What led to the Lions sudden and seemingly momentary offensive spurt?
Bad blitzes? Broken coverage? Biting on play action like the first Megatron TD? Short field due to...?
Broken coverage and missed tackles. The one big play Ike was supposed to have Clark deep to help and Clark bit on a short route. That left Tron wide open and he made the catch and shedded Ike like he was a small child.
More or less every scoring drive they had resulted from receivers being mostly wide open.
