What’s with all the Cialis commercials?

And why do they always end with the man and woman in separate bath tubs?

7-7 early in the second quarter is actually lower than I thought it would be at this point.

I think turnovers are the key for them to win.

Agreed, but the Lions must also take advantage when the Saints commit a turnover. Lions did not score on the possession resulting from the fumble recovery. Not good.

Agreed. I think New Orleans will come out in the 2nd half and score a lot of points.

Agreed.... Very important drive here for the Lions.
As long as they can keep the pace or better yet dictate the scoring pace they can afford take a few risks on D.

Jack, most fans in the NFL don't even know what city your team is located in. Heck they don't even know what state.

Detroit 14 - Saints 7. Early

Absolutely!
And no playoff jitters evident in the Lions offense. They came ready to play some ball.

Excatly. NO is going to score often in the 2nd half. Det needs all the spread it can manage in the 1st.

The Saints are world class sprinters in their building. You need to build up as much a head start as possible.

It would have been nice for Detroit to get something out of the Brees fumble.

Yes and I like it.
I'm really looking forward to next season...I live in South Jersey...Panthers vs the Eagles at the Linc. My wife, kids and I will be there in full Panthers gear. That's gonna be a whole lot of fun!

Detroit got screwed! That fumble should have been returned for a touchdown. Instead, there was the “inadvertent whistle”.

Great stop to force a FG to end the half and really overall nice first half by the Lions.
But is it enough of a head start? Can they keep getting the turnovers and maintain the pace?

Well it took the Saints less than two minutes to take the lead. Let’s see how the Lions respond.

Not really. Our D is letting you guys have your way on the field. Hopefully Matt is down and didn’t score.

Brees is money in the bank. If they get through this tough game, I think the next one will be significantly easier. Detroit is playing a great game but the Saints are just too good on offense.

Kill shot is right. All that is left is to see if the Saints cover the spread; right now they are.

Guys, I'm starting to relax. But plenty of time on the clock for Detroit.

Yes, I know we're not the Cowboys, but still.

Stafford to Johnson is a tough duo to cover.

Jim Schwartz may make a remark about Saints scoring 45 points on them. Not trying to run up the clock, just win it.

Congrats on the win. Stafford to Johnson was indeed a great duo and I was impressed with the way Detroit came out and jumped on New Orleans early on. But the Saints offense are in a league of their own....my favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
I think if the Giants win tomorrow, they have realistic shot of knocking off Green Bay. Good cold weather, veteran team with big game experience that can run the ball, get after a QB and plays well on the road.

Jumping to Sunday's game but - it's time for the Giants to take down another Ryan for the third week in a row.

I know it's not same family but it might as well be.

I'll pull for the Giants as well.

Just glad the Saints didn't score again after the second interception and the long drive.

The 49'ers will be tough.

Texans will play the Ravens. Pittsburgh is Number 5 and Denver is Number 4 so Pats get the lowest remaining seed, either Steelers or Broncos. Texans travel to Baltimore.
