Lions Hope For Big Step Forward


The Detroit Lions are desperately hoping to bounce back from their worst season in a decade.

Lions general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia likely need that to happen to save their jobs. Both were retained late last season, but were told by ownership at least contending for a spot in the playoffs was an expectation in 2020.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford is healthy after an injury-shortened season. Stafford has plenty of help around him, particularly at wide receiver with Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola.
