Neil Dutton reviews the Detroit Lions 2018 season, outlines players the team could lose to free agency and offers his thoughts on potential reinforcements the team should look to sign.
2018 IN SUMMARY
After back to back 9-7 campaigns, the Detroit Lions brought the Jim Caldwell era to an end after the 2017 season. In his stead, they appointed New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. It’s safe to say that the season was something of a let-down, as the Lions finished 6-10 and fourth in the NFC North. They had one run of back-to-back wins, beating the Packers 31-23 in Week 5 and then the Dolphins 32-21 in Week 7 after their bye week. The Lions would not score more than 22 points again until a 31-0 Week 17 blowout over the Packers. The Lions finished 25th in points scored, with 324, whilst surrendering the 16th fewest points with 360.
