TV: Ch. 9 (100.3-FM, 1130-AM)
Line: Lions by 4 1/2
• The Lions can move the ball, ranking second in the league in total offense and No. 1 in passing. Their attack didn't miss a beat when Shaun Hill replaced an injured Matthew Stafford (leg/hip) at QB last week.
• In a 44-41 overtime loss to Tennessee on Sunday, the Lions racked up 583 yards of total offense, the second most in team history, with Calvin Johnson getting 164 receiving yards.
• On the other hand, Detroit became the first team in NFL history to allow five scoring plays of 60 or more yards in the same game -- a 65-yard punt return, a 105-yard kickoff return, a 72-yard fumble return and passing TDs of 61 and 71 yards.
Suh had 10 sacks as a rookie, but only four last season. In three games this year he has two sacks, one each in the first two games; the Lions failed to sack Titans QB Jake Locker on 42 pass attempts last week. Suh has two sacks in three games vs. Minnesota.
• On Detroit's 1-2 record: "You definitely want to be playing your best football at the end of the season. The last few Super Bowl champions have played extremely well when it mattered most."
• On Detroit's lack of pass rush vs. Tennessee: "I can only speak for myself, but I was inconsistent in getting my pass rush [going]. It's a matter of being more consistent."
• On preparing for WR Jerome Simpson: "It adds a different dynamic to it for sure, because usually after a few games ... you understand what guys' roles are in the offense. But we have a good scouting report on him."
• On Vikings RB Adrian Peterson: "If he's not 100 percent, he's 98 or 99. I think he looks very good. I don't know if there's a whole lot of difference in his game. He looks quick."
• On bouncing back from last week's OT loss: "You've got to be resilient for 16 games. Teams that can do that are successful."
