Game 7 Colts at Lions

Recommended Posts

11/1 1PM   CBS

Colts 4-2  Lions 3-3

Colts coming off a bye

Colts injury report- Center Ryan Kelly no practice Thursday and is questionable.  No other reported injuries.

Lions injury report - Trufant, Peterson and Decker were all limited at practice as of Friday.  I believe Peterson and Decker are expected to play and Trufant is questionable

Last time I checked the Lions were giving 2.5 points.

 

As for my take, the Colts are a tough team to get a read on.  Yes they are 4-2 and statistically have one of the top defenses in the NFL but they have played garbage opponents.  Haven't played a single team in the top 15 in offense and 5 out of the 6 are in the bottom 3rd so it's hard to say how legit they are.  Still they are talented and are coming off a bye so this will be a test for the Lions.

Yeah definitely need to win this one.  They're probably going to need to go 5-1 or at the worst 4-2 in the next 6 to have a chance.  The final 4 games our brutal outside of Minnesota.  But if they can get to 8-4 or 7-5 they will have a chance.   With home field advantage meaning less this year teams like Tampa Bay may elect to rest some guys if they have a bye sewed up so maybe we'll get lucky when we face them.

Biggest Lions game in a few years.

I just have a horrible feeling the Swift Drop v the Bears will cost us the playoffs.

Lets get this win!

they called the penalty only after the two teams started shoving each other, and then they called danny shelton for unnecessary roughness after the play was over.

the ref waited until that far after the play to call shelton for throwing down rivers?  that's crap.

TBH, I think it was a good call. Shelton pulled Rivers over long after the whistle had blown. We mayor may not like it but in the NFL you let go of a QB when the whistle blows.

2 short passes over the middle with 30 seconds left? Really?

I guess they had decided to  play just for the FG, and the strategy fails anyway. 

If they can't figure out some adjustments for the O-Line this is over.

I don't want the Lions to win, but the ref changed the game with that bullspit call on Shelton. 

They only called it because Rivers threw a tantrum

Bevell is the worst OC going.  The insistence on the first down hand offs to Peterson is infuriating.

Bevell.  This all leads back to design.  The routes are awkward and there is no keeping them honest.  All run plays must be scripted up the middle dives to Peterson.
