Let’s face it, at this point everybody would rather just put the Detroit Lions Week 1 tie (loss) behind us and move on to their Week 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.
When the Lions run out onto Ford Field this coming Sunday, they will be facing as close to a must-win game as you can get at this point of the season.
With a loss to the Chargers, coupled with the grueling schedule over the next few weeks, the Lions absolutely must figure out a way to claw out a victory at home.
There were certainly some bright spots during the Lions tie vs. the Cardinals but there were also some players who did not play up to their billing.
Here are 3 players who MUST bounce back in Week 2 if the Lions are going to beat the Chargers.
(Listed in reverse order of importance)
*Note: This list does not include the Lions’ coaching staff, who was a HUGE reason why the Lions tied the Cardinals in Week 1.
