Lions stats so far and on-pace numbers for 2013

Leon Halip

What kind of stats are Detroit Lions players on pace for in 2013?

With the 2013 regular season half over for the Detroit Lions, now is an ideal time to examine what kind of numbers players have put up so far. Also, it's an ideal time to examine what kind of numbers players are on pace for. With that in mind, below you can check out both current and projected stats for various Lions players.

First, though, a disclaimer: For the guys who didn't play in all eight games in the first half of the season -- Reggie Bush, Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson, Devin Taylor and Nick Fairley -- their projected numbers were calculated a little differently. Rather than simply multiple their stats by two to get the on-pace numbers, I divided their current numbers by how many games they actually played. I then multiplied that by the maximum number of games they can play in 2013. For Burleson, for example, he played in three of the first eight games, so his projected stats are based on playing in 11 games this season. (Yes, I'm assuming these guys will make it through the second half of the season without missing any action.)

Quarterback Comp. Att. Pct. Yards TD INT Sacks Rushes Yards TD Lost fum.
Matthew Stafford 211 338 62.4 2617 16 6 10 20 25 2 1
On pace for 422 676 62.4 5234 32 12 20 40 50 4 2

Stafford is on pace to finish just a single yard behind second place for the most yards passing ever in a single season.

Running backs Rushes Yards Avg. TD Rec. Tar. Yards TD Lost fum.
Reggie Bush 119 518 4.4 2 31 43 335 2 1

Joique Bell 62 236 3.8 4 27 34 296 0 1
On pace for 124 472 3.8 8 54 68 592 0 2

Bush is currently on pace for 1,828 total yards. Imagine if he hadn't missed a game in the first half of the season.

Wide receivers Rec. Tar. Yards TD Lost fum.
Calvin Johnson 47 79 821 7 1

Kris Durham 25 46 310 1 0

Nate Burleson 19 23 239 0 0
On pace for 70 84 876 0 0

The same can be said about Johnson. Imagine if he hadn't missed a game. Even with only seven games, he's on pace for another ridiculous season.

Tight ends Rec. Tar. Yards TD Lost fum.
Brandon Pettigrew 26 41 225 1 1
On pace for 52 82 450 2 2






Joseph Fauria 8 13 81 5 0
On pace for 16 26 162 10 0

If Fauria actually finishes with 10 touchdowns on 16 catches, that will be one heck of a percentage.

Defensive ends Tackles Sacks TFL PD INT FF FR TD
Willie Young 24 2 1 0 0 0 0 0
On pace for 48 4 2 0 0 0 0 0









Ziggy Ansah 19 3 1 1 0 2 0 0
On pace for 38 6 2 2 0 4 0 0









Devin Taylor 8 1 1 0 0 1 0 0
On pace for 19 2 2 0 0 2 0 0

Only 12 total sacks from the Lions' defensive ends would be pretty disappointing. (Israel Idonije doesn't have any sacks so far this season.)

Defensive tackles Tackles Sacks TFL PD INT FF FR TD
Ndamukong Suh 22 3.5 4 1 0 1 0 0
On pace for 44 7 8 2 0 2 0 0









Nick Fairley 14 1.5 0 1 0 0 2 1
On pace for 30 3 0 2 0 0 4 2

The important stat for Suh is one kept by Pro Football Focus -- quarterback hurries. He leads the league with 31 already this season, and second place only has 21. He may not be getting a ton of sacks, but he's generating a lot of pressure.

Linebackers Tackles Sacks TFL PD INT FF FR TD
Stephen Tulloch 65 2 3 2 1 0 0 0

DeAndre Levy 63 0 3 7 4 1 0 1

Ashlee Palmer 21 0 4 0 0 0 0 0
On pace for 42 0 8 0 0 0 0 0

If Levy actually does pull off something close to his on-pace numbers, he should be an All-Pro this season.

Cornerbacks Tackles Sacks TFL PD INT FF FR TD
Chris Houston 32 0 1 7 1 0 0 0

Darius Slay 23 0 0 2 0 0 0 0
On pace for 46 0 0 4 0 0 0 0

Only 2 interceptions would be pretty disappointing for the cornerbacks.

Safeties Tackles Sacks TFL PD INT FF FR TD
Louis Delmas 31 0 0 6 2 0 0 0

Glover Quin 28 0 1 5 2 0 1 0
On pace for 56 0 2 10 4 0 2 0

The best stat for Delmas is that he's on pace to play his first ever full season. Actually, he's already equaled the number of games he played all last season.

David Akers 12 15 25 25

2 of Akers' 3 missed field goals in the first half of the season were blocked.
