One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Defense pulls together

 The defense really came together on Sunday in the 19-14 win over the Redskins despite the fact they were without two starters — defensive end Cliff Avril (hamstring) and linebacker Ernie Sims (shoulder). On top of that they started three rookies with DeAndre Levy notching his first NFL start.  He joined defensive tackle Sammie Hill and safety Louis Delmas, rookies who have started all three games. The Lions’ defense held the Redskins to zero rushing yards in the first half and just 65 overall. Clinton Portis had 12 carries for just 42 yards. They’ll need to continue to improve to have a chance to beat the Bears in Chicago on Sunday. — PAULA PASCHE
