LOOK: Las Vegas shifts point spread for Detroit Lions vs. Miami Dolphins

On Sunday, the Detroit Lions will be in Miami to take on the AFC East-leading Dolphins. Once the Dolphins announced that Brock Osweiler would be starting at quarterback because of Ryan Tannehill’s injury, the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas set the opening point spread at the Lions -2.5. Now, that line has shifted and the Lions are now a 3-point favorite over a Dolphins team that is extremely dangerous when playing on their home field. The one advantage the Lions have is that they are coming off a bye, which gave them extra time to prepare for the Dolphins. BONUS CONTENT: The pride came...

Gustav Nyquist nets his first of the year in OT in Red Wings’ first win [VIDEO]

Attention everyone, this is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill: the Detroit Red Wings have won their first game of the year. It wasn’t looking good for Detroit after 20 minutes of play. The Florida Panthers went to the dressing room with a 2-0 lead over the Red Wings. They answered the call, though. Detroit put up three goals in the 2nd period to take the lead heading into the final frame. Goals were courtesy of Dennis Cholowski (2), Thomas Vanek (2), and Dylan Larkin (4). The Panthers struck again late though, when Mike Hoffman put a questionable shot through Jimmy Howard,...

BREAKING: Detroit Lions make decision on DE Ezekiel Ansah

On Sunday, the Detroit Lions will look to get to .500 when they go on the road to take on the Miami Dolphins. In order to accomplish that, the Lions will need all hands on deck as the Dolphins play much better at home than they do on the road. Embed from The Lions released their final injury report of the week and the only player listed as out was Theo Riddick. Also included on the report were guard T.J. Lang and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, who were both listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. On Saturday, the Lions made the decision that Ansah would miss yet another game as he has been...

Detroit Lions release final Week 7 Injury Report

On Sunday, the Detroit Lions will be in south Florida to take on the AFC East-leading Miami Dolphins. It is no secret that the Dolphins play much better at home than they do on the road and the Lions will have to bring their A-game if they want to come out victorious. The hope is that Detroit gets a couple of their starters back in guard T.J. Lang and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah as both had a full practice on Friday. Those decisions likely will not be made until Sunday morning as both are listed as questionable on the Week 7 Injury Report. Joining Lang and Ansah on the Injury Report is...

Detroit Pistons player could have been Michigan QB, still roots for Wolverines

When it comes to professional athletes, many of them excelled in more than one sport at the high school level. That is no different for Detroit Pistons SG Luke Kennard. Embed from As we know, Kennard ended up going to Duke to play basketball but looking back, there was a chance that he went to Michigan to be the Wolverines quarterback. Kennard recently told the Detroit News that he was recruited as a quarterback by then Michigan head coach, Brady Hoke. From Detroit News:  “I didn’t play my senior year because I committed my junior year to Duke, so I decided not to play football,”...

Nightmare comes true for many Detroit Tigers’ fans

As a sports fan, it is never easy to lose a star player to another team and when you lose multiple stars, the pain grows even stronger. Not too long ago, Justin Verlander, J.D. Martinez, Ian Kinsler, and David Price were all members of the Detroit Tigers. Embed from But that was then and this is now and what happened on Thursday night is a nightmare for many Tigers’ fans as they will once again have to watch some of their former players compete for a World Series.

The Steve Yzerman effect is evident in Tampa Bay’s players

The Detroit Red Wings are officially rebuilding for the first time in decades, and it sure isn’t pretty on the ice right now, having started the new season with a dismal 0-4-2 record. Fans know that this frustration is a necessary step in returning the franchise to its former glory, and one major component of the rebuild could be arriving next season – and have the same effect it did 35 years ago the first time it happened: turning a team around. When Steve Yzerman announced that he was stepping down as the general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning, speculation immediately ran rampant...

Injury Update: Detroit Lions could be without key offensive threat vs. Dolphins

During a bye week in the NFL, the hope is that players have time to recover from injuries and refresh the bodies prior to the team’s next game. That seems to be the case for some Detroit Lions’ players as both T.J. Lang and Ezekiel Ansah returned to practice on Wednesday, though both were limited. Embed from But one player, who was on the injury report prior to the Lions last game has now missed his second consecutive practice and is in jeopardy of being inactive for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. That player is none other than Theo Riddick. Still no RB Theo Riddick at...

Red Wings getting some help back on defense against Tampa

The Detroit Red Wings are finally getting some good news on defense. For weeks it’s been injury after injury decimating the Red Wings’ defense corps. Regardless, they’ll be getting back the services of defenseman Trevor Daley when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. Daley has been out of the lineup since October 7, when he fell to the ice and took an L.A. Kings’ player’s knee to the head. Keeping him off the ice was “more cautionary than anything”, but necessary. I jammed my neck, so a couple days just precautionary more so than anything. Daley expected to play Thursday:...

Golden Tate destroys Albert Wilson’s claim he is YAC King

Last Sunday, during an overtime win over the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson had a day. In the game, Wilson hauled in six receptions for 155 yards and a pair of touchdowns. What made the receiving numbers even more impressive is that 136 of those yards came after the catch. Or as most refer to it, YAC.
