5 Things the Detroit Lions Must Correct During the Bye Week

Even the 7-0 Green Bay Packers have things to correct.

So it stands to reason that the Detroit Lions, at 6-2, also have some things to clean up. Not all of these things can be taken care of with just a week off—but those that can will certainly require attention before the Lions start the second half of the season.

The Lions have a brutal schedule, featuring teams with a combined record of 35-24. And that includes the Minnesota Vikings and Carolina Panthers, who, despite their 2-6 records, have played tough so far. 

The Lions will also play the undefeated Packers twice, as well as the dangerous Saints, the talented-but-inconsistent Raiders and the Chargers in the second-to-last game of the season (read: when San Diego will be at its peak).

And starting off all the madness is a road game at Chicago—where Matthew Stafford has yet to walk out under his own power.

Yes—there are some things the Lions need to address in the bye week.
