While the beginning of the 2018 season likely didn’t go as the Detroit Lions had planned, there have been some undoubtedly exciting moments. The Lions have some very talented players—especially at the skill positions—which can lead to some phenomenal plays and jaw-dropping feats.

It’s only been five games, but the Lions themselves have collected the top 10 plays from the offense in this young season, and it’s a pretty entertaining montage of plays.

As you may expect, the list is dominated by the likes of Kenny Golladay and Kerryon Johnson, who have been highlight-reel machines through five games. But don’t you worry, there’s plenty of Golden Tate YAC in there for you, too.


  • Matthew Stafford had a fairly candid and open radio interview with Dan Patrick. He still doesn’t say much, but he’s much more relaxed than in a stuffy press conference setting:

  • Lions vs. Packers was the highest-rated 1 p.m. game last week and the third most-viewed television program all week.

  • Want a chance to meet Lions rookie running back Kerryon Johnson? There’s a meet-and-greet with him this weekend!
