Haven't watched any of Bagent, should we hope to face him or have Fields come back from his injury?

Exactly what I was wondering. Either way, I will be disappointed in anything less than 5-0 the next five games against Chicago x2, Green Bay, Denver, and New Orleans. It’s the NFL, chances are the Lions will lose at least one of those games, but will be heavily favoured in all. @Chargers was the toughest game on the post-bye schedule apart from @Cowboys and arguably @Vikings.

So far we've handled our business against teams that we should beat with both our losses coming to playoff teams but seemingly every team loses atleast once to a bad or mediocre team so I wouldn't be shocked if they lose one of the two to the Bears.

If not them then maybe a team like the Broncos. Either way the pessimist in me is expecting atleast one loss to one of those sub par teams just cause that is what history tells you in the NFL.

lost season for houston.  

the ends have been a real disappointment this year (other than hutch, of course).  romeo was never a real rushing end but even that has fallen off.  charles harris has been bad.  cominsky is just a plugger.  julian okwara has now had his chance and hasnt shown anything.  houston was a real find last year ao its a shame he got injured.

they desperately needed one of those guys to step up.  they've even started to put campbell at rush linebacker some because everyone else has failed.

See Billy run...they couldn't catch him with a gun

There was a memorable swipe of a Gatorade table too at some point. Can't believe he only played 5 seasons with the Lions for a 60-game NFL career. When you're young, it feels so much longer.
