Allen Park — Happy Thanksgiving, y'all. Welcome to this week's Detroit Lions mailbag.

u25ba Question: Playing winning football requires the coach to manage the clock. In this week's game, as we have seen a number of times, we had the final possession before half and did not utilize our timeouts. I’m interested in what his strategy is. Why would we not use the timeouts? - @DonMcAnellyCPA

u25ba Answer: What's important to remember from the previous week's game is the Lions didn't run out of time, they ran out of downs at the end of the first half.
