Good morning and RRROOOOOAAARRRR!!!!!

Week 9 in one game from being completed and Detroit, at 5-3 coming off of its bye, is in the middle of a playoff race.

If the playoffs started today, however, the Lions would be watching from home. While eight weeks is an eternity in the NFL, Carolina possesses the tiebreaker over Detroit due to having a better conference record.

For now.

And I'll have more on this later today in a post we'll start having weekly tracking the Lions playoff picture, but Detroit is right in the middle of all of it.

Now on to links from the Interwebs after a quiet bye weekend for the Lions:
