The storyline
Detroit is trying to mimic the Jets' renaissance behind a first-round quarterback and a younger, defensive-minded head coach. The Lions aren't there yet, but have a chance to send a message here against a team that might be looking a tad bit beyond them.

Why you should watch
Darrelle Revis against Megatron. That should be fun. Of course, Rex Ryan could go with a heavy dose of the longer Antonio Cromartie against him as well, particularly in the red zone. Oh, and this Ndamukong Suh kid is the real deal.
