Game #16 - Detroit Lions (2-13-0) at Dallas Cowboys (9-6-0) - Open Thread

New, comments
The Lions are down to their last game of the season as they head south to Dallas. The Cowboys are going to be fighting hard for a win for a few reasons. First, a win could get them the NFC East title if Philadelphia were to lose. Also, a win gives them much-needed momentum going into the playoffs. Finally, losing to a last place Lions team would just be embarrassing.

I'm glad this season is coming to an end as it has been a tough one to watch. The inevitable record will likely be a dismal 2-14, putting the Lions in position for next year's #1 draft pick.

So, for the last time in 2006, Detroit goes out there to try and salvage something. At this point, however, hope is lost.
