The Detroit Lions control their own fate in the NFC Playoff picture and simply need to win out to win their first division title in the modern era. The Baltimore Ravens are similarly fighting for a playoff spot and need to win out to have a chance at not only a playoff berth but possibly a division title after a shaky start to the season.
Both of these teams are hungry for a win and both are looking for their x-factor in tonight’s game. For the Lions, that has been Reggie Bush so far as he not only was activate for tonight’s game, but continued to show that he’s a different kind of player at home inside Ford Field. Bush tore off a big run to get the Lions on the board early against the Ravens.
The Ravens run defense is among one of the league’s best, but Bush is a lethal pass catching threat and he’s already shown the Ravens they’ll have their hands full with him tonight.
