Arif and Dusty bring on Ty Schalter, who has written for FiveThirtyEight, Vice Sports and also for the Lions Wire to preview the upcoming game against the Detroit Lions. We talk about one of the most underrated secondaries in the NFL and a team prone to wild games, as well as how the Vikings match up with them.

- Schalter writes a number of stories for the Lions Wire and that includes this update indicating that Jarrad Davis is back at practice
- The Lions are a top-five team in DVOA and fourth in USA Today’s power ranking.
- Schalter’s most recent article at Vice Sports celebrates the NFL’s overtime rules over that of college’s. I don’t know about that.
- I alluded to one of his excellent articles at the Bleacher Report on the history of the Redskins nickname—here it is. I strongly recommend it.
- Here’s my piece at Zone Coverage on the anthem protests
- I also recorded a podcast with Ben Natan on the subject.
Here’s the video Schalter referenced, and the original tweet here.
