That is what the Detroit Lions were ranked on third down conversions coming in to todays game. The best team in the league is PIT at 53%.
Today the lions were at 75%.
We have one of the most talented secondaries in the league. The most dangerous WR (arguably) in the league was nullified or at least severely limited today. We have at least an average LB core with Wagner growing weekly. We are NOT "under talented"
This is a scheme problem. Something is very wrong here. We have too much talent to have these statistical anomalies seem to happen to us with such frequency. Pete is a defensive coach and he needs to figure this crap out yesterday.

Unacceptable. We are too damn good of a defense on 1 and 2 to falter this much on 3. It's more than a few bad plays or missed tackles, we need to find and fix the root of this problem
