Rams,Vikings, Falcons, Carolina and Seattle all have tough schedules. And many play each other so helps in either wild card or division


Thursday matters the most though for division. Can't go 3 back essentially with 5 to play. 5-0 Lions and 1-4 Vikings would need to happen in that case


That 10 second run off bullshit better not haunt the Lions

That's what happen when your dumb ass OC throws it short of the end zone. His typical MO inside the red zone.

Refs made several blunders on that last drive. It wasn't Cooters fault.

Obviously Thursday is extremely important...

That said, we should be rooting hard for NO for the Lions to win a WC spot. A loss for Carolina and LA and two losses for Atlanta would be a huge help.

I like the Saints anyway so I donít mind hopping on board the 14-2 train.

We are talking about the Lions so you can pretty much be assured that it will.

but that's ok cuz they'll change the rule for us for next year.

The Lions are literally 2 yards away (Falcons game and Steelers game) from 8-2 and leading the division. And Stafford injury from a better game with the Saints. This place would be a lot more peaceful then
