Detroit Lions 2015-2016 News and Updates
8/19/15 - The Detroit Lions have finally entered the preseason and they have won one game and lost one game. There is plenty of opportunity for them to learn from their mistakes and improve their performance for the upcoming season. First, the Lions hosted the New York Jets, where the Lions dominated with a 3-23 victory. Then the Lions travelled to Washington to take on the Redskins. There, the Lions fell just short with 17 points against the Redskins' 21. Next, the Lions will be travelling to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars on August 28th and finally they will return to their own field on September 3rd to face the Buffalo Bills. With tickets for their final home game starting at just $1, there is no reason for you to miss the match.
8/11/15 - Despite this week marking the first preseason game, the offensive line of the Detroit Lions remains a work in progress. The depth chart released on Monday shows where it will start, with Manny Ramirez at left guard and Larry Warford at right, Travis Swanson will be in the center, and Corneilius Lucas will be right tackle and Riley Reiff at left. However, Laken Tomlinson continues to battle with Ramirez for the left guard position. The Lions also signed CB Jocquel Skinner this week after sending TE David Ausberry to the injured reserve list. Ausberry is expected to sit out for the year, although the injury has yet to be disclosed. The Lions host the Jets for the preseason opener on August 13, and you can still get tickets for as little as $2.
8/7/15 - Former No. 5 pick Ezekiel Ansah is gearing up for the regular season with lofty goals in his sights. After coming close in 2014, the talented defensive end is focused on totaling double-digit sacks in 2015. Ansah racked up eight quarterback hits in his rookie season and 7.5 the year following, but he’ll look to step into the ranks of the NFL’s elite defenders with a 10-plus season. Standing 6-foot-5 and weighing in at 278 pounds, the former BYU standout is an imposing force—and amazingly, he only picked up football as a sport upon entering the United States in college. The regular season kicks off in September, but you can grab preseason tickets! The Detroit Lions take on the Jets on 8/13 and tickets are on sale for just a buck apiece!
7/28/15 - The Detroit Lions certainly have their work cut out for them as the season approaches. Many are saying the team is picking up the rear of the NFC North. The Lions did just sign on cornerback R.J. Stanford, so it is clear they are not done improving their lineup. Still, they have everything to prove. With the preseason opener being on August 13th, there are only a couple more weeks before fans get their first glimpse of how the Lions will perform this year. They will be hosting the New York Jets first. Tickets are still available starting as low as just $2. If you are excited to see if Detroit has what it takes to hold their own going forward, be sure to get your tickets now.
7/16/15 - When the Detroit Lions head to Training Camp the first week of August, fans will be looking closely at a few key positions. One battle that has hit social media is the backup quarterback position, with Kellen Moore and Dan Orlovsky battling it out to see who will be the go-to backup. The Lions had an interesting 2014 with their linebackers after several key players were injured, which led to Tahir Whitehead stepping up. With the healthy starters returning, many are wondering where Whitehead will end up, since he has emerged as a viable starter. Fans can already get tickets for the 2015 season to see if the Lions can finally make it to the Super Bowl. The first game will be at home against the Jets on August 13, with price starting at $1.
6/30/15 - The Detroit Lions made it to the playoffs last season for the first time in several years, but were unable to make it all the way.

Fans can already get their tickets to see the Lions live throughout the 2015 season, including the home opener on August 13 against the Jets. Prices start at just $2.
6/16/15 - The Detroit Lions held their mandatory three day offseason minicamp this week, and all three days were open to media, as opposed to the other minicamps with only one open media day. The roster is starting to form, and a few players have stood out during these camps. It seems that draft pick Ameer Abdullah may just see some playing time this fall, and another rookie, Quandre Diggs, has also stood out during the minicamps. After missing out on a successful post season last year, the Lions are looking to improve over the offseason. Wide receiver Golden Tate feels is optimistic about their chances this season after seeing the work at the camps.

6/2/15 - The Detroit Lions are busy preparing their team for the 2015 season.

The team has also recently announced is moving tackle Xavier Proctor from defense to offense. The team is looking for more people for their offensive line after LaAdrian Waddle tore his ACL.

5/18/15 - The Detroit Lions have been working year after year to build up a successful organization and are finally getting into post season play.

5/7/15 - After the new draft picks, the Detroit Lions' offensive lineup may have a new look for the 2015 season. The Lions have had difficulty with their offensive line over the lat few years, including making several changeups to the roster. During the first round of the draft, the Lions nabbed Laken Tomlinson, an All-American from Duke. He is expected to take over for Rob Sims in the left guard, most likely joining Riley Reiff, Trav9is Swanson, Larry Warford, and LaAdrian Waddle on the line. Another addition to their roster is Michael Burton, a fullback from Rutgers to help the team's running game. While the team prepares for the upcoming season, fans can already buy tickets. The first game will be in Washington against the Redskins on August 20, with prices starting at $9.
4/22/15 - With losses in each of their last eight postseason trips, the Detroit Lions are looking to go deep in 2015.

The schedule just gets tougher in Week 3, as Detroit hosts Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos before traveling to Seattle to go up against the Seahawks and the famed Legion of Boom.

12/30/14 - In their final game of the 2014 NFL regular play, the Detroit Lions just couldn’t get ahead of the Green Bay Packers.

Fortunately, the Lions will have Ndamukong Suh, who had his one-game suspension overturned, but they still face a stiff battle in the upcoming postseason game. Detroit’s offense finished the season 19th in yards and 22nd in points. Dallas has a great offensive lineup, but its defense only ranked 19th overall.

12/24/14 - The Detroit Lions are the only NFC team never to have gone to the Super Bowl. They have another chance this year, because they’re in the playoffs. This Sunday, Detroit travels to Green Bay to face the Packers. If Detroit wins, they have a bye in the opening week game and clinch the NFC North title. Detroit is facing a difficult situation with Dominic Raiola who has been suspended. This hurts Detroit’s offensive line, but they need to stay strong to take their first-ever NFC North Division title. You don’t want to wait to get your ticket to the playoff games that begin on January 3. Buy your tickets now to support the Lions and enjoy the camaraderie at the stadium on their road to the Super Bowl.
12/16/14 - The Detroit Lions are on a hot streak, with three wins in a row following their close victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday 16-14. The win brings their record to 10-4, and ranks them first in the NFC North. The Lions have emerged as a true contender in the NFL, a dark horse team that for many years wasn’t taken seriously.

The game is bound to be a lively one, so make sure to watch this match in person. With tickets still available and under $50, you can’t afford to miss it.
12/8/14 - The second team in the NFC South division is the Detroit Lions, sporting a 9-4 record. Their last game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went according to plan. They ended up winning with a final score of 34-17. A huge reason for their success on the offensive end was because of Mathew Stafford. He went on to throw for 311 yards and had 3 touchdowns. He found openings in the defense time and time again, and they will need him to keep up his impressive efforts. Joique Bell also had a great game, rushing for 83 yards with 1 touchdown. Up next for the Lions is a great game against the Minnesota Vikings. Tickets for the game next weekend can be bought right now, and you can get them for $46.
12/2/14 - The Detroit Lions suffered a lopsided defeat at the New England Patriots on November 23, losing 34-9, but bounced back the following Sunday to defeat the Chicago Bears at home 34-17.

The 8-4 Lions, in the thick of the playoff hunt, play at home for the next two weeks. First up is Tampa Bay on December 7, followed by the Minnesota Vikings on December 14.

11/24/14 - With a 7-3 record, the Detroit Lions are only slightly behind the rank of the New England Patriots, currently standing 8-2. That should make for an exciting match up this Sunday when the Lions take on the Patriots in New England. Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is a bruiser for Detroit, and along with linebacker DeAndre Levy, they are just a few key members of one of the NFL’s top-rated defenses. Heading the offense, quarterback Matthew Stafford along with running backs Reggie Bush (back after suffering an ankle injury) and Joique Bell are looking to improve the Lion’s running game. Tickets are still available for your chance to witness two of the highest ranked teams in the NFL battle it out at Gillette Stadium, with prices starting at $157.
11/19/14 - After a 4 game winning streak, the Detroit Lions suffered a frustrating loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The Lions are on the hunt for a redeeming win as they prepare to face the Patriots in Gillette Stadium. Currently 7-3, Detroit is slightly behind New England in the rankings, but both teams are currently in good standing with positions in the playoffs. Forcing a Patriots loss could allow Denver to shake up the AFC playoff situation in a hurry, and a win for Detroit could allow them to start closing in on Arizona once again. While so much is still uncertain in the NFL, what can’t be denied is how competitive Sunday’s game is sure to be. With two powerful teams facing off in New England, Lions fans can’t afford to miss out. Tickets are still available starting at $157 per seat.
11/11/14 - Going into their game against the Miami Dolphins, the Detroit Lions had a winning record of 6-2. The game was nothing short of exciting as the score stayed close the entire game. It all came down to one of the last plays of the game, with the Lions on the 11 yard, third down and 29 seconds remaining. After the snap, Matthew Stafford quickly scrambled out of the pocket and threw a deep end zone pass which was miraculously caught by Theo Riddick. This single play ended the game at a 20-16 win for the Detroit Lions. See if they can turn their four game winning streak into five when they compete against the Arizona Cardinals on November 16, 2014. Tickets for that game as still for sale, starting at $72.
11/4/14 - As the only NFC team never to have played in the Super Bowl, the Detroit Lions are having a great season after week 9. They are 1st in the NFC Northern Division with a 6-2 record. The Lions are on a three game winning streak after winning their last game against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons took an early lead, going into halftime at 21-0, but the Lions regrouped and came back to score 22 points in the second half of the game. Their defense kept the Falcons from scoring, which gave them the advantage. This week, the Lions face the Miami Dolphins at Ford Field in Detroit, MI. The Dolphins have taken the Lions in the last two seasons, so the Lions are looking to win. It should be a great game.
10/27/14 - They spotted their opponents, the Atlanta Falcons, a three-touchdown lead…then the Detroit Lions woke up. A Matt Prater field goal – his second attempt due to a penalty – as time expired gave the London fans who filled Wembley Stadium a memorable comeback for the Lions in a 22-21 win.

10/10/14 - The Detroit Lions are now 3-2 after blowing an initial 14-0 lead and ultimately losing to the Buffalo Bills in Week 5. The Lions offensive line struggled as Matthew Stafford was sacked six times during Sunday’s game. Newly acquired kicker Alex Henery also missed three field goals that could have won or tied the game. The final score was 17-14 as the Bills made a 58-yard field goal in the last few seconds. Since then, the Lions released Alex Henery and signed a new kicker, Matt Prater. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson aggravated an ankle injury at the Bills game, and will likely miss the next game as well. The Lions play in Minnesota against the Vikings on Sunday October 12, 2014 at TCF Bank Stadium.
9/16/14 - After an impressive season opener, the Detroit Lions were exposed in Week 2's 24-7 loss at the hands of the Carolina Panthers.

Preseason Game 4 will be the final test for many hoping to make the final 53-man roster; one such player is defensive tackle Nick Fairley, the only member of the 2011 draft class left in Detroit. Fellow defensive lineman, and last year’s No. 5 overall pick Ziggy Ansah, has been sidelined with a shoulder injury but may finally see some play time tomorrow.

8/12/14 – The Detroit Lions’ first preseason game is in the books, and while much of the attention was focused on their opponents (the Browns and their touted back-up quarterback), Motown’s rookie squad strutted their stuff too! Tight end Eric Ebron was not expected to play, but the rookie was thrust in and played well alongside fellow first year, linebacker Kyle Van Noy. Rookie kicker Nate Freese has been under the magnifying glass, but he drilled both field goals in the Lions’ 13-12 victory.

Score Detroit Lions tickets for as little as $3 when Motown hosts the Cleveland Browns at Ford Field (8/9).
7/29/14 – The Detroit Lions cut the ribbon on training camp yesterday, but the team made an announcement possibly more significant than the opening of practice. The franchise will table all contract discussions with Ndamukong Suh until after the 2014 season. The Lions' defensive tackle is entering the fifth and final year of his initial rookie contract, and the defense will hang in the balance until a long-term deal is reached next year. GM Martin Mayhew has made it clear the team is “shopping for everything” at all positions during training camp, but chiefly, the porous secondary. Score Detroit Lions tickets now and see if any new faces emerge in Motor City when the season starts!
7/22/14 – The Detroit Lions training camp has officially started—for the rookies, at least. Veteran players will enjoy a few more days of rest before having to report.

See if they can master Lombardi’s offense quickly enough to start in preseason Week 1.

7/15/14 – With training camp just around the corner, Detroit Lions fans are undoubtedly teeming with excitement for the season to start. But are they as amped as their new wide receiver Golden Tate?

7/9/14 – Detroit Lions fans, if you’re searching for the ideal sleeper pick on your fantasy roster, take some advice from your backup QB, Dan Orlovsky. Matt Stafford’s insurance policy believes Theo Riddick is primed for a breakout season with at least 50 catches, and compared him to the likes of Darren Sproles. This is all coming from Orlovsky observing Riddick’s impeccable offseason practices and the fact that he will “have eight passes a game. Walking away from the OTAs and minicamp, I don’t see him getting covered on more than one.” Buy Detroit Lions tickets for their first preseason game of the year and see how Riddick fares when the pads come on! Score Detroit Lions tickets for a cheap $2 minimum, Aug 9 at Ford Field.
7/1/14 – For Detroit Lions fans, it seems like the question on everyone’s’ mind always concerns the offense, but what about another vital side of the ball? The Lions have been working on their lower-ranked special teams unit this offseason by drafting kicker Nate Freese in 2014; he will compete with Giorgio Tavecchio for the starting job. Detroit should also amp up their 21st-ranked return yardage with a healthy Jeremy Ross for (presumably) the whole season. In other news, it looks like Joseph Fauria was practicing more than football drills in recent months. The tight end enthralled fans and teammates alike when he broke out into hilarious touchdown dances during his rookie season last year, and Fauria recently received a visit from N*Sync’s Lance Bass to teach him even more grooves. Are we in for touchdowns from Fauria too? Lock in Detroit Lions tickets today to see for yourself!
6/24/14 – Some great news came out of the Lions den this week. Detroit’s quarterback Matt Stafford and rookie tight end Eric Ebron plan on getting together over the next month for extra throwing practice, well before training camp opens on July 26. The 10th overall pick (projected No. 3 receiver) and star signal caller are eager to start “synching up” during summer break. Ndamukong Suh represented the Lions at the World Cup, when he extended his offseason absence on a trip to Brazil. He talked with ESPN’s Mike Tirico and expressed excitement on behalf of the team to have the Monday Night Football game-caller announce Detroit’s first match of the year. The Lions open up their season with a MNF showdown against the New York Giants at Ford Field. Get Detroit Lions tickets and attend their first game of the season (9/8) for as little as $52.
6/17/14 – At the close of the Detroit Lions’ minicamp last week, the franchise—with the least amount of cap space in the NFL—had yet to sign their first round pick. Tight end Eric Ebron was awaiting a sign, while the Lions were also trying to lock in key defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who will be entering the last year of his rookie contract. While there is no word yet on the DT’s status, the Lions have now secured the 10th overall selected player. Eager to become a productive part of the Detroit football family, the Lions intend to use Ebron similar to the way the Saints used TE-WR Jimmy Graham. Hopes are high for this young squad; see if they can take their ambitions to the top with Detroit Lions tickets!
6/10/14- Today the Detroit Lions open three-day mandatory minicamps. New receiver Golden Tate had one comment in regards to transitioning away from OTAs, simply put: "our intensity needs to stay turned up [because] it’s grind time.” One side of the ball that has certainly dialed it up thus far in the offseason is the defense, with the secondary making waves during OTAs. Fans are still waiting for one of the rookies, TE Eric Ebron or LB Kyle Van Noy perhaps, to make big statements during pre summer prep. Stay tuned and lock in your Detroit Lions tickets before both sides of the squad roar onto the gridiron for preseason!
6/3/14- Your Detroit Lions have been shaping up and slimming down this summer! The Lions organization has implemented a brand new nutrition program at team headquarters to get everyone's physique in tip-top shape. After Detroit decided not to pick up Nick Fairley's fifth-year option, the defensive tackle got motivated and is down 30 lbs., back to his college weight. He feels better than ever and looks forward to repeating his performances when his alma mater, Auburn, won the national championship. See this fit team hit the field with 2014 Detroit Lions tickets!
5/27/14- The Detroit Lions are coming off of a disappointing year, which means OTAs are especially integral in setting the foundation for a successful 2014 campaign. Their already explosive offense was capped off by the selection of probable tight end starter Eric Ebron. With new offensive coordinator, Joe Lombardi from the Saints manning the helm, RB Reggie Bush says the new-look Detroit system is “exactly the same” to his former team’s offense. The Lions also lacked a roaring secondary, with the worst ranking cornerback group in the league. That may change granted the maturation of Darius Slay, a presumed second-year starter who has shown much promise through the first rounds of OTAs—even when lined up against Calvin Johnson. From offense to defense, the Lions are getting more aggressive this year; score Detroit Lions tickets to see them unleash in 2014!
5/19/14 - A week after the 2014 draft wrapped up, the Detroit Lions signed five of their 8 picks, with more presumed to ink deals following the end of rookie minicamp. Among the signed are DE Larry Webster, kicker Nate Freese and tackle Caraun Reid. The organization will have to clear cap space before securing first through third round picks Eric Ebon, Kyle Van Noy and Travis Swanson. Lions fans: if you've been yearning for the return of Ndamukong Suh, your wait is over. After opting out of voluntary camps in the last month, the defensive tackle is expected to be present at OTAs later this week. Score Detroit Lions tickets and see Suh in his high-profile final contract year!
5/12/14 – With eight picks in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions added four defensive players – Larry Webster, Caraun Reid, Kyle Van Noy, and Levin Lawson – in addition to three offensive players in Eric Ebron, TJ Jones, and Travis Swanson. Kicker Nate Freese was the sole specialist drafted by Detroit. Veteran cornerback Chris Houston’s injury is a growing concern for the organization and the Lions addressed their secondary issue by drafting Lawson (Utah State). Since the Detroit Lions schedule was released, ticket prices have dropped 23 percent on the secondary market and 4 percent since the draft started.
4/17/14 - The Detroit Lions' new coach Jim Caldwell will open the squad's preseason schedule against familiar opponents, the Cleveland Browns. Detroit will host (former fan favorite) Nate Burleson and company in Week 1, followed by a road trip to the left coast at the Oakland Raiders in Week 2. The Lions return to Ford Field to host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3, and will conclude preseason at Buffalo, as per tradition. Detroit Lions tickets for their 34th preseason meeting against the Bills start at a mere $10 on Aug 28. Detroit was busy in the offseason, picking up Seahawks' offensive gem Golden Tate as a new option for Matthew Stafford, who is currently in training camp early to begin working with the team's new head coach.
The Lions, under new head coach Jim Caldwell, open the season on Monday Night football against the New York Giants before back-to-back games against playoff challengers Carolina Panthers and Green Bay Packers from last year. The September 8 opener marks the first time Detroit has opened in prime time on Monday night since 1971. We’ll see early if Matthew Stafford can find greater consistency with new receiver Golden Tate to reach the level of success the quarterback achieved in 2011. On Thanksgiving, the Lions will host division rival Chicago Bears in the most expensive game on the Detroit Lions schedule (avg. $260). With that, four of Detroit’s final five games will be played against NFC foes including the two road trips to Chicago and Green Bay to close the season. Detroit Lions tickets for games hosted at Ford Field are averaging $226, 73 percent less than Lions tickets last year at this time.
2/12/14 – There have been numerous coaching changes since the Lions finished their 7-9 season. New Lions coach Jim Caldwell began with the hiring of Ron Prince as an assistant head coach and tight ends coach. Joe Lombardi (Saints), grandson of Vince Lombardi, was hired as the Lions new offensive coordinator. In addition, Robert Prince will coach Detroit’s wide receivers, Tony Oden the defensive backs, and Matt Raich the linebackers. Of the NFL teams with new coaches, the Detroit Lions schedule in 2014 is the toughest; the new staff will however face an easier home schedule than away with Tampa Bay, Buffalo, Miami, New York Giants, and New Orleans at Ford Field.
12/17/13 - The Detroit Lion’s playoff hopes are hanging by a thread, after losing to the Baltimore Ravens 18-16 Monday night. The Lions were their own worst enemies in the loss, making critical mistakes: ill-timed penalties, Matt Stafford’s 3 interceptions, Megatron’s haphazard drops, and failing on a 2-point conversion that allowed Baltimore to kick a game-winning field goal from 61-yards. At third in the NFC North, Detroit must win their final two games and score some major help for a chance to enter playoffs. Detroit Lions tickets are $134 on average or $34 to get-in and see them clash against the New York Giants in a must-win game.
12/9/13 - The Detroit Lions lost some grip on their NFC North lead, after succumbing to the Philadelphia Eagles in 6 inches of snow on the Sunday matchup (20-34). Though Calvin Johnson became the all-time franchise leader in receiving yards, the Lions were unable to hold onto their first half lead and missed the opportunity to clinch the division title (again) with another fourth quarter meltdown. The conditions were tough, but with 7 fumbles, the game marked the Lions' fourth messy loss in five games, so Detroit will look to clean up their play before taking on the Baltimore Ravens next Monday. Detroit Lions tickets are moderately priced at $123, be there to see if the Lions can put a stranglehold on the division and snuff out the Ravens’ playoff hopes for good.
12/2/13 - The Detroit Lions are the kings of the north after a crushing 40-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers Thanksgiving morning. QB Matt Stafford had a banner day: throwing over 300 yards and 3 TDs, carrying his team over four turnovers for the win. Other difference-makers, Reggie Bush racked up 182 yards, Joique Bell garnered 94, while Megatron caught 6 passes for 100 yards and a TD. The leaders in the NFC North are going strong and will look to widen the gap when they travel to Philadelphia to meet the Eagles. Detroit Lions tickets boast the second highest minimum price, starting at $67.
11/25/13 - The Detroit Lions suffered a tough loss by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (24-21), giving the Lions their second straight loss, and the Bucs' third consecutive win. The Lions committed 5 turnovers and Matt Stafford was intercepted four times, including the final game-winning touchdown pass opportunity that was picked right out of Calvin Johnson's hands. Detroit missed the opportunity to gain some much-needed distance in their NFC North lead, a feat they will try to accomplish next week when they meet division rivals, the Green Bay Packers, on Thanksgiving Day. Detroit Lions tickets for the annual Turkey day showdown start at $108 and average at $190.
11/19/13- The Detroit Lions fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, 27-37, and now share the lead in the NFC North with the Chicago Bears. After scoring all of their points in the first half, the Steel Curtain shut out Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson in the second. In the 4th quarter, the Lions did not execute a fake field goal play, a costly game-changer, as the Steelers maximized on the momentum shift, and scored in following minutes. The Lions will look to brush off the wild game and disheartening loss before meeting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Detroit Lions tickets have one of the higher get-in prices of the week, at $43, as they fight to regain control in the North.
11/12/13 - The Lions achieved a statement victory over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday (21-19), propelling Detroit to the top of the NFC North. The Lions’ defensive front maximized on Jay Cutler’s premature return and helped the team sweep the rivalry series for the first time since ’07. Calvin Johnson was as remarkable as usual, this time, breaking Herman Moore’s record for most TD receptions in franchise history, with 63. The Lions won another close game with their offensive weapons and gritty defense—one that is getting a reputation for playing dirty. To see some hard-hits in Week 11 check out Detroit when they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers and give Ben Roethlisberger the run-around. Tickets are $32 to get in and $156 on average.
11/5/13 - The Detroit Lions will be coming out of their bye with high spirits following their one-point win over the Dallas Cowboys last week, but with the recent Monday night win of the Chicago Bears over the Green Bay Packers, the Lions will be more focused than ever. The NFC North just got a whole lot more interesting after Week 9: the Lions are now tied with the Bears for the top spot, with Green Bay close behind—all with a 5-3 record on the season. Matthew Stafford is the only starting QB left in the entire NFC North, with Jay Cutler, Aaron Rogers, and the woeful situation in Minnesota permeating an injury-laden division. For next Sunday, the Lions will trek to Chicago to play the Bears in what is sure to be an intense game. Detroit Lions tickets at Chicago Bears are some of the most in-demand of the week, at $323 on average.
10/28/13 - The Detroit Lions were caught in another close game, but were able to pull off a victory in dramatic fashion against the Dallas Cowboys, 31-30. Calvin Johnson is the star of Week 8, after leaving everyone speechless (though Dez Bryant looked pretty irate) with 14 receptions, one touchdown and a show stopping 329 receiving yards in a single game, just 8-yards short of breaking the all-time NFL record. Also playing at an extraordinary level was Matthew Stafford, who stunned all (including his teammates) when he made a spontaneous fake-strike play, and successfully broke the plane over a scourge of linemen, scoring a touchdown in the last 12 seconds of the game. Stafford played his second best game, and finished 33 of 48 for a huge 488 yards and 2 interceptions. The Lions were able to overcome four turnovers for the crucial win, and are neck and neck with the Green Bay Packers, to sit atop the NFC North. They will take the opportunity to advance when they come back off their bye week to face the Jake Cutler-less Chicago Bears (Nov 10).
10/22/13 - The Cincinnati Bengals stole victory from the Detroit Lions in a hard fought game, resulting in a down-to-the-wire 24-27 loss. It was a high scoring offensive game from both teams: the Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson duo seemed unstoppable, but Bengal's Andy Dalton and AJ Green played a nearly identical game: Dalton threw for 372 yards and 3 TDs to Stafford’s 357 yards and 3 TDs, while Johnson and Green both finished 155 yards receiving—the two elite receivers even exchanged jerseys after the game. Thus, it was fitting for this close game to end with a decisive special teams performance, and the Lions fell to kicker Mike Nugent's clutch kick. Despite the loss, Megatron gleamed in Sunday’s game, besting triple coverage at times, catching nine passes and two TDs, one being a game-tying 50-yard pass from Stafford in the second half. Next Sunday, the Detroit Lions will meet formidable opponents, the Dallas Cowboys, and Calvin Johnson will go head to head against younger wide out Dez Bryant in another battle of top receivers in Week 9. Detroit Lions tickets at Ford Field are averaging $162.
10/15/13 - The Detroit Lions shut down home-team the Cleveland Browns 31-17 on Sunday. The Lions now find themselves at the top of the NFC North, tied with conference opponents the Chicago Bears, and just above Green Bay. While Detroit was delighted to have Megatron back from his injury, Calvin Johnson had a dreary game, dropping two balls and playing an otherwise quiet return game, perhaps needing more time to rest his knee. Highlights of the game came from Reggie Bush, who masterfully achieved 78 rushing and 57 receiving yards, and quarterback Matthew Stafford, who has found a favorite new target in Joseph Fauria, with 24 unanswered points in the second half. Rookie tight end Fauria came up with a hat trick on Sunday, catching 3 - 3 Stafford passes for three touchdowns, dancing his way into the hearts of Detroit fans. The Lions will ride this momentum back home at Ford Field on Sunday when they face off against the Cincinnati Bengals on October 20. Detroit Lions tickets start at $50 and average $114.
10/8/13 - The Detroit Lions lost 9-22 to Green Bay on Sunday, securing their losing streak at Lambeau Field, where they have yet to overcome the Packers since 1991. The Lions showed their weakness without “Megatron” Calvin Johnson, who was out with a knee injury, scoring their only touchdown of the day in the last two minutes of the game. Quarterback Matthew Stafford was sacked five times, all-star running back Reggie Bush was limited to 13 carries and just 44 yards, and the defense gave up 449 yards to Green Bay, allowing rookie Packer Eddie Lacy to gain 99 yards. The Detroit Lions are still on top of the NFC North, tied with the Chicago Bears, but they will try and improve their 3-2 record when they play the Cleveland Browns at Ohio. Detroit Lions tickets on the road this week are among the lower priced games of the week, at $49 to get in and $140 on average.
10/1/13 - With an explosive performance by running back Reggie Bush, the Detroit Lions snuffed the Chicago Bears on Sunday, 40-32. Now 3-1, Detroit will square off against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, who have won 22 consecutive games over Detroit at home. Detroit made a great showing from all facets of the team. Reggie Bush had a touchdown and 173 yards after 22 touches, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh had two sacks and a forced fumble, and Matthew Stafford threw for 22 yards and one touchdown. Detroit Lions tickets for their Sunday, October 6 match against the Packers are the second highest priced tickets of Week 5, averaging $421 with $136 being the cheapest seat.
9/24/13 - The Detroit Lions will play their NFC North rival, the undefeated Chicago Bears, for what is sure to be an exciting game as Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson’s bro-mance on the field is extremely prolific; last game, the two completed seven passes for 115 yards. Although there is promising word that Reggie Bush will come back to play against the Chicago Bears in Week 4, Detroit is desperate for a wide receiver to accompany Johnson after Nate Burleson was involved in a single-car accident which left him with a broken arm. Detroit’s defense, including defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, are known for their aggressive play, which results in penalty after penalty, a problem they will need to clean up as the Lions and Bears duke it out for first place in the north.
Despite having a losing season last year, there are a few reasons to believe that the Detroit Lions have a chance at making the NFL Playoffs this season. Number one, the signing of RB Reggie Bush whose speed could literally be compared to that of a lion. Two, Matthew Stafford whom Bush says reminds him of Saints quarterback Drew Brees, referring to his talent, leadership and vocality. And third, Calvin Johnson who was voted one of the top 10 best players in the NFL by his peers. The Detroit Lions roster is stacked with individual talent. The question is, can the coaching staff manage team chemistry and get the most out of their team’s talent.
