Carr has 3 INTs to Davis' 4 fumbles and all have resulted in TDs as to where 3 of Davis' 4 fumbles resulted in TDs.
Bottom line is the offense needs to hold on to the ball. We do this, we win.
Can we get our facts straight folks EVER?
2 of DD's resulted in TDs
2 of DC's resulted in TDs
For the record none of the resulting TDs were gimmes. Here is the rundown of the yards needed to score off each of the ensuing TDs.
Carr INT v. Det 63 yards to the score
DD FUMBLE v. Det 79 yards to the score
DD Fumble v. SD 45 to score
Carr INT v. SD 49 to score
So we're talking about short fields on 2 but not ridiculously short fields or gimme TDs. I wish our D would get some onus put on them instead of getting a free pass. Reality is turnovers included the Lions scored their points pretty legitimately.
