Defense is much better than I thought it would be.

Suh and VandenBosch were great additions.

Agreed, especially about Suh. If his college career is any indication, he will continue to prove to be a very valuable asset to the Lions.

With the Redskins defense ranked last this season, it'll be interesting to see if Detroit's offense can capitalize on it on Halloween. Combine that with Detroit's defense and perhaps they'll pull ahead for the W.

I'd like to see Stafford come back with a win.

I just checked the Vegas line.....Lions are favored this week.

Go figure.

Wow... I wouldn't have guessed that... What's the point spread?

I am a Redskins fan and would love to see a Redskin win obviously. With that said, I find the Lions very entertaining to watch and I believe they are a much better team than their record shows. Hopefully, the Redskins won't take them too lightly or they'll lose. Should be a fun game to watch. Cheers YAZ!

Unfortunately I won't be able to view the game in my market. Hope they do well.

Wow.

Punt after punt until halftime.....the Lions end up winning.

Suh is da man.....Stafford and Co. did well.

I like the D defense.....they never gave up.

Lions have the Jets at home Sunday.

Jets are favored right now by 3 1/2.

The Lions are 6-1 against the spread this year.

Interesting.

Mr. Sanchez, meet Mr. Suh.

Don't be surprised if this game goes into OT.

At least they're drafting what they actually need now. That's a start.

I hate Matt Millen.
I could never understand how a guy that bad could stay around that long. He must have had pictures on the owner or something.

There is an opportunity here if the Lions defense can make the Jet one-dimensional offensively with some good pass defense. If the Lions can play good pass defense and run the ball they can beat the Jets.

This team just needs to play with a little more consistency and clean up the penalties and turnovers and they have shown they can compete with anybody.

I give the Lions coaching staff credit in every game I've seen the Lions play this year they have played with effort.

Motown D has been putting pressure on QB's fairly well this season and the secondary is much better than I anticipated.

Lions need a running game.

Pronto.
