Defense, Golladay star as Lions surge past Cardinals

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Scott Tolzien is sacked by Los Angeles Rams linebacker Matt Longacre during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Sept. 10 2017 in Los Angeles

The 35-23 win at Ford Field helps the Lions get started on the right foot. Abdullah will be joined by fellow running back Theo Riddick, who also was out with an injury majority of the season. With Johnson struggling to find room, the team turned to Carson Palmer, but the veteran quarterback has two interceptions and no touchdowns.

There is nothing like a potential NFC Playoff preview in Week 1 of the National Football League season, and that is exactly what we are going to get when the Arizona Cardinals take on the Detroit Lions.

The Lions defense will work hard defending the Cardinals. After a 25-yard return set the Lions up inside Arizona territory, Stafford steered the offense 42 yards in 11 plays, finding Marvin Jones in the end zone on a broken play for a six-yard score.




The teams briefly traded punts, but as the Lions lined up to boot it out of their own end zone, punter Kasey Redfern dropped the snap and was forced to scramble.

Football is back. The Arizona Cardinals will kickoff the 2017 season in Detroit this Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. Arizona time.

The Lions offense responded by stalling out again as the game looked to be slipping away, before the defense delivered yet another game-altering turnover. Arizona may have one of the more balanced rosters in the NFC, though they know their window is closing with some of the older players on their team. And the biggest question of the day, will Kenny Golladay see targets? That led to a 38-yard touchdown that ultimately was the difference in the game. When he high-points a ball like that, there's nothing a defensive back can do.
