Penalties creeping up as issue for Detroit Lions

GLENDALE, Ariz. — When the Detroit Lions hired Jim Caldwell in January, part of what they sought in a coach was a highly disciplined individual who ran a highly disciplined football team.

Yet 10 games into Caldwell’s first season as the Lions’ coach, his team has racked up 73 penalties — including eight or more in each of the past four games. That includes the nine for 80 yards Detroit rung up Sunday in a 14-6 loss to Arizona where the Lions actually committed 12 fouls, but had three wiped off the books.
