Lions vs. Chiefs: Soak up these numbers

ALLEN PARK — By the numbers, the Lions have everything on the Kansas City Chiefs, the opponent for Sunday’s sold-out home opener.

Soak these NFL numbers up:

— The Lions rank fifth in NFL in total offense while the Chiefs rank 18th in total defense.

— Detroit had the 10th best rushing effort, while the Chiefs had 27th best defense against the rush (in other words they stunk).

— The Lions had eight best passing game while the Chiefs had 11th best pass defense.

— Kansas City’s offense was ranked 30th while Detroit’s defense was tied for 12th. The Chiefs ranked 30th in passing offense while the Lion had 11th best pass defense.

— Of course, it was just one week. The Lions beat the Bucs 27-20 and the Chiefs were humiliated at home by the Bills 41-7.
