The Detroit Lions took too long to figure their stuff out. They’re playing extremely well, but it’s too late as every win is just for momentum into next season now.
They’ll look for another morale building win as they welcome in the San Francisco 49ers into Detroit on Sunday.
Detroit comes in off a Monday night win over New Orleans, while the 49ers suffered a blow to Cincinnati by 10 in Cincinnati on Sunday.
The 49ers have now dropped 4 of their last 5 and suffered their 2nd straight loss after falling to the Bengals 24-14 on Sunday.
This season has been a horrid one for this San Francisco team, who is now using Blaine Gabbert as their QB. Gabbert did play one of his best games as a starter as he finished 30 of 50 for 295 yards and added a touchdown. He also added 3 costly interceptions that gave the Bengals short fields.
They’ll have backup RB Travaris Cadet in the #1 spot on Sunday after Shaun Draughn injured his knee in Sunday’s loss. Cadet had just 36 total yards on Sunday and will certainly need more if the 49ers hope to pull out an outright road win here.
The road has not been kind to this 49ers team either this season. They are just 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS. They’re getting double in terms of points allowed vs. scored as they are putting up just 15.3 and allowing 31.4 against.
The Lions had extremely high expectations heading into this season with Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson leading the way.
Their embarrassing winless start led to their downfall this season as they have finally awoken, much too late. The Lions one again on Monday thanks to that same duo as they went into New Orleans and held on for a 35-27 win.
Stafford finished a near flawless 22 of 25 for 254 yards and added 3 touchdowns to his credit. Stafford finished with a passer rating of 148.6.
Since the change in coordinators, Stafford has really shined under center. He’s thrown 14 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions since the change in guard.
For really the first time all season, RBs Ameer Abdullah and Joique Bell finally showed some promise. The duo rushed for 148 yards and added 2 touchdowns for the Lions. Look for them to get another heavy dosage come Sunday.
