Blogs > Lions Lowdown

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.


Numbers explain it

Here’s a stat that explains why the Lions have won just two of their first 12 games. While they have outscored opponents 74-72 in the first quarter, it’s downhill from there.

In the second quarter they’re been outscored 118-53 and in the third 85-31. It’s not quite as bad in the fourth where the opponents own an 83-48 edge. It all adds up to losses.

After the loss at Cincinnati coach Jim Schwartz was asked what was up with his third-quarter woes. He had no answer. It won’t get any easier going up against the Ravens’ tough defense on Sunday at Baltimore.
