The Detroit News Published 6:06 PM EST Nov 8, 2018 Justin Rogers, John Niyo and Bob Wojnowski of The Detroit News offer their predictions on the outcome of Sunday’s Lions vs. Bears game at Soldier Field in Chicago (1 p.m., Fox/760). Justin Rogers: After struggling against good defenses in Seattle and Minnesota, it doesn't get much easier against Chicago's talented and thriving unit. Add that to what is traditionally less-than-ideal November conditions and it's difficult to be optimistic about the Lions' chances of getting back on track. Bears, 20-13 John Niyo: The Bears’ offense is far less predictable, but it’s still limited with Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback. If Chicago’s defense gets Khalil Mack back from injury this week, though, Matthew Stafford could be in for another rough outing. Bears, 24-23 Bob Wojnowski: The Bears run the ball well and pressure the quarterback, not a good combination for the Lions. Matthew Stafford needs much better protection … [Read more...] about Detroit News predictions: Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears

Justin Rogers The Detroit News Published 2:37 PM EST Nov 8, 2018 Allen Park — For the second time in three weeks, the Detroit Lions will be tasked with stopping a three-headed backfield. It didn’t go well against Seattle, when the Seahawks nickel and dimed their way to 176 yards on the ground with running backs Chris Carson and Mike Davis and the measured scrambles of quarterback Russell Wilson. This week, division foe Chicago brings a similar, if not more diverse, attack centered around Jordan Howard, Tarik Cohen and quarterback Mitch Trubisky. Howard is the group’s thunder. The 6-foot, 224-pounder has had some struggles in the Bears’ new offensive scheme but remains the top option in the rotation. He’s averaging a career-low 3.5 yards per carry through eight games this season, but he has four touchdowns in the past three games. More: Lions' Kenny Golladay patient but looking to do more Cohen is the lightning. He's … [Read more...] about After Seattle struggles, Detroit Lions face another tough three-headed backfield

By Matt Schoch Special to The Detroit News Published 10:47 PM EDT Oct 27, 2018 Damon “Snacks” Harrison has us thinking about food this week, as the newest Lions’ addition arrived right in time for trick-or-treat season here in Detroit. The defensive tackle comes from the New York Giants with an impressive menu of accomplishments, including an All-Pro selection in 2016. As the usually well-fed Justin Rogers noted this week, Harrison has been dominant against the run, gorging ballcarriers into his belly. Here are five things to watch in Sunday’s main course against Seattle (1 p.m., FOX, WJR 760): 1. Will “Snacks” eat? Harrison should get a raucous welcome from a Ford Field crowd starving for a run-stuffer. The Lions enter at 29th in the NFL, dishing out 139.3 yards per game. Now, Seattle’s Chris Carson might not be an automatic fantasy running back play Sunday, and beware: Mike Davis has been a hungry touchdown vulture in the red … [Read more...] about Five things to watch: Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks (1 p.m,, FOX, 760 AM).
The Detroit News Published 2:40 PM EDT Oct 26, 2018 Justin Rogers, John Niyo and Bob Wojnowski of The Detroit News offer their predictions on the outcome of Sunday’s Lions vs. Seahawks game at Ford Field (1 p.m., Fox/760). Justin Rogers: This is a game where home field matters. I wouldn't feel comfortable taking the Lions on the road this week, but it's the Seahawks making the long trip east. When the talent margin is narrow, that's enough to be the difference. Lions, 22-19 John Niyo: Both teams are in a similar spot, and not just in the NFC standings. Seattle’s recommitted to the run game and overhauling its defense. But I’ll go with the home-field advantage and a receiving corps that’s becoming a matchup nightmare for most teams. Lions, 27-21 Bob Wojnowski: Let the Snacks Era begin! OK, so the acquisition of nose tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison isn’t necessarily a season-changer, but it sure can change the Lions’ run … [Read more...] about Detroit News predictions: Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks
