On paper the Detroit Lions should have an easy time defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field this Sunday. Fortunately for the Jags, NFL games aren't played on paper. Their record is bad, but they can be a dangerous team. Just ask the Green Bay Packers.
The Jaguars ultimately lost, but they gave the Packers all they could handle for three quarters. The Lions will try and take them out of the game much earlier.
They've struggled to do that thus far. Detroit has been outscored by their opponents in the first half of every game this season. They might be hitting their stride though.
The Lions are coming off an impressive victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Their offense was clicking as quarterback Matthew Stafford completed two or more passes to seven different receivers and was 12-16 on third down.
One win doesn't make up for seven weeks of disappointment though. The Lions will need to string together several good performances to get their season back on track.
It all starts in Jacksonville. Here are 10 keys for the Lions to get the victory on Sunday.
