On Thursday, the Detroit Lions’ official YouTube channel posted the sixth episode of their fantastic video series Behind the Den. The episode is nearly nine minutes long, and can be viewed in its entirety on the team’s site or on YouTube:

In addition to voiceovers and visuals from the broadcast, there is some fun footage of defensive tackle Kevin Strong mic’d up getting the team pumped before the game. Although the team didn’t have much going on in the first half, when the second half highlights kick in, you get great splice-ins of Godwin Igwebuike and Derrick Barnes from the post-game interviews reacting to their big moments.

About four-and-a-half minutes into the video, everything shifts to footage of the coaches talking about the preparation going forward from the Pittsburgh game. Lots and lots of defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn, so you know it’s good stuff. Some particularly nice parts show Glenn coaching up rookies Tavante Beckett and AJ Parker on the practice field. “I ain’t never gonna stop you from making a play,” Glenn tells Parker. “Just make sure you can make that.”

To cap it off, we have offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn and head coach Dan Campbell join in with thoughts on the coaching staff and team leadership’s collaborative spirit. By the end of the video, you’ll want to join the team and find some walls to run through against Indianapolis tonight.

Now, on to the rest of today’s Notes:

  • The Lions have some community stuff going on for back to school:

Additionally, they announced that Detroit Lions Charities is now the Detroit Lions Foundation. More on that change here.

  • If you are attending the preseason game tonight, Ford Field is encouraging the use of face coverings and will provide complimentary masks to those who want them. According to MLive’s Kyle Meinke, this is just a recommendation and not a mandatory requirement for guests attending the game.
