Key Play on final drive vs Lions

25 posts in this topic

We all know that comeback on Sunday in Detroit was amazing!! What, in your opinion, was the "key" play on the final drive, other than the scoring play as time ran out.

Mine was the catch by Reggie Wayne that put us in Detroit territory. Once he made that catch, I told myself that we can actually score and win this game!!

The 15 yard horse collar penalty. Though i dont think that luck had any

intentions of sliding i dont think he would have picked up that

many yards before he was brought down

There was a few big plays made that drive. But I agree the catch that reggie made is what made it possible.

A few on the previous drive were possibly more important, and the bomb for a TD before the 2:00 warning was the key to it all.

Luck's run down the sideline, getting a lot more yards by out running Suh, and having the presence to keep tip-toeing down the sideline to squeeze every last yard out was a major key as well. That put us in a very manageable position to win imo.

I think the Reggie pass/catch put Detroit on their heels and cemented that "oh crap" feeling that something bad was about to happen....and for all their talent, IMO, there are few NFL defenses less equipped to deal with furious last-minute drives than the Lions.

Sure enough, they completely blew underneath coverage on Avery coming across for Luck's short TD pass after Luck went to the end zone three times.

Andrew played them like a fiddle.

Almost every positive play was key. The horse-collar was great, especially because it stopped the clock and essentially gave us another TO...

The key play imo was the drop in the back of the endzone by Reggie. Feel like that made the lions back up a bit more which let Avery run underneath

The throw to Reggie. That was a great pass dropped right in there in between triple coverage. It was on a third down that got us on the Lions end of the field.

Not to be over looked was that we picked up two fourth down plays on that drive.

I will give you an off the wall key play in the game. Not on the final drive but a key play nonetheless. On Luck's INT that was almost returned for a TD, he hustled his butt off and forced Lacey to block in the back. That is a pick six otherwise. The Lions settled for a FG instead of the TD.

Also The Lions throwing two incomplete passes with about four minutes left rather than running it. Had the Lions run the ball there the Colts run out of time at the end of the game. That's why I say the Lions are really their own worst enemy and both of these are examples of that.

The question was the key play in the game winning drive. A couple of you have the horse collar in the game winning drive , I thought was before.

was that lefeged wow!!! i thought that was Freeman he laid down the law on that hit... But i believe it was the play after that one that really was key.. That horrible punt gave us excellent field position... I don't think we win if we start on the 10 or 15 as opposed to the 28 yd line

That should have never been a 3rd down play as Luck easlly had the first down with his "9" yard run. Bad no replay from above on that one. But as you say it was an incredible throw.

It was pretty much the exact same throw he tried to make earlier in the game to Hilton I think it was that sailed on him and got picked. That shows me that Luck does grow during the course of the game.

I was incredgilious how they spotted it where they did. Essentially cost us a down because we spiked it after the run.

I thought that the Dwayne Allen catch was a pretty important play too. It wasn't a big gainer but it got us into good scoring position and he got out of bounds. But Reggie's catch was by far in my opinion the most important.

Albeit not a play, but amazing clock management to wrap up the game. We managed every second of the final 2 drives, where as Detroit blew it.

Ended up not costing us anything as we woud have spiked it regardless of the spot. So was as you say , just a lost down. However if the incredible throw and great catch are not made on 3rd and 1 , we would have been looking at 4th and one. Maybe had to run the ball and end up changing the plays for the remainedr of the game. Easily could have cost us the game. But who knows maybe it helped us as the Lions might have been looking for us to complete something shorter and easier to make sure of the 1st down ? Who knows....

Wan't sure but may have been in the first one. How about the bad punt that went out of bounds around the 25 instead of pinning us deep in our territory

    • Josh Ferguson!!!!!
      Odds are next year we'll be taking an OLB in the first round.   Perhaps a RB in the 2nd.     He'll be a very good back,  but he won't be Fournette or Chubb or McCaffrey.   But he'll be very, very good.       Next year's class is shockingly deep and talented.    A very rare class of RB's.   We should be able to get a very good one in the 2nd round.  
    • Josh Ferguson!!!!!
      He catches the ball well and especially downfield. Ferguson could end up being a good 3rd down option. I have no idea what he brings to the table on ST`s.
    • Offensive Line-Why is it so hard & my belief we have turned the corner
      I get that, but that kind of attitude is exactly why our line has been so disappointing. Its mostly these mid round picks that a lot of people seem to think are adequate. There is a reason guys like Kelly go in the first round despite that attitude.     
    • Offensive Line-Why is it so hard & my belief we have turned the corner
      I got no problem with him at all.  I think the problem for some people is they feel most 1st rounders should be "position" guys like QB, RB, WR, etc.  This guy plays in the trenches and many feel those guys can be had later in the draft, and they can.  But when you have a prospect such as Mayock claims he is I don't see why it is such a "reach" to take him anywhere in the draft.  Put it this way, if this guy turns out to be the next Saturday then it will have been WELL worth the pick.  At worst he is likely a mere solid player for many years.   I was happy with the decision as well.  In truth, I was HOPING we could take one of the top pass rushers then address OL in round 2 but it didn't materialize.  Yes, Lawson was there but I'm not sure he is top level like Kelly is at his position.  They got the best prospect at his position in a position of need.  Great job IMHO.  Only time will tell if it was the right decision.

      Chiefs vs Cardinals.  Who knows, it might actually happen (although I won't be holding my breath)
