Found October 14, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Detroit Lions signed running back Reggie Bush to be a dangerous dual threat out of the backfield but through two quarters against the Cleveland Browns he hadn't done much of anything. At the half Bush had 14 rushing yards on seven carries and wasn't targeted once in the passing game. Part of the reason he wasn't more involved in the offense was because the Browns surprised the Lions with a different defensive look than Detroit expected. "They're a zone team on film and they come out here today and play Cover-1 the whole game" quarterback Matt Stafford said. During halftime offensive coordinator Scott Linehan called for an adjustment to the game plan. And it helped lead to a 31-17 Detroit victory. "We go in and coach Linehan has great adjustments for us" Stafford said. "He says 'Hey they want to play man coverage let's get Reggie Bush on (linebacker Craig Robertson). That's a great matchup for us.' We did it and he made...

Schwartz on Megatron's injury status: 'Too soon to tell'

Because of an ailing right knee, Johnson was limited to 38 of the teams 74 offensive plays or 51.4 percent of the time.

Detroit Lions News – Stafford And Fauria Lead Lions Over Browns

The Detroit Lions went into Cleveland to take on the red hot Browns and left with a 31-17 victory, with the help of the Matthew Stafford to Joseph Fauria connection. Outscoring Cleveland 24-0 in the second half, the Lions were looking at a 17-7 deficit after having gotten out to a quick 7-0 lead in Sunday’s game.

Joseph Fauria Collects 2 TDs vs. Browns

Lions tight end Joseph Fauria had a monster game Sunday against the Browns.Fantasy Spin:All three of Fauria's receptions went for touchdowns. Most weeks those end zone passes would have gone to either Calvin Johnson or Tony Scheffler but with both of them hurting, Fauria was able to have the game of his life. We wouldn't expect Fauria to be nearly as effective once Johnson...

Detroit Lions Tight End Joseph Fauria Just Want to Dance (and score)!

Few people outside of Detroit were aware of who Lions tight end Joseph Fauria was prior to Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. The undrafted rookie out of UCLA had only four catches for 32 yards and a pair of touchdowns--obviously not someone anyone is going to be paying attention to. So how better to get that attention than by breaking out some old school dance...

Joseph Fauria Is Dancing Again

Lions tight end Joseph Fauria has been quite the red zone specialist this season. He has five catches on the year and three of them have been touchdowns. The latest came in the first quarter today against the Browns. Even more than touchdowns, it’s the dancing has gotten Fauria attention. In Week 3, he scored against Washington and pulled a reference to *NSYNC’s “Bye, Bye,...

Fauria a hit with end zone dances

Joseph Fauria's choreographed end zone dances have earned him fans all over the Internet and even in Hollywood. That's not what impresses the Detroit Lions most. They are fondest of how the tall tight end can stretch a defense. The NFL's other 31 front offices might be wondering why he wasn't worth drafting earlier this year. The 6-foot-7 Fauria had three catches...

DeSean Jackson, Joseph Fauria, and Mike Tolbert Audition for Dancing With the Stars After Scoring

Personally I do not see the appeal behind Dancing With the Stars; tried watching it once and I just couldn't see any good reason that the program was on television. A staple of the show seems to be having a current or former NFL personality on the program. Some of them have won, others have done well, and than there is Keyshawn Johnson (I don't watch; I might follow it.....
