Saints vs. Lions Final Score: Video of Rafael Bush's Questionable Pass Interference Call on Reggie Bush

Was the crucial pass interference call on Rafael Bush late in the game warranted? With just over two minutes remaining in the game and a 6-point lead, the Saints had the Lions on the ropes with 4th and 5. Instead of kicking the field goal and taking the points, the Lions decided to go for the touchdown and the win. Rafael Bush would end up being called for a questionable pass interference penalty on a short pass to Reggie Bush. Instead of the Saints offense taking over on downs and most likely winning the game, the penalty gave the Lions a fresh set of downs and eventually scored the...

Ask Kyle: A look at Reggie Bush's struggles to pick up positive yardage for Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions had a good thing going last year with Joique Bell and Reggie Bush. Bell was the grinder, Bush was the home-run threat and both could catch the ball. A year later, though, the Lions' rushing attack has tumbled from 17th all the way to 29th. No one is doing much, but Bush seems to be struggling more than the others.

Lions notes: Week 7 captains, Matt Prater, more

Lions notes looks at this week's captains, Matt Prater and much more. The Detroit Lions' captains for Sunday are Reggie Bush (offense), James Ihedigbo (defense) and Isa Abdul-Quddus (special teams). Bush and Abdul-Quddus both spent time with the New Orleans Saints, so I'm sure it's no coincidence that they were chosen as captains this week. In order to prepare himself for his return to Ford Field, Matt Prater had plans to go there on Thursday to "get a feel" for things like the turf, the clocks and the stadium in general. With the Lions down to one healthy tight end (Brandon Pettigrew),...
