Game Preview

Potholes are becoming a common theme as the Detroit Lions map their route to the playoffs and their first division title in 30 years.

The Lions control the NFC North but must clear more obstacles to reach their desired postseason destination. They host the surging Denver Broncos on Saturday night with plenty at stake. The Lions can clinch a playoff spot with a win and multiple possible combinations of results in Sunday and Monday games.

Detroit (9-4), which leads second-place Minnesota by two games in the division race, lost two of its past three games and even the Lions’ three victories since Halloween have been on the scary side.
