Q&A…Seahawks week 1 matchup vs. Carolina Panthers

B.C. Lions Vs. Montreal Alouettes: What went wrong?

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Alouettes. Bryan asks what went wrong? The Lions’ defense is one of the league’s stingiest, particularly in the secondary, and although the unit forced a boatload of turnovers, the yards just continued to rack up against them.
