Must win for the Lions today against a mediocre opponent. Some other solid early games as well with a big game in the AFC North between the Ravens and Bengals.
OT: NFL open thread: GO LIONS!
I always root for the team who has Michigan alums on it. Lions will win today IMO.
Gonna have to root for Woodson & the Packers on thanksgiving though.
Backus plays for the Lions
Is it a bad thing that I wish he didn't play for the Lions?
He has been a warrior and played through injuries. He may not be the ideal LT because of his build and athleticism. The fact that he has not missed a game since he was drafted speak a lot of his toughness and his coaches think of Backus. He's merely an average LT, but you don't need to win Super Bowl with elite LT anyway.
Packers defense is terrible and Lions secondary is underrated. The Lions have DL who can put pressure on Rodgers. This has the making of an upset on Thanksgiving day.
with the injury and those damn gloves. Just play Shaun Hill.
Solid play there to catch, stay in bounds and get the first. Big play.
what a ugly game, stafford needs to get it together.
Makes this offense pretty bad.
Im in Dominican Republic does anyone have a live feed of the lions game would be much appreciated
Thank you for the link didn't get to tell that earlier....by the way Lancer is that from Lakeshore Lancers from Stevensville? just curious because I went there
The Lions are playing really poorly right now. I have to keep remembering that this team only won 6 all of last year so anything more than 8-8 or 9-7 exceeds expectations. But this still is disappointing.
Get out of the gate as 4-0 world beaters, lose one, win one to stand at 5-1, then go through mediocre 2-6 stretch, finish w/ too little, too late 2 wins, and fail to make the playoffs at 9-7.
BTW, the 1980 Lions were 6-3 and 6-4 after nine & ten games.
Yay scoring! Doesn't help our defense get its wind back though sadly.
It would be great to get something going on the ground in the 2nd half of the season. Hopefully that is a preview.
Oh good the defense does get some more time to drink Gatorade.
You have GOT to be shitting me.
Three turnovers and a KO return for a touchdown in little over a quarter. Wow, just wow.
I'm a Browns season ticket holder. You want to watch suck? We havent scored a freaking touchdown since the Carter administration.
God they are horrible. And yes - decided to skip the game today and watching it on TV. They are just as horrible at home as they are in person.
I guess theyre looking at next years draft already. Damn we suck again. Why do I wait all week for the lions to play only to be dissapointed
things are looking very, very, very bad, in all phases...ehh
My God, do they look bad.
What the hell happened between the Lions with swag from the beginning of the year to this self-destructing group? It can't JUST be stafford hand... This is hard to watch
What a fucking disaster this franchise is.
Michigan slaughters a ranked team on Saturday, Lloyd has a presser afterwards, and the Lions fall on their faces come Sunday. It's 2006 people!
The Lions make me want to vomit. In a bad way.
Da-nana Dada-nana....GO PACK GO
Pretty good start to the 2nd half here.
140 yds rushing, 3 rushing tds, 30 yd td reception. This after being out of the game since the summer.
Steven Schilling getting some playing time for San Diego. Good to see!
And getting some love from the announcers. Too bad he can't do anything about Cutler dicing the SD defense to shards, would be happy about a Bears Loss
I really hate Phillip Rivers right now. I was sure they would beat the Bears today and give the Lions some help in the playoff race. Stupid, stupid me
