Scanning the Savanna: Detroit Lions Game Day Edition

The Dallas Cowboys’ final injury report has been released and there were surprising revelations on the list. QB Tony Romo has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s early match-up with the Detroit Lions in Arlington. Romo was able to practice on a limited basis this week, but attended all the sessions. Although, it’s not a big surprise, it’s unfortunate that he wasn’t given a “probable” tag instead.

The offensive plan on any given football play is to gain yards. The defense is geared to do one thing, and that’s to prevent those yards from being gained.

From that perspective, two of the NFL’s best teams meet in Arlington on Sunday afternoon, including the league’s best, which is, of course, the Cowboys.

… Say what?

Sadly enough, Tony Scheffler did not find the endzone in Minnesota. The world will never see this celebration (at least until week 14, round 2 against the Vikings), but by the magic of twitter, we do know what it would have been.
Lions QB Matthew Stafford sits down with Steve Mariucci to talk about what it means to him to play his childhood dream team this Sunday. Catch the whole interview on GameDay Morning this Sunday at 9am ET.

The Detroit Lions’ season hinges on this game. This week and next are two tough tests before a nice stretch of winnable games. However, with the Lions’ back-half schedule it’s conceivable the Lions could be 7-3 heading into Thanksgiving and miss the playoffs.
