The Detroit Lions get their sixth win of the season and strengthen their claim to the playoffs. For Amon-Ra St. Brown’s team, unlike the Raiders, things are going well for another German.

The Detroit Lions have recovered well from their second loss of the season thanks to another strong performance from Amon-Ra St. Brown won 26:14 against the Las Vegas Raiders.

While the Raiders around Jakob Johnson from Stuttgart are heading for the next disappointing NFL season and have lost five of eight games, the Lions are fully on course for the playoffs after their sixth win.

St. Brown went without a touchdown, but collected more than 100 yards on passes for the eleventh time in his career – no pass receiver in Lions history has ever had that many after less than three full seasons. This season alone, St. Brown had five games with a triple-digit score.

“We made a few stupid mistakes on offense, but we stayed calm and kept playing. That was good,” said Lions quarterback Jared Goff. “We played really well today. The lead on the scoreboard should be bigger.” Only three turnovers marred the good performance of the Lions, who lost 6:38 to the Baltimore Ravens last week.

The Raiders, on the other hand, are not getting going offensively at all, even with new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Star pass receiver Davante Adams had just one catch for seven yards. The six more throws in his direction had no effect.
