Tony Moss of the Detroit Free Press predicts that the Lions will “crush” the Chiefs this weekend…
The Lions are very much in free fall, though if you go back and look at their last five losses, it’s hard to find anything truly shameful. Three of those defeats came to division winners Green Bay, Dallas, and San Diego, and the other two were to probable playoff participants the Giants and Minnesota. Detroit isn’t quite there yet in terms of being a contender, but it does have some talent and is capable of knocking out an inferior opponent like the Chiefs. Kansas City has been far less competitive than Detroit over the past two months, and there’s no logical reason to expect them to suddenly put forth an inspired effort this week.
Unfortunately, I think I agree with him. Actually, if Brodie Croyle plays well in a shootout loss it will be more like fortunately. The Chiefs’ eyes might be on finally nabbing an elusive win, but the fans are looking to improve the team’s draft status.
