Lions offense tops the league in this efficiency stat

USA Today

One of the takeaways from Detroit’s Week 13 win in New Orleans was how often the Lions offense went three-and-out. Ben Johnson’s unit went three-and-out four times against the Saints, an abnormally high rate of offensive failure.

It stood out in part because the Lions don’t typically go three-and-out very often. In fact, the Lions are the NFL’s best offense in 2023 at avoiding the dreaded three-and-out. Detroit punts after three plays just 24 percent of the time.

It’s an impressive display of efficiency from Jared Goff and the Lions offense.
