Ep: 289 – New Orleans Saints Preview – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by world famous superstar Tony “TO” Ortiz, and Jeff “The Riz” Risdon to preview this week’s Lions game against the New Orleans Saints. A great show, and TO gets a little loose lipped with a Brandstatter story teaser and rumors of a picture of him in a Spider man costume… More to come on that!

The New Orleans Saints Injury Report Is Longer Than War & Peace

While the New Orleans Saints are the 4.5 point Vegas favorites, that could all change with the release of the New Orleans Saints Injury Report. Both starting cornerbacks (Marshon Lattimore and Janoris Jenkins), Jared Cook, Andrus Peat, Marcus Davenport, and Michael Thomas are all ‘out’ for the New Orleans Saints. If there was ever a game where Matthew Stafford should break free, find his groove, and open up, this one looks set up to be the one. Kenny Golladay with another week of healing puts him and Marvin Jones in their respective positions of strength, TJ Hockenson, Danny Amendola, and even Jesse James look poised to have a big day. If you’re looking for D’Andre Swift to have his first show out game, I’d expect it against the New Orleans Saints this Sunday. In other words, take the over.

Detroit Lions Podcast Talks Match-ups

Chris, Jeff, and Tony scout out their most important match-ups for the game and discuss keys to the Lions victory. Each of us found another key for the Lions to beat the New Orleans Saints after their strong showing against the Arizona Cardinals. We spend some time reviewing that game (which we all predicted wrong), and what it could mean if the Lions were to come out of this week with a 2-2 record. Boy would some heads explode if that were to happen… Predictions finish the show off, and you just might be surprised by what you hear.

Chris is the founder of everything you see here. A former radio presenter and Detroit native, he now resides in sunny California – and like so many of us, he found himself marooned on an island devoid of other Lions fans. After spending a few years in the Detroit Lions Reddit community he decided to start the Detroit Lions Podcast. Its become the #1 Detroit Lions podcast, and regularly ranks with the top podcasts in Detroit. With a mixture of pre-recorded shows, live & recorded phone-ins, and live post-game broadcasts - this is his slice of Honolulu Blue heaven.
