|Following their win against the Redskins, the Lions take their turn in the examination room.|
Why has receiver Nate Burleson been careless with the ball? For the second time this season, Burleson lost a fumble at the end of a reception. Sunday, it came when Redskins cornerback Phillip Buchanon poked the ball free after a 25-yard catch-and-run. Burleson lost five fumbles in his first seven NFL seasons, but now has lost two in five games this season. He has always been an excellent open-field runner, but Burleson must be more mindful of ball security.
