When we last met: September 1, 2011 The Lions also concluded the 2011 preseason with a game against the Buffalo Bills and it is amazing how similar some of the issues this year are compared to last year. The punting battle was still up for grabs between Ryan Donahue and Nick Harris, as it is this year between Donahue and Ben Graham, the Lions had questions about depth at safety and running back and the first team offense was just ready to get on with the regular season. The Lions emerged from last year's finale relatively healthy, let's hope we can point to that as another similarity when tonight's game is over.
