Key Player of the Game: Jamal Agnew

Jamal Agnew, a cornerback and returner, helped seal the victory for Detroit Monday night. He returned 3 punts for an average of 33 yards per return, taking one 88 yards for a touchdown. The Lions are not special teams specialists, so any time a returner has a big game, he stands out amongst the rest. Jamal Agnew helped put the Giants away with a gut-wrenching return that sucked the air right out of the Meadowlands.

GAME RECAP AND ANALYSIS

The Detroit Lions took care of business on the road Monday night against the Giants, getting the win by a score of 24-10. Unlike last week, Detroit started playing well in the first quarter and never looked back.

Matthew Stafford found Marvin Jones in the end zone for a 27 yard completion, adding the first seven of 24 points on the night.

The Giants started off the second quarter with a quick touchdown off an Eli Manning 18 yard pass to Evan Engram for an early seven points.

After an interesting exchange that saw a Lions fumble, directly followed by an interception from Manning, ended with a seven yard touchdown pass to Eric Ebron. The next Lions score came from Matt Prater on a 56 yard circus field goal near the end of the first half.

After a turnover on downs for New York, Jamal Agnew returned the punt 88 yards for a touchdown. Agnew’s return was the last score for both teams, a reassuring nail in the coffin return.

The Detroit Lions defense flourished, totaling five sacks on the night. Manning struggled to get anything going due to his poor offensive line production.

The Detroit Lions head back to Ford Field next week to take on the defending NFC Conference Champions, the Atlanta Falcons. Matthew Stafford and company will look to take down Matt Ryan and the rest of the Atlanta Falcons in a marquee matchup.

Originally from Michigan, I now reside in the sunshine state. I am a freshman at the University of Tampa majoring in sports journalism and sports have been an integral part of my life since my first steps. Up until third grade, sports were just a thing that I played. In third grade, I was introduced to the idea of storytelling. For my assignment I was supposed to write a one page story on anything I wanted. Instead, I wrote a chapter book about a baseball game. It was at that moment that I knew what I wanted to be when I grow up. Mixing sports and writing for me was a perfect match and I have been doing it ever since. Even though I now live in Florida, Michigan sports are where my heart is. The Detroit Lions, while tough to watch at times, are the only thing that gets me excited on Sunday’s. If you’re as passionate about the Lions as I am, sit back, relax, and take a seat.
