Lions vs. Raiders: Detroit's Biggest Winners and Losers from Preseason Week 3

After Terrelle Pryor went all Matt Flynn on the Detriot Lions secondary in the second half of this preseason contest, it may seem like there are absolutely no positives for the Lions to take from this.

And it's true that the Lions didn't exactly play a particularly sharp game in any facet, which is concerning for one billed as a "dress rehearsal."

But preseason is still preseason. The most concerning thing is getting through them healthy and...oh, that's right. A whole bunch of players went down with injuries as well.

So it wasn't a fun Saturday afternoon for the Lions, who came in likely expecting to play a reasonably sharp half of football, have a nice chat at halftime and spend the rest of the game leisurely watching the kids play ball in the second half.

No, it was a loss by 11 points, a systematic mutilation of the secondary (especially in the second half) and total carnage on the injury front.

And yet I still plan on leading with the good news, so get happy. It's still preseason.
