Erik Turner and Nate Geary are back in the film room to break down Bills QB Josh Allen’s play against the Carolina Panthers in their second game of the 2019 preseason.The Detroit Lions have reached the halfway mark of the 2019 preseason. We’ll have to wait another week to see their most important player take the field, however.
The Lions continue to be cautious with Matthew Stafford and kept their starting quarterback out of a 30-23 preseason loss to the Houston Texans on Saturday. Josh Johnson, a week after signing with the team, started for the Lions and finished 9 of 18 for 85 yards and an interception.With Stafford’s presumed backup Tom Savage sidelined by a concussion, Johnson is in contention to be the Lions’ reserve signal-caller this season.
He played the entire first half and into the third quarter, but was unable to lead Detroit into the end zone. David Fales took over under center in the third frame and led a 94-yard drive culminating in a five-yard touchdown toss to running back Zach Zenner. Fales rebounded from a nightmarish game a week ago, finishing 12 of 19 for 226 yards and one touchdown throw.
