John Crist: The Lions played you guys really tough in the first half. This is a team that was 0-16 last year, maybe the worst team in history. I know they've got a new coach and a lot of turnover, but did they even look like the same team today? Because they seemed like they gave you some pretty good effort for the first 30 minutes.
Danieal Manning: I think they played well the whole game. It's just we made some adjustments, and I don't think they came back with adjustments. I don't know if they had a different game plan besides the one they had the first half. We changed up a little bit. We moved Peanut (Charles Tillman) around and moved the secondary, and we just gave the quarterback some different disguises.
