Steelers' odds of winning the coin toss ... less than 50-50.

Too soon?

Just to be on the safe side let's make Jerome an honorary captain for the toss.

Detroit has 26th ranked offense and 19th ranked defense and given up 2nd most sacks. How did the Steelers end up with 2 games in a row against teams coming off bye weeks?

Anyone feel like this is another one of those games where we watch them struggle against a subpar team? I know I do...

This is the BYE week before the BYE week. And while I'm not scared of the Detroit Lions, this game does scare me. Especially considering the lack of effort we've seen from the Steelers against the Bears and the Jaguars.

However, I also feel this is the game where the offense gets better and the defense stands their ground.

Steelers in a landslide 38 - 13

Detroit isn't a bad team like Chicago so I don't think they'll be taken lightly. However, I don't think we will score that many points, we still haven't scored 30 at home

ESPN is saying that Golden Tate has a shoulder injury that could "keep him out a few weeks" and that it's time for Marvin Jones to step up for the Lions.

The trade Martavis rumor mill is going strong, in another article:

Martavis Bryant is enticing, but Lions should think hard if pondering a trade

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions have a separation problem. The team’s receivers have spent most of this season unable to distance themselves from opposing defensive backs. It’s caused problems for quarterback Matthew Stafford and underwhelming results for the entire Detroit offense.

And now Golden Tate is injured, his arm in a sling and his return date unknown.....

I wouldn't wish that even on the Ravens or Patriots*. Well, maybe the Patriots*.

Detroit is actually a good team. They lost their last games because Stafford was banged up but he had the time to heal during their bye week so you can expect them to play at the level of their first few games.

Gerry Dulac predicting a win. How weird is it to see "No.1 ranked secondary" and Steelers in the same sentence?

Quote :
Steelers (5-2) at Detroit Lions (3-3), 8:30 p.m. – After a quick start, the Lions have lost three of their past four games and two in a row at home. Meantime, the Steelers are going in the other direction. They have won three of their past four and two in a row on the road. The Steelers’ No. 1 ranked secondary will get its best test against Matthew Stafford. Prediction: Steelers, 30-20

Steelers 20 Lions 17. I'll go with that, but I wouldn't be surprised if they lose either.

The trend is the trend.
