Only three weeks remain in the 2011 NFL regular season. For the Detroit Lions, this means the only games left on the schedule are road contests against the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers and a home game against the San Diego Chargers on Christmas Eve.
In Week 14, two of those future opponents -- the Packers and Raiders -- played. It was the very definition of a one-sided affair, as the Raiders got blown out of the stadium by Green Bay. It wasn't close from the start, and this was a game not even worth watching after about a quarter.
The Chargers, Detroit's other future opponent, was involved in a blowout at home as well. San Diego took care of business against the Bills to win its second game in a row. This comes after they had lost six straight games, so it looks like San Diego is finally getting things back on track.
