Let’s start with a cleansing exercise. To get rid of that emotion. “The Lions got screwed!” “The NFL is against ‘em!” That’s it. Let it out and give me some vein-popping emotion: “Everybody hates Detroit! It’s a conspiracy!” Feel better? I know, probably not. But take a deep breath and face the truth about the Detroit Lions: This team has been nothing but a tease.
New England and Detroit will join forces ahead of their preseason game.
As the least heralded member of the Detroit Lions’ 2016 offensive line draftees, Joe Dahl has yet to make an impact in the NFL. Some added pounds and a roster opening could change that.
The Detroit Lions opted to part ways with their top receiver last season. Can a veteran free agent come in this year and replace that sky-high production?
Golden Tate is bringing his show to Philadelphia. The Eagles acquired the 30-year-old wide receiver nicknamed "Showtime" from the Detroit Lions for a 2019 third-round draft pick on Tuesday. Tate has 44 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns this season.
Two weeks after being cut by the Baltimore Ravens, Justin Forsett has found a home in Detroit. Will the veteran running back be a boon for the Lions?
Detroit Lions running back Ameer Abdullah will miss at least the next eight games after the team placed him on injured reserve on Wednesday with a foot injury.
Foster and the Texans parted ways in March after seven years
New Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn just retained the head coach of a 2014 playoff team that lost seven of its first eight games in 2015—and he was right to do it.
Kam Chancellor got Calvin Johnson to fumble a potential go-ahead touchdown, and rather than scoop the ball up, K.J. Wright intentionally poked it out of bounds. According to the rulebook, that's a penalty. If the refs had called the penalty Wright committed, the Lions would've gotten the ball and a first down on the half-yard line. Instead, the Seahawks got the ball, and less than two minutes later, they won the game.
On Thursday night, the Detroit Lions got the 2015 NFL preseason off to a good start by pummeling the New York Jets, 23-3, at Ford Field. The starting offense only stayed on the field for one drive but things were clicking right away, with a 71-yard drive capped off by a 35-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Golden Tate.
With Suh's ordeal behind him, the Lions can finally focus on football rather than the drama. They begin preparations Wednesday afternoon when they hold their first practice of the week in Allen Park.
I do not envy Tom Lewand and Martin Mayhew's looming decision in the least.
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, during an appeal of his one-game suspension for twice stepping on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, said his feet were numb from the cold, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Wednesday.
Ndamukong Suh will have to pay a $70,000 fine instead of serving a one-game suspension for stepping on the calf and ankle of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.
Lions' No.1 run defense has tough job ahead against the Cowboy's No. 2 rushing offense.
Why a grown man can't stop stomping.
Ndamukong Suh, the best player on the Detroit Lions' No. 2-ranked defense, was suspended by the NFL on Monday. The suspension was appealed and Suh won his appeal (though he was still fined 70,000). Still, the ramifications of that decision could make the Lions — and other potential suitors — think long and hard before signing him to a long-term deal. Many in Detroit don't think Suh will return. The Detroit Free Press asked Tuesday, Is this good-bye? Suh might be done as a Lion. Could the Cowboys be interested this off-season? Dallas lost key defensive pass rushers DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher this past season and rank in the bottom of the league in sacks.
The Detroit Lions will have to play the Cowboys without their star defensive tackle. Ndamukong Suh has been suspended one game for stepping on the leg of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
It took 146 offensive snaps but the Lions finally scored a touchdown -- two, in fact -- thanks to Calvin Johnson.
