I don’t know how many times it must be stated–you absolutely need DL pressure to win games. I don’t care how good your secondary is–if you aren’t pressuring the QB, you almost cannot win.
Right now, Lions are 5th worst in the league in total sacks. Four teams are worse, and those four teams have TWO COMBINED WINS. It is absolutely absurd, yet the team rushes 5 or more less than every other team in the league.
