Danny O'Brien
QuarterbackQB
Serviceable in first start

October 19, 2019
O'Brien completed 16 of 25 passes for 171 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Lions' 27-19 loss to the Roughriders on Friday. He also rushed three times for 32 yards and committed two fumbles, losing one.
ANALYSIS
O'Brien was playing his first game as the starting quarterback following Mike Reilly's season-ending wrist injury, and the veteran acquitted himself fairly well overall. O'Brien connected with Bryan Burnham for a 30-yard touchdown with 1:42 remaining to help bring the Lions to within one possession of the Roughriders, but the ensuing onside kick was ultimately recovered by Saskatchewan. O'Brien connected with six different pass catchers on the night; however, he was constrained by a cautious game plan that limited his downfield opportunities and was also pulled from the game for a time in the third quarter in favor of Grant Kraemer, returning shortly thereafter when the latter suffered a lower-body injury. O'Brien will look to close out the regular season on a strong note versus the Stampeders in Week 21 following a Week 20 bye.
