When is the Detroit Lions vs Atlanta Falcons game in London?

The NFL will have a rare Sunday morning game this week. Don't forget. This weekend marks the second of the NFL's International Series games for 2014, with the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons playing in London's Wembley Stadium. The difference between this one and the other two games for this year is the start time. While the other games will start at 1pm ET here in the United States, a 5pm kickoff in London, this week's game is different. This game will start at 1:30pm in London, meaning we will have morning football this week. The Lions and Falcons will be televised nationally on Fox,...
Baltimore Beatdown 7 hours ago

C.J. Mosley suspeneded two games, but don't worry... it's a different one.

Incase you didn't know, the Detroit Lions also have a C.J. Mosley on their roster as well. With almost 1,800 players in the NFL, it's hard to keep track of all of them. When I heard that C.J. Mosley had been suspended, my heart almost skipped a beat. Fortunately, there's also a C.J. Mosley in Detroit. He's a defensive tackle and he won't be playing football for the next two weeks for violating Lions team rules. Not only does this Mosley not get as much spotlight as standout Ravens linebacker (the real C.J. Mosley) but the Lions happen to be in London to take on the Falcons. Mosley, will...
Lions suspend C.J. Mosley for two weeks

Lions suspend C.J. Mosley for two weeks

The Detroit Lions have suspended defensive tackle C.J. Mosley for two weeks, and he has been sent home from London. The Detroit Lions will be without defensive tackle C.J. Mosley on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Mosley didn't suddenly suffer an injury or anything like that, though. Instead, the Lions have suspended him for two weeks for "conduct detrimental" and a "violation of team rules." In fact, the Lions have already sent Mosley home from London, ending his trip overseas. The details on what exactly led to this suspension are unclear, but the Lions have promoted safety Jerome...

International Series 2014: Falcons talk final preparations for the Lions

After emphasising on Wednesday that the team are still in the thick of the NFC South race, the Falcons spent Thursday and Friday discussing the keys to beating the Lions. The 2-5 Falcons may still be talking playoffs - but there's a more immediate concern than the final order of the NFC South: the 5-2 Detroit Lions. Atlanta gave up a home game to host the tenth International Series contest at Wembley, but a lot of ‘home' teams recently have been the recipients of humiliating blow-out losses: the Raiders losing 38-14 last month, the Jaguars losing 42-10 last year, the Rams losing 45-7 the...

Falcons player to watch against Lions: Devin Hester

Falcons player to watch against Lions: Devin Hester

This week, the opposing player to watch against the Detroit Lions is Atlanta Falcons receiver and returner Devin Hester. Devin Hester, we meet again. After tormenting the Detroit Lions for years as a return specialist for the Chicago Bears, the Lions once again face Hester in Week 8 during his first year with the Atlanta Falcons. In his ninth season, the 31-year-old veteran is showing no signs of letting up as he expands his role beyond special teams and into a full-time receiver. One of the lone bright spots for the Falcons this season is their passing game. Through Week 8, the Falcons are...

Lions notes: Kickalicious stops by practice

Lions notes looks at Havard Rugland, the team's captains this week and much more. Havard Rugland -- yes, the man called Kickalicious -- visited the Detroit Lions' practice on Friday. He wasn't there to try out for the Lions' kicker job or anything like that, though. He simply stopped by to visit with his former team. Had a great time when I visited the Lions practice in London today. Hope they win on Sunday! #lions… http://t.co/HeJYMNb41Q — Håvard Rugland (@MrRugland) October 24, 2014 Havard "Kickalicious" Rugland made an appearance at Lions practice today....

Lions vs. Falcons: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, odds, announcers and more

The Detroit Lions do battle with the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday morning. Here's everything you need to know. After rallying to beat the New Orleans Saints last week, the Detroit Lions have another NFC South opponent on the schedule this week. Specifically, they're going to take on the Atlanta Falcons in London as part of one of the NFL's international games. It should be an interesting game given the location and the start time (see below), and it will provide the Lions with a chance to improve to 6-2 going into their bye week. Here's a look at the details for Sunday's game between the Lions...

On Paper: Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons (London edition!)

On Paper: Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons (London edition!)

Previewing the Detroit Lions' first-ever game in London, which will come against the struggling Atlanta Falcons. The Detroit Lions (5-2) and Atlanta Falcons (2-5) face off this week in London at a time that is totally NOT inconvenient for me to watch. It's going to be unique! It's going to be exciting! And it should be fun to see what it's like to be that stressed out that early in the morning! But my personal comfort aside, this game looks like it could be a good one for our British friends to enjoy. Though the teams have opposite records, they are actually somewhat close in talent. Don't...

Jim Caldwell's quotes from Friday

A recap of Jim Caldwell's comments from Friday. Below is a look at what Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell had to say on Friday. (Quotes provided by the Lions.) Opening statement: "It's our last day here in terms of our preparation and I think you'll find that a lot of our guys are sad to leave. It's been a great setting and a tremendous setting for preparation, particularly when you have an opportunity to have a pretty captive audience. Our guys have been really thankful for all of the staff and all the folks that made this possible for us. It's been fun. Our guys have been able...

Lions-Falcons injury report: Reggie Bush doubtful for Sunday

Reggie Bush is unlikely to play on Sunday for the Detroit Lions, but there's a chance that Calvin Johnson could return. It appears that the Detroit Lions are once again going to be down several weapons on offense this week. Running back Reggie Bush, for example, is doubtful to play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons after not practicing on Thursday and Friday. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew is also doubtful, and tight ends Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria have already been declared out for Sunday's game. On a positive note, wide receiver Calvin Johnson was able to practice on a limited basis...

Fixing the offense should be Lions' top priority during upcoming bye week

What adjustments will the Detroit Lions need to make during their upcoming bye week to ensure they stay in the playoff hunt? It all starts with the offense. This week's question from Marshall Faulk is about what adjustments need to be made to ensure that the Detroit Lions are "fighting for a playoff spot" in the second half of the season. Although the Lions still have one game to go before they are officially halfway through the season, the answer to Faulk's question is quite obvious: Detroit has to fix its offense. The Lions' struggles on offense have been well-documented as of late. The...

Lions notes: Ziggy Ansah makes most of trip to London

Ziggy Ansah said he took a cab and surprised his sister, who lives in London that he hadn't seen in six years. #LionsInLondon — Detroit Lions (@Lions) October 23, 2014 Ansah said he knocked on his sister's door and she "fell on the floor" with surprise at his visit. #LionsInLondon — Detroit Lions (@Lions) October 23, 2014 The Lions practiced at Pennyhill Park Hotel & Spa this week.

NFL Week Eight Preview – Lions at Falcons In London

Matt Ryan has dominated the Lions over the years, but 2014 could finally be the time that Detroit shuts him down as the Lions and Falcons do battle in London Sunday. Ryan is 3-0 against the Lions with a 108.5 rating, but the Falcons are reeling at 2-5, and the Lions are sky-high after their […]

Week 8 NFL picks against the spread: London calls for some football

Here are your Week 8 NFL picks against the spread. Hiya, the Detroit Lions are in London for a business trip, American football, which means I'm obligated to embed the following movie clip from Forgetting Sarah Marshall: I've been to London before, and we were recommended to keep our personal belongings (i.e. wallets and passports) in a bum bag, because of the bums on the Tube who would pickpocket. (Don't know what a bum bag is? Ask the Lions. They know all the British terms. I asked my wife if she knew what a bum bag is and she grossly, yet smartly, guessed a colostomy bag. Let's hope...

Things of that nature: In praise of Teryl Austin

The Detroit Lions' defensive talent has largely stayed the same, but the output is a far cry from past seasons. It's time to celebrate the team's most vital offseason addition: Teryl Austin. I attended a college that didn't have a football team, so I missed out on the tailgating experience. As a result, this Sunday's game will officially mark the earliest I have ever woken up for football. I came into this week with two goals: Take a look at the Detroit Lions' defensive fronts under Teryl Austin. Find a bar in Chicago that will open at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday. As of writing this column, I am...

A recap of Jim Caldwell's comments from Thursday. Below is a look at what Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell had to say on Thursday. (Quotes provided by the Lions.) Opening Statement: "We had a really good day of practice yesterday. Our walk-through went well, the practice in itself was spirited and maybe one of the better days that we've had in the early part of practice with pads on. It was pretty crisp for this time of year. I thought the guys' focus and attention was outstanding. It was the first time we had an opportunity to practice on the new field, ‘the pitch' I should...
