Lions vs. Saints: Preview, score prediction for Week 6

Matthew Stafford

The New Orleans Saints will be back at home for the first time in three weeks as they take on the Detroit Lions.

And, in a video game gone wild, they won. "If you have (a game) right away, you certainly try to get it behind you within a relatively short period of time, and this particular week, it's not a bad thing that we need to be concerned about a whole lot of things in terms of how we're playing", he said. Stafford is the leader of this team, and Detroit has a better chance of winning this game with him under center.

The Lions' defensive front also struggled to put any pressure on Drew Brees, failing to record a sack while hitting him only twice.

Still, Stafford said he "absolutely" never considered leaving the game. "Sorry to see him to go off the field with whatever he has got, but he is a big part of our offence".

"We don't want to be a yo-yo team", safety Kenny Vaccaro said.

Saints defensive end Cam Jordan had the biggest takeaway of the game with 5:04 left by tipping and then intercepting a Matthew Stafford pass in the end zone - the Saints' third defensive touchdown of the game - to snuff out the Lions' 28-point, second-half comeback from a 45-10 deficit to take a 52-38 lead.

Detroit quickly tied up the score on a 45-yard scoring strike from Stafford to Golden Tate, who raced down the right sideline while breaking multiple tackles with 7:02 left in the first period.

"For all the stuff we were doing right a year ago in practice, for some reason it wasn't translating to the field". Kamara had a season-high 10 carries for a season-high 75 yards - and a rather spectacular leaping hurdle over Lions cornerback Darius Slay at the end of a 14-yard run in the third quarter. "We've got little things to work on and keep our nose to the grindstone", Caldwell said.

Battered and bruised after suffering an ankle injury a week ago, Stafford entered Sunday's game behind a patchwork offensive line and found himself facing a New Orleans defense coming off of breakthrough performances against Carolina and Miami. The Saints entered the game as one of only three teams in National Football League history not to commit a turnover in the first four games, but committed two interceptions and lost one fumble. On second-and-10, Stafford retreated into the end zone, and Jordan tipped the pass and easily cradled the ball for the first touchdown of his seven-year National Football League career. New Orleans RB Mark Ingram's 51-yard run was the longest given up by the Lions this year. New Orleans sacked Stafford five times, broke up 16 passes and created five turnovers, and Jordan, who destroyed Detroit's beleaguered offensive line all day, made one more big play. It is not clear how serious Tate's injury is, and the Lions are on bye next week.
