Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia talks consistency following win over Jaguars

The Detroit Lions were able to get back on track yesterday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, winning in decisive fashion.

Head coach Matt Patricia met virtually with media members Monday afternoon to recap his team’s performance, and he gave credit to his defensive in the way they shut down Jacksonville’s attack.

“I think those guys played hard on defense,” Patricia said. “I think they tried to step up to a challenge that we knew was going to be difficult against Jacksonville’s run game. I thought they executed well in those situations.”

When asked if he believes his team can carry the positive momentum from week to week following their win, Patricia talked of the importance of staying consistent, and the effect that the bye week had.

“We do want to put an emphasis on building from one week to the next,” he explained, “but we do understand that the opponents are different and everything they do may not transcend from one week to the next.”

“You want to stay consistent and even all the way through, but certainly you want to take what we were able to do yesterday and build on that,” he later continued. “I think it’s good for everybody to have some confidence in what we were doing, and honestly see what I call two weeks of work show up in the game.”

The Lions are now preparing for their next opponent in the Atlanta Falcons, who are a mere 1-5 on the season, mirroring the record of Jacksonville.
