In Week 10, the Detroit Lions' future opponents combined to go 6-1. Here's a look at how each team performed:
Week 11 - at Steelers (3-6) - beat Bills, 23-10
Pittsburgh continued to have some struggles on offense, but its defense was outstanding. The Bills were held to only 227 total yards, and they only managed to find the end zone in the closing seconds of this game.
Week 12 - vs. Buccaneers (1-8) - beat Dolphins, 22-19
The Bucs blew a 15-0 lead on Monday night, but they managed to come back for their first win of the season. Tampa Bay held Miami to 2 yards rushing en route to the victory.
Week 13 - vs. Packers (5-4) - lost to Eagles, 27-13
Seneca Wallace got hurt early on in this game, resulting in Scott Tolzien entering. He was just added from the practice squad earlier in the week, and he finished 24 for 39 for 280 yards, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions. It could be a long few weeks until Aaron Rodgers returns.
Week 14 - at Eagles (5-5) - beat Packers, 27-13
Nick Foles went 12 for 18 for 228 yards and 3 touchdowns. Also, LeSean McCoy rushed for 155 yards on 25 carries. The Eagles offense is rolling right now.
Week 15 - vs. Ravens (4-5) - beat Bengals, 20-17 (OT)
Despite gaining only 189 total yards and allowing A.J. Green to catch a game-tying Hail Mary as time expired in regulation, Baltimore bounced back to win in overtime. This team continues to struggle offensively (they rushed for 2.8 yards per carry and Joe Flacco had only 140 yards), but the Ravens somehow managed to make the AFC North race somewhat interesting.
Week 16 - vs. Giants (3-6) - beat Raiders, 24-20
The Giants continued to struggle with taking care of the ball, as they had 3 turnovers on the day. However, Andre Brown returned and rushed for 115 yards and a touchdown on 30 carries. Between that performance, an Eli Manning touchdown pass to Rueben Randle and a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown, the Giants were able to squeeze out a win against Oakland.
Week 17 - at Vikings (2-7) - beat Redskins, 34-27
Christian Ponder got hurt toward the end of this game, but he had already gone 17 for 21 for 174 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception by that point. Add on 2 touchdowns from Adrian Peterson (he rushed for 75 yards on 2 carries) and 2 field goals by Blair Walsh in the fourth quarter and the Vikes were able to pull away from Washington for the victory.
