The Line: Detroit Lions +3 -- Over/Under: 44 See the Latest Odds
The Lions look to shake off a tough loss on the road in Seattle last week as they return home to Ford Field to face one of the league's top teams in Arizona.
The Cardinals are coming off a tough loss at home to their division rivals from St. Louis in a game where they didn't look at all like the team that had ripped off three straight wins but not they get to take out their frustrations on a Lions team who has yet to win a football game. The Cards offense had been on cruise control until last week as Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald renewed their rapport and if they are going to get back in the win column the offense is going to have to step up and against a Lions defense they should have no trouble. Chris Johnson remains the starting back but the return of Andre Ellington and the emergence of David Johnson could make this a running back by committee situation which will be nice for the Cards but terrible for fantasy owners.

The Lions continue to find new ways to lose football games and last week was something special as a potential game winning touchdown from Calvin Johnson ended in a fumble at the goal line and an incorrect ruling on the touch back leaving the Lions without another shot to win the game. Detroit is still searching for their first win of the season and are hoping a trip home will be the answer but they get a Cards team coming off a tough loss and you can bet Arizona will be geared up for this one to prove once again they are Super Bowl contenders. Arizona is the better team on both sides of the ball and they should have no issues getting back in the win column here.
