Lions rushing attempts this year? 4th highest since 1989

weird that 95 is the lowest and I think that was the year we were the #1 offense. IIRC.

That was one of those “Big Buck” years where the Lions started out 1-3 and were 2-5 before going 8-1 down the stretch to save Fontes’ job.

Moore had 1686 receiving yards (a Lions record until Calvin broke it), Perriman had 1488 yards, and Morton 590 yards. They definitely passed more during the winning streak. Nonetheless, Sanders still rushed for 1500 yards.

What a great change to have balance…

There seems to be a mild correlation… more rush attempts, better record
