Playoff Dream Alive: Victory A Must

Lions look to topple Manning and The New York Giants.

Lions look to topple Manning and The New York Giants.

The entire Detroit Lions season will come down to the next few weeks. The Detroit Lions play host to the New York Giants Sunday afternoon at Ford Field in Detroit. The Lions; coming off a heartbreaking loss at home Monday night to the Baltimore Ravens, in which the Lions struggled on the offensive side of the ball. One of the keys that was outlined in the game preview  for the Ravens game was to not turn the ball over. Matthew Stafford threw the final dagger in a poor performance on Monday night taking the air out of a sold out Ford Field in Detroit. Now the Lions must put this untimely poor performance behind them and attempt to finish the season with two consecutive wins, with the hope of some help from the Lions division rivals along the way. The Detroit Lions must be able to get the offence rolling early and often against a Giants team who has had its own share of disappointing quarterback performances this season. If Matthew Stafford can get off to a quick start look for the Lions to score fast and often against a vulnerable Giants defense. Also of concern to the Detroit Lions is at this point in the season the injuries continue to pile up including Brandon Pettigrew, Chris Houston and Darius Slay. With it being a shortened week for the Lions they need to get these players healthy and ready to compete on game day Sunday. If Pettigrew cannot go, look for Dorin Dickerson to get more action out there Sunday at tight end. Dickerson has one catch for 26 yards on Thanksgiving day versus the Green Bay Packers. The Lions will in tough trying to win their last two games of the season but it is possible and even more feasible with a healthy starting lineup. Look for the Lions to end the practice week strong, and take down the Giants on Sunday afternoon.
