FOX Sports' Colin Cowherd: "I would take Detroit +8. Mike Tomlin is not a great favorite coach and Pittsburgh is on a short week. Detroit had the stinker against Philadelphia, but they did outplay Baltimore and the Rams in chunks. And, Goff has had a lot of NFL snaps.

"This is one of the better numbers on the board, so I would take the points."

PICK: Lions (+8 via FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 8 points (or win outright)
