Detroit Lions injury report: Injury designations released for Week 5 matchup vs. Patriots

The Detroit Lions injury report has been released for their Week 5 matchup against the New England Patriots, and as you are about to see, they will need some players to step up.

The Lions have put themselves in a hole by starting off the season with a 1-3 record, but they have a golden opportunity to get right back into the playoff picture with a win over the Patriots.

That being said, it is tough to deal with so many injuries to so many key players.

Will the Lions take down the Patriots on Sunday?

The defense has been so bad in 2022 that it is very hard to pick the Lions to win.

That being said, I am not ready to give my final score prediction quite yet (don’t worry, it’s coming), but I am leaning toward picking the Lions to win on Sunday against the Patriots.

Nation, do you think the Lions will take down the Patriots to move to 2-3 on the season?
