A mic’d-up Lions G Jonah Jackson hilariously struggled to count how much Detroit was winning by

The Detroit Lions are one of the NFL’s hottest teams. Dating back to the 2022 season, this formerly moribund franchise has won 12 of its last 15 games. It’s clear the Lions are no longer an NFC North doormat — they are the division’s obvious favorite and resemble a sleeper (dominant?) championship contender.

Go figure. Take former Pro Bowl guard Jonah Jackson, for example.

A new mic’d-up video from Inside the NFL features Jackson and Detroit tackle Taylor Decker trying (emphasis on trying) to count the Lions’ late winning margin over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday. After kicker Riley Patterson nailed a late field goal to make it 42-17, Jackson’s math was just a bit … off:

In fairness to Jackson — who has been with the Lions since 2020 –he’s probably not used to Detroit consistently scoring so much after the start of his career. But the Lions have now scored at least 30 points in that same red-hot 15-game stretch that began in 2022. This is what they do now. They just overwhelm, well, everyone.

No one will fault Jackson for his terrible math as long as he continues doing his job blocking well. But he should probably prepared for more fireworks in the future.
