A huge game for both teams as the Detroit Lions will head on the road to face the New Orleans Saints Sunday.
With both divisions extremely competitive at the moment, early wins are the most important. The Lions are trying to keep pace with the Packers, as the Saints with the Panthers/Falcons.
The Detroit Lions could not complete the comeback against the Carolina Panthers, as the Lions defense could not handle quarterback Cam Newton.
It was a field day for Newton as he totaled 355 passing yards a long with three touchdowns and a couple of solid runs. With an early 27-10 lead heading into the 4th quarter, it was too much for Stafford.
The veteran quarterback of the Lions finished the night with 229 passing yards, two touchdowns but was sacked six times which killed drives.
Detroit would score 14 in the 4th quarter, but Carolina hanged on for the win.
Another weak piece that has continue to be shown throughout the first few weeks is the lack of running game for Detroit. The Lions would finish the day with 50 rushing yards on 15 carries.
With it not working, Lions went pass heavy to finish off the game.
New Orleans Saints
What a turn around it has been for the New Orleans Saints as they were criticized for their lack of defense to start the season as they gave up an average of 32 points in the first two games.
Now New Orleans have changed up their defense as they are riding a two game winning streak with holding their opponents to an average of seven points.
The Offense is still on the gas pedal as they have scored at least 20 points in each of their games.
Can they continue their late push against the Detroit Lions.
With having a bye week before this matchup, it’s going to be interesting to see if the Saints are able to keep that momentum.
Hopefully it was not last in London where the New Orleans Saints are coming off a 20-0 win over the Miami Dolphins.
