On Sunday, the Detroit Lions survived the south Florida heat on way to a dominating 32-21 win over the Miami Dolphins.
With the win, the Lions have now climbed to 3-3 on the season and they are clearly in the mix in the NFC North, especially with the Chicago Bears losing at home to the New England Patriots.
Up next of the Lions is a home game against the Seattle Seahawks, who will be coming to the Motor City after enjoying their bye week.
According to the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, the Lions have opened as a 2.5 point favorite over the Seahawks.
Nation, what do you think? Will the Lions keep rolling or will Seattle be rested and ready to steal one on the road?
The pride came before the fall for Mark Dantonio’s Spartans in 21-7 loss to Michigan
Mark Dantonio is the master of using bulletin board material to help motivate his football team. In fact, I would be willing to bet he had a plethora of material that he presented to his team prior to their matchup on Saturday against their biggest rival, the Michigan Wolverines. One of his goals is to convince his players (and probably himself) that they are being unrightfully disrespected by their opponents on a weekly basis.
Who can blame Dantonio for using this strategy? After all, he has won multiple Big 10 titles, beat Michigan in 8 of the past 10 matchups heading into Saturday, and he even found a way to get the Spartans to a College Football Playoff.
But on Saturday, Dantonio made a huge mistake and his team would end up paying for it in a big way.
You see, during warmups, the Spartans were reportedly about 10 minutes late coming out onto the field. When the finally arrived, some of the Michigan players were already going through some of their own warmups around midfield.
This is when Spartans players got in a line and locked arms before beginning their 100-yard walk across the field. While they did this, Dantonio walked about five yards behind them.
