On Sunday, the Detroit Lions will be in south Florida to take on the AFC East-leading Miami Dolphins. It is no secret that the Dolphins play much better at home than they do on the road and the Lions will have to bring their A-game if they want to come out victorious.
The hope is that Detroit gets a couple of their starters back in guard T.J. Lang and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah as both had a full practice on Friday. Those decisions likely will not be made until Sunday morning as both are listed as questionable on the Week 7 Injury Report.
Joining Lang and Ansah on the Injury Report is running back Theo Riddick who also happens to be the only Lions’ player already listed as ‘out’ for Sunday’s game.
The kitchen is warming up, but Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh is cooking up something tasty for the Spartans
Whether or not anyone wants to admit it, the kitchen in Ann Arbor is starting to get a bit warm for Michigan Jim Harbaugh.
Now in his fourth season as Wolverines’ head coach, Harbaugh has not yet lived up to what many hoped he would. After all, Michigan fans are obsessed with beating Ohio State and at a lower level, obsessed with beating the Michigan State Spartans. Unfortunately, at least for Wolverines’ Nation, Harbaugh has yet to get the job done in rivalry games as he is 0-3 against the Buckeyes and 1-2 vs. the Spartans.
To make matters worse, since returning home to Michigan, Harbaugh is 0-17 on the road against ranked teams and many of the Wolverines’ faithful have begun to question if he is the right man for the job.
This Saturday, Harbaugh will be able to take a step in the right direction when the No. 6 Wolverines invade East Lansing to take on No. 24 Michigan State. With a win, Michigan will not only earn a win over a rival (and a ranked opponent on the road) but they move to 7-1 with the hopes of a College Football Playoff berth still being attainable.
