Welcome to Behind the PFT Headlines, where we save you time by guessing the story based on the provocative headline.
PFT PRESEASON POWER RANKINGS NO. 13: DETROIT LIONS
Get it? Because they’re the Lions and they’re unlucky. Like that one episode of Seinfeld where Jerry always breaks even. If things don’t get better for Detroit they should definitely start doing the opposite of what they’d normally do. It worked for George!
FITZGERALD: UNTIL WE GET A QB, MEGATRON IS A BETTER PICK THAN ME
How does the underside of that bus taste, Misters Skelton and Kolb? And here we thought Larry Fitzgerald was supposed to be such a great teammate. Hmm, seems like we’ve misjudged you, Larry. Tsk tsk tsk.

DEZ BRYANT MENTOR: “HE LOVES HIS MOM TO DEATH”
Hey, he said it, not us. [throws up hands]
REDSKINS SIGN JOSH LERIBEUS TOO

That’s what some consumer advocacy organizations must be wondering this week. Ed. note: Oops, I slipped into Rovell mode there for a minute.
