The Scouting Report
Preparing a pro football team is a bit like mobilizing an army, and Detroit’s 2014 squad gets its first taste of battle on August 9. Over the past few years—much to the chagrin of opposing defenses and referees who ate too soon before kickoff—Detroit has emerged as a fast-paced offensive juggernaut; last season, they tossed spirals all over the field, racking up the third-most passing yards in the league and 392.1 yards of total offense per game. They’ll rely on the same fan-friendly style this season as they seek their second playoff berth in four years.
