Detroit Lions 53-Man Roster Breakdown/Preview

Tom Greene | September 7th, 2019

The Detroit Lions are on the prowl. In Matt Patricia‘s second season as Head Coach, the squad is hoping to improve on their 6-10 record from last season. In their way stands a host of foes. Kyler Murray, Kirk Cousins, Derek Carr, and Aaron Rodgers, just to name a few. To take down these men and take on the challenge of winning the NFC North, you must have a sound 53-man roster. 6-10 tells me there’s a lot of work to do, and I’m sure it says the same to my fellow readers. However, let’s become familiar with the roster that will be with us for this 2019 season.

Chicago is in a good position to shake up the entire NFC with another year of Nagy and Trubisky leading the way.

It gives players, coaches and even the television crews to get some repetitions before the regular season. As much as practice helps, there isn’t anything that can replace game speed. As fans, we keep asking ourselves why we watch because it is a boring, bland style of football. In reality, there are a lot of reasons we watch.

Pranav Ramasubramanian | January 20th, 2019

The Los Angeles Rams come off a run-heavy game where they decided to let C.J. Anderson and Todd Gurley take over for a 30-22 win against the Cowboys to get to the NFC Championship game. It wasn’t as easy for the New Orleans Saints, who had to rally from down fourteen against Nick Foles and the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles to eke out a win on a last-minute interception just to host this NFC Championship Game. This game will kick off championship weekend and will be played at 3:05 ET on FOX.
