Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals: Beat writers make predictions
Dave Birkett and Bob McManaman share thoughts, predictions on Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals, coming Sept. 27, 2020, in Glendale, Ariz. Filmed Sept. 22.
Jeff Okudah will make another start at cornerback Sunday for the Detroit Lions — and draw another one of the NFL’s best receivers for his matchup.
The Lions downgraded starting cornerback Desmond Trufant to out for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Trufant left the Lions‘ season-opening loss to the Chicago Bears with a hamstring injury and missed last week’s loss to the Green Bay Packers.
