Bay Area product Jahvid Best is fittingly off to a fast start as a Detroit Lions rookie running back. He has an NFL-leading five touchdowns through two games, including three touchdowns and 232 all-purpose yards in Sunday’s 35-32 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
At 0-2, desperate for a victory, with their passing game demonstrating all the rhythm of a drunken polka band, the Minnesota Vikings are catching the Detroit Lions at just the right time.
