ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have a losing record, and one of the best teams in the NFL is coming to town.
And the Lions won't be at full strength when they face the Los Angeles Rams this weekend.
Detroit put wide receiver Marvin Jones on injured reserve Monday after he missed the past two games with a knee injury. Jones' absence leaves the Detroit receiving corps down another player. The Lions traded Golden Tate earlier this season.
DETROIT (AP) — Long before Matthew Stafford's two interceptions in the fourth quarter, the Detroit Lions looked limited offensively.
DETROIT (AP) — Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is out of the lineup and Chase Daniel is in against the Detroit Lions.
Trubisky had been doubtful to play Thursday due to a shoulder injury.
The 32-year-old Daniel is making his third career start. He had thrown just three passes over four years entering the Thanksgiving Day game.
The Lions previously ruled out rookie running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) and wide receiver Marvin Jones (knee) with injuries.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have promoted wide receiver Andy Jones from the practice squad.
Detroit made the move because it will be without injured receiver Marvin Jones on Sunday at home against the Carolina Panthers .
Andy Jones was previously activated in Week 9 and played against the Minnesota Vikings. He has been on practice squads with the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have ruled wide receiver Marvin Jones out of Sunday's game against Carolina because of a knee injury.
It will be only the second missed game for Jones in the past three-plus seasons. Panthers receiver Torrey Smith will also miss the game with a knee injury.
Detroit tight end Michael Roberts (shoulder) and defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson (ankle) are also out. Defensive linemen Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) and Damon Harrison (shoulder) are questionable.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The last time the Detroit Lions entered their open date with a losing record, they fired the general manager.
This year, the break in the schedule has been a bit quieter.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Kenny Golladay is making quite an impression on his fellow receivers in Detroit.
The second-year wideout had four catches for 98 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Lions' 31-23 victory over Green Bay. He also had a touchdown called back because of a penalty.
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.
DETROIT (AP) — Mason Crosby didn't have any excuses Sunday afternoon.
The Green Bay Packers kicker, who had never missed three field goals in a game despite spending 12 seasons at Lambeau Field, missed four and an extra point in a 31-23 loss to the Detroit Lions.
"I don't usually get this much attention unless I've done something really good or really bad," Crosby told a crowd of reporters after the game. "This one is unfortunately really bad."
DETROIT (AP) — New England wide receiver Josh Gordon is inactive against the Detroit Lions on Sunday night, delaying his debut with the Patriots.
Gordon was listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. He was limited in practice after being acquired from the Cleveland Browns.
New England safety Patrick Chung and defensive end Trey Flowers are inactive because of concussions.
DETROIT LIONS (9-7)
New faces: Coach Matt Patricia, RB LeGarrette Blount, RB Kerryon Johnson, TE Luke Willson, C Frank Ragnow, DT Sylvester Williams, LB Christian Jones, LB Devon Kennard.
Key losses: Coach Jim Caldwell, TE Eric Ebron, DT Haloti Ngata, LB Tahir Whitehead.
Strengths: Passing game. QB Matthew Stafford threw for 1,000-plus yards to WR Marvin Jones and WR Golden Tate last year and has pass-catching RB Theo Riddick. All-Pro CB Darius Slay among NFL's best in coverage.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Darius Slay lost his footing in coverage and landed on the grass. He limped off the field, trying to keep weight off his right leg.
The Detroit Lions cornerback was evaluated on the sideline and after rubbing and pointing to his right knee, he returned to practice Wednesday.
Was it scary, possibly getting injured early in training camp?
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — With their playoff hopes teetering, the Detroit Lions have plenty at stake when they play at Cincinnati this weekend.
The fact that receiver Marvin Jones will be facing his old team barely registers.
"I'm just going to see a couple of friends that I have there," Jones said Wednesday. "But other than that, it's no significance."
CINCINNATI (AP) — Reaching the postseason was an annual thing when receiver Marvin Jones Jr. played four seasons with the Bengals.
He's returning to Cincinnati for a game that his current team must win to have any chance of a playoff berth.
The Lions (8-6) seem to have everything in their favor.
They're facing a down-and-out team that barely showed up for its past two games.
DETROIT (AP) — Matthew Stafford's latest attempt at a fourth-quarter comeback fizzled — and now his health is a concern too.
Stafford played on after appearing to injure his right ankle Thursday, but the Lions didn't have a first down on either of their final two drives in a 30-23 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
DETROIT (AP) — Case Keenum threw for two touchdowns and ran for a score all in the first half to give the Minnesota Vikings a double-digit lead and they went on to beat the Detroit Lions 30-23 Thursday.
The Vikings (9-2) took a huge step toward winning the NFC North, taking a three-game lead over the second-place Lions.
Detroit (6-5) made mistakes in every phase of the game and Minnesota took advantage.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Detroit Lions haven't lost a game against the NFC North, and they can really tighten the division race if they win this week.
Matt Prater kicked a tiebreaking 52-yard field goal, Matthew Stafford threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns and the Lions hung on to beat the Chicago Bears 27-24 on Sunday.
Winning in daily fantasy isn't always about finding contrarian picks. Yes, you want to differentiate your lineup to increase your odds at winning in tournaments, but you can't ignore the studs that are still worth their high price tags. Here are the studs to consider for Week 10:
MATTHEW STAFFORD, QB, Detroit ($6,800 DraftKings/$8,200 FanDuel)
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Eager to end a three-game losing streak, the Detroit Lions picked a tough place to make a stand — Lambeau Field in a Monday night game against the Green Bay Packers.
Matthew Stafford delivered with his sharpest performances of the season.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Matthew Stafford put on a quarterback clinic for the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field.
Aaron Rodgers could only watch from the sideline.
Stafford passed for 361 yards and two touchdowns to Marvin Jones, and the Lions snapped a three-game losing streak with a 30-17 win on Monday night over the offensively challenged Green Bay Packers.
"Matt (made) some great throws ... I just did what I love to do — go out there and get them," Jones said.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — So far, so good for Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions. Eli Manning and the New York Giants are heading in the opposite direction.
Stafford threw for two touchdowns, rookie Jamal Agnew broke the game open with an 88-yard punt return and the Lions beat the Giants 24-10 on Monday night.
New faces: OT Rick Wagner, OG T.J. Lang, OT Greg Robinson, DE Cornelius Washington, rookie LB Jarrad Davis, rookie CB Teez Tabor.
Key losses: OT Riley Reiff, OG Larry Warford, LB DeAndre Levy, DE Kerry Hyder, WR Anquan Boldin.
DETROIT (AP) — Matthew Stafford threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Jones in the second quarter, and the Detroit Lions shut down Christian Hackenberg and the New York Jets 16-6 in a preseason game Saturday night.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Kenny Golladay was an average-sized, late-developing football player while growing up on Chicago's South Side, where North Dakota coaches came and offered him a scholarship.
No one else wanted him.
Golladay, who was a 5-foot-11, 175-pound wide receiver back then, accepted his only option and shot up about 5 inches over two years in the northern Great Plains.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have all of their draft picks under contract now that third-round selection Kenny Golladay signed Monday.
The wide receiver was the only Detroit draft pick who didn't sign before the team's rookie minicamp last month.
The 6-foot-4, 213-pound Northern Illinois standout has an opportunity to be the Lions' No. 3 receiver this season behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have waived tight end Brandon Pettigrew from the reserve/non-football injury list.
The team announced the move Friday.
Pettigrew was drafted in the first round by the Lions in 2009 and had some productive seasons as a pass catcher, but he tore his left anterior cruciate ligament late last year and hasn't played at all this season.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have ruled out linebacker Tahir Whitehead against the New Orleans Saints.
Whitehead will miss the game Sunday at New Orleans because of a knee injury.
The Lions signed wide receiver TJ Jones from their practice squad, activated Armonty Bryant and released running back Justin Forsett and cornerback Johnthan Banks on Saturday.
