Lions trying to boost chances of beating Seahawks

By  | 

DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Lions boosted their chances of slowing down Seattle's running game and contending in the NFC North with one major move.

They acquired Damon Harrison from the New York Giants for a fifth-round pick.

The player known as Snacks is one of the NFL's top interior defensive linemen.

Seattle has emerged as one of the NFL's best running teams, helping it win three of four after losing the first two games of the season.

The Lions have been one of the league's worst against the run.
