Tricks, but no treat: Lions special teams gambles fall short

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) Dan Campbell emptied the playbook in an effort to get his first NFL victory as a head coach, only to see it fall short.

The Detroit coach saw his Lions successfully execute an onside kick and two fake punts Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. The Lions jumped out to a 10-0 first quarter lead, but were unable to sustain the momentum as the Rams rallied for a 28-19 victory.

"It's frustrating," Campbell said. "We felt like we could get an advantage there and see if we get some possessions back. They helped, but it wasn't enough. We knew we needed to play this game a certain way, and we did that. We needed them to play a little bit more of our game, and a track meet was going to be hard for us.
