(WNFL) - Former Wisconsin linebacker DeAndre Levy (lev'-ee) is tied for the N-F-L lead in interceptions for the Detroit Lions, whom the Packers play tomorrow. The fifth-year pro from Milwaukee Vincent High School has five picks for the Lions' defense. He leads Detroit in solo tackles with 66, and he's tied for the team lead in pass break-ups with 11. Packers' guard Josh Sitton said Levy is a good athlete who has gotten better the past couple of years. Green Bay quarterbacks' coach Ben McAdoo says Levy has steadily improved, is quick to react, and is having his best year with Detroit. He'll apparently stay with the Lions for a while, after he signed a three-year contract extension in the spring worth nine-and-three-quarter million dollars. Levy is one reason Detroit has improved its run defense to the fourth-best in the N-F-L, while its pass defense languishes at 28th against the pass. The Lions have not allowed a rushing touchdown in seven-and-a-half games. They co-lead the N-F-C North at 6-and-5, and will host a Packer team tomorrow that's 5-5-and-1 after their tie last Sunday against Minnesota.
