The second quarter started with two Detroit field goals either side of a Matt Forte 53 yard touchdown run and from then on it was all Detroit. The Lions went on to score 21 unanswered points thanks to touchdowns from Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson (Megatron) and Reggie Bush. By halftime the score was 30 – 13 to the Lions and despite a late fight back in garbage time they went on to win 40 -32.
With this win the Lions have taken the lead of the NFC North and it looks like an uphill struggle for Green Bay (1-2) to get anywhere near the playoffs with the strong records of the Lions and Bears.

Granted when you force that many turnovers you should beat a team by more than 3 points and from that you can tell that our offence still needs a little work. I would say it easier to learn defence than offence, once you understand the concept of zone coverage, all your doing is adjusting the area you are covering on each play. I will move now as a few friends / teammates of mine are Ravens fans and they have suffered enough having to live with the loss to Buffalo.
Just think if Peyton Manning had someone like CJ Spiller, Adrian Peterson or Marshawn Lynch to hand the ball off too, they would be unstoppable. The question now everyone wants to know the answer to is can they go unbeaten for the rest of the season?
