Ep: 171 – Lions Look To The Cowboys – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case break down this week in Detroit Lions news. Game three saw a shocking turn around for the franchise and turned the pessimism surrounding the team on its head. We discuss the whether or not this was a fluke or a sign of things to come. Jeff Risdon of course joins us for his insight as well.

We start the Detroit Lions Podcast with more listener calls, this time in response to the Pats game. “Put ’em on Blast” had a record number of call ins, which we hope continues. These calls give voice to Lions fans, and we will continue to allow our listeners to put *anyone* on blast every week. You call (929) 33-Lions, we’ll put it on the air. Go ahead and vent, it’s the only way to clear the air.

The Detroit Lions Podcast Breaks Down The New England Patriots

From there we go into game review mode. Looking at how the win against the New England Patriots exceeded expectations. It wasn’t perfect, but it was damned near close, and we break down everything that went right for the team.

Credit goes out to guys like Theo Riddick, who has not always gotten the benefit of the doubt from us, and Kerryon Johnson. Big credit to Darius Slay, Quandre Diggs, and the rest of the secondary, who truly were the stars of the game as well. More praise is also due to Matt Patricia for a well called and well-played game.

A specific emphasis is put on the rest of the season and expectations for the team. We look at continued injury issues for upcoming opponents, both in the NFC North and league-wide.

On that topic, the Dallas Cowboys poor performance against the Seattle Seahawks is discussed. We also consider the effect of the loss of starting LB Lee as the team goes on the road to Dallas next week.

After all that, it’s time for Riz’s wisdom with Jeff Risdon on the Detroit Lions Podcast. He talks Lions offensive line, the reputation of the team around the league, and what the game against Dallas holds.
