Moore After The Game: Herman Moore Breaks Down Lions' Win vs. Commanders
The Detroit Lions came out fast against the Washington Commanders in Week 2 with a decisive victory. Lions legend wide receiver Herman Moore gives his thoughts and breaks down critical observations from the game.
Amon-Ra St. Brown Gets The Game Ball
Second-year wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown was a menace for the Commanders’ defense and a blessing for quarterback Jared Goff on Sunday, having nine receptions for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Also, St. Brown ran the football for two carries for 68 yards.
Herman Moore on Amon-Ra St. Brown (0.33)
“This guy (St. Brown) has been on fire; he has continued to put everyone on notice and alert that he is saying that no matter what you think of him, he feels he is a number one wide receiver.”
St. Brown has put the offense on his back and forced teams to respect the passing game for Detroit.
Jared Goff Played Well
Lions QB Jared Goff played well on Sunday, passing for over 250 yards and four touchdowns. The offense is humming because of the solid play by Goff, and Goff did not force the wrong pass and took what the defense gave him.

“Jared Goff probably played his most polished game as a Detroit Lion; also, I saw him take finally command of this offensive unit that has been missing, and you want to see that type of leadership in terms of your quarterback.”
Aidan Hutchinson Is The Real Deal
In Week One for the Detroit Lions, Lions edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson did not get a single sack in the game. Fans commented on his lack of play and wanted to see him perform better against the Commanders, and he sure did. Hutchinson had three sacks in the first half of the game and was a terror for QB Carson Wentz all game long. Hutchinson had high expectations of him, and he delivered.
Wide receiver D.J. Chark and tight end T.J. Hockenson did not perform well on Sunday. With multiple drops and miscues, these two must resolve these issues.

“D.J. Chark and T.J. Hockenson, it seems those guys are disappearing a little bit,” Moore continues. “T.J. Hockenson has to be more of a focus; he has to be more involved.”
The Detroit Lions get a win with a high-scoring offense, a defensive line that placed pressure, and great special teams play. The Lions are improving under head coach Dan Campbell, which showed in this game. Now on to Minnesota to face the Vikings in Week 3.
