The Detroit Lions were in Indiana this week for joint practices with the Indianapolis Colts and though the Lions got off to a rough start on Tuesday, they reportedly held their own and more from that point on.
In fact, Lions head coach Dan Campbell was encouraged by what he saw from his team.
“I think you want to know you don’t look out of place and I didn’t feel that way,” Campbell said. “I didn’t feel that way. And I think ultimately that’s what you want to know is like, ‘Man, do — is this something where we feel like we’re outmatched?' And I didn’t feel that way.”
Campbell specifically praised the Lions' offensive line for their work against the Colts.
“It was good to see those guys go eat in the middle,” Campbell said. “I thought some of our combination blocks in the middle there, in the run game, but the pass protection as well, was our play-pass stuff was as good as I’ve seen in a while, which is encouraging. So that fired me up. They got our tempo going when the big boys came over. So that was good to see.”
On Saturday afternoon, the Detroit Lions and Indianapolis Colts will take the field against each other in their second preseason game of the year.
