By Matt Schoch Special to The Detroit News Published 10:47 PM EDT Oct 27, 2018 Damon “Snacks” Harrison has us thinking about food this week, as the newest Lions’ addition arrived right in time for trick-or-treat season here in Detroit. The defensive tackle comes from the New York Giants with an impressive menu of accomplishments, including an All-Pro selection in 2016. As the usually well-fed Justin Rogers noted this week, Harrison has been dominant against the run, gorging ballcarriers into his belly. Here are five things to watch in Sunday’s main course against Seattle (1 p.m., FOX, WJR 760): 1. Will “Snacks” eat? Harrison should get a raucous welcome from a Ford Field crowd starving for a run-stuffer. The Lions enter at 29th in the NFL, dishing out 139.3 yards per game. Now, Seattle’s Chris Carson might not be an automatic fantasy running back play Sunday, and beware: Mike Davis has been a hungry touchdown vulture in the red … [Read more...] about Five things to watch: Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks (1 p.m,, FOX, 760 AM).
The Detroit News Published 2:40 PM EDT Oct 26, 2018 Justin Rogers, John Niyo and Bob Wojnowski of The Detroit News offer their predictions on the outcome of Sunday’s Lions vs. Seahawks game at Ford Field (1 p.m., Fox/760). Justin Rogers: This is a game where home field matters. I wouldn't feel comfortable taking the Lions on the road this week, but it's the Seahawks making the long trip east. When the talent margin is narrow, that's enough to be the difference. Lions, 22-19 John Niyo: Both teams are in a similar spot, and not just in the NFC standings. Seattle’s recommitted to the run game and overhauling its defense. But I’ll go with the home-field advantage and a receiving corps that’s becoming a matchup nightmare for most teams. Lions, 27-21 Bob Wojnowski: Let the Snacks Era begin! OK, so the acquisition of nose tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison isn’t necessarily a season-changer, but it sure can change the Lions’ run … [Read more...] about Detroit News predictions: Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks
Dave Birkett Detroit Free Press Published 12:41 PM EDT Oct 26, 2018 Free Press sports writer Dave Birkett breaks down Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks at Ford Field: Know the foe Seattle Seahawks (3-3) Coach: Pete Carroll (115-82-1 overall, 82-51-1 with Seahawks). Key players: QB Russell Wilson, WR Doug Baldwin, RB Chris Carson, DE Frank Clark, LB Bobby Wagner. Last game: Beat the Oakland Raiders, 27-3. Last meeting: 2016 season: Seahawks won, 26-6 (playoffs). The buzz: These aren’t the same Seahawks that made back-to-back Super Bowls in the 2013-14 seasons. They’ve dismantled the Legion of Boom, overhauled their running game and rebuilt their defensive line. And while the Seahawks are another in a string of middling teams on the Lions schedule, they’ve found a way to be successful thanks to an opportunistic defense and an offense that leads the league in red-zone efficiency. Carson and rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks: How the Lions can win
The NHL Board of Governors have still not officially voted to allow expansion to the city of Seattle, but as Pierre LeBrun notes on TSN’s latest Insider Trading segment, they’ve already worked out a realignment plan. A proposal has already been “vetted and adopted” by the board’s Executive Committee, the small selection of owners that first decides if things are even brought before the whole group. The realignment plan is now just waiting to see if Seattle will in fact be brought in as the league’s 32nd team, a vote that is expected to take place in early December.Though he can’t guarantee it, LeBrun and his fellow panelists, Darren Dreger and Bob McKenzie, apparently feel as though the realignment would consist of the Arizona Coyotes moving to the Central Division with Seattle taking their place in the Pacific Division. That’s the most obvious option, given the Central currently consists of just seven teams and putting a team from … [Read more...] about Realignment proposal ‘vetted and adopted’ for potential Seattle expansion
