  1. As a Lions fan, I love Suh having the attitude to say what he said about not losing at home again this year. For the record, it wasn’t a prediction, it was simply him saying he doesn’t foresee any more setbacks. Despite this though, I think you need to get that first one this weekend vs the Rams (and keep in perspective that it’s a slowly improving Rams team, not a Superbowl team) before you start talking.
    I like what the Lions have shown in every game this year, aside from the record, the penalties and the red zone INT’s from a back up QB. They’re playing tough.
    Some of the remaining home games could be tough though. Hope you’re right though Suh. Love a rookie playing as good as he is. First season, doubled and tripled every play, and still playing like one of the best DT’s in the game already. Keep it up.

  2. “Bye weeks have been beneficial to the Patriots under coach Bill Belichick. ”
    No, statistical noise. The Pats are 116-45 under Belichick (that is .720), 8-2 after Bye (.800). So had they lost only one more game after the bye (possibly against the Ravens), they would drop below the general winning percentage under Belichick.
    Get your stats right.
