Lions coach Jimmy Caldwell on Sunday reiterated that the Lions offense needs to get much better at running the football, saying that the team needs to be “more consistent” when it comes to getting the ball to its receivers.
Caldwell spoke to reporters after practice, and the Lions have not had a game without an offensive touchdown since they scored eight straight in Week 6.
“You have to be consistent.
It’s tough,” Caldwell said.
“That’s why we have a bunch of guys, and I think that’s a lot of it, and we have to get back to that.
We have to have a rhythm and then some consistency.
The Lions are 8-4 when scoring more than 20 points, including an eight-game winning streak. “
We’ve got to get to a point where we have more consistency and we can do that.”
The Lions are 8-4 when scoring more than 20 points, including an eight-game winning streak.
The Lions have scored more than 50 points in seven of the last eight games.
Caldwell said the team still needs to improve its overall play, but that the most important thing is for the offense to “get back to being more consistent.”
The Detroit Lions have only averaged a league-high 5.8 yards per carry this season, which is the fourth-worst mark in the league.
