Detroit Lions graded B+ from CBS Sports for Week 6 win


The Detroit Lions made all the plays they needed to at the end of the game against the Los Angeles Rams, leading to the team's 31-28 victory.

All day long, Golden Tate played a leading role, and according to John Breech of CBS Sports, it was this which made the difference in the end for Jim Bob Cooter and the Lions. Breech gave the Lions a B+ for their Sunday efforts as a whole in his grades segment from Week 6.

Here's Breech on why the Lions deserve that grade:

"Lions offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter promised to get Golden Tate involved in Detroit's, and let's just say he delivered. Tate had the biggest game of his career (165 receiving yards), and the Lions needed every single yard he gave them. Tate came up huge on Detroit's final two scoring drives of the game, totaling four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown tied the game at 28, and then one drive later, Tate set up Matt Prater's game-winning field goal with a 12-yard catch that took Detroit down to the Rams' 17-yard line."

There's no doubting that Tate was huge for Detroit all day long, and the best part? He was finally having fun and enjoying himself during the game.

That could signal the return of one of the most important cogs in the Lions' offensive effort.
