The first half of Sunday was pretty kind to the Detroit Lions, if you’re still grasping to playoff hopes. Washington was thoroughly destroyed by the Giants. The Saints dispatched of the Buccaneers after an early scare, and the Browns look like they may take down the Panthers in a big upset.
Of course, it all will likely mean nothing, and it will certainly mean nothing if the Lions don’t take care of their business in the late slate of games.
This week, Detroit travels to Arizona, where they haven’t won since 1993. There they will face an Arizona Cardinals team that is coming off a big win over the Packers, but still sit at just 3-9 overall. They’re injured, their offense—pardon the language—totally sucks, and they aren’t playing for anything but pride at this point.
But you could make the same arguments for the Lions right now. So who will come out of Sunday victorious?
Let’s all watch together.
