Good morning and ROOOOOOAAARRRR!!!!
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Some games, the Pittsburgh Steelers have looked like their defense of old, holding teams to a touchdown or less, capable of flustering opposing offenses.
Other times, the Steelers have been horrific -- giving up 55 points to New England and allowing 24.2 points a game.
"You have to take the good with the bad," Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford said. "See maybe what might have worked against them and what didn't work so well and why teams did that, whether it be their own execution or what the Steelers were doing to them.
"There's a lot that goes into it. There's some mental gymnastics and you just have got to go in there and piece together a good game plan, which I'm sure we will, and go in there and try to play well."
Detroit hasn't won at Pittsburgh since 1955, although that is a skewed stat because the Lions have played there only nine times since, tying once and losing the last eight games.
