Unless the Falcons decide not to show up here is the first reason the Lions might have a rough day

A few key points to the game:

If you are handed a bat and you get only one swing... Aaron Rodgers and Clay Mathews are lined up; My heart says, Matthews to the groin but my head says Rodgers to the suck hole.

If you drew a special needs cartoon of Robert Duvall, you get a surprisingly life-like portrait of Terry Bradshaw.

If you make seven digits a year to play a game, you can sit or stand for the anthem as long as it is with a lit red, white, and blue sparkler tucked respectfully in your balloon knot while it whistles along, in tune.

well that was expected

Lions offense need to answer up.

Even though the Falcons looked pretty red hot, I can actually see the defense making a few adjustments to slow them down. They didn't look like a HS Defense playing a college offense.

Lions will need to answer with some points on this drive, can't have a 3 and out for the defense.

The Falcons made some nice plays on that drive. They know they're in for a game.

Go Lions!
