As good as Ameer Abdullah looked in the first preseason game, Friday night has been poor. There was a fumble on a handoff exchange with Matthew Stafford (Stafford was credited with it in the scorebook, but it looked like it was Abdullah's issue, frankly) and then he muffed/fumbled a kick return. Neither were forced by a Giants defender. Fumbling has been an issue for him at points in his career, so to see him have these issues is not a great sign -- especially since he's potentially behind LeGarrette Blount, Kerryon Johnson and Theo Riddick on the depth chart by the time Week 1 rolls around.

Kerryon Johnson might have had the play of the night for the Lions -- except it got called back. He had a 57-yard run that saw his go halfway across the field called back on a holding call -- but it was a sign of what the second-round pick of Auburn is capable of. He's shown flashes of big-play ability throughout camp thus far, but nothing quite like what he did there against Oakland's backup defenders.

Watch Kerryon Johnson make moves on a gashing run that almost was

It was a nullified play in a meaningless game, but Detroit's new running back was able to flash his skills nonetheless.

Detroit should feel at least a little better about its run game than it did last season. While it was largely against backups and fringe roster players, rookie Kerryon Johnson showed good speed, fast instincts and the ability to fight for extra yardage. LeGarrette Blount did what was expected. And Ameer Abdullah looked sharp – the best he’s looked since Week 4 of last season – throughout the first half. Abdullah was one of the bigger surprises Friday night and the combination of the three along with pass-catching Theo Riddick gave the Lions a more intriguing running back group than it has had in a while. The last time Detroit looked this good running the ball in the preseason opener was 2015, when Abdullah was a rookie garnering some of the hype Johnson is now receiving. The starters also played without right guard T.J. Lang and quarterback Matthew Stafford.
