Detroit is coming off of a much needed bye week while the Miami Dolphins are fresh off of a 37-0 shut out over the San Diego Chargers, so it is hard to tell which team is truly feeling more refreshed.

The Lions have a chance to make some serious noise in the North as they boast the league’s best defensive line in one of the weaker divisions in the NFC. A win over the Dolphins could put them up near Green Bay. Miami has quietly been one of the best teams in football for the last three weeks. They can continue that by coming up big in Detroit.
The Lions will likely have all of their offensive weapons ready to go this week. Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush should both be out on the field to start the game and their appearance should help QB Matt Stafford a ton. Look to see Detroit take to the air early and often.

The Dolphins may be without their steady running back Lamar Miller and if he is out then the focus of the defense will be QB Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill has shown scrambling ability and the willingness to go deep, he just hasn't been connecting at a high clip.
