Ep: 288 – Lions On To New Orleans Saints – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case take you through the Lions first win of the season against the Arizona Cardinals, look ahead to the New Orleans Saints, and a whole lot more.

Detroit Lions Podcast Puts The Arizona Cardinals Game Under Further Review

The Detroit Lions played a great game against the Arizona Cardinals. The defense stepped up like it hasn’t so far in 2020, and it looked very good doing it. Chris debunks the narrative that the Lions didn’t win the game and that Kyler Murray lost it, with some help from Ash Thompson. The Lions stepped up in all three phases of the game to take that one away from the Arizona Cardinals, and are looking to do it again next week against the New Orleans Saints.

The guys also discuss the lowering difficulty of the schedule after the bye week and what it could mean for the team’s performance on the year. Also, what it might mean insofar as the team keeping Matt Patricia as coach. There are many layers to this, and we start to work with some of them on what will certainly be a multi-week conversation.

On To The New Orleans Saints

This is where the Lions get their chance to show that they are truly heading in the right direction – Sunday afternoon at Ford Field against the New Orleans Saints. The Lions will definitely have to take the next step as a team, the offense and ball control is likely going to be key again against the New Orleans Saints. Alvin Kamara is going to be difficult to stop, and Drew Brees might be old, but no one thinks he’s washed up.  The New Orleans Saints are coming off of two tough weeks of football and likely expect to roll over the Lions. This game is a statement game for Detroit – how they play against the New Orleans Saints this week may very well define their season.

With a mixture of pre-recorded shows, live & recorded phone-ins, and live post-game broadcasts - this is his slice of Honolulu Blue heaven.
