Thank you! Jeremy Ross' heads-up play leads to big return

Never give up on a play. That's the old NFL adage. Just ask Lions punt returner Jeremy Ross. In what looked like it would end up being an awesome special teams play by the Cardinals, Ross stole Arizona's thunder by stealing the ball on this return. Somewhere, Don Beebe is smiling.

Watch Lions WR Jeremy Ross hurdle a Falcons defender

The Lions may not have had many banner plays as they fell behing big early against Atlanta, but here is one for the highlight reel:

Lions Notes: Durham in thick of Lions' receiver competition

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Injuries and lack of quality depth left Kris Durham as the Detroit Lions' No. 2 receiver at times last season. Now he's in a competition simply for a job. With Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate and Jeremy Ross (return specialist) locked into three slots, the Lions probably have three other openings for receivers on their 53-man roster. Although undrafted rookie Andrew...

Jeremy Ross could add more duties with Lions' offense

Former teammate Nate Burleson identified Jeremy Ross as the Detroit Lions' "X-factor." On a team with such offensive stars as Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush, there's still the need for an under-the-radar player such as Ross to make an impact. Ross came out of nowhere last year to take on that role as the Lions' return specialist after getting released early in the season by division...

It’s Not Time Panic, Detroit

Detroit Lions’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday was disappointing. In a game that a blizzard would force into being decided on the ground, the Lions’ being without their star running back was difficult. And the Lions’ rush defense—which has been tremendous this season—getting run over in the last quarter was demoralizing. But it’s not time to panic. Here’s...

There was no guessing that Week 14 would be the best week of football of 2013 (so far). The schedule slate was solid: Detroit at Philly, Seattle and San Fran, Indy at Cincy, etc. The weather was expected to be bad, especially in the East. And Week 14 is the unofficial start of many teams’ final push towards a playoff birth. But there was nothing spectacular or unusual to give...
