The Detroit Lions are just minutes away from kicking off their third preseason game, which many call the dress rehearsal game. This week, the Lions have gone through the kind of typical work week we’ll see during the season. There’s film study, there’s game-planning, and there’s a higher intensity to the game.
But the big question is whether the starters will play and if they do, for how long? Matthew Stafford has not stepped onto the field yet, and it has led many to baseless speculation about his health. Will the Lions put the rumors to bed by trotting Stafford out there Friday night or will they keep the bubble wrap on until Week 1 in Arizona.
You’ll just have to wait and see until kickoff at 8 p.m. ET. While you wait for the start of the game, check out our pregame coverage:
