  • If you are planning on catching a Detroit Lions game at Ford Field this coming season then you may be able to expand your budget a little more than you thought. The Lions announced their new “Silver Savings” prices on Twitter today, which include affordable meal combos for patrons.

These changes come following the incredibly popular low-priced concessions at the Atlanta Falcons new Mercedes-Benz Arena last season.

  • ESPN released their first preseason power rankings on Tuesday morning and highlighted a player that may surprise the league on every team. Detroit was ranked at a lowly 20th, questionably included behind the likes of the Oakland Raiders and Carolina Panthers. Beat writer Michael Rothstein highlighted rookie Kerryon Johnson as the potential surprise player, which is fitting after his great performance last Friday.
  • Tori Petry returns with another episode of the Detroit Lions official podcast this week. She sat down with former linebacker and current member of the Lions TV Network broadcast crew Chris Speilman to talk about the preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders last weekend.
  • The Kerryon Johnson love continued on this week, where analyst Bucky Brooks gave him an A for his debut performance. Brooks noted that “the Lions might’ve found their ideal combo playmaker at running back.”
  • Football mastermind and creator of Sharp Analytics, Warren Sharp, took some time on Twitter today to reflect on how much an efficient run game could help the Lions in 2018. The entire thread is worth a read but he used one Tweet to sum up the many benefits of having a functioning run game.
