In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Detroit Lions subreddit moderator, Punk Rawkin’ Trev. We fire the studio up discuss the Lions home win over the New York Giants and take your calls. This was a game the Lions were expected to win, though the New York Giants were able to field their entire offense for the first time this season. That offense included Lions fan favorite Golden Tate – he definitely gets some talk time. This was a solid win for the Lions, but it still left fans with some questions.
Detroit Lions Podcast Calls This A Foundational Win
Even though the Lions were projected to win, Lions fans know every game has its opportunities for disappointment. The Giants were able to make it seem like a game during garbage time when they came within 5 points of the Lions. They chose the inevitable onside kick, but luckily the Lions played it perfectly and the ball rolled out of bounds. Nothing like ending the game in the victory formation. This win brings the Lions record to 3-3-1 with a number of winnable games ahead.
In a return to our happy place, The Detroit Lions Podcast doesn’t need to provide a therapy session after this week’s game! There are still plenty of things to take away from this game that the team needs to work on, but for the most part, the team quieted doubters in the short term. As is always the case, we take your calls and discuss the team’s performance in today’s game. We are also asked to think about the team in a broader perspective by a few callers – well worth the listen. It’s a big show, with a lot to discuss, and the next few games will define this team.
