10 takeaways from the Detroit Lions 2015 season

If you had a chance to watch the Lions this season, which you probably did if you are reading this, you most definitely noticed one of the best playmakers in the NFL, Theo Riddick. In 2015, the 24-year-old out of Notre Dame hauled in 80 catches, a Detroit Lions record for the running back position. It seemed like if the offense needed to make a play, Riddick was there to make something happen. He is shifty, fast, has good hands and understands the offense. Riddick will continue to be a weapon for Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense in 2016.


3 – Matt Prater is one of the best

In 2014, Matt Prater struggled for the Lions but in 2015, he was money in the bank. The former Denver Bronco’s kicker connected on 22 of 24 field goal attempts, including hitting 5 0f 6 from 50 yards or more. In the Lions final game of the season, Prater set the Lions all-time record when he drilled a 59-yard field goal at Soldier Field against the Chicago Bears. This season proved that Prater still has what it takes to get the job done as an NFL kicker.
