OK, this other games sucks, so get all your positive Lion talk in now, since not being able to hold a 2nd string QB to under 40 has probably killed any chance of seeing the Lions win their second playoff game in most of our lifetimes. At least I'm not still in New Orleans for it.
OT: Lions-Saints Playoff Game Open Thread
live stream for the game?
Hopefully I get to sing, " Forward down the field" multiple times in front of my Chicago relatives tonight. Regardless of what happens its been a great season, having said that GO LIONS!!!!
Fight songs in professional sports are very akward. It doesn't really help that Lions have an extremely cheesy one.
Having said that, JUST WIN BABY!
but damn, you have some trust in your team. I know, I know Nawlins' and home-field advantage but hell you guys are talented enough to keep up with them.
P.S. Need Lions to win or lose by less than 11 to win my league pick'em :)
I do think NO wins, but I think it'll be closer than many expect. If Detroit can limit the dumb penalties, but still keep their intensity, the game will be close at the 2 minute warning. Whetther that's the 1st half or the 2nd depends on the secondary (I'm looking at you Eric Wright).
Need a huge game from Suh and the Dline to keep Brees uncomfortable. Lions 35 - Saints 27
Go down swingin'
Lions were missing a lot of key contributors in the first meeting. I think this game is going to be very close, and much more competitive.
The lions have this. If they didnt play stupid the first time we would have won
First playoff appearance since 1999. I'm going to enjoy every moment of this, no matter the score. GO LIONS!!!
Just for the lack of black leather.
WE GON' SHOCK THE WORLD!!!
Adrian Arrington active for NO
All that passing spread crap will never work in the NFL.
Just heard that...go lions. But if the saints do score, let it be Arrington.
You know this game means a lot for the city when my mom calls to ask if I'm watching.
I'M FACKING PUMPED!
Adrian Arrington gets the start!
Looks like Arrington's gonna get some shine tonight. I hope he has a good game, but not too good of one.
Let's just do that all night.
Keeping that in the mix will keep the defense in check.
MEGATRON! Loving the execution.
Come on. Can't make such stupid mistakes.
First stupid penalty of the game... luckily it doesn't hurt us. Titus Young big on this first drive
Titus Young has swag.
Love what I've seen this year. He's looked like a rookie a couple of times but he definitely has the skills
Great to have an extra option to throw to.
Will Heller! Third TE for the TD!
This first drive is going well!
Titus Young getting a drive to shine here!
...and Heller gets the TD! Great start!
MARCHING DOWN THE FIELD WITH A TEAM THAT WILL BOT YIELD!!!!
That was a huge drive on the road, and in tough environment. We look confident, and that dome is much more quiet now.
Stafford looked like a seasoned vet on that drive.
Great first drive!!! Go Lions!
I am so fricking impressed with Titus Young. He's got major game
would be really nice right now.
I'll take a fumble from Colston
Funny you should mention that...
Fumble it is!
Ugh. I like Darren Sproles. Don't like him running all over us, though.
This all just looks too easy for both teams
There we go baby!
Let's go up two scores!
Stretching the lead to 2 scores would be huge this early.
