NFL: New Orleans Saints at Detroit Lions

Week 7 in the National Football League and the New Orleans Saints where in Detroit to take on the Detroit Lions. It was an interesting game as Calvin Johnson was out due to injury and Saints star tight end Jimmy Graham was limited after returning from a shoulder injury. The Detroit Lions score 17 points in the fourth quarter to defeat the Saints 24-23.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions

After covering the Oklahoma at West Virginia game Saturday night. I have a 9am flight out of Pittsburgh back to Detroit to cover the Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions. The flight was only 40 minutes but my Uber drive had no idea how to get from the Detroit Airport to downtown Detroit with avoiding traffic. After getting frustrated I had give him directions. I got 3 blocks away from the stadium and I got out and walk the rest of the way.

Week 3 of the NFL is upon us and that means the starters are playing well into the second quarter before they are replaced by rookies and other guys trying to make the team. The big story was ChadĀ Henne andĀ Blake Bortles battling it out at the quarterback position.

For the fourth year in a row, I would have to work on Thanksgiving Day covering the Green Bay Packers vs the Detroit Lions. Detroit is 0-9 over the past nine years on Thanksgiving and this was their year! With Aaron Rodgers being hurt the Lions were able to pull out a 40-10 victory.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traveled from warm sunny Florida to play indoors where it’s always 75 degrees. The 2-9 Buccaneers came to play defeating the Detroit Lions 24-21. The only thing I don’t understand about the Lions are how can you have a QB throw for 5,000 yards year after year and a receiver with 9,000 career receiving yards and only score an average of 25 points per game the whole season. I will let everyone thing about that.

The NFL preseason came to an end for me tonight. I usually cover all four weeks of the preseason but this year my schedule wouldn’t allow it. The Buffalo Bills at Detroit Lions was a 7:00pm game, I arrived at the stadium around 5:30pm. For Lions games you have to arrive a little earlier then most stadiums because the media parking is a few blocks away from the stadium. After parking and walking a few blocks to the media entrance, I picked up my NFL vest and I was off to the field to get ready for the game.
