4. Do the Lions miss Ndamukong Suh?  Who are the defenders that have stepped in to fill the void in his absence?

Sure, any team that loses a player of that caliber will miss him. That being said, the team’s downfall can’t be traced to Suh’s departure. The collapse from a year ago has been so multi-faceted that Suh’s absence isn’t to blame and his presence wouldn’t have avoided what we’re seeing. Suh isn’t exactly tearing it up in Miami, but my answer would be the same even if he was.

5. What’s your prediction for the Battle for the NFC North cellar?  Who inches their way closer to that top pick in the 2016 NFL Draft?  Please include a score.

I’ve been burned predicting a Lions win twice this season already but I’m going to try again this week. The Lions aren’t as bad as they’ve shown and even though they are 0-5, they raced out to a 21-3 at San Diego and had opportunities to beat the Broncos and at Seattle. Lions 20, Bears 16
