Anquan Boldin on officiating: You know you have to play more than just the team

Anquan Boldin on officiating: You know you have to play more than just the team

Detroit Lions wide receiver Anquan Boldin had a tough game in his team’s 26-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday. Not only did the veteran receiver catch just two of six targets for 24 yards as his team was once again knocked out of the postseason without a victory, but he picked up two flags for unnecessary roughness. And as with many Lions fans who were watching the game, he wasn’t very happy with the calls made by the referees. Anquan Boldin on officiating: "We expected that. There were some calls that left me shaking my head." Said Lions prepared to not get calls.— Brad...

Seahawks-Lions NFC Wild Card: Jim Caldwell says refs told him they got Paul Richardson no-call wrong

Seahawks-Lions NFC Wild Card: Jim Caldwell says refs told him they got Paul Richardson no-call wrong

When Paul Richardson had his incredible catch against the Detroit Lions on Saturday, there was certainly no controversy about it. Just a lot of shock and awe on a “how’d he do that?” contested catch for a touchdown to give the Seahawks a 7-0 lead in their NFC Wild Card game against the Lions. But then NBC went back to the play minutes later to show that Richardson had his right inside the facemask of the Detroit defender and that it should have caused offsetting penalties (the Lions were called for pass interference) and no touchdown. This is an unreal catch, Paul Richardson....

Wild Card Open Thread--Lions v. Seahawks

Wild Card Open Thread--Lions v. Seahawks

The playoffs keep on rolling. Watch the game and hang out with us during the Seattle Detroit game. This morning I went inside the gas station to try and buy vegetable juice because my card wasn’t working when I tried to get gasoline. I needed to see if it was my card or the pump. I sauntered inside. I grabbed two V8s. The cashier was wearing a denim faded jacket, and I thought it was a Titans one. Oh did my heart leap! Someone out there just like me. I looked closer and it ended up being a Detroit Lions one instead. I asked her about the game after seeing her stylish jacket. She told me...

Keys to Victory: How the Seahawks can beat the Lions

Keys to Victory: How the Seahawks can beat the Lions

Today is the day. The NFL postseason is back at CenturyLink Field. The Seattle Seahawks will attempt to continue their run of playoff dominance at home against the Detroit Lions, who, by all accounts, have not been the best team in 2016, but certainly one of the most clutch. Postseason contests are never easy. The teams are too good and the margin for error is becomes little to none. The Seahawks have the ability necessary to beat the Lions. The only problem is that we don’t know which Seattle team will show up on any given day. Fortunately, the Seahawks tend to show up in big moments and...

Seahawks vs Lions preview: 5 Qs and 5 As with Pride of Detroit

Seahawks vs Lions preview: 5 Qs and 5 As with Pride of Detroit

The Seattle Seahawks have won 10 straight home playoff games. The Detroit Lions have lost nine straight road playoff games, dating back to 1957. Which matters because — people need something to talk about. We already know that home teams have an advantage over road teams. The Lions haven’t won a road playoff game in 60 years because they don’t regularly attend the postseason. Streaks are meant to be broken, and right now that’s exactly what the Seahawks rush offense and pass defense look like: Broken. That being said, Detroit has problems of their own. The Lions are 27th in DVOA...
Why Packers could reject Eliot Wolf Lions interview last year, but can’t reject 49ers interview

Why Packers could reject Eliot Wolf Lions interview last year, but can’t reject 49ers interview

The San Francisco 49ers are set to interview Packers executive Eliot Wolf. Green Bay rejected an opportunity last year, but this year is different. The San Francisco 49ers are set to interview Green Bay Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf and director of college scouting Brian Gutekunst on Thursday in Wisconsin. The two interviews look to be the first two the 49ers will conduct in their search for a new general manager. The Wolf interview is particularly interesting because a year ago, the Packers did not let him interview for the Detroit Lions general manager job. What...

NFL Playoff Schedule: Seahawks set to host Lions on Saturday in NFC Wild Card

NFL Playoff Schedule: Seahawks set to host Lions on Saturday in NFC Wild Card

The Seattle Seahawks are the three-seed in the NFC and they will host the six-seeded Detroit Lions in the wild card round of the playoffs next weekend. The Lions had a chance to win their first division title since 1993 with a win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, but they lost for the third straight week. Detroit finishes the year 9-7, while the Seahawks finished at 10-5-1. The Washington Redskins would’ve been the team but they lost to the New York Giants 19-10 on Sunday. Seattle has won a playoff game in each of the last four seasons under Pete Carroll. The Lions haven’t...

Packers-Lions Inactives: Randall Cobb sits again for week 17 matchup

Packers-Lions Inactives: Randall Cobb sits again for week 17 matchup

The Packers will be without one of their top receivers for a second straight week. There's unfortunate news on the inactive list for the Green Bay Packers tonight as they take on the Detroit Lions in week 17. The Packers will not have the services of slot receiver Randall Cobb, who will miss his second straight game with an ankle injury. The Packers used Geronimo Allison heavily last week to help make up for Cobb's snaps, and he came through nicely with four catches for more than 60 yards. For the Lions, running back Theo Riddick was placed on Injured Reserve this weekend, so he does not...

How did the Packers and Lions play five times in 1994?

How did the Packers and Lions play five times in 1994?

We break down the weird way two teams played five times in a calendar year. The Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions have a much stranger history than they’re often credited for. That’s probably in part because out of the Packers’ three division rivals, the Lions have the least built-in hatred. Packers fans have hated the Bears since approximately the dawn of time, and since it’s easy to root against a team with garish purple uniforms and a giant horn in their stadium, the Lions find themselves well behind the Vikings, too. But don’t sleep on the Packers/Lions rivalry, because it...

Packers-Lions Q&A: Matthew Stafford struggling with busted finger

Chris Lemieux of SB Nation's Detroit Lions blog Pride of Detroit answers our questions about Matthew Stafford's busted finger, Detroit's coordinators, and what he expects from Packers vs. Lions. On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers square off with the Detroit Lions for the NFC North title. Chris Lemieux of Pride of Detroit was kind enough to answer some of our questions about the Lions and provide insight into their strengths and weaknesses. APC: The Lions lost three of their first four games, including a 34-27 tilt with the Packers in Week 3. Since that early stretch, Detroit has only lost...

Cheese Curds, 12/29: Packers' secondary faces tough test against Lions' passing game

Cheese Curds, 12/29: Packers' secondary faces tough test against Lions' passing game

Green Bay's defensive backfield will be challenged this Sunday by a strong group of receivers in Detroit. As the Green Bay Packers prepare to face the Detroit Lions on Sunday, they will have to prepare for a physical group of receivers that will line up in blue. Both teams are likely to put up some significant yards and points through the air, but containing the Lions' Matthew Stafford and his wideouts will be a tall task. Detroit's receiving corps is not an overly explosive one - of the five players who average more than one reception per game, just a single one averages more than 12 yards...

A Tale Of Two Halves For The Cowboys Defense In Win Over Lions

A Tale Of Two Halves For The Cowboys Defense In Win Over Lions

It didn’t look good at the start, but the Cowboys defense got itself together. The Dallas Cowboys offense looked just fine in the team’s win over the Detroit Lions on Monday night. Over the course of the game they put up 42 points, scoring 21 in each half. For a while, it looked like it might not be enough. The Lions offense matched the Cowboys in the first half, scoring 21 points and creating a tied contest at halftime. Not only were the Lions scoring points, but they were running the ball with authority on Dallas. The Cowboys came into the game as the best rushing defense in the...

Jerry Jones Says Tyron Smith Is “Fine” After Injury Scare In Lions Game

Breathe a sigh of relief. There was very scary moment for the Dallas Cowboys in their demolition of the Detroit Lions. The Cowboys won the game 42-21 but on a running play in the second half Tyron Smith came up with a knee injury. Fortunately, Jerry Jones says Smith is fine. Jerry Jones says Tyron Smith is "fine." Cowboys had an eye on him and opted not to return him to the game.— David Helman (@HelmanDC) December 27, 2016 Smith was pulling outside on a sweep and a Lions cornerback went low on him, hitting him right on the knee. Smith got up but immediately hobbled to the sideline....

Cowboys Are Anything But Complacent, Blasting Lions (Final Score) 42-21 To Move To 13-2

Cowboys Are Anything But Complacent, Blasting Lions (Final Score) 42-21 To Move To 13-2

The plan was clearly to keep the pedal to the metal for Dallas, and they did, scoring the most points of the season. If you were expecting a lackluster effort from the Dallas Cowboys after the NFC East and home field advantage for the playoffs were locked up, you were very, very wrong. Facing the Detroit Lions, who were playing with their own playoff chances very much in the balance, they stormed to a 42-21 victory where the Cowboys were at times unstoppable on offense and, after looking very vulnerable in the first half, the defense put the clamps on the Lions. Dak Prescott had his best...

Join us as we recover from Christmas with this MNF Clash. Now that Christmas is all done and dusted, it’s time to shift our attention towards the final week of the NFL regular season and the playoff seedings. The Cowboys have locked up the NFC East and the #1 seed in the NFC after the Giants lost to the Eagles. The Lions, however, are in the middle of a dogfight with Green Bay for the NFC North crown. Like the Texans’ situation, all the Lions have to do is win tonight and they clinch a playoff spot. Regardless of what happens in Arlington tonight, Detroit will head into their Week 17...
