Detroit throws 57 passes to 5 runs after they get down big early, almost come back at around halftime but the New Orleans rushing attack (288 Yds, 2 TDs) combined with Armstrong's accuracy (171 Yds, 4 TDs, 1 Int) pulled away from them. NOS defense took 5 picks and had 4 sacks in an eventual 42-27 rout. The sad part was that after throwing 3+ picks in the first half, Detroit almost tied the game up. The defense stepped up today, and the offense was clicking on all cylinders. This was a statement after that close loss to the division rivals Tampa Bay. The boys were apparently fired up today.
The team got nicked up a little bit, but one major injury was to starting RG Anthony Huynh, who left early with a concussion. He will undergo league concussion protocols, they're saying it's minor but the team will take their time with their best lineman. He'll likely be out at least for next week's game.
