Scanning the Savanna

For the first time seemingly since their Portsmouth days, the Detroit Lions will enter a nationally-followed non-Thanksgiving game with high expectations to live up to. They’re taking their 3-0 record to Dallas to face Tony Romo’s Ribs and a Cowboy defense that is getting more potent by the week in Rob Ryan’s scheme.

The Detroit Lions suffered their first significant injury loss since the start of the regular season when special teams ace Isaiah Ekejiuba was placed on IR with a shoulder injury.

Coach Jim Schwartz said the loss is big both on and off the field.

Good news, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

Ndamukong Suh, the Detroit Lions’ dominating defensive tackle, says he isn’t pinpointing your broken right ribs as his hitting target in Sunday’s game.

And now the bad news for Romo.

Suh will hit Romo as hard as he can — and Suh wants to make up for losing the only two games he’s played at Cowboys Stadium.
