You heard it here first



The Lions break the streak tomorrow (later today) with a win over the Redskins, 20-12. Washington fails to score a TD for the second consecutive week and the Lions snap that ugly 19-game slide. Stafford and Co. will relieve the people of Detroit that they haven’t won a game in over two Christmases.


Also: G-Men 28, Schmucs 10

Eli breaks the 300-yard plateau and tosses three TDs; Jacobs gains about 70 yards and Bradshaw eclipses the century mark with a score. Manningham racks up 150 and a pair of TDs, while (the real) Steve Smith adds 130 and a touch.

The defense holds up without Tuck, but TB gets a couple of late scores  to spoil the shutout. Expect the Good Guys to send the Bucs to their seventh-straight loss (dating back to last season). These clowns never recovered from the beating the Giants laid on them in the playoffs a couple of years back; don’t expect a good game, it’ll be over by half as the G-Men move to 3-0.

Elsewhere in the NFC East: Cowgirls over Panthers on Monday night, 34-13. Dallas bounces back from the Giants debacle behind a good game from Romo. Don’t be impressed, though, Carolina’s trash.

Iggs over Queefs, 42-14, on Sunday. Expect a big day from Vick; Mike’s going to be breaking ankles on Sunday…as opposed to grabbing them.
