Week 12 Detroit Lions rooting guide

Just because the Lions aren't playing doesn't mean there aren't important games on Sunday. The Detroit Lions are on a three-game winning streak and that has some fans talking playoffs. But even if you aren't deluding yourself with postseason hopes, almost every game on Sunday affects the Lions in one way or another. Here's your Week 12 rooting guide for a Lions-less Sunday: Oakland Raiders (4-6) at Tennessee Titans (2-8) -- 1 p.m. ET, CBS This game has no bearing on the Lions in terms of playoffs, since both teams are AFC contenders.

NFL Draft Watch: Week 13 (Rivalry Trail Mix Edition)

This week, we take a look around college football at some of the other stars that may have slipped through the cracks on teams we haven't gotten around to yet. Alex Reno wanted to take this Saturday off from keeping keen eyes on the field for future professional footballers, so backup was brought in to take down this particularly gruesome task. I've also been asked to not do this as well as he does in fear of taking his role permanently. We all need a little job security around here. Unfortunately, at this time of the year, all the big games have been accounted for at least once and plenty...

Will Jim Caldwell survive the front office change?

When the Lions were 1-7, Jim Caldwell's firing was a foregone conclusion, but with the team on a three-game winning streak, could Caldwell save his job? Three weeks can change a lot. A balmy autumn afternoon can be replaced by two feet of snow. A presidential candidate can gofrom a leading candidate to an afterthought. Or, an NFL franchise can transform from a team in desperate need of a complete organizational overhaul to a team that may just need some minor tweaks. At 1-7 during the bye week, directly off the heels of a 45-10 beatdown via the Kansas City Chiefs, the Detroit Lions needed...

Quick thoughts on the Lions' dominant 45-14 victory over Eagles

There's a lot to like about the Detroit Lions' performance against the Philadelphia Eagles. Matthew Stafford was nearly perfect today. His final stat line of 27-38 for 337 yards and 5 touchdowns doesn't even tell the entire story. Stafford laid some beautiful balls to his receivers, and even had to deal with a few drops. His numbers could have (and should have) been even better. I didn't give much credit to the Detroit Lions' running game last week, but this week it definitely deserves some props. Though they only finished with 108 yards and 3.6 a carry, those numbers were weighed down...

Lions-Eagles recap: Detroit cooks the birds, 45-14

The Detroit Lions absolutely dominated the Philadelphia Eagles in their most impressive win of the season. In what was their most complete game of the season, the Detroit Lions dominated the Philadelphia Eagles in all phases of the game. The final score was 45-14, but this game was decided much early in the third quarter. The Lions played their best half of football to start the game, but it wasn't without some early struggles. After the Eagles missed a long field goal, the Lions went three-and-out in ugly fashion. However, they quickly rebounded, responding with six straight offensive...

Fletcher Cox and Eagles defense could cause problems for Lions' shaky offensive line

An enemy perspective on the upcoming Eagles-Lions game. The Philadelphia Eagles 2015 regular season football schedule continues this week with a game against the Detroit Lions. The Eagles can maybe keep their season alive with a win on Thanksgiving. In advance of this game, I reached out to our friends over at Pride Of Detroit. The great Alex Reno (@alex_reno) kindly took the time to answer my questions about the upcoming matchup. Let's take a look at his answers. 1) The Lions got off to a pretty bad start this year but they’ve won their last two games. Why the sudden success? It’s...

Quick thoughts on the Lions' 18-13 win over the Raiders

Some quick analysis from the Lions' third win of the season. This team is starting to look more and more like the 2014 Detroit Lions. Sunday was another dominant performance from the defense. How dominant? Derek Carr, who came into the game with the sixth-best passer rating of 101.4, was held to lowest yardage total and passer rating since Week 1 -- a game in which Carr only played a half. This is especially surprising considering the Lions are not receiving much of a pass rush from their defense. This is all on the secondary. Once again, the secondary was led by Darius Slay, who...

Game recap: Lions beat Raiders 18-13, make it two in a row, things are okay

Frustrating, but ultimately successful. All without any fireballs or disasters. These are new emotions this year! Let's explore them. What is this nonsense? Did the Lions just close out a game with A.) offense in the second half and B.) running plays to burn the clock while simultaneously securing game-ending first downs to result in C.) a second consecutive win for the third win of the season? Did Darius Slay just silence Amari Cooper, one of the prolific rookies of this latest draft class, and prove himself a shutdown corner for a second week running? The box score doesn't lie. It's right...
