Lions’ offense makes it look easy on first drive in New Orleans
The Saints’ defense couldn’t stop much of anything on the Lions’ first drive today.
Detroit had a seven-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a David Montgomery two-yard touchdown run to take a 7-0 lead. Jared Goff threw only one pass, a 12-yard completion to Jameson Williams.
Jahmyr Gibbs had the biggest play, a 36-yard run, while Montgomery ground out 23 yards on five carries.
After a strong start to the season, the Lions have looked a little shaky in recent weeks. Early today they’re having no trouble.
