I really don't know what to think about today. The Lions are going to be riding a wave of tremendous momentum--but then, so will the Giants. The Lions haven't lost to the Giants in New York since 1990, but the Lions haven't won on the road in 23 games. The Lions have a great pass rush, but the Giants have a better one. Every reason I can think of for the Lions to have a chance today, the Giants can match--or better.
. . . except one thing: hunger. Drive, passion, the desperate need to win. The Lions' entire season rides on today: a win keeps 2010 on life support; contention is still mathematically possible. With a win, the losing streak snapped, a bye to build off of it, and the return of their quarterback, the Lions--if not realistically playoff-bound--at least have a pulse. Lose today, and the Lions' plug will be pulled.
I can't say I have the unshakable faith in victory that I had last week--but I believe the Lions want it more, need it more--and that gives them a chance.
