Despite suffering an embarrassing loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Lions are still sitting atop the NFC North and in fact are still clinging to the 3rd seed in the NFC.  This week’s matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is important not only because the Lions need to bounce back and show they can win, but because it is an NFC opponent meaning the playoff implications are much bigger.

There are plenty of upfront matchups to look at, most notably the league’s best receiver going against its best cornerback, so there’s no need for me to hash those out here.  Another thing I’ll mention and then move on is how the Lions have to handle this game mentally, I don’t think we need to go into detail about how damaging a loss at this point in the season at home to a conference opponent can be.  So skipping over the obvious, we’ll jump right the under the radar match ups in this week’s make or break game!

Perception vs. Reality: How the Nation Sees the Lions

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Houston fans perceive the Lions differently than most, and Glover Quin is a big part of the reason why

Jeff Risdon

I’ve spent most of the last two weeks relocating from my 3-year sojourn in Houston back to the Grand Rapids area. Along the way I’ve stopped in New Orleans, Nashville, Louisville, and Indianapolis after also spending a couple of recent weekends in Dallas. As I am almost always wearing a Lions hat, I am privy to a lot of unsolicited opinions about our beloved team. And there is a real discernible difference between how Lions fans see the team and how “outsiders” perceive both Detroit and the Lions. (more…)

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor
 
Official Team Activities, more commonly known as OTAs, begin today for the Lions. This is the first time where the offense and defense get to face off in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills, though contact is still prohibited. Also, these sessions are not mandatory per the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
