From Detroit Lions:
“The Detroit Lions announced today that they have been awarded CB Lenzy Pipkins via waivers from the Indianapolis Colts. In addition, the Lions released LB Marquis Flowers.
Pipkins spent time on the Colts’ practice squad and active roster earlier this season, appearing in one game and totaling nine tackles (six solo). He entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 2017 out of Oklahoma State.
In 13 career games (two starts), Pipkins has totaled 23 total tackles (17 solo), one TFL and one pass defense.”
In five games for the Lions this season, Flowers had recorded one tackle.
Detroit Lions game-by-game predictions for the remainder of season
Well, our Detroit Lions are doing it to us again! After beating the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, the Lions are now 2-3 and in striking distance in the NFC North. In fact, there are just four teams in the entire NFC that have more wins than Detroit. (Yes, we know there are 10 teams actually ahead of the Lions in the NFC standings)
Anyways, as fans, we now have a little bit of hope. The Lions have proven they can beat solid teams and if they can just get their crap together, they could make a run at the NFL Playoffs. The question is, will they get their crap together or will they break our hearts yet again?
Let’s take a look at my game-by-game predictions for the remainder of the season.
WEEK 6 – BYE WEEK
(W) WEEK 7 – @ Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins may be 3-2, but they are not a good football team. Even though this game is on the road, the Lions will be well-rested and will find a way to win to move to 3-3 on the season.
Lions 26 Dolphins 23
