    Main Storylines to Watch

    How do the Lions bounce back after their embarrassing blowout loss in Week 7? The Lions went into Week 7 with many thinking they might be the team to beat in the NFC. After getting absolutely demolished in Baltimore, the Lions need to bounce back and show they are still a top contender in the NFC. The Lions defense struggled to stop the passing game of the Ravens and the Lions offense did nothing until garbage time of the game. This looks like a prime opportunity for a bounce-back game.

    Can Jimmy G’s return help bolster this offense? The Raiders struggled against the Chicago Bears in Week 7. The Bears are one of the worst teams in the NFL this year. Jimmy G is returning in Week 8 and the Raiders need him to be more productive to keep up with this high-powered Lions’ offense. Jimmy will need to feed his offensive weapons and avoid turnovers to have a chance to pull off an upset on Monday night.
