The last time these teams met, it meant something.
That's not (entirely) a knock on the preseason; it was the Lions' second win of a three-game winning streak that put them in the playoffs for the first time in over a decade.
The stakes are considerably lower this time around, but considering that it's the third preseason game, there will be plenty of takeaways as the starters play close to a full, game-planned half of football.
As a primer, Lions fans, check out my preview of things to watch for in this game.
