Detroit Lions vs. New York Jets: Who gets the game ball? After a loss like the Detroit Lions’ disaster on Monday night Da’Shawn Hand Jersey , no one really wants to talk about the positives. We’re all mad, we’re all confused and we want heads to roll after the Lions came out and looked completely unprepared for the onslaught that awaited at the hands of the (lowly?) New York Jets.And if you feel that way, you are free to click on that X at the top right corner right now. I won’t take it personally. Alright, if you’re sticking around, it’s time to hand out our weekly Game Ball. Each week I will post five candidates of the best performance from the Lions roster, and your vote will decide the Game Ball winner. First place will get three “points,” second place will get two, third place gets one. We’ll keep a running track the entire season to see who has been the most valuable player on a week-to-week basis. Here are this week’s candidates:Kenny GolladayStats: 7 catches Tracy Walker Jersey , 114 yards, forced fumbleGolladay set career highs in both receptions and receiving yards on Monday night, as he seemed like the only Lions player on offense capable of exploiting his mismatch against the Jets’ top-heavy secondary. Prior to this game, Golladay had maxed out at four catches and 80 receiving yards in a game. This had all the makings of a breakout performance, and his forced fumble was a high-effort play that kept the Lions in the game longer than they should’ve been in it. Devon KennardStats: 6 tackles (4 solo), 1 sackWhen lined up opposite Ezekiel Ansah, Devon Kennard looked like he could actually be the pass-rushing threat the Lions so desperately need. He also showed impressive ability to set the edge in the run game. He was less effective when Ansah’s injury forced a shakeup along the defensive front, but there’s still some hope left for Kennard Kerryon Johnson Jersey , who many were underwhelmed by his 9.5 career sacks entering the year.Kerryon JohnsonStats: 5 carries, 17 yards; 3 catches, 20 yardsJohnson only saw 16 total snaps, but he got the ball on half of those and turned it into 37 yards. That obviously shouldn’t be Player of the Game worthy in any respectable team performance, but we’re grasping at straws here.If we’re being honest, though, Johnson looked better than any other back in the game. He was responsible for the longest run of the day (9 yards) and he proved he can be a dual threat as a receiver. Expect him to get more touches as the season gets on, and hopefully we’ll see some serious stats from him soon.Quandre DiggsStats: 4 tackles Frank Ragnow Jersey , 1 INT, 1 TDOn a day in which the secondary was repeatedly burned, Diggs managed to stand out as the man worth every penny of his $20 million extension. And it was more than just his game-opening pick six. Diggs has clearly adopted a role as a key player on this defense, whether it’s as a nickel cornerback or an occasional strong safety. He’s centerpiece of the Lions defense now, and he’s one of the few players that actually played like it on Monday.Golden TateStats: 7 catches, 79 yards, 1 TDTate had a bad drop or two, but he was also responsible for the Lions’ only offensive touchdown Marvin Jones Jersey , and that counts for something on a horrible, horrible night. Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount is on pace for the least productive season since leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the 2012 year.Blount had gained just 151 yards on 41 carries with two touchdowns in his 13 games with the Buccaneers that season. He’s on pace to finish with less than 300 yards and a career-worst 2.3 yards per attempt this season in Detroit.According to Dave Birkett of the , Blount isn’t quite sure what to make of his year so far with the Lions, but he hopes it can improve over the final six games of the season.鈥淚t鈥檚 not really as productive as I would have wanted it to be, but at the end of the day you鈥檝e got to strap it up and go play football,鈥?Blount said. 鈥淵ou can鈥檛 live in the past, so I鈥檓 just moving on from this game.鈥滲lount has been a backup option to rookie starter Kerryon Johnson. But with Johnson set to miss time due to a knee injury, Blount is set to see an increased role. He gained 766 yards with two touchdowns in 16 games with the Philadelphia Eagles last season Darius Slay Jersey , averaging 4.3 yards per carry. While Detroit has been a running back wasteland for much of the recent past, Johnson has managed to find success. He’s gained 641 yards and averaged 5.4 yards per carry in 10 games for the Lions this season.Blount is a different type of runner than Johnson and he hasn’t been able to match that production in the chances he’s received. It’s a question Blount says he doesn’t have the answer to.鈥淚 couldn鈥檛 tell you,鈥?Blount said.. 鈥淟uck of the draw. You just don鈥檛 know. Like I said, that鈥檒l be something that Matty P (Patricia) would be able to answer more than I would.鈥滲lount hasn’t had even a double-digit rushing game in the last four weeks. He’s carried 21 times for 18 yards over that span.
