It was not a great night for the Detroit Lions on Saturday night as they lost 26-20 to the Pittsburgh Steelers in their second preseason game of the year.
One player who certainly could have been better is second-year CB Jeff Okudah.
During the first half, Okudah got beat badly by Steelers WR Diontae Johnson for a long gain.

Okudah was also made to look silly by Steelers rookie Najee Harris, who juked the Lions’ CB to the ground…from 1o yards away!

According to most accounts, Okudah has looked much better in training camp this year than he did during his rookie season but plays like these are what he needs to eliminate if he ever wants to be elite.
