Detroit @ Arizona
Team Totals: Cardinals 30, Lions 24.5
It may feel uncomfortable after Detroit’s slow start, but this is a green-light buy window for Lions skill players with their schedule opening up considerably going forward. It begins in Week 3’s second highest-totaled game with Kenny Golladay returning to rejuvenate OC Darrell Bevell’s vertical passing attack. Matthew Stafford led all 2019 quarterbacks in 20-plus-yard pass percentage (22%), but that rate has fallen to 10.7% in two games sans Golladay. Stafford tore up Cardinals DC Vance Joseph’s unit for 385 yards, three touchdowns, and 22 rushing yards when these teams met in Week 1 last season. … The Lions maintained a frustrating three-man RBBC in last week’s loss to Green Bay. D’Andre Swift led the way in touches (10) and targets (5) but played one snap fewer (19) than Kerryon Johnson (20), who punched in a first-quarter goal-line score.
