Football is back in Detroit as the Lions will host Mitchell Trubisky and the Chicago Bears in an NFC North matchup. The Lions ended the 2019 season 3-12-1 and look to improve on that record despite an unusual offseason created by the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to virus concerns, no fans will be allowed inside Ford Field for at least the first two home games.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford returns after missing the second half of the 2019 season and has some new offensive weapons with the addition of running backs D’Andre Swift and Adrian Peterson.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Lions have a lot of new faces up front and in the secondary. They added cornerback Desmond Trufant and safety Duron Harmon to provide a veteran presence to its young secondary.
If you aren’t familiar with our Madden Sims from the past, it’s really quite simple. Over on our Twitch page, we fire up a game of Madden, adjust the rosters to reflect each team’s current injury situation, then just watch as the computer faces off against the computer. We will not be interfering with the 0s and 1s the computer spits out. We are leaving the Lions’ virtual fate up to the programming at EA Sports. God help us.
If you want to be a part of the fun, things will quite literally kick off at 10 a.m. ET every Saturday morning prior to a Sunday Lions game. All you have to do is go to our Twitch page there, and enjoy the show. I’ll also be there answering any Lions questions you may have, so if you just want to hang out, that’s cool too.
