Lions Notes: Marvin Jones, Kevin Strong PFF’s highest-graded Lions against Vikings

At least two Lions managed to shine Sunday against the Vikings.

In an otherwise blah loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, at least two Detroit Lions walked away from Ford Field looking pretty good.

According to Pro Football Focus, receiver Marvin Jones Jr. and defensive tackle Kevin Strong Jr. were the Lions’ highest-graded players from Week 7 who played a minimum of 25 snaps.

I’m sure you don’t need reminding, but let’s do it anyway because it feels good: Jones went off Sunday with 10 catches for 93 yards and four touchdowns. Strong had two tackles and three of Detroit’s five quarterback hurries.

  • Sorry.

  • Loved this anecdote at the beginning of Michael Rothstein’s piece for ESPN, highlighting how Justin Coleman playfully takes a swipe at anything his wife is carrying around the house. For practice, of course.

  • Happy Birthday Rick Wagner!
