The Detroit Lions will be coming into Week 4 with the third-best offense in total yards, averaging 409 per game.
They are also third in rushing yards (170.3) and second in points per game.

Their absences will be a big blow to Detroit’s cause because they lead the team in receiving and rushing yards, respectively.
St. Brown has 23 receptions for 253 yards and three touchdowns through Week 3.
His best game so far came in Week 2 when he had nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns against the Washington Commanders.
In that game, he became the first player in NFL history to have six consecutive regular-season games with at least eight receptions and a touchdown.
Before that, he finished with eight receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown versus the Philadelphia Eagles.
St. Brown had six catches for 73 yards against the Minnesota Vikings last week.
Meanwhile, Swift has 231 rushing yards, 77 receiving yards, and two total touchdowns for the Lions.
He started the season with a 15-carry, 144-yard performance against Philadelphia.
Since then, he had 87 combined rushing yards and zero touchdowns.
However, he had a receiving touchdown in their win over Washington.
