Lions Surprise Us All

Suffering through the 3 weeks of Stafford wearing that silly glove and throwing 9 INTs while only throwing 5 in the rest of his games combined, we see a whole new Lions team against San Diego last week. By far the best game they and Stafford played all year. At the perfect time.

Stafford went from throwing the 9 INTs to throwing 9 TDs and 0 INTs in the 3 crucial wins that clinched a playoff birth for the first time in 12 years. Now already in the playoffs they don't have time to look at free dating sites, but need to look at trying to win that 5th seed and avoiding New Orleans in the first round.

A Lions win on New Year's Day, or an Atlanta loss clinches the 5th seed and gives them the AFC East winner. Playing in Green Bay it is going to be a tough task. GB has nothing to play for at 13-1 so they may rest a lot of guys and the Lions could steal one. 11-5 could be in the mix. They play like they did against San Diego they can beat anyone.
