The Detroit Lions will have a tall task this weekend in their efforts to try and win their first game of the 2021 NFL season.
For Detroit's defense, limiting Jackson and Baltimore's rushing attack will be imperative.
Against Green Bay, the most damage against Detroit was done through the air, and Aaron Glenn's defense will be looking to continue their efforts against the run, while attempting to steadily improve their pass defense.
"This guy is a rare breed," head coach Dan Campbell said earlier this week. "The fact he has the explosiveness and the speed that he has, and certainly being able to throw the ball. Because the minute you start trying to take all that stuff away -- and you have to have a jump on it, you have to have a step where you need to be to get to your gap -- that's when they go right behind you."
