This game doesn't seem so imposing as it did 3 weeks ago. Especially, if OBJ doesn't play.

We also catch a break next week against the Falcons because Vic Beasley is already out for the next 4weeks with a bad hamstring.

And we also catch a break against Carolina due to Olson being lost for 4-6weeks with a broken foot.

That's the problem with making season predictions before any games are played. You don't know who will be hurt.

Well that last defensive series is more what I was expecting. Ugh. Terrible in so many ways. Whitehead has regressed badly the last 2 seasons.

Greg Robinson must be brain dead. The guy makes the dumbest mistakes. He's a penalty machine...still.

Complete team win. Balanced offense, smothering defense, special teams were special. Run defense played well, and much of the QB pressure we achieved was the result of solid secondary play. We won in-spite of poor officiating.

It's hard to argue with a win, though next week is going to be a tough game. I think it was Stafford's best 122 yd performance ever. Agnew is pretty sweet. Our running game isn't great but still looked better.

It's funny I was watching one show earlier on Monday and the analyst kept talking about how the Lions needed a "boring" win. Just get a lead and hang on to it. They did that. As exciting as comebacks are, I like seeing them in control of a game.

Well done Lions... Nothing too special outside of the return for a TD but getting a road win like that on MNF is pretty sweet.

Left side of our OL was pretty weak and wasn't impressed with our LB's but DL and DBs looked solid on defense and offense did what they needed to do.

More rushing than passing yards - when was the last time that happened?

Watching other games this weekend there are really a lot of bad offensive lines in the league so the Lions don't look too bad, especially when they get TD back.

Go Lions!

I had to listen on radio. I can't wait to watch it this weekend. Did the refs hose us on the fumble return TD? The announcers were kind of indifferent about it.

It was funny that the left side of the line was terrible, yet they kept running to the left side. I didn't understand that at all.

The lions were getting out coached for the first half of the 2nd quarter. They looked bad on both sides of the ball for a couple drives. However, they turned it around and the D played very well.

The kitties did get lucky though. The Giants had numerous dropped balls, boneheaded plays where they ran routes short of the sticks, penalties, times lineman tripped or fell down, Eli throwing behind a WR leading to a tipped pick, etc. good teams won't make those mistakes. Yeah, I'm talking about Atl, GB, etc. hopefully we get the bad versions of these good teams.

Also, NY was missing multiple primary players (MLB, cb, wr, s). Plus, our MLB was hurt...JMR was not good at the will either. Hopefully Davis can go next week.

Great game kitties, but look at all the details and fix what's broken.

No billy we didnt get hpsed on the defensive td, elis knee was definitely down. There were just alot of really bad ticky tack holding calls.

OBJ is my least favorite player in the league for hits precisely like the one on Davis and Norman, i hope he really gets whats coming to him amd gets cheap shotted hard. I noticwd every run to the left involved a motion of a player into a wing on the right side.

Also, greg robinson got obliterated on almost every snap by vernon. We could really use decker back.
