A look back at the Detroit Lions’ 2014 season.
The Dallas Cowboys head into the NFL wild card playoffs against the number one rush defense in the nation. However, the Detroit Lions just learned their best defensive player, Ndamukong Suh, has been suspended.
The Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions prepare to play in the NFC wild card game. Here is a look at the Lions as they take on Dallas in the Cowboys first playoff berth in five years.
The Green Bay Packers do not have to play this Sunday. That is a good thing as quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be able to get some extra rest before the Packers begin their run toward the Super Bowl. They will host one of three teams in the Divisional Round. Their opponent will be determined by the outcome of the Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys game.
The Detroit Lions have to face the Dallas Cowboys and their excellent offense, perhaps without Ndamukong Suh.
Ndamukong Suh is active for Detroit’s game against Minnesota on Sunday after missing practice time with an illness.
The Minnesota Vikings have seen their fair shares of injuries this season with four starters already on injured reserve. This week they will travel to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions without four more starters. Anthony Barr, Sharrif Floyd, Robert Blanton and Charlie Johnson all were declared out for the game. In total, the Vikings have nine players listed on the injury report. The Lions have nine players on their respective list as well.
The Minnesota Vikings play two of their last three games on the road, beginning with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. The Vikings lost to the Lions at TCF Bank Stadium in Week 6, 17-3. The Lions did not have most of their offensive weapons on the field or at 100 percent. The Vikings remain in the playoff picture, but need to win-out and get some help.
Here is a list of the dirtiest players of football history.
The Minnesota Vikings play the Detroit Lions Sunday in the last game ever in Mall of America Field. The Lions have a dynamic passing offense. They boast stout front-seven on their defense. Running back Reggie Bush and defensive tackle Nick Fairley are a pair of players to watch for the Lions.
The Detroit Lions were dominant after a shaky start and snapped a few losing streaks.
Don from Eden Prairie and Linda from Roseville want to know: What happens to the money collected when NFL players are fined?
The Minnesota Vikings are expecting to get a big boost from the return of defensive tackle Kevin Williams from injury. The 11-year NFL veteran missed just the third game of his career due to injury. The Vikings have eight players on their injury report, including four full participants and four limited participants.
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh says he is appealing the NFL’s $100,000 fine against him for his hit on a Vikings player over the weekend.
The Minnesota Vikings expected to have defensive tackle Kevin Williams and center John Sullivan at practice this week, despite knee injuries. The NFL is reportedly going to levy a heavy fine to Ndamukong Suh for his low block on Sullivan. Cordarrelle Patterson played only five plays Sunday and it was the coaches choice. Could a change at quarterback be coming for the Vikings? It has been done before in Minnesota.
Detroit star Ndamukong Suh has been fined $100,000 by the NFL for his illegal low block in the season-opening victory over the Minnesota Vikings last weekend.
Ndamukong Suh might’ve gotten himself in trouble with another nasty play on the field. Suh’s illegal low block in Detroit’s game on Sunday against Minnesota will be reviewed for potential discipline, NFL spokesman Randall Liu confirmed Monday in an email to The Associated Press.
Fixing the Pro Bowl voting system isn’t easy. But the league needs to straighten this out and start picking players who deserve it.
The Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers form the NFL’s best division. The Bears sit atop the standings, but have issues with its offense. The Packers won the division last season, but the defense remains its weak link. The Vikings and Adrian Peterson are one of the best stories in the league, but do they have enough to make the playoffs. The Lions remain in the hunt, but can they get hot and catch the teams ahead of them.
