Week 3: vs Green Bay Packers
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Reggie Bush has not seen a lot of action so far this year - 15/41/0 rushing with 8/55/0 receiving - while Joique Bell has been more utilized (25/87/1 rushing with 7/66/0) neither back has been able to rush for more than 3.5 yards per carry. To date, the Lions are 28th in the NFL with 146 yards rushing as a team. The Packers' rush D is not good - last week, the Jets posted 37/146/2 rushing against them, after Seattle crushed the Packers' defensive front in Week One with 37/207/2 rushing during the Seahawks 36-16 win. To date, Green Bay is ranked 31st in the NFL averaging 176.5 yards rushing allowed per game, and have allowed two rushing TDs per game. The Lions' backs have a good matchup here - hopefully their mates on the offensive line will open up some decent holes for Bush and Bell this weekend.
