(WJBK) - FOX 2's Woody Woodriffe was joined by Bob Wojnowski & Pat Caputo Sunday night on the SportsWorks roundtable as they talked about the tough loss by the Lions in New Orleans Sunday.

Michigan State and Michigan were next on the rundown after their road wins over the weekend. The panel talked about Michigan's struggles at quarterback and the many concerns in Ann Arbor.

They also brought up how strong the Spartans defense is.
Next on the docket were the Pistons. The guys talked how Andre Drummond's free throw shooting is improving and wondered if he can keep it up in the regular season. They also talked how important Reggie Jackson is, even though he is sharing time right now with Ish Smith. The Red Wings were next up as the crew broke down their early hot start and how the Red Wings will go as far as Jimmy Howard, Henrik Zetterberg, Mike Green and Niklas Kronwall will take them among others. The panel also cautioned expectations since the Red Wings started out hot a year ago as well.
Lions Game Night then came on as the crew went more in depth into the Lions loss to the New Orleans Saints as they go into the bye week.
