The Lions have struggled to stop teams from throwing the ball successfully. Quarterbacks are averaging 268.5 yards and a quarterback rating of 101.5 compared to the NFL average rating of 89.2.

Will Justin Fields be able to take advantage of Detroit’s weak pass defense? Over the last three games, he is averaging 150 yards per game and a quarterback rating of 103.7. The Lions will offer an excellent opportunity for Fields to have his second 200+ yard passing game this season. — Nate Atkins
