Detroit Lions announce 5 roster moves in advance of matchup vs. Patriots

This coming Sunday, the Detroit Lions will take on the New England Patriots. On Wednesday, the Lions announced four roster moves.

Following their embarrassing 48-45 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the Detroit Lions have put themselves in a very difficult position as they sit at 1-3 with a road matchup against the New England Patriots staring them straight in the face.

With a win, the Lions would move to 2-3 on the season and they would not be in bad shape as they head into their bye week. But with a loss, the Lions would drop to 1-4 and the chances of them getting into playoff contention would be slim to none.
