Raiders vs. Lions: Key to a Raiders Vicotry Could be Tied to Suh Laces

After missing two games, Detroit Lions star defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh will be back in time to face the Oakland Raiders this weekend. Fortunately for the Raiders, news of how to stop the massive talent has leaked just in time for the Raiders to implement it into their game plan. Stopping the defensive wonder is easier than one might think. Just untie his shoe laces.

A report surfaced this week that the offensive line coach for the Green Bay Packers instructed one of his offensive lineman to untie Donkey Kong Suh's laces every time they wound up in a pile after a play. Normally, such playground antics would not be able to throw a professional athlete off of his game. That being said, professional athletes are not normally as prone to child like tantrums as Donkey Kong Suh is.

After stomping on Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith in their Thanksgiving night game, Suh can be seen talking to coaches on the sideline and lifting his leg as he explains something. It was previously assumed that he was explaining the stomp, however, perhaps he was telling on Dietrich-Smith for untying his shoes.

While this story is a ton of fun and really entertaining to think about, there is actually something serious that the Raiders should take from it. Suh has the temper of, well, Donkey Kong. It does not appear to take much to get him to make a poor decision. If the Raiders can get into Suh's head on Sunday, they might be able to get him to help the Raider cause with unnecessary penalties.

So remember Raiders, go for the Suh Laces.
