(unfortunate to say because I have Romo on fantasy this year
, but I did pick up Eli manning this week who did amazing against the eagles with that elite secondary.)
I can definitely see the Lions pulling out a W if they can get to Romo early.
Fairley will probably be out (actually I think it's been confirmed that he won't play), but Corey Williams isn't exactly a bad player.
Cunningham has been surprisingly conservative with the blitzes this year, so it's mainly just been the front four pressuring QBs. Even so, we're still getting to them regularly. Once we see more reason for having confidence in the new LB corps and secondary, expect to see a lot more damage to opposing QBs.
