JEREMY ROSS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Punt return power rankings: Where does Jeremy Ross rank among the NFL’s best?

The last time we talked about the best kick returners in the NFL it was back in October, when Devin Hester of the Atlanta Falcons took home the number one spot in our power rankings. This time I mixed it up by separating punt returners from the herd and ranking the top ten based exclusively on punts. To determine the rankings I used a combination of traditional stats plus an extra...

Detroit Lions Jeremy Ross and the Best Run of the Day That Didn't Count

When this happened it looked like Lions wide receiver Jeremy Ross had made the heads-up play of the season recovering this tip and returning to mid-field, but those pesky rules had to get in the way. Eventually it was ruled that the Cardinals player had possessed the ball inside the one-yard line when he tipped the ball back in to the playing field. Since it was a punt and no one...

Thank you! Jeremy Ross' heads-up play leads to big return

Never give up on a play. That's the old NFL adage. Just ask Lions punt returner Jeremy Ross. In what looked like it would end up being an awesome special teams play by the Cardinals, Ross stole Arizona's thunder by stealing the ball on this return. Somewhere, Don Beebe is smiling.

The Detroit Lions are in the middle of a one-score game against the Arizona Cardinals. In the fourth quarter, it appeared the Cardinals were going to pin the Lions deep in their own territory. But while the Cardinals were downing the punt, the Lions’ Jeremy Ross wisely picked up the football and returned it 49 Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Watch Lions WR Jeremy Ross hurdle a Falcons defender

Usually when a ball carrier tries to get past a defender in the open field, the options are simple. Go around the would-be tackler, or go through him. Lions wide receiver Jeremy Ross reminded us all on Sunday there's a third option: Go OVER a defender. The Lions may not have had many banner plays as they fell behing big early against Atlanta, but here is one for the highlight reel:

Watch: Lions’ Jeremy Ross Leapfrogs Defender, Picks up First Down

Not much has gone right for the Detroit Lions in the first half of their early morning London matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. The Lions trail 21-0 late in the first half, but Jeremy Ross may have just provided the spark this team desperately needed. On third and six, Ross turned what looked to be two yard completion into a Sportscenter Top 10 play by leapfrogging a Falcons defender...

Jeremy Ross could add more duties with Lions' offense

Former teammate Nate Burleson identified Jeremy Ross as the Detroit Lions' "X-factor." On a team with such offensive stars as Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush, there's still the need for an under-the-radar player such as Ross to make an impact. Ross came out of nowhere last year to take on that role as the Lions' return specialist after getting released early in the season by division...

Detroit Lions: Coaching staff update

Teryl Austin (Photo credit: Scott Boehm/AP) Just about two weeks ago, the Detroit Lions were still without a head coach. The fans’ leading candidate just announced that he would be choosing the head coaching gig for the Tennessee Titans instead of (hopefully) leading Matthew Stafford and the rest of the Lions to the promise land. On January 14th the Lions announced that Jim Caldwell...

Lions, Chiefs take punts, kicks for scores

Detroit's Jeremy Ross had a punt and kickoff return for a touchdown, and Kansas City also had one of each, the first time two teams did it on the same day in the NFL since at least 1940, according to STATS. Ross ran a punt back 58 yards and a kickoff 98 yards in the Lions' 34-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in blizzard-like conditions. In Washington, Quintin Demps...

Lions’ Jeremy Ross scores on punt return, does snow angel celebration

Detroit Lions punt returner Jeremy Ross made a massive play for the Lions against the Philadelphia Eagles in the blizzard.  Neither team had been able to break open a big play and Ross returned this punt 58-yards to the end zone.  The fact that Ross didn’t fall down and there weren’t any penalties on this play is simply astounding.  The snow angel celebration by Ross was a...
