TEAMS: Detroit Lions
If one was struggling to locate a list of top running backs in the NFL they would only need to review the Detroit Lions schedule -- making the task of stopping Monday night's opposing running back Matt Forte a challenge, but not necessarily foreign.

Megatron says Asomugha flopped

Calvin Johnson accused Nnamdi Asomugha of flopping on an offensive pass interference call that erased his second touchdown of the season.

Report: Suh called police after accident

In football, they say the tape doesn't lie. The same can be said for 911 calls. Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been accused of leaving the scene of an accident last week by the driver of the other vehicle, Steve Vines. Suh and Vines were involved in a fender-bender the morning of Oct. 11 near the Lions' practice facility in Allen Park. WJBK-TV, the...

Ndamukong Suh says he wants to remain with the Lions

It’s not easy to get anything out of Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, but it seems like he wants to remain with the Lions when his contract is voidable after the 2014 season. Speculation about Suh’s desire to remain in Detroit arose when his sister and public relations manager Ngum Suh tweeted what initially looked to be a cryptic post on her brothers desire to stay with the Lions. Thank...

Suh's reputation takes more hits

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions bad boy Ndamukong Suhs reputation has gotten as nasty off the field as it is on it. Just last week: Suh was accused of sideswiping another vehicle near the Lions' practice facility, berating the other driver and leaving the scene of the accident (police closed the case without any arrests or tickets being issued). He got sued, along with...

Lions would love to start faster

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) The Detroit Lions are averaging a little more than two touchdowns in the fourth quarter this season. Finding that same production before the start of the final period has proved elusive. The Lions (2-3) have scored 73 points in the fourth this season, trailing only Denver's 79, and both victories came after final-period rallies. Detroit scored...

Bear Breakdown: Analyzing the Lions’ Defense For Week Seven

When a team can put up the sort of offensive numbers that the Detroit Lions can, it is easy to ignore what they do defensively. So far in the 2012 season, the Lions defense is giving up an average of 324 yards of total offense, good enough for ninth best in the league. The strength of the Lions’ defense lies in its front four.  Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is still a terror...

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears: Week 7 NFL Pick

Detroit Lions (2-3) at Chicago Bears (4-1) This week, I put the Bears 1st in my Power Rankings. With the exception of the Thursday Night loss to Green Bay, the Bears have looked great this season, winning every game by 16 or more and only surrendering 7 sacks in 4 games. While you can’t completely ignore what happened on Thursday Night Football, it’s unreasonable to put too much...

Week Seven NFL Preview: Detroit Lions @ Chicago Bears

The Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears will meet for the 165th time ever on Monday night. The Bears lead the all-time series 94-65-5. Last season, they split the season series with Detroit winning the first game 24-13 in Week Five and Chicago winning the second game 37-13 in Week Ten. The Bears are coming off a bye week and are currently on a three-game winning streak outscoring opponents...

Bears Guard Lance Louis Has Come On Strong, Gets Big Test versus Lions' Suh

Lance Louis has thus far been the most consistent offensive lineman on the team during the 2012 season.  Louis has been a solid run blocker and an even better pass blocker.  However to this point in the five games he's started he hasn't faced a player of the same caliber as Ndamukong Suh. Suh has been a dominant force since his arrival in the NFL.  He leads  the league...

Lions May Rely Upon Rookie CB Green

With injuries afflicting the team's defensive backfield, sixth-round draft choice Jonte Green will likely see the field against Jay Cutler and Chicago's offense Monday night. Jim Schwartz commented on Green's improvement at practice this week.
