When the Lions visited New Orleans during the regular season, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was back home in Oregon because he was suspended for his Thanksgiving stomp. So Saturday’s Lions-Saints playoff game will be the first time the Saints’ offensive linemen have blocked Suh. And what do they expect to see? Pretty much what everyone…
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Ndamukong Suh was parked in front of the TV when the Detroit Lions played the New Orleans Saints last month, watching his teammates lose, 31-17, while he served the first part of a two-game suspension for stomping an opponent.
The Saints and Lions have two of the four highest-scoring offenses in the NFL, but Suh wouldn't concede that Saturday's game is going to be a shoot-out.
And the claims that Ndamukong Suh is a ‘dirty’ player continue to emerge as we are now on the eve of the Lions first playoff game since the 1999 season.
The latest claim has come from New Orleans Saints; Pro Bowl guard Jahri Evans who says Suh is a dirty player after the whistle.
“I think some things he does is dirty, after the whistle,” Evans told The Times-Picayune...
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh missed his team's previous game against the New Orleans Saints, but is eager to meet quarterback Drew Brees on Saturday.
Saints guard Jahri Evans is a Pro Bowl lineman preparing for his team’s Wild Card playoff game against the Lions Saturday. He has one of his toughest assignments of the season — protecting Drew Brees from Detroit’s rowdy defensive line led by Ndamukong Suh. Though Evans respects Suh, he recognizes the Lions lineman is dirty.
“I think some things he does is dirty, after the...
New Orleans Saints right guard Jahri Evans is a big fan of Ndamukong Suh's. But he also thinks the Lions' star defensive tackle is dirty and has hurt himself with overly aggressive play.
The stage is now set for the Detroit Lions to make an improbable run through the NFL Playoffs on their way to this city’s first World Title in 55 years. 55 Years. Exactly the number of years that Detroit has gone without a road playoff victory. If you’re gonna break a streak, why not do in style? Below is a preview by each DS360 Writer on how the Lions beat the Saints Saturday...
Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann jumped on the Tim Tebow bandwagon and is being compared to the Denver Broncos quarterback in an ad paid for by a group of her supporters.
In the days leading up to Tuesday's Republican nomination in Iowa, the TV spot portrayed the Minnesota Congresswoman and Tebow as targets of a political and sports "establishment"...
Saturday night’s matchup between the Detroit Lions and the New Orleans Saints should have a familiar feel.
It was only a month ago these two teams faced off in prime time at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The Saints come in as heavy favorites, but the Lions aren't likely to hand the game over. The Saints are hoping to repeat the results of the December meeting when they...
Matt Millen thought the idea was laughable that Ndamukong Suh is dirty and that the Lions' defense is too aggressive. "Let me tell you something," Millen said during Tuesday night's Sugar Bowl at the Superdome. "There's 32 teams in the league. Call the other 31 and ask them if they want him. End of story."
OK, LET’S KNOCK OUT THE OBVIOUS:
Despite the New Orleans Saints (13-3) having a stellar 8-0 record at home this season, the Detroit Lions (10-6)are banking to show the world they’re not just a “one-and-done” wild card contender, but eventual Super Bowl opponent. Detroit has won every game since losing to New Orleans except their heartbreaking 45-41 loss to Green Bay at...
