    We forced a field goal small victory at best.

    Yeah, they did stop them in the red zone and I will take a tie over a loss any day. I guess they stepped up enough to prevent a loss. It's also good in a season in which our team is so beat up and plagued with injuries, we still didn't lose to the Vikings at all. A win and a tie with no losses means we owned them even while we are beat down with injuries.

    If we made Ponder look good (70%) in the cold of Lambeau, and we even made Toby Gerhart look like Eddie Lacy, then I can't imagine the Lions not scoring at least 35 on us, and I think they could go for 50 if they try real hard.

    We have no CB's left and our safeties suck.

    Reggie Bush was held in check by us in week 5, but this is fast turf and our defense has gotten progressivley worse every week and that's a nightmare mismatch.

    Flynn will have to play his best to keep this close like 45-35 Lions.
    I can't see us winning with this pathetic defense. It's looking like the Lynn Dickey years almost right now on defense.

    Did you watch the game? A blocked punt and 5 giveaways by the offense, one of which was a pick-6, and the total score is 24 points. This isn't 1930, NFL defenses aren't supposed to give up 3 points per game. I'd say it was a good day by the defense, all things considered.

    But need to take care of their front line, so Flynn can pick on the secondary ( I believe their secondary is really bad)

    The secondary is indeed very bad. Just saying that last week it would be dumb to say they were a bad defense.

    Knowing Dom, he will have a Holiday Package all picked out, the game will start and he will realize by about the 2nd or 3rd quarter that the Lions had already unwrapped his package before the game even started, stuffing it in Dom's stocking next to the coal. Dom will then slowly put down his Turkey and stuffing and slowly wrap another package, as he gets ready to display it for Detroit's final 9:00 minute 4th quarter drive.

    Whatever happened to our "bend but don't break defense"?

    This one seems more like a "bend over and grab your ankles" defense.

    That also wasn't a start for him. And his first extended stint of regular season action too. As is the rule of thumb with statisticians, outliers are disregarded.

    Talking about first time in his career man. Wallace can't claim that. Also, I was never part of that pity party.

    Yeah, we have no clue what will happen.
    Can't base this or any games on past ones.
