OffenseOffensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter’s squad is fortunate to have a healthy T.J. Lang returning from a concussion in Week 4 against the Cowboys Devon Kennard Jersey White , but the loss of running back Theo Riddick after some missed practices reduces options in crucial third down situations. Riddick is obviously an amazing receiving threat, but our John Whiticar reminded the rest of the staff that he is also the best pass protector in the Detroit backfield.The Dolphins expect to get starting cornerback Bobby McCain and Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake back on the field for Sunday’s contest against the Lions, so this will not be the same unit that gave Mitchell Trubisky ample time in a clean pocket to look like a legitimate quarterback. This means keeping Matthew Stafford upright to buy time for receivers to get open against good coverage could be a tough challenge in the Miami heat. Other notable items on offense for the final injury report of the week are that tight end Michael Roberts is ready to go, as is running back Kerryon Johnson. After a full week of rest, the rookie sensation is back from tweaking his ankle against Green Bay. Both Lang and Roberts were full participants at practice on Thursday and Friday despite being listed on the final injury report, and should be available to play on game day.DefenseOn the other side of the ball, lingering pain in Ryan Tannehill’s throwing shoulder from an injury against the Bengals earlier in the season means Brocktober rolls on. Pride of Detroit’s Justin Simon thinks Osweiler is the weakest link of the Dolphins offense due to his inability to get the ball down the field consistently. Per Windy City Gridiron’s Robert Zeglinski, “280 of (Osweiler’s 380) passing yards came after the catch with the Bears defense missing 19 tackles as a team.”That means defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni’s favorite points of emphasis will be the focus against Miami. Stop Frank Gore. Prevent big plays by tackling Albert Wilson right away. Take away Osweiler’s easy reads and make him uncomfortable. The one mystery on Detroit’s injury report is intricately tied to these paths to success: Ezekiel Ansah. The fact that Ziggy has been limited but available all week does not really provide much information:Limited and questionable leading up to Week 2 on the road at the 49ers - InactiveLimited and questionable at home in Week 3 against the Patriots - InactiveNo practice and an early out in the Week 4 loss to the Cowboys - InactiveLimited but again an early out for the Week 5 win over the Packers - InactiveLimited in practice all week heading into the post-bye Week 7 game with the DolphinsOur Jeremy Reisman has this as a key match-up to watch for Pasqualoni’s unit: “Ansah has now had a full month to recover from his shoulder injury, and it seems logical this would be the week he returns. However, he remains limited in practice Womens Theo Riddick Jersey , so who knows?” Thankfully for the purposes of crashing Brocktoberfest the defensive front once again has the services of Eli Harold (3.0 sacks in four games so far) — but it sure would be nice to get Ziggy back, too.The Lions are in surprisingly good health on the back end despite the loss of Jamal Agnew to injured reserve. Both cornerback Teez Tabor (groin injury against the Packers) and veteran safety Tavon Wilson (inactive against the Packers) were full participants all week at practice. Any inactives for the secondary on Sunday will likely be at the discretion of the coaching staff and not due to injuries.

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions have beaten Aaron Rodgers– and Tom Brady-led teams this season.And yes, they still have a losing record.Detroit has provided glimpses of its potential, beating the Green Bay Packers 31-23 on Sunday in their first home game since dominating the New England Patriots.The Lions (2-3) have also shown they have plenty of weaknesses, which were on display in a 31-point loss to the New York Jets at home and during comeback attempts that fell short on the road against Dallas and San Francisco.Matthew Stafford has had time to throw this season behind an improved offensive line and he has one of the NFL’s best trio of receivers: Kenny Golladay, Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Rookie Kerryon Johnson and veteran LeGarrette Blount have giving the team a running game it hasn’t had in years. And, the Lions are also having some success on defense under first-year coach Matt Patricia, whose scheme gave Rodgers and Brady problems.Just don’t ask Detroit’s coaches or players to explain how they can look so good in one game and not so good in another because they can’t explain it.“This is the way you want to play the game, out in front and to not have to come back,” said Stafford Womens Matthew Stafford Jersey , who helped the Lions lead 24-0 at halftime. “I just think that we had a great week of practice and it showed in the game.”Here are some other takeaways from the Packers-Lions game.MASON MISSESGreen Bay kicker Mason Crosby cost his team 13 points, missing a career-high four field goals in a game along with an extra point.“I don’t usually get this much attention unless I’ve done something really good or really bad,” Crosby said, surrounded by reporters. “This one is unfortunately really bad.”EMERGING STARGolladay had four receptions for 98 yards and a touchdown, which helped the Lions lead 31-14 in the fourth quarter. His play of the day was a 60-yard reception in which he leaped to catch while covered closely by cornerback Josh Jackson and went on to stiff-arm safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix onto his back.“He’s obviously a big kid, physical kid, can run, wants to be a really good player,” Stafford said.The 6-foot-4, 213-pound Golladay has 27 receptions for 428 yards and three TDs this season. The second-year pro Danny Amendola Jersey , who was a third-round pick from Northern Illinois, had 28 receptions for 477 yards and three scores as a rookie.PIVOTAL PENALTIESGreen Bay was flagged 12 times for 112 yards and one of most costly penalty allowed Detroit to convert a third down. After stopping Golladay short of a first down in the third quarter, rookie safety Tony Brown stood over him and was penalized for taunting.“The negatives that you want to talk about is really about the penalties,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.NOT A COINCIDENCEThe Lions entered the game giving up an NFL-high 158 yards rushing per game. They allowed Green Bay to gain just 98 yards. That forced Rodgers to pass 52 times, the third-highest total of his career, for 442 yards, the second-highest total of his career.Detroit had kept only one other team to fewer than 100 yards rushing this season and that was the Patriots, the only other team it beat this season.WHAT’S NEXTGreen Bay (2-2-1) will have an extra day of rest and preparation before hosting San Francisco on Oct. 15. The Lions are off until Oct. 21 when they play at Miami.
