NFL Week 13 grades: Lion get an 'A+' for destroying the Jaguars

Detroit 40-14 over Jacksonville

This game turned into a shootout, but someone forgot to tell the Jaguars that, because their offense didn’t show up. The Jags fumbled on their opening drive and things didn’t get much better after that. Trevor Lawrence was erratic (17 of 31) in a game that he had to leave briefly after taking a huge hit in the first half. As bad as the Jags were on offense, their defense was worse. They were horrible in the red zone and they didn’t force the Lions to punt a single time in the game.

When the Lions offense is clicking, it’s one of the most exciting units in the NFL and it was clicking on Sunday. The Lions were so good on offense that they didn’t punt a single time against Jacksonville. Jared Goff was on fired, throwing for 340 yards and two touchdowns, which both went to Amon-Ra St. Brown, who finished with 11 catches for 114 yards. With four wins in their past five games, the Lions are suddenly one of the hottest teams in the NFL and if they keep winning, they might soon enter the NFC wild card conversation.

In fairness to trevor Lawrence, I don’t think he had an awful game… yeah he threw a lot of passes out of bounds, but his receivers dropped quite a few passes and didn’t help him out either.
