Detroit Lions vs. Dallas Cowboys live first half open thread

Come chat with us during our live open thread for Detroit Lions vs. Dallas Cowboys.

NFL: Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys are about to face off in one of the biggest matchups of Week 17. Both teams may have already clinched playoff spots, but this is a huge measuring stick game for Detroit. As for the Cowboys, they’re still battling to grab the lead back in the NFC East. That’s a big deal since Dallas has been so much better at home than away.

But Dan Campbell always has his team ready to play in primetime, and it would be foolish to think otherwise this week, even after last week’s emotional win and NFC North title.

The matchup itself is an intriguing one. Penei Sewell vs. Micah Parsons. Can the Lions pass defense even slow down the electric Cowboys passing offense? Will Jahmyr Gibbs continue his late push for Offensive Rookie of the Year against a Cowboys defense that is vulnerable on the ground?

We’ll get answers to that question in just a few hours.

For now, scroll down to the bottom of the page and chat with all the other Lions faithful in our comment section during the first half. When the game moves to halftime, go back to the home page and look out for the second half open thread.

See you on the other side, and GO LIONS!
