Detroit Lions defense, D’Andre Swift punish Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville, Fla. —Whether it was the result of a simplified game plan, or an inferior opponent, the Detroit Lions delivered their most complete performance of the season coming out of the bye.

The Lions jumped out to an early lead and never let up, hammering the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars, 34-16, on Sunday. 

The 34 points were the most the Lions have scored during Matt Patricia’s two-plus seasons as coach, while the victory should temporarily quiet calls for his job after the team’s disappointing start to the season. 

Grabbing an early lead has been a trend for the Lions, but taking care of it has been a struggle this season. The Lions got on the board first in this contest by taking advantage of the opponent’s miscues. After the Jaguars went three-and-out with the game’s opening possession, the Lions put seven on the board with a 10-play drive that covered 50 yards.
