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.
