After a long day of football, with some surprises and some games that were not surprising, the last game of the day features the Detroit Lions facing off against the San Francisco 49ers in what is the first game between the teams since the handshake fracas last October.
How will the teams and coaches react to each other? We shall see. This game might have playoff implications, as the 49ers and Lions both have aspirations to make the playoffs in 2012.
