Ok, then. Moving on. I am feeling very confident about this Sunday’s game against the Vikings. In fact, probably the most confident I will feel about any game the rest of the season (even Washington). Here is why:
Kirk Cousins is Matt Flynn with a better catchphrase.
It is a home game and Ford Field will be rocking with pissed, rabid fans.
The Lions players are probably going to be as emotionally charged as they can possible be for a regular season game.
The refs are on notice. Yes, I feel like they screwed the Lions. I have made that abundantly clear. But, I believe it was due to incompetence and complacency, not malicious intent. Remember when the ref crew that blew the whistle early against New Orleans made sure the next week that they swallowed it up when KC had the 100 yard fumble return against us? Let’s just say that unless Tre Flowers is walking around with the Left Tackle’s eyeball stuck to his middle finger, he isn’t going to get an illegal hands to the face call. If the Lions get a call against them, I am confident it will be legit.
Objectively, I think the Lions are slightly better than the Vikings. And for that reason, I expect with a shenanigans free game, the Lions will take care of business and get the W.
