Lions Mailbag: Looking at the future

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Welcome to the almost-midway point of the NFL season.

The Detroit Lions are off next week -- right in the middle of the regular season -- but before the Lions are able to rest up, they have a critical game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at Ford Field.

This week's Mailbag touches on things to watch Sunday, what could happen after the season and holding penalties.
