Week 2 of the preseason is nigh and the Detroit Lions are looking to build off a decent performance in their opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This week the Lions will play in front of their home crowd for the first time as they prepare to face the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals opened the preseason with a 17-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Both teams’ first-team offenses failed to score any points in their preseason opener, so they’ll be looking to improve upon that on Thursday.
