TeXan $$$ indigestion anyone ?
True , 8 long years , Lions appear to mutate into Turkeys.
Taking closer look at the "streak",
Behold Turkey Qb's prior to Stouffer/ Johnson era :
Culpepper, Kitna and Garcia
Stouffer era ,Lions have faced Divisional Pack 2 X and Pats en fuego on Thanksgiving.
No doubt TeXans are good yet far from en Fuego of late , showing significant slow down after blistering start facing Lions team that can ill afford to go 4 - 7 with a loss.
Similar to Jets scenario last week, which I posted n' Cashed in as upset ML play , Lions face similar do or die playoff type game vs TeXans team that has little to none concerns having division pretty much wrapped up with NONE time to address inexplicable secondary meltdown vs Jags Chad Henning 354 yrds + 4 TD 's + O INTS !
Closer look ,exposes TeX's soft white underbelly vs. Gunslingin' QB's : A.Rodgers 338 yrds 6 TDS - P.Manning 330 Yrds 2 TDS
Stouffer certainly not up there but has Gunsligin' ability
avg. + 300 yrds .
LIONS red flag: Seattle lynch ran 105 yrds @ Det.
Similar outcome likely with TeX's Foster looking to make it 4 in a road row @+100 yrds.
Foster Will hit mark.
Keeping Stafford / Johnson on the sides will be TeX plan
via run attack.
However , Jags Henne 4 TD 0 INT Blueprint will absolutely be exploited vs Do or die Lions.
TeX can take comfort getting W next week vs Titans .
Lions 0 - 8 Turkey streak should end here ( unless TO's dictate game) with Tex's secondary expected to be gasping for air by 4th quarter in heated Dome with C.Johnson / Stouffer combo connecting for 3 TDS.
LIONS 27 TEXANS 26
$ Happy thanksgiving to all $
