Can you talk about facing the Lions again this Saturday?

“They are a good football team and obviously a big challenge for us. I think their defensive line is the strength of that team. It will be a big challenge and something we will look forward to.”

What sticks out to you from the December 4 game against Detroit?

“If I remember the game correctly, I think that game was close and we kind of broke away late. It’s a strong defense, certainly with their front seven. With (QB Matthew Stafford) playing the way he is, he went over 5,000 yards yesterday. They are very explosive. Our defense has done a good job these last seven or eight weeks keeping teams from scoring. They haven’t given up more than 20 points in a while. It will be another big challenge because I know they have a lot of good players on (offense). It is always harder playing someone the second time. They will certainly have a few new wrinkles for us.”

Can you talk about Lions DT Ndamukong Suh missing the Week 13 game against the Saints and the challenge he will pose in your first time facing him?

“With the front being their strength, when you lose who I think is the best player off that front, obviously it’s tough to lose people in those areas where you are strong. The inside guys when we played them last time are all good players. There are a lot of guys on that front that don’t have the name recognition but are really good players. He adds another dimension to them. He brings more depth and he is an explosive player and a guy that is going to be a challenge for us to handle.”

Full interview.
