Detroit vs. Everybody: Three Percent of NFL Experts Pick the Lions to Win Sunday
Detroit vs. Everybody.
That seems to be the overall sentiment again this week. According to NFL pick watch, 97 percent of NFL analysts are predicting the Cowboys to be victorious against the Lions Sunday at Ford Field.
The lone notable analyst who picked the Lions to win was Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
On Friday, Matthew Stafford was officially ruled out against the Cowboys. It will be his second consecutive game missed after starting 136 consecutive games.
Matt Patricia was asked about the scans Stafford underwent last week. "Yeah, there is definitely a medical plan in place as far as all of that is concerned," said Patricia. "I’m not going to go into the details of that. But there are different things that our doctors are doing, and everybody is doing to hit those markers when we get to them."
"He’s doing great. He’s fine, normal, grinding away, studying, getting ready to go, helping everybody around him and preparing, which is great," Patricia said during Friday's media session. "It just keeps everything consistent for us. He’s the same old – just getting ready to go play a game.”
