First Byte is back and has the background on the Detroit Lions’ upcoming opponent. This week, the 3-6 Detroit Lions host the 6-3 Carolina Panthers. So this week, First Byte hosts Cat Scratch Reader’s author Brian Beversluis to break down Detroit’s NFC foe.
Beversluis brings in valuable insight as to the Panthers’ inconsistent year thus far. Is the defense good or bad? Why is this team so much different at home than on the road? What the hell happened against the Steelers last week? Beversluis answers them all on this week’s episode.
