Who is the Lions' 'craftiest' player?

Who is the Detroit Lions' "craftiest" player? On #GMCPlaybook we ask @SBNation Who’s hiding something? Let’s talk crafty veterans and what gives them the edge. http://t.co/Fm84ekOka0 — Marshall Faulk (@marshallfaulk) November 26, 2014 This week's question from Marshall Faulk has to do with crafty players. Specifically, Faulk is interested in hearing about the craftiest veterans on each team and what makes them deserving of that description. When I hear the word "crafty" associated with a football player, I generally think of a talented offensive lineman who is able to hide when...

LIONS QB MATTHEW STAFFORD On what today's offensive performance does for the team going forward: "It's something to build off of.

Jim Caldwell discusses Lions' win over Bears

A recap of what Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell had to say following Thursday's win over the Chicago Bears. Below is a look at what Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell had to say after Thursday's win over the Chicago Bears. (Quotes provided by the Lions.) Opening statement: "Overall I think it was a pretty good performance by our guys. I thought they came out to play. The first couple possessions they (Bears) had a 55-yard drive on a pretty short field and then a five-yard drive after the sack-fumble, but our guys stiffened up and did a tremendous job. The defense did a great...

Three takeaways from Lions' win over Bears

Here are three things that jumped out to me on Thursday during the Detroit Lions' win over the Chicago Bears. The Detroit Lions beat the Chicago Bears by a score of 34-17 on Thursday. Here are my three main takeaways from the game: It was nice to see the offense play up to its talent level for a change The Lions certainly got off to a questionable start on offense from a play-calling and execution standpoint, but once everything finally clicked, it was fun to watch. The Lions ended up having 474 total yards, and Matthew Stafford was especially impressive, going 34-for-45 for 390 yards and...

Lions-Bears final score: Detroit gets back on track with 34-17 win

The Detroit Lions feasted on the Chicago Bears in a 34-17 victory. After falling into a 14-3 hole early on against the Chicago Bears, it looked like the Detroit Lions were going to give fans a disappointing Thanksgiving. The offense continued to struggle, and the defense and special teams got off to a shaky start. Luckily, the best was yet to come. The Lions stormed back to take a 24-14 lead before halftime, and they maintained their grip on the game in the second half. By the end of the game, the Lions were able to cruise to a 34-17 victory, snapping their two-game losing streak and giving...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions final score: Bears lose 34-17

The Bears needed a win in Detroit, but the Lions walked away the victor. The Chicago Bears entered Ford Field on a two-game winning streak, with hopes of turning their season around and trying to back their way into the 2014 playoffs.  But the Detroit Lions had other plans, imposing their will on Chicago, on both sides of the football.  The Lions left the building with a 34-17 win, bringing their record to 8-4. While the Bears (5-7) aren't yet mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, they would need to win out AND see about half the NFC have complete and utter meltdowns in order to...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions 3rd Quarter Open Thread

Join us below for live updates and instant analysis of today's Bears game! **SCORE UPDATE** Chicago Bears 14 Detroit Lions 24 ---------------------------- We've got a real slobberknocker here, folks. The Chicago Bears started the game out hot on offense and defense, tallying a 14-3 score after the 1st quarter. But in the 2nd quarter, the Lions came roaring back, and scored 21 unanswered points. As it stands, the Bears are down 14-24. Chicago will get the ball first to start the 2nd half, so Marc Trestman and Co. will have the opportunity to cut into that lead significantly. Against the best...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions 1st Quarter Open Thread

Join us below for live updates and instant analysis for today's Bears vs Lions game! The stage is all set for the Chicago Bears to get their season turned around-- all they have to do is go out and beat the Detroit Lions. Sounds simple, right? The Lions offensive line is already woeful, and they will be without two of their regular starters. Reggie Bush has been officially ruled out, and Calvin Johnson has still been limping around due to the ankle he injured several weeks ago that knocked him out for a month. While Jeremiah Ratliff has been ruled out for the Chicago Bears, it is Jared...

Lions-Bears inactives: Reggie Bush, Riley Reiff out for Detroit

The Detroit Lions will be without running back Reggie Bush and offensive tackle Riley Reiff on Thanksgiving. It's officially time to stop listening to what Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush has to say about his injury status. I say that because for the second week in a row, Bush is inactive after indicating that he was ready to play. He may feel ready, but clearly the Lions' doctors disagree. His return will have to wait until after Thanksgiving. Also out for the Lions on Thanksgiving is starting left tackle Riley Reiff. His absence is no surprise considering he just got injured four...

NFL Week 13: Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions

The Bears play the Lions on Thanksgiving day; we've got everything you need to know right here. The Bears spent the last two weeks stuffing themselves on wins from the Vikings and Buccaneers, but gobbling up another win against the Lions on Thanksgiving day puts them at 6-6, and at .500 for the first time since the game against the Falcons. At that point, there's a chance that talking playoffs may not just be talking turkey. (No, I just can't help the massive cornucopia of puns going on here.) First, though, is the matter of getting that sixth win, because the Lions are right there in the...
