Packers Periscope: Week 17 vs Detroit Lions

The Past: While the Lions are still sort of the trailer trash of the NFL; they are a talented team that many thought could be very successful if they ever got out of their own way.  2014 was finally the year that the Lions sort of just let their talent win games and overall, the team has done well.  In week 3 the Packers travelled to Detroit and suffered in my own opinion their...

The last time the Lions won in Green Bay

Detroit Lions: Is the running back tandem enough to win in the playoffs?

If you said the running backs won the game for the Detroit Lions last week, you would obviously be right.

Detroit Lions: News, stats and stars from the Bears game

The Detroit Lions beat the Chicago Bears 20-14 on Sunday, even though it wasn’t pretty. Regardless, these Lions have done what former teams have failed to do in the past: win ugly games.

Game of the week: Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers

Detroit Lions: 5 keys to beating the Chicago Bears in week 16

The day has finally come. How fitting that the Detroit Lions (10-4) season has come down to the game against their biggest rival, the Chicago Bears (5-9). It could be argued, however, that the Bears have fallen from all NFL graces after their game against the Saints and might not prove to be as much of a challenge as we would have thought at the beginning of the season. Nonetheless...
