3 defensive keys for Cardinals in Week 1 vs. Lions

Adjust Comment Print

For this week against the Lions however, our eyes should be on these three players. Running back Ameer Abdullah led the team with 30 yards on 15 carries. With Johnson struggling to find room, the team turned to Carson Palmer, but the veteran quarterback has two interceptions and no touchdowns.

The Detroit Lions got blown out by the champions in the first quarter 24-0. The Lions will gain yards, but the defense won't be able to get off the field if they give up cheap yards after contact.

And it's also bad for fantasy football owners across the nation.

Arizona was a trendy Super Bowl pick last season but a dismal start to the year quickly derailed those plans and now they are left trying to play their way back into that conversation, but they certainly have the pieces to do some damage, led by superstar running back David Johnson.

News Use Across Social Media Platforms 2017
The overall change isn't particularly substantial, but among some demographics, social media use increased significantly. That represents a modest increase from early 2016, when 62 percent of Americans reported getting news on social media .

Lions tackle A'Shawn Robinson forced a fumble that was recovered and returned by rookie Jarrad Davis, setting up a quick Theo Riddick touchdown catch. When the two teams played in 2015, Fitzgerald had a little under 60 yards and a touchdown.

The sparkling two-touchdown debut of third-round rookie receiver Kenny Golladay, plus the shocking four-takeaway performance of the Lions defense, resulted in 20 unanswered points and a massive 35-17 win. On a long, leading pass of 50 yards into the end zone, Golladay stretched out as much as he could and dove, bringing the ball in without it hitting the ground through some magic I can't explain.

Stafford finished his day 29-41 for 292 yards, four touchdowns and the one interception.
