The Detroit Lions are limping to the finish line, but that hasn’t stopped their fight. Last week, they took the Green Bay Packers to the end of the fourth quarter, and an onside kick tirecovery was inches away from happening and giving Detroit a shot against the current No. 1 seed in the NFC.
Now the Lions must face off against a division leader in the other conference. The Tennessee Titans are look to make another deep playoff run in 2020 after being bounced in the conference championship last year. Led by an incredibly balanced offense with star running back Derrick Henry in the spotlight, the Titans pose a threat similar to the Packers last week. They’re scoring just one point per game less than the Packers, but have a similarly vulnerable defense.
However, the Lions are missing key players this week. Kenny Golladay and starting center Frank Ragnow are out. Meanwhile, starting quarterback Matthew Stafford appears he’ll play despite a painful rib injury. Will the Lions be able to hang this week or is a blowout on the horizon?
