Matthew Stafford injured a hamstring and an ankle in last Sunday's 27-24 home loss to Carolina, but is likely to play this week. They're now 2-2 and it looks like things are starting to click.
"Bottom line is he is a great player and I know this: You go into a game against a team like this and a quarterback like this, you know that the game's never over", Brees said.
The Lions injury report has no shortage of players heading into this week. There are still some mixed emotions over Adrian Peterson's trade to the Arizona Cardinals. "Previous year our defence played extremely well, got three turnovers I think, and on offence, played good enough". This move had been brewing ever since Peterson's so-called "spat" with HC Sean Payton on the sideline Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. No, really. Of course that's excluding the first two debacles.

If you're looking for a premier CB/WR matchup this week, look no further than the battle between Detroit CB Darius Slay and New Orleans WR Michael Thomas. "They got guys that can get after the passer, so they've got what you need to have a good defense".
Through four games, New Orleans ranks fourth in the league in total offense, averaging 371 yards per game, and the team has yet to commit a turnover. I believe Detroit will try and establish the run in this one, keeping Drew Brees and that explosive offense on the sideline. He presents big-play ability, and in a potentially high scoring shootout, Abdullah could be in store for a big play or two. "That's what you always know when you go against a guy like this". Im not buying into the Saints defense just yet, and with Matt Stafford at QB, its a good bet that the Lions will rally in the 4th quarter if they are down. We certainly have a lot to prove now being that I think that we've turned the corner this year. New Orleans finally shipped Adrian Peterson out of town, which will allow for more touches from rookie sensation RB Alvin Kamara and RB Mark Ingram. He put in a full week of practice, though, and is fully expected to play.
The Detroit Lions head to the Big Easy this Sunday to square off with the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. He was then with the Lions previous year and remembers how confident Detroit became when the defense forced the Saints into a three-and-out to open the game because it quickly quieted the crowd.
