“We will be better.” That’s the promise safety Duron Harmon is making after a gut-wrenching loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

The Detroit Lions’ 2019 fourth-quarter woes continued into this season as they squandered a 23-6 lead into the third quarter and lost 27-23.

While this offseason the offense coined the term “dagger time” to emphasize closing games the right way, Harmon said making those big stops late in the game matters on the other side of the ball as well.

“We just didn’t finish. We gotta finish. We talk about being a good football team and if you don’t finish, it doesn’t matter. Injuries, none of that matters, scheme, none of that matters, at the end of the day we gotta finish,” he said.

Though the defense was pretty beat up, Harmon wouldn’t accept that as an excuse. He said all teams face injuries — it’s next man up.

“When somebody gets hurt, you expect to continue to perform at a high level. We didn’t do that in the fourth quarter,” he said.

At the end of the day, Harmon is all in on the Lions and promises better results.

“We will be better, because I believe in the team, I believe in the coaching staff, I believe in what we do. I believe in the process that we take. Obviously it didn’t end the way that we wanted it to, but we know what we need to do to fix it, and we will fix it,” he said.
