the Lions defense played a TON of snaps in those games

DETROIT (AP) — Matt Patricia weaved his way through a crowd to hug the man who helped him live a dream.Patricia beat mentor Bill Belichick , seemingly making all the right moves to help the Detroit Lions defeat the New England Patriots 26-10 Sunday night.“I’m sure it meant a lot, his first win as a head coach,” Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford said. “Probably no sweeter than to do it against your old team.“We needed this one.”The Lions (1-2) suddenly looked like a team with a plan on offense and defense under their first-year coach, and former New England assistant. They opened the season with a 31-point loss to the New York Jets at home and fell short in a comeback at San Francisco.Patricia was given a game ball by his players, but refused to relish in the moment.“I’m just happy for the guys,” he said. “They’re the ones who deserve it,” he said.The Patriots (1-2) have had weaknesses exposed on both sides of the ball, losing two of their first three games for the first time since 2012.And, Belichick was in no mood to reflect on his former defensive coordinator earning his first win.“My job is my football team,” said Belichick , who is 14-9 against former assistants. “That’s what I’m worried about. That’s what I’m concerned about.”Patricia and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also hugged briefly at midfield after the game and other New England players made a point of connecting with their former coach.Detroit was in control from the start, creating holes for rookie running back Kerryon Johnson and giving Matthew Stafford time to pass.Johnson had 101 yards rushing on 16 carries, becoming the first player to reach the mark for the Lions since Reggie Bush ran for 117 yards against Green Bay on Nov. 28, 2013. Detroit’s 70-game stretch without a 100-yard rusher was the longest since the NFL-AFL merger.“We knew we needed to run the ball and take some of the pressure off Stafford and the receivers if we wanted to win this game,” Johnson said. “The offensive line was hitting holes and we were attacking. That’s the most physical game they’ve played all year, and we were able to take advantage of it.”Brady pulled the Patriots within three points on a 10-yard TD pass to James White early in the third.Detroit refused to let the five-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback get any closer.Stafford responded with a 33-yard TD pass, capping a 10-play, 75-yard drive that took more than 6 minutes off the clock.Darius Slay picked off Brady’s pass at the Detroit 15 midway through the fourth quarter, helping the Lions seal the win.While Patricia and his players downplayed how much he could help them prepare for a team he helped coach the previous 14 years, Slay said it was a factor.“He knows everything about that team and he made sure we knew it as well ,” Slay said.THE QBSStafford was 27 of 36 for 262 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Brady was 12 of 24 for 113 yards with a touchdown and an interception.THAT’S COACHINGDetroit ran the play clock down often in the second half, seemingly choosing to shorten the game and keep Brady off the field.“That was a key part of the game,” Patricia said. “You certainly don’t want to give the ball back to them.”Fans booed at Ford Field when Patricia chose to kick a 38-yard field goal instead of going for it on fourth-and-1.“Any points against a team like that is going to be a good thing,” Stafford said. “We had a positive drive and you would hate to come away from it with no points.”Patricia also won a challenge , getting a call overturned that gave Stafford a 5-yard touchdown pass to put Detroit ahead 10-0.ALMOST A LIONNew England tight end Rob Gronkowski confirmed an ESPN report in which sources said he threatened to retire instead of being traded to Detroit in the offseason.“Yeah, it happened,” Gronkowski said. “Brady’s my quarterback. That’s all. I’m not going anywhere without Brady.”INJURY REPORTPatriots: WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was inactive, delaying his New England debut, after warming up with teammates. S Patrick Chung and DE Trey Flowers were inactive because of concussions. RB Rex Burkhead left the game in the second half with a neck injury.Lions: DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) was inactive.UP NEXTPatriots: Hosts the AFC-East leading Miami Dolphins (3-0).Lions: Play at Dallas (1-2).Lions-Packers snap count observations: Da’Shawn Hand, Romeo Okwara thriving in increased roles Here are the snap counts for the Detroit Lions’ Week 5 win over the Green Bay Packers.Offense:QuarterbacksMatthew Stafford: 62 (100%)Running backsKerryon Johnson: 29 (47%)Theo Riddick: 19 (31%)LeGarrette Blount: 18 (29%)Ameer Abdullah: 0 (0%) — 4 special teams snap (14%)FullbacksNick Bellore: 11 (18%) — 16 (57%)Tight endsLuke Willson: 34 (55%) — 11 (39%)Levine Toilolo: 32 (52%) — 8 (29%)Wide receiversMarvin Jones Jr.: 58 (94%) — 1 (4%)Kenny Golladay: 49 (79%)Golden Tate: 48 (77%) — 1 (4%)TJ Jones: 9 (15%) — 6 (21%)Offensive tacklesRick Wagner: 62 (100%) — 6 (21%)Taylor Decker: 62 (100%) — 4 (14%)Guards/centersGraham Glasgow: 62 (100%) — 6 (21%)Frank Ragnow: 62 (100%) — 6 (21%)Kenny Wiggins: 62 (100%) — 6 (21%)Joe Dahl: 3 (5%) — 2 (7%)Observations:For the third time this season , Kerryon Johnson led the running backs in snaps, even after missing the finale few series due to an ankle injury. His 47 percent of snaps matched his career-high despite the late injury. Interesting that Marvin Jones Jr. reclaimed the most snaps among receivers, taking it from Kenny Golladay. Yet it was Golladay who produced more against the Packers.Cause for concern? Maybe I’m being overly anxious, but the fact that Taylor Decker only played in four special teams snaps while the rest of the offensive line played in six is, at the very least, a bit odd. Sometimes a coaching staff decides to lower the special teams snaps for a guy dealing with an injury, and in the past Decker has played the same amount as every other offensive lineman. Not sure what’s going on there. Despite his 2018 debut, Ameer Abdullah was limited to just kickoff return duties on Sunday. Defense:Defensive endRomeo Okwara: 73 (90%) — 1 (4%)Da’Shawn Hand: 62 (77%) — 6 (21%)Kerry Hyder: 34 (42%) — 3 (11%)Eric Lee: 8 (10%) — 6 (21%)Defensive tackleA’Shawn Robinson: 32 (40%) — 10 (37%)Ricky Jean Francois: 24 (30%) — 5 (18%)Sylvester Williams: 1 (1%) — 5 (18%)LinebackersDevon Kennard: 78 (96%) — 6 (21%)Jarrad Davis: 77 (95%) — 6 (21%)Jalen Reeves-Maybin: 32 (40%) — 16 (57%)Christian Jones: 24 (30%) — 15 (54%)Marquis Flowers: 0 (0%) — 9 (32%)CornerbacksQuandre Diggs: 81 (100%) — 1 (4%)Nevin Lawson: 80 (99%) — 9 (32%)Darius Slay: 78 (96%) — 5 (18%)DeShawn Shead: 45 (56%) — 15 (54%)Teez Tabor: 32 (40%) — 6 (21%)Cre’Von LeBlanc: 26 (32%) — 8 (29%)Jamal Agnew: 11 (14%) — 10 (36%)SafetyGlover Quin: 81 (100%) — 7 (25%)Tracy Walker: 12 (15%) — 10 (36%)Miles Killebrew: 0 (0%) — 21 (75%)Charles Washington: 0 (0%) — 16 (57%)Observations:Can we take a moment and appreciate what Romeo Okwara has done in the past three weeks? As he’s learning a new defensive system, Okwara has now been asked to play over 80 percent of snaps in three straight games—and the Lions defense played a TON of snaps in those games. This time the number got bumped up to 90 percent, and Okwara responded with two sacks. Sylvester Williams has been seriously demoted since the beginning of the year. Granted , the Lions got out to an early lead, meaning Williams wasn’t needed as much—he’s a much better run stuffer than pass rusher. However, one snap is one snap. A’Shawn Robinson is a clear starter now. Sticking with the defensive line, Da’Shawn Hand saw a career-high in snap percentages, as the Lions continue to throw more and more work his way. He’s undoubtedly earned it. Interesting to see Jalen Reeves-Maybin have an increased role vs. the Packers. The Lions clearly valued his coverage ability more than that of Christian Jones. In the beat-up secondary, the Lions chose to go heavy on the corners and light on the safeties—although Diggs should be considered both. As a result, Tracy Walker didn’t get much playing time, while DeShawn Shead was given a bigger role—likely to handle tight end Jimmy Graham. Special teamsSam Martin: 16 (57%)Don Muhlbach: 11 (39%)Matt Prater: 7 (25%)
