The Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons face off on Sunday in a Week 7 showdown at  Mercedes-Benz Stadium. 

The Detroit Lions started off the season slow but they did come into this game having won two of the last three games. One issue this Lions team has had this season has been blowing leads and two games ago against the New Orleans Saints it happened again. In the last game against the Jacksonville Jaguars the offense got out to another fast start but this time the Lions didn’t blow the lead and that led to a 34-16 victory. On the season the Lions are averaging 26.6 points per game while the defense is giving up 28.6 points per game. Quarterback Matthew Stafford has thrown for 1,240 yards, nine touchdowns, and four interceptions. Adrian Peterson had been the lead running back for this team but in the last game D’Andre Swift seemed to take over the role rushing for 116 yards and two touchdowns. In this game the Lions are going to need the offense to attack a weak defense of the Falcons.

On the other side of this matchup is the Falcons who lost their first five games of the season before winning their last game against the Minnesota Vikings. The defense has been a big issue all season for Atlanta but in the last game against the Minnesota Vikings they were flying around and even though they gave up 23 points against the Vikings, a lot of that came during garbage time. The good news for the Falcons is they have Julio Jones back healthy and he had a big game against the Vikings. In this game the Falcons need to have a big game with their offense because good chances this will be a shootout.
