Ep: 286 – Arizona Cardinals Preview – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Jeff Risdon and Tony “TO” Ortiz to preview this week’s Lions game against the Arizona Cardinals. As always we have a great show with insights you won’t get anywhere else!

Arizona Cardinals Are The Favorites

Here we are at game three of a season in which the Lions desperately need a win. They’ve had a tough schedule so far, and that difficulty level isn’t easing up. The Arizona Cardinals and Kyler Murry aren’t going to make things much easier for the hapless Lions. The one thing the Lions have in their favor is that Arizona has the weakest defense the Lions have seen in the season so far – that’s something the Lions look to exploit. The Lions are going to need to put a lot of points on the board, and are hoping to see the Matthew Stafford of early 2019 on the field against the Arizona Cardinals, not the one who we’ve seen in 2020. We’ll talk about why there’s hope that this just might be the case.

Detroit Lions Podcast Talks Defense

This is likely to be a tough test for rookie Lions cornerback Jeff Okudah as he’s likely to face off against the timeless Larry Fitzgerald, a wily vet who has the talent of a man many years younger. This is going to be a key match-up for the Lions, as is the defensive line. Kenyan Drake is always a threat, and Kyler Murray can run like no other. The Lions are going to need to take the ball away from the Arizona Cardinals, likely more than once, if they have any hope to win the game.

We’ll share our predictions, the Detroit Lions Podcast “Meaningful Games In Decemb-o-mometer” makes its first appearance, Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals Injury Reports, and a whole lot more jam this info-packed show.
