Tough day at the office…disappointed yes…but a wounded Lion will fight to the death…lions fans you were great at #FordField #ATLupNEXT

I will never get use to how losing feels! We didn’t eat today so the LIONS will be extremely HUNGRY next week! Can’t wait… #LIONBLOOD

That’s a tough one to take. We’re still 5-1 guys. I’ll be out there next week with some of my former teammates.

    Next week’s game is no walk in the park. But I think for all Detroit players and fans it will be a lot easier heading into the bye week with a win than it will be with a loss. Lions need to think positive and KNOW that they CAN beat the Falcons. GO LIONS!
