I AM BACK!!!!!

In the past, I tried to do too much with this site with way too little time. Yet, I have been feeling a need to write about the Lions lately. So I have decided to change the Detroit Lions Observer to a few basic things. Writing articles when I feel a need to, keeping track of their wins and losses, and I am still deciding if I will go through and update Ndamukong Suh's Sack List.

Lions vs Redskins Pregame Week-8

If you watch the message boards, you see every outcome for this game. The Lions will crush the Redskins. No, the Redskins will demolish the Lions. The game will be a close one. Here are the facts....

The Lions are favored for only the second time this season. The last time they were favored, they crushed the Rams 44-6.

McNabb has not been exactly lights out this season. With one more interception than he has touchdowns, he has also thrown two interceptions in each of his last two games. McNabb has been sacked 10 times in the last three games as well. These are stats that play heavily into the Lions strong defensive line's favor.

The Lions have played well against several good teams this year while using their back-up quarterback and even their 3rd string quarterback.

The Lions are coming off of a bye week and looking much more healthier for it. Stafford will be back and his strong arm and courage to throw the deep ball should help the Lions offense. Jahvid Best has been hampered by two turf toe injuries and is now feeling a lot stronger with the two week rest. DeAndre Levy is getting healthier but it is not known how close he is to being truly healthy at this time. Not to mention how much a two week rest will help Calvin Johnson with his shoulder injury as well.

Still, it is not all good for the Lions and bad for the Redskins. There are a few points to worry about if you are a Lions fan.

Ryan Torain has had back to back games of over 100 yards.

Washington has won four games this year. Three of which were against Philadelphia, Green Bay and Chicago. Though the Lions should have had a win against Chicago and could have against the other two, they are still three teams that beat the Lions.

The Redskins are in the top ten in the NFL in sacks and it would only take one sack to find the Lions with Stanton as their starting quarterback.

Stafford has not played since the first half of the first game of the season and should be expected to have some rust to shake off. Lions fans need to hope it doesn't take too long and that any mistakes are not too costly as he does shake that rust off.

All in all, this isn't expected to be a blow out of a game. It has the potential to be a landslide victory for either team but if all things even out, so will the score for the most part. Yet I do see the Detroit Lions having a chance to start the second half off with a victory which is direly needed.

Detroit Lions - 34
Washington Redskins - 24
