Scanning the Savanna: Detroit Lions Victory Edition

Scanning the Savanna is a daily feature that brings fresh Detroit Lions and NFL related content to your fingertips each morning. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s scan the savanna together.

Upon further review, here’s an analytical breakdown of some of the plays and events that unfolded in the first half of the Detroit Lions’ 34-10 preseason win over the New England Patriots at Ford Field.

Of course Tony Scheffler was penalized for this, because the NFL is just no fun and dancing in the end zone is, apparently, excessive celebration. But it doesn’t matter. When you’re a member of the Detroit Lions and you’re leading the New England Patriots by a score of 17-3, you dance your little butt off.

Matthew Stafford was sharp and Tom Brady struggled.

Stafford threw for 200 yards and two touchdowns in less than a half, leading the Detroit Lions to a 34-10 win over the New England Patriots on Saturday night.

Tom Brady WISHES he were Matthew Stafford. OK? Brady wishes he could humiliate a defense like Stafford did Saturday night. Every Stafford pass was so picture-perfect that NFL Films won’t even desecrate them with a narration.

What? Too much?
