2017 NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LII predictions

The Pride of Detroit staff makes their Super Bowl predictions. The 2017 NFL Playoffs are just a day away, and although our Detroit Lions are no longer in contention, we’re still going to be watching. Why? Because of the very simple math equation known as Sanders’ Principal: Football > No Football. So I gathered up the Pride of Detroit crew one last time to make their Super Bowl LII predictions. Enjoy. Jerry Mallory - Chiefs over Panthers The NFC is Golden Tate vs. a Packers team trying to lose their last game: wide open. I can’t in good conscience put a Case Keenum or a Nick Foles...

Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers Player of the Game: Who gets the Game Ball?

Time to give out our final Game Ball of the season. It is time for our final Game Ball vote of the year. No matter what happens, no Detroit Lions player will catch Matthew Stafford, who currently has 15 Game Ball points (remember: you earn 3 points for first place in votes, 2 for second place and 1 for third place). However, there’s a log-jam of Lions players for the next five spots or so. Take a look at the standings after Week 16.

Lions notes: Glover Quin thinks Detroit is ‘really close’ to getting over hump

Lions notes: Glover Quin thinks Detroit is ‘really close’ to getting over hump

We always seem to hear this every year, but is Quin onto something? We seemingly hear it every year at this point in the season, but Detroit Lions safety Glover Quin thinks the Lions are “really close” to getting over the proverbial hump. Quin points to the Lions’ young players in key spots as reasons for true optimism. Golden Tate also spoke about the future of the team, but understood that telling Lions fans to be patient can be somewhat insulting: Golden Tate asked what he would say to fans after this season: "I can't say be patient. You've been patient"— Kacie Hollins...

VIDEO: Lions fail to challenge key incompletion in fourth quarter

Did Jim Caldwell make the right choice to keep the challenge flag in his pocket? The Detroit Lions’ playoff chances were on life support. The Lions, needing at least two more points to even up with the Cincinnati Bengals with under four minutes left in the game, faced an impossible third-and-23 deep in their own zone. Matthew Stafford scrambled to his right to buy a little more time then heaved the ball to Golden Tate 50-some yards down the field. Tate, boxing out of his defender, had the ball come straight into his arms, but as Bengals defenders swarmed him, the ball disappeared from...
