Ep: 384 – Arizona Cardinals Preview – Detroit Lions Podcast

Now’s the time! The Detroit Lions can exert their dominance over one of the top teams in the NFC in this week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at Ford Field. A fully healthy Lions team have been notching victories week by week in their march to the world championship, and Arizona looks to be just another casualty on the Lions way to NFL dominance.

Oh if that were more than just a dream. Instead the Lions are mired in the last quarter of the 2021 NFL season, decimated by injuries and dead cap to the tune of $113 million. Basically 2/3 of their cap is tied up in people who aren’t on the field for the team. Obviously its difficult to compete with the best in the NFL at 2/3 the cost of talent, but the Lions haven’t really been as bad as one would think – they have a slim shot against the Cardinals. Never count this team out, they have a ton of heart and put it all on the line for Coach Dan Campbell. As the team continues to build, grow, and establish their culture – this first season under coach Campbell and GM Brad Holmes has set the tone for good things to come. In the meantime, enjoy the football, find the bright spots, and grab yourself a cocktail. We only have a few week weeks of football left before we head to the long off-season of hopes, dreams and speculation.

We are joined (of course) by WWJ-Radio airtime superstar, Tony Ortiz, to break down what to expect in this match-up, and we’ll pick up some fun insider stories from TO along the way. We’ll cover some history between the teams, cover the Injury report for both teams, discuss match-ups, the Las Vegas odds and betting lines, and we’ll provide a final game prediction. This show is everything you need to get ready for game day with the Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals.

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.
