The Lions finally show their fangs

Fluke or no fluke, the Detroit Lions sit on top of the NFC North tied for first place with the defending Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers. Never in a million year would I ever think I’d write that sentence but it’s finally here. With pro bowl type production from 2009’s first overall draft pick Matthew Stafford, a newfound swagger on the defensive side due to 2010’s second overall pick, Ndamukong Suh¬†and “Megatron” himself, Calvin Johnson, on pace to break the single season touchdown record, it’s tough not put the Lions up there with Packers. Yes, we are only a quarter of the way through the season but they have already shown they can win big but also come back from behind so I’m feeling good about this team. I expect an 11-5 or maybe even a 12-4 season if they keep this play up.
