    Sounds like Dak Prescott wanted an opponent that would allow him to get back in a groove in his return from injury. The Lions could do just that. There’s something to be said about challenging yourself to do hard things, but when the easy option is right there, why not give that a go? As Dallas Cowboys quareterback Dak Prescott comes back from injury, it seems like he was looking for an easy game to get back in a groove and find his footing again. According to a report from ESPN’s Ed Werder, Prescott specifically chose the Detroit Lions to return against after missing the last 5 games due to injury. As Werder points out, he’s performed well against Detroit. Prescott is 3-0 against them with eight touchdowns and no interceptions across three games. He has a QBR of 126.2 vs Detroit. That has to be some extra motivation for the 1-4 Lions to hear that a recently-injured quarterback wants to get his first reps back in a game against you. It’s almost as if Dak is viewing this as...
    Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff isn’t expected to play Sunday against the Seahawks. Goff missed last week as he battled a knee injury and it sounds like it’ll keep him out for two straight weeks. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Jared Goff is still dealing with a knee injury suffered against Arizona. He said he’s day to day with it. — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) December 29, 2021 According to Ian Rapoport, head coach Dan Campbell told the media Friday that Goff is doubtful against Russell Wilson and company. That means Tim Boyle will get another start. #Lions coach Dan Campbell tells reporters that QB Jared Goff, dealing with a knee injury, is doubtful to play Sunday. Looks like Tim Boyle again. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 31, 2021 Honestly, at this point in the season, it’s had to get too torn up about Goff not being on the field. Obviously, I hope he heals up and gets better but it makes no difference. The more games the Lions lose, the better...
    Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff will reportedly start Thursday against the Bears. Goff has been dealing with an injury and Tim Boyle started last week during a loss to the Browns. However, it sounds like he’s back. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) According to Ian Rapoport, Goff will be back under center for the Thanksgiving game against Chicago. The #Lions are planning to start QB Jared Goff (oblique) tomorrow vs the #Bears, sources say, barring any setback overnight. Coach Dan Campbell said this was likely, and it is expected to be the case. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 25, 2021 Generally speaking, fans are excited when a starting quarterback returns to the lineup. That’s not the case at all when it comes to the Lions. When it comes to Detroit, Goff is so damn bad that the team is better off with him off the field. Was Tim Boyle any good? No, but it doesn’t get much worse than Goff. It’s painful watching him play football. An injury update from @jaredgoff16. pic.twitter.com/DjOtVUaAZT —...
    For those Chicago Bears fans hanging on through this 3-7 season because they at least can watch rookie quarterback Justin Fields’ growth, Sunday’s 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens was like taking a helmet to the gut. Fields missed most of the second half at Soldier Field after suffering injured ribs, and his status is in question for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. Bears coach Matt Nagy was typically evasive with his answers about Fields’ injury after the game. He said he didn’t know if Fields’ ribs are broken, whether the injury happened on one play or was a result of several hits or if there is a chance Fields could recover in time for the Thanksgiving game. “We’ve just got to see where Justin is at,” Nagy said. “When you’re talking about ribs, you’ve got to find out how much it affects him. We as a staff have to talk through all that.” Fields’ friend Simeon Kelley posted an Instagram video of Fields lying down after the game and said...
    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford dominated Sunday during a 28-19 win over the Lions. As a Lions fan, I think I can speak for every Detroit fan when I say watching Stafford take the field against his former squad wasn’t easy. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Los Angeles Rams (@rams) Stafford was the face of the franchise for more than a decade, and we then traded him this past offseason in return for Jared Goff and some draft picks. Ever since he landed with the Rams, he’s been dominating and Sunday wasn’t any different.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Los Angeles Rams (@rams) While Detroit put up a scrappy fight for most of the game, Stafford and the Rams proved to be too much as he threw for three touchdowns and 334 yards in the win for Los Angeles. I honestly can’t tell you all how happy I am that Stafford has found success...
    The Detroit Lions are very open to drafting a quarterback in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft. Right now, Jared Goff is the day one starter for the Lions after trading away Matthew Stafford, but nobody really wants to see him stick around. The good news is that Detroit is considering all options. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Jared Goff (@jaredgoff) According to ProFootballTalk, general manager Brad Holmes said the team is “absolutely not” out on taking a QB during an appearance on the “Huddle and Flow” podcast. Holmes elaborated with the following: I don’t think when you’re picking this high that you can be ‘out’ on any position. But obviously, quarterback is such an important position and I just think it’s good drafting business, always, to be very, very thorough on that quarterback class – regardless of what your situation is…It’s definitely not a position that will be ignored by us by any means. While I’m sure Goff...
    Rep. Ayanna Pressley: What do you do when your very existence is resistance? Ex-Congressman Max Rose says he won’t run for NYC mayor It sure looked like the Rams got away with an offsides penalty on pick-6 against the Cardinals Sunday’s Week 17 matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals had major playoff implications as the winner would lock up a postseason berth. And just for good measure: Both teams had to rely on backup quarterbacks to get them there. © Provided by For The Win An injured Jared Goff was ruled out ahead of Sunday’s game with John Wolford getting the start. Kyler Murray, who had been battling ankle issues, exited the game in the first half. He was replaced by backup Chris Streveler — a former CFL quarterback who is, uh, a downgrade from Murray. But man, Streveler didn’t get much help from the officiating crew on a crucial pick-six interception before halftime. Troy Hill takes it back 84 yards. @RamsNFL take the lead! #RamsHouse ????: #AZvsLAR on CBS ????: NFL app // Yahoo...
    The Detroit Lions will conclude our awful season Sunday against the Vikings. After a year of disaster after disaster, it’s finally time to put a bow on this season, and throw it right into the trash. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Detroit Lions (@detroitlionsnfl) I honestly don’t even care if we beat the Vikings. I don’t care one bit. If we win, then we win. If we lose, then we lose, which is probably the better situation for draft position. All I want is for this pathetic season to finally be over. It just needs to end.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Detroit Lions (@detroitlionsnfl) Life as a fan of the Detroit Lions is never easy. We know this from birth. It’s drilled into our brains that the Lions will always disappoint you. After this past season, it’s safe to say the Lions, once again, failed to accomplish anything other than firing Matt Patricia....
    It sounds like there’s a real chance Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford won’t play Sunday against the Vikings. Stafford is currently battling an ankle injury heading into the final regular season game. According to Ian Rapoport, interim head coach Darrell Bevell told the media that the team’s starting passer is 50/50 on playing Sunday. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) #Lions interim coach Darrell Bevell says QB Matthew Stafford won’t practice today. Sounds like he’s 50-50 whether he plays on his sprained ankle. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 30, 2020 The fact we’re even talking about potentially playing Stafford this Sunday is absolute insanity. The Lions are playing for nothing! Why are we even talking about playing Stafford? He’s the face of the franchise, and we’re thinking about playing him with a bum ankle in a meaningless game? Yeah, that’s going to be a hard pass from me.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Detroit Lions (@detroitlionsnfl) Running Stafford out onto the field while injured and having...
    Records were broken on Saturday. Multiple records. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 47-7 drubbing of the Detroit Lions secured the franchise its first playoff appearance in 13 years. Their last playoff outing came back in 2007. Along the way, one particular player set a few personal bests as well. That player being none other than the veteran quarterback Tom Brady.  The Buccaneers had their most dominant first half in franchise history. Going up 34-0, Brady posted 348 passing yards, his highest ever in the opening half of a game. The former Patriots quarterback also registered 4 touchdowns before sitting out the second half. Reflecting on his record-setting night, Brady addressed the challenges the Buccaneers will face going forward.  Job half done for Tom Brady & Co. Throughout his illustrious 21 year career, Tom Brady has maintained that it is his love for the sport, that drives him forward. Something which he reiterated while talking to the media on Saturday. “I love playing and I never want to let my teammates down. It’s been that way for 21 years of...
    The Detroit Lions might be missing a ton of coaches Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. According to Ian Rapoport, “almost all” of the team’s defensive coaches “are considered close contacts, while interim coach Darrell Bevell is, too.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Sources: The #Lions COVID-19 positives from yesterday left their coaching staff in a difficult situation. Almost all of their defensive staff members are considered close contacts, while interim coach Darrell Bevell is, too. DET is still determining who can coach this Saturday. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 23, 2020 The Lions shut down their facility Tuesday after a pair of positive coronavirus tests, and it now looks like the coaching staff is fixing to get hammered.

While several teams have had coronavirus issues, the Lions losing their coaches on one side of the ball feels uniquely Detroit. Even when dealing with a global pandemic,...
    Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford might miss the game against the Titans this upcoming Sunday. According to Jeremy Fowler, the Lions aren’t “overly optimistic” that Stafford will be available and ready to go against Tennessee as he battles a rib cartilage injury. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) No final decision has been made just yet on his availability for Sunday. #Lions QB Matthew Stafford suffered a rib cartilage injury, per source. Team not overly optimistic he can play vs. the #Titans but are leaving open possibility since Stafford often toughs out injuries. — Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) December 15, 2020 If there’s any chance that Stafford could make his injury worse, then the Lions should just sit him the rest of the season if it comes down to it. The man is the most valuable person in the franchise. You simply don’t play games with a guy like that. You do whatever it takes to protect him.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Detroit Lions (@detroitlionsnfl) Plus,...
    Detroit Lions quarterback is expected to be on the field Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. According to Tom Pelissero, Stafford has a partial ligament tear on his right thumb, but the Lions star passer is expected to start against Carolina.

They’ll take the week to see how he throws the ball. But Stafford is tough as they come and the expectation is he starts Sunday against the #Panthers. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 17, 2020 Fans of the Lions better hope like hell that Stafford is out there against the Panthers.

    Carolina Panthers superstar Christian McCaffrey isn’t expected to play Sunday against the Detroit Lions. According to Adam Schefter, the electric running back is “unlikely to play” against the Lions as he continues to deal with a shoulder issue. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Panthers’ RB Christian McCaffrey is unlikely to play Sunday against the Lions due to his shoulder injury and the team still is preparing got a multi-week absence, per source. So likely no McCaffrey and uncertainty about QB Teddy Bridgewater, too. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 16, 2020 It seems like there’s an above zero percent chance that McCaffrey is going to miss some substantial time. It’s really unfortunate for McCaffrey and the Panthers. He missed time earlier in the year, came back for one game and now he’s going to miss more.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Christian McCaffrey (@christianmccaffrey) Seeing as how McCaffrey is probably the best running back in all of football, it’s never a good thing when a guy...

On Wednesday, the team announced Cook has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his 200+ yard, two touchdown performance against the Detroit Lions. “With the performance, Cook joined Adrian Peterson and Ring of Honor member Chuck Foreman as the only players in team history to rush for 200 or more yards in a game,” the Vikings said in a release.

    Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

(RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Lions’ QB Matthew Stafford is considered a “high-risk, close contact” from a non team member, per source.
