Amon-Ra St. Brown Detroit Lions offense must show up against Jets
It will be a battle between strengths when the Detroit Lions (6-7) Take on the N.Y. Sunday, the Jets (7-6) at MetLife Stadium
The Lions The Jets boast the No. 6 defense in the league (18.7 point/game).
Detroit Amon-Ra St. Brown, wide receiver, knows that the matchup, which Dan Campbell calls a “heavyweight bout”, will be tough for him and his team.
“It’s going be two good, and as I said, high powered offense against high-powered defense.” St. Brown According to reporters, Wednesday. It’s going to be hard. We are excited to see who they are, even though we know their names.
“They’re a great defense. They’re a top five defense in the league, I believe. They are very mobile. They hit. They have DBs and a strong front-seven so this will be a tough matchup. We are excited for it. We have to be prepared, because we are a very good offense. One side will win when they have a good offense and a great defense. We have to ensure that we bring the heat.
The second-year receiver is coming off an impressive six-catch, 68 yard receiving game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14. He’s also put up some impressive numbers in his five previous contests overall.
The aforementioned stretch will see the USC Product has caught 43 balls for 499 yards, three touchdowns and 86 percent of his targets from Lions signal caller. Jared Goff. This equates to an average of nine receptions per game and 100 yards per game.
Over the last five games, St. Brown has been almost impossible to stop from opposing defenses.
It doesn’t mean Sauce Gardner, the Jets No. 1 cornerback, will be given the assignment. St. Brown will be the No. 1 cornerback, and the favorite for Defensive Player of the Year. Why? Gardner, a Detroit King High School product, focuses his attention on receivers outside of the slot while St. Brown does most his work in the slot.
No matter who is covering him, St. Brown He is prepared for the challenge ahead of him when he faces the Jets, who boast a top-five pass defense. He is aware that his recent high intake of targets is not a given.
St. Brown stated, “I think every week’s different.” “Some weeks you feel like you might get more targets this week,” St. Brown said. But, I discovered in this league that sometimes you won’t get as many balls in those games. The games in which you think, “Oh, I probably won’t get the ball this game,” are the ones where you score the most and get the ball most. It’s not something I think about too often.
“Like I said before, once you get out there things happen. In practice, you might think, “This is the first read for quarterback, he’s going open.” But when you get out there in game, he’s not open, and the guy you never thought would pop will be open. It’s not something I think about too often. You never know what might happen in the game.
Since Detroit started the year with a record of 1-6, there has been a noticeable transformation. For St. Brown, it starts at Campbell, the second-year head man.
He instills that attitude every day. We follow him. He has never faltered. Campbell said St. Brown that he’s been the same person throughout the season. “And as players, we couldn’t ask for more. We want to win for him. Win for yourself. Do it for your city. Do it for everyone. It feels great right now to be winning. We still have a lot to do.”
The change in culture has been even more evident for the veterans of the team, such as Taylor Decker (7th year left tackle),
Since being drafted in the first round 2016 NFL Draft, Decker has been a Lions player. Since his second year in league, when Jim Caldwell was still on the sidelines in Detroit, Decker has not had a winning season.
All of a sudden, Detroit, which has won five of its six previous games, is playing meaningful football in December. It’s been a welcome change of pace for the veteran lineman.
Decker said Wednesday that he feels like he’s been through it all. Decker said that he is not an old man, but that he has played a lot of basketball. It’s amazing to see how we have been able to fight, scratch, and claw our way through this and finally start to have some success. Although it’s only a small sample, it’s a start. Now, the trick is to sustain that.
“It’s what great teams do, they sustain it (and not just over a 6-game stretch or 10-game stretch. It lasts for years and years, five years or even decades. It’s been enjoyable, it’s been satisfying. It’s been a validation for many guys, especially the younger ones who have come here. Although we didn’t achieve success immediately, it was a good sign that they have put in the effort.
