Dan Campbell and Jared Goff weigh in on Penei Sewell’s big catch

Head coach Dan Campbell and the Detroit Lions defended the den on Sunday afternoon by defeating the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 34-23 at Ford Field. With the win, the Lions are now within one game of .500, and, equally important, they have kept their playoff chances alive. Late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game, Lions OC Ben Johnson called a perfect trick play involving Jared Goff for Penei Sewell, and it worked perfectly.

What did Dan Campbell and Jared Goff about Penei Sewell’s big catch?

Here is what Dan Campbell and Jared Goff had to say about Sewell’s big catch.

Quotes via Jeremy Reisman:

Dan Campbell

“That was part of a package we were going to have that we could use in the red zone, if needed. It felt like that was the right time to bring it out. We had good practice reps with it. We used him earlier in that fast motion. And so we felt really good about it being there, because when you see him coming, you’re not going to think he’s going to the flat. He’s going to block you one more time like he did before.”

“We know what kind of athlete he is. He’s a phenomenal athlete. Who knows what kind of tackle he’s going to be? I think a pretty dang good one. He already is, but he could be a Hall of Fame tight end, in my opinion too, if he wanted to lose a little bit of weight.”

Jared Goff

“We do it in practice quite a bit, but it doesn’t often get called. I think that was kinda the perfect scenario for it.”

“We’ve won every game that they’ve (offensive linemen) caught balls on Fridays, because we didn’t do it the Thursday game. We didn’t have time. Yeah, we joked about that, but yeah, we’ll continue to do that. Penei’s got pretty good hands.”

In case you missed it, here is the big catch by Sewell.

As we said… ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!
