Thoughts after 3 quarters, Lions, Seahawks

- Safety Louis Delmas has hurt his knee again. While the Lions defense had played much better since Delmas' return, Ricardo Silva did made did make two nice plays in the third quarter.
On a quick read with the Lions in an all-out blitz, Silva made a nice open field tackle on Seattle running back Robert Turbin. If Silva hadn't made that play, Turpin would have been off on a long gain, possibly a TD,. Also, Silva made a tremendous ball-hawking move to pick off a pass by Seattle QB Russell Wilson.
- Seattle safety Earl Thomas is a great player, but Lions' quarterback Matthew Stafford made an interception easy for him when he tried to fit the ball into double coverage. Tight end Tony Scheffler wasn't remotely open on the play.
- Stafford isn't known for his mobility or athleticism, but it is there, although he rarely uses it. He used it in the third quarter, though, on a scramble for a first down, and by gunning a throw on the run sidearm to Titus Young for a first down. It was a terrific catch by Young. Both Young and Ryan Broyles have had a signicant impact on this game.
