No matter how bad things have gotten for the Lions this season, I never believed they could run the table and go a full regular season without registering one single W. No matter how many injuries, no matter how many horrible calls by referees at the most important junctures of games, it is simply too much for an NFL team to lose all 16 games in a season. Even the Lions. And as Lions fans, we all know there is a 0.00 percent chance that the boys in Honolulu Blue can get a win in Lambeau the last week of the year. The game in 10 hours against the New Orleans Saints is the last chance in 2008 for the Lions to get a victory. And they're going to do it. The last time the Saints won a big game, it was in the 2000 playoffs when they knocked off the defending champion Rams in a home playoff game. They simply are not prepared for the kind of atmosphere that is waiting for them at Ford Field later today. After being eliminated from NFC playoff contention with their loss last week, and slumping in with a 1 and 6 record on the road, all signs point to the Lions shocking the world. Dan Orlovsky will throw a couple touchdowns...Kevin Smith will rumble in for a score...Calvin will be Calvin...and the D will make a few big plays. This Detroit Lions team is most definitely not good...but they are due.
Detroit Lions 31
New Orleans Saints 27
You can call the Lions a lot of things...but after today, "winless" will not be one of them.
1-14 might be a sick record for an NFL team, but for Baron Davis, it's a normal night from the field... E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
