The result was expected - Lions struggling on O and playing a hot Pats team at home.

Sad to see a veteran like Raiola do something so stupid and classes. One more reason why I don't like the undersized Center - he deserves to be fined.

Mistakes, penalties, bad drops, etc. Can't do that and expect to beat NE.

Too bad Mosley, Lucas and Raiola had to provide such a Schwartz-like ending

Thinking we're gonna split Chicago and end up 10-6.
Probably a wildcard spot so we rematch against VS Arizona in the NFC Title game, provided we win our FIRST playoff game in 24 YEARS??!!!

"Here's how I see the rest of the schedule unfolding (I didn't think they would beat AZ either);

New England - L

Chicago - W

Tampa Bay - W

Minny - W

Chicago - W

Green Bay - L "

Well, the Lions got by Stanton, but not the Cardinal's #1 rated D...

As long as the Lions go .500 down the stretch (including yesterday's loss), they will be fine.

No touchdowns?

I was looking forward to the final game against GB, but now I think the Lions will lose on Thanksgiving for the 10th straight year.

Thank God the letdown was expected.

Lower your expectations. Then you can enjoy a winning season by the Lions.

I have, and I enjoyed the game. I was actually able to watch it, because of Miami market. That's three. Opening Monday night, London, and Sunday. With Thanksgiving, that will be 4. Tampa Bay on 12/7 could be another.

Should be interesting next week against AZ - they lost Carson Palmer to a knee injury so we will be going against our old back-up Drew Stanton who I don't consider a slouch by any means.

AZ has a great D as well so I would envision a game very similar to the one we just played against Miami. A fight to the end.

Lions 7-2 first time since 1993 The D started Great against Miami first 2 processions then fell asleep for awhile.Stafford should have had Detroit up 17-0 before half time,Poor play calling in red zone. But a win is a win in the end.Detroit should have a better game with the 8-1 Arizona Cardinals next week and come away with a big win.I have Detroit winning 23-17 let the good time roll.!!!!!!!!!!!! Vegas has Detroit +2.5

Too bad Stafford throws several bad passes every game where either the receiver doesn't have a chance catching it or it gets intercepted. Not complaining mind you but I think he could be much better.

Nice win although I thought they were going to blow it.

So far, this game, and the NO/SF game are the best games of the week. I had my clicker jumping between these 2 games.

Very good win for the Lions.

"i like the way you think, Weasel"

;)

"All depends on giving Stafford time to throw to Megatron. He will slice us apart if he has time, but if our ends of Wake and Vernon give him a tough time, then we have a better than decent shot."

With the emergence of Golden Tate, Riddick and the possible return of our injured TE's in addition to Megatron's return, the Lions offense might finally be ready to flex their muscle...

You are right though, a large factor is the battle between the offensive and defensive lines.

Our Offensive line is ready and is certainly one of our strength's now especially that Pouncey is at Guard allowing Satele to play center. James and Thomas are playing great although this, I admit, will be their toughest test so far. On the other hand, our defensive line better be your biggest worry if you want to keep Stafford standing in the pocket. Wake and Vernon are playing great and they both will be doing quarterback hunting this Sunday. If Stafford gets the time to throw to Johnson, then it may be a long day. This, I believe, will be the key to the game. I believe the visitors will prevail.

Well the Lions are ready to rock the house Sunday,The D can smell Tannehill and they will be putting the hurt to him to shut down his passing game.As for th Miller he won't be going places either.With Calvin and Bush back along with Tate Stratford should shred Miami and have a monster game and the D should have a field day.Detroit wins 33-6

Yes there has been a bit of luck on the Lions part but then again luck has been on the side of the opposition in the past. 6-2 sounds good but they really haven't played too many good teams so we'll see how things pan out the rest of the way. After all, we can't get too excited, this is the Detroit Lions we're talking about here.
