J. Best has 5 t.d.s in 2 games. Not that I’ve noticed or anything…
“The Detroit Lions have two rookie first-round draft picks — second overall pick Ndamukong Suh, a defensive end, and running back Jahvid Best BEAST, who was the 30th overall pick — who already are paying dividends:
“• Best’s 154 receiving yards against the Eagles on Sunday is the most by an NFL rookie since Herschel Walker of Dallas had 170 on Dec. 14, 1986.
“• Best’s 154 receiving yards is the second most by a Lions rookie in team history. Rookie Dave Middleton had eight catches for 168 yards against the Bears on Nov. 20, 1955.
“• Since sack totals became an official statistic in 1983, Suh is the first Lions rookie to record a sack in each of his first two games.
“• Best is the first Lions player to have nine receptions in a game since wide receiver Roy Williams did it against Philadelphia on Sept. 26, 2004. Best also is the first Lions player to score three touchdowns in a game since Williams did it on Nov. 13, 2005.”
75 yard screen pass for your viewing pleasure. Or displeasure if you have to defend him… J.D.
