The Lions head to St. Louis to visit an old friend in week 14.

It’s unclear what Nick Fairley’s role will be in St. Louis in 2015. The former Lion registered exactly one tackle in the preseason and did not appear to be a starter in any of them. The Ram’s defense was expected to be very good this in 2015. But St. Louis has yet to show up on that side of the ball as they ranked 27th in points allowed per game. Perhaps another question that all Lions fans will understand, Will Fairley be healthy by this game?

The Rams offense did them no favors as they are tied with the Dallas Cowboys at 31 with the least amount of points per game. The Lions should be able to win this game handedly. But like Oakland, the Lions must be weary of the trap game. Win (9-4)
