PODcast: A battered hand and a crushing playoff picture

With Stafford fighting injury, can the Lions survive the final three games?

NFL: Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions never do or get anything easy. The final stretch of December may somehow prove to be more gut-wrenching and panic-inducing than the rest of the Lions season thus far, and that’s a pretty damn tall order to tackle.

With quarterback Matthew Stafford suffering a PIP injury and dislocating his middle finger, the engine that’s carried the Lions this far suddenly has a kink to it. How much will it impact the final three games for the Lions? Are we sweating the Packers and Giants even more now? Can we talk about some fun things in the podcast mailbag? Of course we get answers to all of that, but you got to listen to the Pride Of Detroit PODcast to know.
