It has been a cool nine months since the Detroit Lions left Soldier Field, tasting victory for one final time in the 2015 season. Since then, the Lions have gone through a complete metamorphosis. Martha Ford cleaned house in the front office after hiring general manager Bob Quinn along the way. Calvin Johnson hinted at retirement, went through with it, and then announced he’s pursuing a brief career in dance.

The Lions got a brand new training room and a dietitian to go with it. While Ford Field got a manicure, adding over-sized food items, flashy new lighting systems and, oh yeah, cheerleaders.

Through the draft the Lions added beef, beef and more beef. Through free agency, Detroit grabbed every wide receiver they could find. Darius Slay was extended, Gabe Wright was cut. Joique Bell was offered a contract, declined it, then regretted his decision.

All of those decisions have offered moments of elation, depression, sadness and gladness. But individually, those moves mean very little to us now, because they were all made with one purpose in mind: win. And for the first time in over nine months, we’ll be able to see if that happens. Here are all of the details you’ll need for Lions-Colts.
