Panic time: David Johnson fantasy owners react to wrist injury

Chicago Bears quarterback Mike Glennon throws during the first half of an NFL football game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday Sept. 10 2017 in Chicago

The Detroit Lions opened their regular season at home on Sunday, September 10th, with a hard-fought victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Less than two weeks after signing the largest contract in National Football League history, Stafford's regular season got off to the ugliest start possible on Sunday when he threw a pick-six to Arizona's Justin Bethel.

The Detroit Lions got blown out by the champions in the first quarter 24-0. That led to a 38-yard touchdown that ultimately was the difference in the game. Abdullah will be joined by fellow running back Theo Riddick, who also was out with an injury majority of the season. His favorite target? Rookie wide receiver Kenny Golladay, who caught four of Stafford's passes for 69 yards and two second-half scores. The Lions were in scoring range, so the swing in momentum here was huge.




Johnson was held in check Sunday, finishing with just 23 yards on 11 carries. This is an area the Lions' must improve on moving forward. Arizona may have one of the more balanced rosters in the NFC, though they know their window is closing with some of the older players on their team.

In the third quarter, the Cardinals offense-which had mustered just one field goal through 30 minutes of football-finally warmed up, with quarterback Carson Palmer stringing together two long drives, even as star tailback David Johnson watched from the sidelines with an injury. Defensive backs Glover Quin, Tavon Wilson and Miles Killebrew all came away with picks. The Lions have a restructured offense, and the focus will be their running game.

But Lions fans have also seen plenty of fourth-quarter comebacks, and quarterback Matthew Stafford technically delivered a critical one.
