In a last ditch effort to jump start their offense, the Lions lined tight end Eric Ebron up in the backfield at the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ebron took the jet sweep play to the right, stretched the ball across the goal line for what proved to be the decisive score late in the game.

Where did the Lions get such a play?

It wasn't from the Minnesota Vikings as one media member suggested, but a source much further to the south.

"We stole it from (the) New Orleans Saints," Ebron admitted. "This is a copycat league, someone else is going to run it in two more weeks, watch."

If the lions defense isn't anything like Denver with Ziggy healthy, hopefully we can beat their weapons.

This could be one of those games where Brees needs to do what he did week 1 in 2009.

Every now and then you will see a team do the fake reverse run up the middle that we used to do with Reggie and Deuce
