For the second time in five days, the Buffalo Bills (7-3) are playing in Detroit. The snowstorm raged the area to the point that the Bills migrated a week early to Detroit, in a neutral site game against the Cleveland Browns.

It came down to an onside kick attempt, but the Bills ended their two-game losing streak. Just in time for a short week turnaround for Thanksgiving Day. Staying in Detroit to play the Lions (4-6).

Despite their record, the Lions need to be taken seriously. They’re in the middle of a three-game win streak over the Giants, Bears and Packers. Make no mistake, this is a trap game.

Turning the ball over only once, while causing seven turnovers on defense in that time span. Allowing only nineteen points per game, despite 902 total yards.

With the combination of Jamaal Williams and D’Andre Swift leading the offense with 941 rushing yards (4.61 yards per carry) and 15 touchdowns.

Despite the Buffalo Bills fielding the seventh best run defense in the league, they have allowed 609 yards on the ground since the bye week.

On the other side of the ball, the Lions are being lead by a trio of rookie defensive stars in Aidan Hutchinson (5.5 sacks and 16 QB pressures), Kerby Joseph (three interceptions, five bass breakups and two forced fumbles) and Malcolm Rodriguez (58 tackles and five tackles for loss).

Going up against QB Josh Allen and his still surging MVP odds. The Bills can’t afford to play this game light. They played better against the Browns, but still too close enough that they could have given the game up.

A motivated, hot team like the Lions will not relinquish the way Cleveland did. These are not the same ol’ Lions.

If the Buffalo Bills want to avoid Thanksgiving fatigue, they need to consider Detroit a real threat.
