Of course, if you look at the history of USA TODAY, this won’t come as a surprise. Look at what they have predicted for Detroit over the past four years:

  • Darrelle Revis had the lowest passer rating allowed in a single season going back to 2006. But last year, Darius Slay cracked the top five, too:

  • Erik Schlitt of Lions Wire broke down some statistics showing how the Lions’ play-action game was actually among the league’s best in 2017, despite having the worst statistical rushing attack.

  • This is the most backhanded compliment you’ll ever see directed at Matt Patricia and the former Patriots coaching staff:

  • Sports Illustrated has an interesting article about the increasing influence of female NFL owners, including Lions owner Martha Ford.

  • Happy 26th birthday to T.J. Jones!
