No matter the outcome, there can be something good, something memorable, in every game.
Andy Jones was an example of that in the Detroit Lions’ loss to the Buffalo Bills in what has been an expanded role for him playing wide receiver and special teams late in the season.
Jones caught the first touchdown pass of his career. What we learned is that after the celebration – which didn’t last long – Jones went right back to work and did his job on special teams.
Among the other things we learned is that long snapper Don Muhlbach is revered by his teammates – which is no surprise; Quandre Diggs can step in on short notice and excel at positions other than his primary job as a starting safety – which isn’t a surprise, either; rookie Tyrell Crosby is paying early dividends despite not really being in the Lions’ draft plans last April, and where they are in the standings had no impact on the outcome of the Lions’ four games against AFC East teams.
