Buchanon Talks About the Strip

Phillip Buchanon said it's a move he's been practicing since his Pop Warner days with the Riverdale (Fla.) Wildcats. And it was one of the few highlights for the Lions in Sunday's loss.

Buchanon chased down Adrian Peterson in the open field on a would-be, 61-yard touchdown run and punched the ball loose with a textbook practice-drill move. Defensive end Jason Hunter then covered the fumble -- five of Peterson's 11 career fumbles have come against the Lions -- in the end zone for a touchback.

"The first thing I was thinking was, 'Chase, tackle, strip,' " Buchanon said.
