At RT Hilliard is out, and Waddel didn't practice today with a sore calf. Which he has a boot on.
At CB Bentley is out. They actually brought in Champ, and that guy who supposedly went awol from the Jets.
In their places Rookies will be asked to take their places. Reynolds at RT, and Lawson in the secondary.
Hopefully CJ can have a field day, as the Lions love to use only their 5 linemen and send everyone else out in pattern. If CJ and company can get pressure, it may cause the Lions to leave someone in to help in protection. Any way you can limit the number of receivers Matt has, is a win for us.
Lawson, and any scrub they bring in to that mess they have back their is only going to help us. They are a train wreck in the secondary. If we can keep their front four off of Cam, our passing game should prosper. The Lions will blitz, but they don't make a habit of it. And Cam can be a beast against the Blitz.
We need to run the ball well, something the Lions are sketchy at. It not only opens up play action, but it slows down their pass rush. Unlike our front four that stops the run on the way to the QB, theirs has a tendency to rush pass the RB as they rush the passer.
If we play Panther football, we should win. At this point in time, they are playing better under Caldwell. But these are still the Lions. Don't let Megatron go off, and keep the running game in check is still a good way to get the win.
tl/dr version. The Lions are hurting in the secondary and RT. If we can take advantage of those 2 weaknesses, we should get the win.
