DeAndre Levy is playing at a Pro Bowl level right now
Levy continued his outstanding season on Sunday with another great game. He tied for the team lead with 7 tackles, all of which were of the solo variety. What's more, he had 2 interceptions, bringing his season total to 4. Coming into this season, Levy had a total of 5 interceptions in his career, meaning he's already nearly matched that number in only six games. If Levy keeps this up, he will be a Pro Bowler this season.
Joseph Fauria needs even more playing time
Fauria had 3 targets, 3 catches and 3 touchdowns on Sunday. Now that's efficiency. He has proven that he is a big-time weapon in the red zone, but I want to see more of him before the Lions get inside the 20-yard line. Brandon Pettigrew has really stepped it up as of late, but especially with Tony Scheffler out, Fauria deserves even more looks. He's been reliable when the ball has come his way, unlike most Lions targets, and I really want to see them unleash Fauria now that he's been "freed."
The dropped passes have got to stop
As mentioned, Fauria has been quite reliable when it comes to catching passes thrown his way. Guys like Kris Durham, Reggie Bush and even Calvin Johnson have not been all that reliable, though. They are just some of the Lions players who have been dealing with a case of the dropsies. As a team, the Lions are among the worst in the NFL in drops, and they had 6 at one point during Sunday's game. Matthew Stafford had a pretty solid stat line against the Browns (25 for 43 for 248 yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception), but it would have been even better if not for all the drops.
