It’s the penultimate game of the season for the Detroit Lions, and perhaps not one more emblematic of how this season has gone. The Lions will be down their No. 1 quarterback, wide receiver, tight end, center, right guard, defensive end, defensive tackle, linebacker, and cornerback.
But, hey, they’ve been without a lot of these guys all season, and they’ve managed to play some seriously competitive football all years.
This week, they’ll have to test their might against a Seattle Seahawks team that has nothing to play for but pride. It’s an odd sight to see the Seahawks at 5-10 under Pete Carroll, because they’ve literally never had double-digit losses with him at the helm. But emotions could be running high in Seattle, as the future of Russell Wilson is on everybody’s mind in Seattle. Could this be his last home game as the Seahawks starter? Will Seattle look completely different the next time they take the home field?
We’ll be providing live updates from Week 17 here.
