Chat with us for ‘Monday Night Football.’

The time has come. No more waiting. No more predictions. No more mock drafts or positional rankings or Super Bowl picks.

Detroit Lions football is now, and it’s time to get HYPED.

In just a few moments, the Lions will kick off against the New York Jets in front of a national audience on “Monday Night Football.” Many of the national eyes will be on Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, but there is so much more to this game.

Will the Lions be able to keep up in what is sure to be a competitive NFC North division? Can Matt Patricia turn this defense into a respectable unit and if so, how long is it going to take?

We won’t get all of the answers tonight, but we’re getting real football that really matters. If that can’t get you amped up, I have no idea what you’re doing here.

So chat during the first half of the game below, and GO LIONS!
