Lions Running Back Jahvid Best Will Start Against Cowboys

Tomorrow afternoon’s game in Arlington, Texas is going to be a battle of two of the NFL’s worst rushing attacks. The Detroit Lions rank third to last in rushing offense, while the Cowboys come in with the second worst attack. However, the Lions will receive a much needed boost when running back Jahvid Best takes the field for the start.

On the season, Best has made his impact felt when he was not fighting through injuries. His 40 receiving yards per game comes in at second in the league among running backs — San Francisco 49ers tailback Frank Gore is ranked first. Best has received high praise for his play, most notably from his head coach.

“He’s not even close to his potential,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said.

The Dallas defense needs to strap up and make it a rough outing for Best in order for Dallas to earn the win on Sunday. If we learned anything from the new coaches early on, it is that they want to install a new, physical mentality in the team. Playing dominating defense and controlling the trenches would be a brilliant way to start.
