Detroit Lions (1-7) at Green Bay Packers (6-2) R-E-L-A-X. If Aaron Rodgers hadn’t said that last year after the Packers lost 2 of 3 games, he definitely would have said it now, after the Packers have lost 2 straight games. Both losses came on the road, against tough opponents, Carolina and Denver. The Packers still […]

Detroit Lions (1-6) at Kansas City Chiefs (2-5) in London Typically, the better team covers in London.

Detroit Lions (7-2) at Arizona Cardinals (8-1) The Cardinals have the NFL’s best record at 8-1, but they’re also the most overrated team in the NFL I believe. They rank just 14th in rate of moving the chains differential, moving the chains at a 72.56% rate, as opposed to 70.71% for their opponents, a differential […]
