There have been a lot of close, exciting games this season featuring future Detroit Lions opponents. There weren't a whole lot of them in Week 6, though. Most of the games were decided by more than one score, and even the games that were decided by a touchdown didn't jump out as eye-catching or anything like that.
The story of Week 6 for future Lions opponents was really quarterback changes. The Vikings have switched to Christian Ponder as their starter, and the Raiders traded for Carson Palmer after Jason Campbell went down with an injury. Those storylines caught my eye more than anything in Week 6.
