This is why the preseason does not count.
The Calvin Johnson-Reggie Bush duality worked exactly as the Detroit Lions dreamed it would in the team’s regular season opener Sunday.
The Lions overcame a slew of miscues on offense, defense and special teams.
Adrian Peterson started the 2013 season in MVP style.
The Detroit Lions have activated Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah after listing him as probable to play against the Minnesota Vikings because of a concussion.
Adrian Peterson rushed for over 2,000 yards last season, and Calvin Johnson nearly reached that same mark as a receiver.
Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams has been ruled out for the season opener Sunday against Detroit.
The Detroit Lions remind fans about the NFL’s new bag policy for their games and large events at Ford Field – including the regular season opener vs. the Minnesota Vikings September 8.
For Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young, the best way to describe the inexplicable ability of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is to invoke the mind-numbing talent of Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
It’s a far cry from his attitude in 2011 when he said he would “drown himself” if he had to live in “glomy” and “depressing” Detroit.
