Three Detroit Lions to watch against Arizona Cardinals

Three Lions to watch today in the big NFC match-up against the Arizona Cardinals:

1. After missing six games, Joe Fauria will return. Look for him and Eric Ebron to give Matthew Stafford options especially in the red zone. Fauria was so close to playing last week he even had his game paints and socks on when he found out he wasn’t playing. He practiced at full-go all week. Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is inactive for the game. Ebron will get the start in his place. Don't forget Kellen Davis who will also be active.

2. Ziggy Ansah seems to just get better game by game. It started with the contest against the Vikings and he hasn’t let up. In the win over the Dolphins last Sunday, he had a sack, two tackles for loss, a quarterback hit and a forced fumble.

3. Theo Riddick has caught touchdown passes in three of the last four games. With cornerbacks Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie concentrating on Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, look for Riddick to be key again especially because Reggie Bush is unlikely to play.

Kickoff is at 4:25 p.m.
