If the Giants are going to run the ball, they’ll have to make sure to neutralize one of the most dominant interior defensive linemen in the league: Ndamukong Suh.
The last time the New York Giants visited Detroit, the G-men effectively ended the coaching era of Jim Schwartz by knocking the Lions out of NFL playoffs with a 23-20 overtime victory on December 22, 2013.
Here is a list of the dirtiest players of football history.
The Lions have taken more undisciplined penalties than any other team in football throughout Schwartz’s tenure. Whether it’s a motion or offside penalty before the snap or an unnecessary roughness or a late hit call after the play, Schwartz’s team never seems to learn.
For the third straight week, the Giants are playing an opponent who faces a must-win situation to either remain in playoff contention or while attempting to enhance its postseason seeding.
Fresh off their latest debacle, a 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at the Meadowlands, the New York Giants travel to Detroit for a matchup with playoff desperate Lions. Detroit is fighting it out with the Chicago Bears to secure first place in the competitive NFC north division, so the Lions cannot afford to take a win over the deflated Giants for granted.
Fixing the Pro Bowl voting system isn’t easy. But the league needs to straighten this out and start picking players who deserve it.
The left cleat of Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh connected with Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in his groin area.
Talk about a bad stretch for Mark Sanchez. The Jets quarterback fumbled away a chance to beat the Patriots, and was voted by his peers as the second-most overrated player in the NFL. But that’s not all.
The Green Bay Packers defeated the Detroit Lions 27-15 on Thanksgiving Day to improve to an undefeated 11-0 record.
Boomer & Craig were very pleased to welcome Lions star Ndamukong Suh to the program, as he called in just after 8 a.m.
It’s unanimous. And Tom Brady has outdone even himself. The record-setting Patriots quarterback was the leading vote-getter for The Associated Press 2010 NFL All-Pro Team.
On Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers saw their division title hopes take huge hits, and with wild-card aspirations farfetched, their chances of making the playoffs diminished, too.
Not only did the Lions lose the game, but now they have to face tough questions about whether their franchise quarterback can stay healthy.
At first it seemed like a fun novelty — 307-pound Ndamukong Suh lining up to kick an extra point for Detroit as the home crowd shouted his name.
