Lions Vs. Broncos: Detroit Tries To End 2-Game Losing Streak

For more on the Lions, check out Pride of Detroit.

The Detroit Lions opened the 2011 NFL season with five straight wins and were the owners of the longest regular season winning streak (dating back to last season) until their loss to the San Francisco 49ers. After losing to the Atlanta Falcons this past Sunday, the Lions are now the owners of a two-game losing streak.

The Lions will try to put a stop to their mid-season slide on Sunday when they play their first road game in nearly a month. The amazing thing about the Lions is that three of their first four wins came on the road, and yet they dropped two games during a three-game homestand. Now they are back on the road looking to pick up a win before their bye week.

To move to 6-2, the Lions will have to top Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Tebow made his first start of the season this past Sunday and led the Broncos to a comeback victory in overtime over the winless Miami Dolphins. Tebow struggled for most of the game before the comeback began, so I guess the win can be chalked up to the "power of Tebow."

The big question for the Lions this week is who will start at quarterback and running back. Matthew Stafford has an ankle injury and Jahvid Best is still recovering from a concussion. Right now it's too early in the week to tell if Stafford and Best will be able to play, but even if they don't, this is still a game the Lions should and need to win.
