EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — Alim McNeil awoke from a deep slumber at about 7:15 a.m. Sunday, supposedly equipped with knowledge of the Lions’ score against the Giants long before the coin-op hit for MetLife Stadium. McNeil, Detroit’s promising sophomore defensive tackle, had a hunch that he would go the Lions’ way. Sometimes, it can be that simple. Intuition can lead to confidence, confidence can lead to good football, and good football can lead to good victories. No player goes into a game thinking he is going to lose, but winning…

NFL picks against the spread: Vic Tafur’s Week 9 predictions

I can’t even win right. I jinxed my first winning week of the season, celebrating a 9-4 start (that should have been 11-2) on social media and dancing in the street. I then lost the two night games. The Bills should have covered the 11.5-point spread Sunday night against the Packers but Green Bay got the backdoor cover to spoil one of my best bets. The Bengals then got blown out by the Browns in the Monday night game. Our best bets went 1-2. Along with the Bills failing to…

Detroit Lions owner Sheila Ford Humpe addressed the frustrations arising from the team’s season so far, while reaffirming her faith in coach Dan Campbell and GM Brad Holmes on Wednesday. “I know it’s tough,” Hump told reporters during Wednesday’s training session. “Rebuilding us is tough. We really believe in our process, and we really believe – we’re going to turn this thing right, through the draft. It takes patience. It’s frustrating. “Progress. You know, I’ve seen it.

Jeff Okuda is among the young lions who are showing growth and promise for the future

In the midst of a losing season, to say the least, the team wants to see development and opportunities for young players who might go on to win. This is nothing new for Lions fans over the years, of course. But Sunday provided a good glimpse into the group Detroit could one day count on to turn things around. Several first- and second-year players played well in Sunday’s loss to Dallas. Although the gains are still lacking, the young players who are developing and achieving success in their individual roles…

When the Lions’ defense finally clicks, the attack hardly misses the chance to overpower the Cowboys

ARLINGTON, TX – In an unmistakable but justified moment of frustration, the headset went off. And so, too, Detroit’s shot pulled off the win. Like many times this season, Dan Campbell’s lions have been there. A four-point game in the fourth quarter. A defense apparently found some answers. Driving offense with a traffic light in mind. A chance to get out of the farewell with a much-needed victory. Only to be floundered. This time, in every sense of the word. “It was frustrating,” Campbell said after Detroit’s 24-6 loss in…

Benny Sewell wants Lions to be one of the “Great”, and he’s on his way

ALLEN PARK, MI – Late on a Wednesday afternoon in October, Benny Sewell nodded when asked the question, then nodded again before answering. He understands where the conversation is going. This is a player who seems to have graduated after the basics. It processes faster and plays faster. He has a better understanding of how defenses attack him, rather than just focusing on his own mission in a particular game. He’s seen a bunch of NFL rush packs and is learning how to counteract them. It’s the kind of advancement…

Welcome back, Dak Prescott. Prescott will likely return to the Cowboys’ starting lineup when they host the Lions at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at AT&T Stadium on FOX. The Cowboys are the favorites against the Lions, who are coming out of their farewell week after losing the lockdown in New England. Cooper Rush did a good job for Dallas, but in a suddenly difficult department, the Cowboys find themselves looking at undefeated vultures and surprised Giants. In the meantime, the Lions are playing hard for coach Dan Campbell, but…

How can lions improve the scrolling dash? John Kominsky’s return may help

DETROIT — The fourth-round NFL pick that the team that drafted him ceded just three years later is an unlikely candidate for his new club to view as a squad builder. Perhaps this speaks more about the Lions’ defensive depth – or lack thereof – but it should not distort what John Kominsky has intended for Detroit this season. His absence, who has missed each of the past three games, has loomed large as the Lions attempt to make a consistent dash of passes. And his impending comeback, perhaps as…
