Well, When You Give Up 27 Unanswered Points...

They showed some promise. Matthew Stafford threw his first touchdown pass ever to Calvin Johnson. The Lions were leading 10-0. Then the game happened, and Detroit had no answers.

Nobody had an answer for Adrian Peterson. Or Brett Favre. And when a team scores 27 without any response, the game is lost.

Is there anything to take away from today's game? What, that the margin of defeat was four points fewer today? Sure, except the offense only put up less than half of what they scored last week.

Stafford is still making errant throws. His career TD/INT ratio stands at 1/5. At least he got the ball to TE Brandon Pettigrew today.

Alas, this one's more deflating than last week. It probably has something to do with the season being underway.
