Six weeks ago, the Lions looked like a Super Bowl contender, and the Broncos were considered dead in the water. My how things can change during an NFL season. Now the Broncos are hot, and the Lions look like they are in the process of falling apart. This is a huge game for both teams, which should lead to a great matchup in Motown!
The Detroit Lions have lost two of their last three games and currently hold a two-game lead over the Vikings atop the NFC North with four contests remaining. A loss here would make things very interesting as Detroit recorded at 33-28 road win against Saints two weeks ago but lost last week against the Bears 28-13; they have covered just once of four meetings bin the last month!
Jared Goff has been inconsistent recently. Last week at Soldier Field, he only managed 161 passing yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, giving a 21:10 ratio between touchdowns and interceptions; also, Goff has thrown five interceptions over his last four games.
David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs have shared the ground duties, with Montgomery amassing 770 rushing yards at an average of 4.8 yards per rush and Gibbs being an exciting rookie, tallying 692 yards this season. Amon-Ra St. Brown has recently been held back from contributing, posting only 21 receiving yards last week. But with an inept pass defense coming into this matchup, he could rebound.
The Denver Broncos are on their third straight road game. Denver remains one of the hottest teams in the NFL, winning seven out of their last ten and sitting just outside of AFC wildcard contention despite an early road loss against the Houston Texans 22-19 and subsequent bounceback win against the Chargers 24-7.
Russell Wilson rebounded from a subpar performance against the Texans by throwing for 224 passing yards against the Chargers last week, his best performance in three consecutive games with under 230 passing yards, collecting 2609 passing yards with a 23:8 touchdown-to-interception ratio and adding 310 rushing yards on his season totals.
The Denver Broncos boast an effective running game led by Javonte Williams, who had 66 rushing yards last week, giving him 650 at an average of 3.8 yards per carry. Courtland Sutton only made eight receptions over his last three games but still amassed 699 receiving yards this season – while Denver scored 24 or fewer points four out of five times with four victories between those bouts.
This should be a great game. The Lions, and especially Jared Goff, play much better at home, and they desperately need this win to keep from totally falling apart and possibly losing their hold on this division. look for Jared Goff to have a huge game in this one. Lions 27 Broncos 20.
