Week 4 Itinerary: Lions at Cowboys

So this week the Lions are playing in what many consider the premiere game in the first batch of contests on Sunday. Though a loss wouldn't exactly be devastating, this game is pretty big for several reasons. The Lions are going to be on a national stage for the first non-Thankgiving week in awhile. The Cowboys are also a great test to this team, being a high-octane offense the likes of which the Lions have yet to face this year. Finally, the Cowboys are potentially a wild-card contender and gaining the tie-breaker this early in the season could be huge come early January.

With all that in mind, here's what you need to read to get ready for this huge matchup:

My Stuff
  • I broke down Jared Allen's three sacks against the Lions to figure out who is to blame and what can be corrected this week for facing the dynamic DeMarcus Ware.
  • My statistical preview of the Cowboys game, which had another solid prediction last week (my prediction: 24-20, final score 26-23), finds some interesting results about how well the Lions have played against the pass so far.
Stuff Better Than Mine
Moving Pictures Time!

Okay, so the Lions lose this game 37-3, but look at that awesome 90s style production.
This video is worth a look at for this picture alone:
I want that jacket.

I expect this to happen at least three times this week, except replace the ball with Ndamukong Suh's body.

This video is made infinitely better if you imagine the baby trying to actually fart before raspberry-ing.

Side note, if "Cowboys Suck" videos were honey-glazed hams, we could cure world-hunger with youtube.

Enough nonsense, Go Lions.
