The Detroit Lions won their third straight game against the Giants at the Meadowlands on Sunday.

Offensive will get a boost in the form of WR DJ Chark returning from an ankle injury. Jared Goff needs all the guns he can get, so hopefully they can get him involved early and often.

The key to the Lions defense will be containing Giants running back Saquon Barkely. If that’s possible, the Lions could be well on their way to that third straight win. If not, it could be a long afternoon.
