Cardinals RB Johnson questionable to return vs. Lions

Lions vs. Cardinals preview Arizona defense presents a challenge

Lions vs. Cardinals preview Arizona defense presents a challenge

With the Lions up 21-17 in the fourth quarter, Matthew Stafford unleashed a bomb from midfield.

It was a mind-boggling first half by the Lions.

The Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions meet up in the Motor City on Sunday in a show down of two high octane offenses looking to make a statement.

The Lions defense would come through again in the second quarter when safety Glover Quin intercepted another Palmer overthrow. He hit a 58-yarder in the first half.

The Lions defense will work hard defending the Cardinals.

Johnson was held in check Sunday, finishing with just 23 yards on 11 carries.

In the third quarter, the Cardinals offense-which had mustered just one field goal through 30 minutes of football-finally warmed up, with quarterback Carson Palmer stringing together two long drives, even as star tailback David Johnson watched from the sidelines with an injury.

Cleveland Indians had their suspicions about the sign-stealing Boston Red Sox
Speaking to reporters in in Boston on Tuesday, the commissioner said, "We actually do not have a rule against sign stealing". It's not known how long the Red Sox have been at it, but it's been "at least several weeks", according to Schmidt.

T.J. Jones hauled in 2-of-4 targets for 32 yards in the Lions' Week 1 win over the Cardinals.

Ironically, the two teams both faced Super Bowl competitors in Week 3 preseason.

The teams briefly traded punts, but as the Lions lined up to boot it out of their own end zone, punter Kasey Redfern dropped the snap and was forced to scramble.

Stafford finished the day completing 29 of his 41 passes for 291 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.

Play of game: The Lions drafted receiver Kenny Golladay in the third round because they liked his size and speed, and pegged him to be a pretty good weapon down the field and in the red zone. He was replaced on kickoff returns in the second half by Agnew.

Johnson is arguably the best running back in the game today along with Ezekiel Elliott and Le'Veon Bell.
