The Morning Fix

There will be at least two TV blackouts among the NFL’s 13 games this weekend.

The San Diego Chargers announced that they will join the Detroit Lions with local TV blackouts on Sunday.

Despite their 1-5 record, the Detroit Lions are showing progress in a rebuilding process that has been long and difficult.

And they intend to stick with their plan, Coach Jim Schwartz said.

It’s difficult enough to draw up an effective defensive game plan against a quality NFL quarterback, but it’s even tougher when that plan must cover every possible contingency.

There’s probably a joke in here somewhere, what with the little guy dressed in black — the son of a mortician, no less — showing up on the Lions doorstep a couple months ago, ready to help resuscitate a team we’d all given last rites to long ago.
