Posted October 02, 2018 07:53:37When the Lions took on the Chiefs in a preseason game, it was one of the most anticipated games in franchise history.
Now, after winning a big one, they will head back to Cambodia to play the Chiefs at the National Stadium in Phnom Penh on Saturday.
Here’s everything you need to know:The Lions and Chiefs were scheduled to meet for a preseason showdown last week in Las Vegas.
The Lions had to travel to a new venue in hopes of getting a game.
But when they did not get a game, the Lions were forced to take their home opener to Lajpat Nhan in Cambodia.
It was a big deal, and Lions coach Jim Caldwell called it “a huge step forward.”
The Lions are on a roll.
They were 4-0 in the preseason.
Caldwell called the win a huge step in their direction.
“It’s huge,” Caldwell said.
“I think we were hoping to play at the same venue as the Chiefs, which we haven’t done, so it’s a huge accomplishment.”
The Chiefs, meanwhile, were 1-4 before getting their first preseason game last week against the Jaguars in Phoenix.
They won that game by a score of 17-10.
The Chiefs also won by a margin of 16-10 in a game they were supposed to play in Las, but the team was forced to pull out with an injury to a key offensive lineman.
The Jaguars won, 18-13.
“I think it was an excellent performance, especially because we’ve had a lot of injuries this preseason,” Lions quarterback Ryan Tannehill said.
“We didn’t do a lot offensively, so our offensive line did a lot better than our defense did, which was the other big thing.
We’ll continue to work on that and see how we can get better.”
The first half of the game was dominated by the Lions’ defensive linemen.
But the Lions came out in the second half and put their stamp on the contest.
They forced eight turnovers and forced two fumbles on just 11 pass plays.
They outgained the Chiefs’ defensive line 28-17.
The Lions’ defense was so good, the Chiefs weren’t able to get any momentum on the scoreboard in the first half.
The last Chiefs drive of the half came with just over eight minutes remaining.
The first drive, the ball dropped out of the end zone after linebacker Tamba Hali hit Chiefs quarterback Carson Palmer with a sack.
On the next drive, they were able to take advantage of some sloppy defensive play by the defense.
The next drive ended up with the Chiefs gaining 28 yards on their first three plays.
After the Lions made a few more big plays down the stretch, they won the game.
The defense was great, and they dominated the game as a whole.
They got the first two points, but they couldn’t get any more.
The defense had the biggest impact on the game in the third quarter, when they allowed the Chiefs to take a 17-yard field goal.
The ball went out of bounds on the return.
The play was ruled an incomplete pass.
That allowed the Lions to get the first down, but it didn’t stop the Chiefs from scoring the go-ahead touchdown.
The Chiefs took the ball and ran with it in the endzone, but instead of scoring, Palmer threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver Brandon Tate.
It’s the third time in the last four games the Chiefs have scored on a punt return and on a touchdown drive.
They had an additional two touchdowns on those plays.
The second-year defensive lineman is now 6-5 as a Lion.
He has played every snap this season.
