Hue Jackson thinks Sunday was DeShone Kizers best game

Nothing like a little failed trade for a veteran quarterback to bring out even more of the beast in DeShone Kizer.

In the rookie QB's first game since Hue Jackson tried to trade for his old Bengals QB AJ McCarron last week, Kizer topped any other performance of his season.

"I thought DeShone played probably the best game he's played,'' said Jackson.

And if he hadn't had to leave the game for awhile in the second half with a rib injury, who knows what may have happened? The score was tied 24-24 when he left late in the third quarter, and he had the offense rolling.

X-rays were negative, and he returned to the game for the final drive with 4:28 left. By then, Lions quarterback Matt Stafford had turned into a TD machine, throwing three straight in the second half to produce the final margin.

"Yeah, every game so far I've felt pretty confident that I was getting better,'' Kizer said. "I was able to play the whole game, wasn't benched, wasn't in a situation in which I was turning the ball over earlier in the game. Got a little rhythm going, so yeah, I think this was my best outing yet."

Before taking a hard shot to the ribs from cornerback Quandre Diggs with six seconds left in the third quarter, Kizer was the quarterback Jackson has been trying to coax out of him. He was passing and running well and putting points on the board.
