Smith comes back big with two plays for a TD

Posted by ttwentyman on November 20, 2011 – 2:54 pm

Welcome back Kevin Smith.

Needing a spark after turning the ball over on their first three possessions, Lions RB Kevin Smith churned up a 46-yard run and a 28-yard screen pass from Matthew Stafford to put the first Lion points on the board.

Smith ran tough against the Bears last week and Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said he’d probably get a bigger role in the offense today.

Unfortunately, the Lions special teams coverage unit proceeded to give up a 101-yard kickoff return for a touchdown after the Smith touchdown and the Lions are back to having to climb out of a 10-point hole.

    I am watching the game and the Lions look sick! No Excuse for extremely poor special teams play on kickoffs, punts and coverage! KS needs more touches, and receivers need to get open. CBs and Safeties not coming up and making plays like earlier in season. They are quitting after disappointments and turnovers. Just saw two pursuing defenders take each other out of pursuing Newton!
    Play calling is poor, so many receivers and no options for Matt. Looks very much like the Lions of old! and a very disappointing. Illegal hands to the face just gave Panthers back football after punt, BAD< BAD< BAD. Looking like LOSERS all over AGAIN!
