Something to build on
While there are no moral victories in the NFL, at least the Lions have something to build on after their 27-13 loss to Minnesota on Sunday. Detroit finally played well in the first half. Its a start. Last week they were down 14-0 to the Saints early on and could never dig out. That was the M.O. last season too. These Lions (0-2) have a long way to go, but we saw a spark of something on Sunday. They have to put frustration aside this week and figure out how to play two solid halves of football before they step on Ford Field on Sunday to face the Washington Redskins.
Of course the Redskins (1-1) are a frustrated bunch too. They beat the lowly Rams 9-7 on Sunday, but couldnt score a touchdown. They were inside the Rams 11-yard line four times and failed to cross the goal line. PAULA PASCHE
