On Sunday, the Detroit Lions were not able to build off of their Week 3 victory over the New England Patriots as they fell to the Dallas Cowboys 26-24 in Arlington, Texas.
With the loss, the Lions now sit at 1-3 with the Green Bay Packers next up on the schedule.
The Packers will come to Ford Field after easily defeating the Buffalo Bills 22-0 to move to 2-1-1 on the season.
According to the Westgate Superbook in Las Vegas, the Packers are currently a 1.5 point favorite over the Lions.
The Packers opened as a 1-point favorite but then it quickly moved to 1.5 within the first 17 minutes of being posted.
One thing is for sure, the Lions will be desperate for a win, but will that desperation be enough to take down the hated Packers?
Time will tell.
Detroit Red Wings will look much younger come Opening Night
The jokes about the median age of the roster of the Detroit Red Wings may soon come to a screeching halt, if the players waived, sent down, and released are any indicators.
We could see up to five new players make their NHL debuts on Thursday night when the Red Wings take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the season opener. The defense, thanks to multiple injuries, is a much bigger question mark, but coach Jeff Blashill has stated that forwards Michael Rasmussen and Christoffer Ehn will make their debuts for sure. Defenseman Dennis Cholowski is also slated to dress for the game.
On the back end, Mike Green (virus) will still not be ready to play, and there’s no current timetable on his return. Trevor Daley (lower body) is doubtful for the opener as he’s not even been skating with the team. Jonathan Ericsson (upper-body) and Niklas Kronwall both appeared to suffer setbacks on Sunday and more than likely will not take the ice on Thursday.
