In My View 8/5/2019: Detroit Lions

By  | 

(WILX) -- What will the Detroit Lions get out of Thursday's pre season opening game at home against the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots?

If the game counted, as I say it should, then it would be a big deal.

But this one is for the back up players trying to make the final rosters.

The Lions need to identify a backup quarterback for Matthew Stafford and at the moment there is none established.

I guess when Stafford leaves the game Thursday early, watching the potential backups will be the key part of such a game.
