Discuss the game and make a prediction. I couldn't find the line on my normal sportsbook because I think its not sure if Stafford will play. Pretty sure I saw the 6 points somewhere else though.

They had to go to overtime against the Dolphins...if we lose this then I'm going to take a break for a while.

These past two losses have been very frustrating. They do have the Tebow magic going for them. :/

Yeah must win now that we blew a 5-0 start though 49ers are tougher than expected and Falcons are still solid.

If the Lions started 5-2 any other way I would be happy right now but 5-0 to 5-2 is not good. Next 3 games are big because the 5 of the last 6 games are brutal.

Lions win by 10. I worry about Von Miller and Champ. Offensively really nothing about the Broncos other than Clady and company giving Tebow lots of time to make even Tebow look good. Rattle Tebow and finally put up some points that the Lions are capable of putting up.

Yeah i see our dline giving tebow tons of issues. They're running game is nothing to be scared about which should allow us to really slow their offense.

Offensively it will be interesting to see if broncos allow champ to take on calvin 1 on 1. Either way i think the offense needs to start scoring and using ALL the weapons we have. Not yet calvin and pettigrew. It seems like if a defense slows them down we start to slow down.

I was disappointed that we didn't get Pettigrew going more last game. I know we had to slow down John Abraham, but there's nothing wrong with quick 8 yard passes to Pettigrew either.

(10 char).

This is what happens when the Lions start early.

What a great game. The only thing that was driving me nuts was how long Schwartz left Stafford in the game.

Great game. Someone else finally did something besides Calvin. Young first drive set the tone and Scheffler made two nice plays. Morris ran hard on limited carries with a decent YPC.

Defense, that is what I like to see. 7 sacks and 2 defensive scores. Defense needs to play like this down the stretch. It was Tebow, but Denver Oline is NFL caliber. Big win going into the bye.

Huge game at Chicago. Another must win for playoffs IMO. Going to be a battle.
