Tied up at 7-7 in the first quarter, Elliott kicked into high gear. He got through the line of scrimmage untouched after cutting back to the open hole on the right side and had a nice angle on Detroit safety...

On the one hand, the increased interest in DFS has led to an explosion in the marketplace over the last six months, and early investors have likely seen their initial capital contributions grow beyond their wildest dreams.

Detroit Lions: The number one player to watch

If we are going to give credit where credit is due, the Detroit Lions defense could not be more deserving. The defense currently ranks second in overall defenses for the second straight week. Last week the Lions held the Buccaneers to only 233 total yards, the seventh time they have limited a team to under 300 yards this season. Even more impressively, the Lions held the Buccaneers...
