NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:
Why this game is intriguing: You'd never have predicted before the season that the high-powered, talent-filled Detroit Lions would be the team in this matchup grasping at faint playoff hopes, hoping to mount a comeback in the fourth quarter of the season (like they've done in so many games). But that's reality. The news around Detroit has been dominated by Ndamukong Suh's alleged kick to the private parts of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub, an incident that has overshadowed three straight losses and expectations unfulfilled for the league's best passing offense. As for the Indianapolis Colts, they've quietly motored on with an impossibly young team while head coach Chuck Pagano battles cancer.
