse since he is still young and wanted to keep him healthy, then a few plays later he gets hurt.


They also said the Lions had a chance, but we saw what happened next.

I always assume Joe Buck’s negativity towards the Lions will come to haunt us in the 4th quarter.
