Lions @ Cards

Recommended Posts



Detroit beat Arizona, 35-23, in Week 1 last season, snapping a seven-game losing streak versus the Cardinals. The Lions have lost their last eight games in Arizona, which is their third-longest active road losing streak (49ers -- 12, Steelers -- 9). Detroit hasn't won there since 1993.

The Lions have gone 1-5 since winning back-to-back games in Weeks 5 and 7. Detroit averaged 31.5 points in those two wins but has since scored 16.2 points per game.

The Cardinals beat the Packers at Lambeau, 20-17, snapping a three-game losing streak. Arizona, however, has gone 1-5 at home this season, on pace to be the franchise's least successful season at home since going 1-5-1 in 1971 (ties not factored into win percentage until 1972).

Matthew Stafford has thrown at least one interception in three of his last four games -- the Lions have lost all three games. Since 2015, Stafford's record is 8-21 (.276) when he throws at least one interception; only Blake Bortles (.250) and Philip Rivers (.250) have worse records in that span (min. 20 games).

Josh Rosen led his team to victory against the Packers despite completing only 42.3 percent (11-for-26) of his passes. He has won twice this season when completing less than 50.0 percent of his attempts and is the only quarterback with multiple victories in such games.

Chandler Jones has 76 sacks through 99 games in his career. Among active players, only J.J. Watt (87.5) and Von Miller (82.5) had more through their first 100 games.
