Lions block the Packers from interviewing defensive coordinator Teryl Austin

Lions block the Packers from interviewing defensive coordinator Teryl Austin

Teryl Austin will not get the opportunity to interview in Green Bay Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin reportedly interviewed with the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday for their vacancy at the same position. The move required permission from the Lions, considering it was a lateral move. Though the Lions reportedly gave the Bengals permission, they did not offer the same courtesy to the Green Bay Packers. According to both NFL Network and ESPN, the Lions have blocked the Packers’ request to interview Austin for their defensive coordinator position. I'm told the #Lions have...

Monday open thread: Do you feel better, worse or the same after the Lions’ win over the Packers?

Monday open thread: Do you feel better, worse or the same after the Lions’ win over the Packers?

How are we feeling on this Victory Monday/New Year’s Day? Happy New Year, Pride of Detroiters. Sadly 2018 immediately brings a new season for the Detroit Lions: The offseason. But it wasn’t without a swift drubbing of the Green Bay Packers on New Year’s Eve. After a—stop me if you’ve heard this one before—slow start, the Lions righted the ship and pretty much dominated the Packers from start to finish. The end result was a decisive 35-11 victory and a season sweep of Green Bay for the first time since 1991. It didn’t really amount to anything and it probably didn’t save Jim...

Teez Tabor leaves game with an arm injury; questionable to return vs. Packers

Teez Tabor leaves game with an arm injury; questionable to return vs. Packers

The rookie cornerback didn’t get much of a chance to display his skills in the season finale. One of the most intriguing storylines for the Detroit Lions’ season finale was the play of rookie cornerback Teez Tabor. With Nevin Lawson out of the game because of a concussion, Tabor was likely going to get a lot more playing time than normal. However, in the first quarter against the Green Bay Packers, Tabor left the game with an apparent arm injury. Tabor was part of a violent collision in which Quandre Diggs blew up Packers receiver Randall Cobb on a deep pass. Diggs forced the...

Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers: NFL Week 17 TV schedule, online streaming, announcers, odds, more

Here’s the gameday information for the Lions’ Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers. Week 17. Playoff lives are on the line. Teams will be battling for crucial seedings in their respective conferences. A few divisions are still up for grabs. But who cares about any of that because the Detroit Lions are playing their final game of the season and they have the opportunity to sweep the Green Bay Packers for the first time since 1991. That year also happened to be the last time the Lions went an entire season without facing Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers. Funny how that works. Anyways,...

Saturday open thread: Are you rooting for a Lions win vs. Packers or a better draft pick?

Saturday open thread: Are you rooting for a Lions win vs. Packers or a better draft pick?

The age-old debate is back. We’ve reached that classic point in the season for a non-playoff team. It’s the time of the year that splits the fanbase in half. Is it your civic duty as a Detroit Lions fan to root for the team to win, no matter the circumstance? Or is it better to have the team’s long-term interests in mind and root for a better draft spot, no matter how small the difference? As the Lions face off against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, each Lions fan must battle that internal debate. There’s no right answer. There isn’t one way a “true fan” must act. I’ve...

NFL Week 17 preview: Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers On Paper

On Paper breaks down the 2017 season finale for the Detroit Lions. Congratulations. You’ve made it to the season finale of On Paper. The Detroit Lions’ 2017 season comes to a whimper of an end on Sunday as they face the rival Green Bay Packers. It has been a whirlwind of a season for both teams. After Week 4’s win over the Vikings, the Lions were on top of the division and up to No. 2 in the power rankings. It was pretty much all downhill from there. For the Packers, the season shattered with Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone in Minnesota. There was a blip of hope when he came back for a...

Wednesday open thread: Will you be watching Sunday’s Lions-Packers game?

Wednesday open thread: Will you be watching Sunday’s Lions-Packers game?

With nothing on the line, will you be watching on Sunday? It has been two years since the Detroit Lions have played a meaningless football game. In the 2015 season finale, the Lions traveled to Soldier Field to complete the series sweep of the Chicago Bears and move to 7-9 overall. We didn’t know it at the time, but that would end up being Calvin Johnson’s final game in the NFL. Hopefully there won’t be anything as dramatic lurking in the background of Week 17’s contest between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers. Both teams are out of the playoff race and will be playing for...

Saturday Night Football Part 2 open thread: Vikings at Packers

NFC North showdown to cap off your Saturday night. The nightcap of the NFL’s special Saturday Holiday Weekend Spectacular must have looked really good on paper a few months ago. An NFC North showdown between two playoff-level teams: The Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers! But things went off the rails for the Packers as soon as Aaron Rodgers’ shoulder hit the turf back in Minnesota. Green Bay went 3-5 without their trusted leader, and their chance at revenge this week was thwarted last week in Carolina. Rodgers attempted an unlikely comeback for the Packers, but a loss to the...
