What did C.J. Gardner-Johnson Say?

Gardner-Johnson did not mince words when reacting to Reid's fourth-down gamble. He expressed feeling disrespected by the decision, as it indicated a lack of faith in the Lions' defense to stop Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

“No respect,” Gardner-Johnson told USA TODAY Sports amid a festive visitor’s locker room after the stunning 21-20 victory. “You’re going for it on fourth-and-20, you’ve got no respect for us.

Gardner-Johnson credited Detroit's defensive coordinator, Aaron Glenn, for putting the team in the right position to secure a 21-20 victory. The outcome of the game highlighted the Lions' determination and their ability to rise to the occasion when challenged.

“That’s not going against the players, it’s the coordinator not thinking we’re going to be prepared in the situation. I just thank A.G. (Aaron Glenn, Detroit’s defensive coordinator) for putting us in the right situation to win the game.”
