One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Desperation Sunday

The St. Louis Rams look to Sunday to break their 17-game losing streak when they face the Lions at Ford Field.

Coming off the bye, the Lions (1-5) are looking for their second win.

Which team is more desperate?

It’s hard to tell. The Lions know this is their big chance to win another game. They will tell you that they want to win this just like they want to win every Sunday, but they know the Rams (0-7) stink. The Lions have to jump on this opportunity.

The Rams are coming off a humiliating 42-6 loss to the Colts on Sunday. St. Louis has managed just six touchdowns all season and one of them was courtesy of their defense. The Rams offense is ranked 26th in the NFL with Detroit’s at 25th (11 touchdowns, two from the defense).

The St. Louis defense is ranked 30th (allowing 385.4 yards per game) while Detroit is 26th (allowing 370.8 yards per game).

No line has been established yet. And, coincidentally, it is still up in the air whether Matthew Stafford (knee) will return to action or whether Daunte Culpepper will get his third straight start. The Lions had Monday off and will start practicing on Tuesday for Sunday’s huge game.
