If the Lions are going to turn the season around they need to learn to string wins together. That starts Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

The win against the Jaguars was an excellent example of the type of team football the Lions are capable of. Now they need to do it consistently.

So, today’s question of the day is:

Which player will have a big game against the Falcons?

My answer: Kenny Golladay

After last week, I wanted to take D’Andre Swift, but the Falcons’ pass defense is miserable and Kenny Golladay should be in for a big game. The Falcons are missing cornerback Darqueze Dennard and safety Damontae Kazee to injury, and they’re now forced to rely on two inexperienced players in the secondary — cornerbacks A.J. Terrell and safety Kendall Sheffield.

Golladay had his first 100 yard game against the Jaguars last week and should do it again on Sunday.

What do you think?
