Week Two preview: Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals

Setting the Stage When I say “marquee matchup,” the Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals are not the first two teams that come to mind. Over the past ten years, the two teams sport a combined record of 113-207, good for a .353 winning percentage. (photo credit: Mark Rebilas/USA Today Sports) Sure, more of that lies on Detroit’s shoulders due to 2008’s 0-16 season, especially...

Lions' leadership council holds team accountable

ALLEN PARK, Mich. The Detroit Lions, at least some of them,are tired ofbeing labeledas an undisciplined bunch of misfits. They formed a leadership council this year, comprised of several veteran players, including receiver Nate Burleson. On Wednesday morning during practice, the entire team ran three half-gassers for each personal foul from Sundays 34-24 opening victory over Minnesota...

Fines don't work with Ndamukong Suh

Ndamukong Suh will never learn. That much is apparent. After the NFL slammed the Lions defensive lineman with a $100,000 fine, Suh fired back with some rhetoric that should, at the very least, get the NFL’s attention. “Really you just play football, that’s all I can do,” Suh said via NFL.com. “…I don’t change, I’m going to always play tough, hard, that’s...

Reggie Bush Dealing with Multiple Injuries

Lions tailback Reggie Bush played through a dislocated thumb, pulled groin and now add hyperextended knee Sunday against the Vikings, according to ProFootballTalk.comFantasy Spin:Bush suffered the injuries in the first half and none kept him from having a great day. It's just troublesome that he's already nicked up with 15 games to go. Handcuffing Joique Bell to the injury...

Lions' WR Ryan Broyles is ready to play, knows he must be patient

By all accounts the surgically repaired right knee of Lions receiver Ryan Broyles is doing fine. He played 30 snaps in the exhibition season and caught two passes for 32 yards. He hasn’t been listed on an injury report for the first two weeks and has participated fully in every practice. Yet there’s no indication of when Broyles might make his regular-season debut or whether...

Canty on Suh penalty: “Offensive linemen do it to defensive linemen all the time”

It sounds like Giants DL is feeling some of Ndamukong Suh’s frustration. He isn’t defending Suh but there is definitely some contempt being held against the legality of low blocks for offensive players. “I think it was dirty,” Canty said. “I have to say this though: I understand his frustration because offensive linemen do it to defensive linemen all the time. But you just...

Ndamukong Suh Receives Even Newer Fine for Illegal Hit

It was all anyone could talk about this week after the Detroit Lions beat up on the Minnesota Vikings; Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was in line for a huge fine, thanks to a cheap hit he put on Vikings center John Sullivan's knee during a play. Suh took a dive towards Sullivan's knee far away from a play, blindsiding Sullivan, who went down with an apparent injury...

Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals: 2013 Week 2 NFL Pick

Detroit Lions (1-0) at Arizona Cardinals (0-1) The Lions won just 4 games last year despite outgaining opponents by the 2nd most yardage in the NFL, by over 1000 yards. This is largely because they surrendered a ridiculous 70 points on return touchdowns, without scoring once in that fashion. If you take that out of the equation, the Lions would have outscored their opponents on...

Key matchup: Finding Forte

Last week, Reggie Bush was the Burning Bush. This week, the Vikings face a similar, but more consistent challenge in Matt Forte. The linebackers have to answer or they’ll be doing plenty of answering questions this coming week.

Patrick Peterson Will Cover Calvin Johnson Sunday

Lions' receiver Calvin Johnson will have talented Cardinals' cornerback Patrick Peterson on him all day long, according to coach Bruce Arians.Fantasy Spin:Nothing that wasn't expected. They matched up last season and Megatron caught 10 balls for 121 yards, though Arizona won the game. Johnson didn't do much in Week 1 with four catches for 37 yards.
