Last week, head coach Dan Campbell pinned the 35-17 Monday Night Football loss to the Green Bay Packers on his team's offense.
After a productive first half at Lambeau Field, the Packers' defense made the necessary adjustments to hold Detroit's offense scoreless for the final two halves of play.
“We’ve got to do a better job of staying on the field on third down and eating up this clock a little bit and resting our defense, number one," offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn told reporters this week. "But when you’re down a couple of scores late, it’s just hard to run the ball, but it is what it is.”
Lynn noted that he welcomes the pressure put on the offense by the head coach, because the standards of the entire team should be set at a very high standard.
