There was a few bad punts (good starting position).
Ike dropped a possible pick-six on the opening of one drive. It turned into a good drive for the Lions (their only "long" drive of the day).
Joiqan Bell had a long run and a long screen (on the "good" drive).
As Cyphon said, Ike was on single coverage a lot... without safety help. He did fairly well, but Megatron is Megatron (Deion Sanders would have had difficulty playing 1:1 against Megatron).
