On the surface, this is a game that doesn't have an awful lot of intrigue behind it.
Two teams with a combined record of 4-10 will face off in a game that might be the lowest-rated of the week, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have some storylines.
The Lions may be 3-4, but they're also winners of two of their last three.
The Jaguars have fought hard against good teams, and the Lions are too schizophrenic to be trusted. Despite how it may look on paper, this should be a close game.
And if that's not enough for you, keep an eye on Mike Thomas. Thomas was shipped off to the Lions from the Jaguars this week, and it will be interesting to see just how much he gets involved in the offense.
It must be a strange feeling to enter a week in the NFL expecting to play against a team, only to actually be playing for them by that Sunday.
You can catch this game at 1:00 p.m. on Fox...unless you're in the Jacksonville area. Then it might get a little dicey.
But I can tell you for certain that this live blog will not be blacked out in your area.
Current Score: Lions 24, Jaguars 0 (4Q)
