Lions’ Slay relishing matchup with pass-happy Falcons

Allen Park — Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay still has the infectious enthusiasm of a child, but after years of mentoring from polished veterans Glover Quin and Rashean Mathis, Slay has learned to tone down his exuberant confidence, which could easily be perceived as immaturity and arrogance.  Don

James Hawkins of The Detroit News breaks down Sunday’s Lions-Falcons game at Ford Field (1 p.m. FOX/760 WJR). Falcons to watch ■ Julio Jones, WR: Arguably the league’s best receiver, his combination of size, strength, speed and athleticism is something that defenses simply can’t match up

No neck pain leaves Zimmermann with dash of optimism

Detroit — All he and the Tigers can do is hope. They hope those neck demons flee during the coming offseason. They hope he can heal, fully, ahead of February and the start of spring camp. They hope, most of all, that a man only 31 years old, with a sterling past and three years to go on his Tigers contract

Tigers bullpen clobbered in loss to Twins

Detroit – This could be the way it goes over the Tigers’ final-days calendar. It has, in fact, been this way for some time now. The steady pitching blowouts. The parade of people to the mound, which would include a pitching coach and a manager who have all but tromped personal pathways from the dugout

Daily duels in practice help Stafford, Quin and Lions

Allen Park — For the second consecutive season, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is being mentioned as a potential MVP candidate. The sample size is ridiculously small, two games, but he’s currently considered a favorite for the award, along with New England’s Tom Brady and Green Bay’s

Leyland on Tigers’ rebuild: ‘Growing pains’ are coming

Detroit — Jim Leyland managed a World Series champion in 1997, and managed a 108-loss team the following season. So he’s all too familiar with both sides of the equation, a juggernaut and a rebuilding team, from his time with the then-Florida Marlins. Obviously, the contender is more fun. But the

Resurgent Ansah heads Lions’ revived defensive front

Allen Park — The fact that the Lions’ defensive line put pressure on the Giants and quarterback Eli Manning isn’t much of a surprise. But getting to him five times was something of a shocker, especially with the questions about whether Ziggy Ansah could get back to his production of 2015. Ansah

Lions Lowdown: Ford Field will be rocking vs. Falcons

Ford Field should be a big home-field advantage on Sunday when the Lions (2-0) face the NFC defending champion Falcons (2-0) at 1 p.m. “The crowd is going to be jacked-up,” Detroit News columnist John Niyo said. “You buy yourself a home-field advantage when you’re 2-0.” You can
