The Detroit Lions entered the game against the Arizona Cardinals looking for their 1st win and will do the same again next Sunday against the Chicago Bears.  The Lions looked good early on taking a 7-0 lead in the 1st quarter and only trailing 17-7 at the half.   Arizona would see the return of Saginaw native Lamarr Woodley now in his 9th season playing linebacker for the Cardinals.  Woodley would play a strong game in front of family and friends at Ford Field.  

Lions quarterback Matt Stafford continued to struggle this season while throwing two interceptions in the first half.  The Lions continued to make turnovers and costly penalties through out the game.   The fans even starting booing loudly for the Lions in the third period as the score became 35-7 Cardinals.   When Head Coach Jim Caldwell put in back up quarterback Dan Orlovsky the fans went wild.   He would play a meaningless 1 1/2 quarters in piling up some yards.  

The Lions now drop to 0-5 on the season and will struggle to get a few wins in the remaining 11 games in 2015.   One could go on and on what they perceive what is troubling the team this season.   Way to many mistakes from a veteran team.   The Lions now will have the Chicago Bears come to Ford Field next Sunday and that seems like the Lions best chance for a victory.   They continue to draw the faithful fans to Ford Field game after game.
