Pro Football Focus praises several Lions for play in Bills game

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The review of the Detroit Lions' game against the Buffalo Bills came back very positive, as expected.

Considering how dominant the Detroit Lions were last Thursday, this won't come as a huge surprise, but reviews were extremely positive for their game against the Buffalo Bills. Several Lions players stood out for their positive play in Pro Football Focus' review of the game, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

Let's start with the secondary. Thanks in part to the awful quarterbacking the Bills had, Bill Bentley earned a +3.4 grade, Rashean Mathis scored a +2.4 and Darius Slay earned a mark of +1.3. Bentley was actually named the player of the game for his performance, which included an interception.

Moving to the defensive line, Devin Taylor again received praise for his play, and he actually received a +2.7 grade for the entire preseason. PFF has been very high on Taylor, and he should get a lot of playing time in the regular season as a member of the rotation at defensive end.

Flipping over to the offensive side of the ball, the Lions' quarterbacks not named Matthew Stafford received positive grades for their play against the Bills. Kellen Moore earned a +1.8, while Shaun Hill got a +1.7.

Head on over to PFF for more on Thursday's game, and check out their recap of the Lions' cuts while you're at it.
