    Unsung ...“hero” of the week? Detroit Lions vs. New York Jets There are 17 weeks in an NFL season Amani Oruwariye Detroit Lions Jersey , and right now nobody’s sure if that’s a good or bad thing for Detroit Lions fans. Regardless of outcome, it’s time to hand out this week’s award for unsung hero of the week. The series highlights one player whose performance, be it throughout the whole game or in a single moment, played an important role in the Lions’ success but may not have been the most memorable. Unsung hero of the week: Sam MartinHear me out here—I know the image of Martin’s failed tackle on Andre Roberts is burned into your memory, but just wait. When it came to punting Martin had a solid day, and frankly just not screwing up is enough to earn him this week’s honors. Martin averaged 50.7 yards on three punts with a long of 55 yards to go with manageable hang times in the 4.4-4.7 second range. He did his job when it came to punting Amani Oruwariye Jersey 2019 , but like many facets of this team the preseason struggles made a reappearance, this time in punt coverage.Tavon Wilson saved one punt return from a touchdown by taking down former Lion Andre Roberts in field goal range. The next punt coverage play wouldn’t be so lucky, as Roberts tiptoed the sideline for a 78-yard return touchdown. As for tackling, it’s obviously not Martin’s forte. On the punt that was returned for a touchdown Martin made a valiant effort to lead Roberts out of bounds. While the results weren’t there, it’s worth noting that Martin’s attempt was much closer to success than the typical tackling attempts of NFL specialists. Martin’s true heroism came on the punt before, where he managed to impede Roberts just long enough for Tavon Wilson to come in and make the tackle. While the outcome of the next punt and just about the rest of the game was horrendous Color Rush Amani Oruwariye Jersey , Martin’s spirited efforts delayed the inevitable for just a little longer. There’s not much to celebrate, and Martin’s solid punting and suboptimal tackling are the closest thing to an unsung hero that the Lions had this week. Whose decent performance do you think went unnoticed? Let us know in the comments. The last time the Lions had a 100-yard rusher in a game, Kerryon Johnson was a junior in high school.And he started hearing about that streak as soon as he was drafted this spring., which made snapping it last night a relief for a lot of people.“I think it was probably the moment I was drafted [I heard it], I can’t remember for sure,” Johnson said.

Obviously it wasn’t the last.“But it was the last time I really cared about it. Like I said, I came in ready to work, ready to run. We came in ready to work. We came in ready to run. And that’s how we went through the offseason, that’s how we went through fall camp, and that’s how we went through the regular season.”Johnson’s 101 yards marked the first time the Lions had a 100-yard rusher since Thanksgiving 2013, when Reggie Bush hit that plateau.It was momentous enough that Lions legend Barry Sanders tweeted out his congratulations Amani Oruwariye Jersey Womens , another reminder of how long it has been since they’ve been able to count on the run game around there.
    Hey @Lions fans, send your congrats to @AyeyoKEJO – 100 yards rushing for the 1st time in a while.— Barry Sanders (@BarrySanders) September 24, 2018
