The Detroit Lions got three second-quarter touchdowns to take a 21-0 halftime lead over the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Lions have been dominant on both sides of the ball, and blew the game open in the last 15 minutes.
Detroit broke through on the scoreboard as they drove 91 yards to open the second quarter. Matthew Stafford hit Calvin Johnson for 26 yards to set Detroit up in Jaguars territory. Mikel Leshoure capped the drive off with a 7-yard touchdown run.
The Lions would build their lead on the next possession, as they were given good field position at their own 47. Stafford hit Johnson on another big play, this time a 38-yard strike, to put Detroit in position at the one-yard line. Johnson already has more than 100 yards on the day, and Stafford is past 200. Leshoure would get his second score of the next play.
Leshoure would get the hat trick, scoring his third touchdown right before the end of the first half. He finished a 10-play, 81-yard drive.
Jacksonville's offense has been stifled by the Lions. The Jaguars have just three first downs through two quarters, two of which came in a throwaway drive at the end of the second. They will try to get something going as they receive the ball to open the second half.
