Lions at Cowboys: Game preview, odds, prediction

Lions at Cowboys: Game preview, odds, prediction

"I have to pinch myself to think about where we are at the quarterback position knowing how critical a setback or an injury is to any position, but especially at that position as we look to this playoff", Jones said.

The first place Detroit Lions head for a key road showdown with the Dallas Cowboys.

After Thursday's practice, Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said on a teleconference that his team was planning on going all-in for a win against the Detroit Lions on Monday night.

Stafford made the 2014 Pro Bowl, but since being the No. 1 overall pick of the Lions in 2009, that remains his only Pro Bowl appearance to date.

What makes this year more impressive is Stafford is doing this without his big time receiver, Calvin Johnson. That means the Cowboys will have home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. They didn't score another touchdown over the last three quarters and Dallas came away with a 24-20 victory, robbing the Lions of what many believe was their best chance at an extended playoff run. "It's a new team and a new challenge". Theo Riddick, who leads the team in rushing with 357 yards, is better known for his pass-catching abilities.

In the AFC, the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders have secured playoff spots.

Where the Giants are now and likely for the rest of the season is a team dependent on a rebuilt defense to carry offense that moved the ball well against the Eagles but struggled with turnovers. I would like nothing more see the Dallas Cowboys pull a Usain Bolt by completely dominating the competition and cross the finish line first.

"I have a lot of respect for him and how he treated me and how he brought me along", Stafford said. Void of surrounding talent, the Lions finished 2-14 in Stafford's first year.

Stafford, who has set an National Football League record this season with eight game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime, was snubbed in favor of Matt Ryan (starter), Aaron Rodgers and Dak Prescott. "As far as velocity and accuracy, all that kind of stuff, I wasn't ideal, but I felt like I was playing at a high level".

Stafford's team, though, is playing in a must-win game on Monday night.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife Kelly are coming to the aid of the family of a Detroit police officer who was killed in a hit-and-run driver during a traffic stop in October.
