After one week of play, the Lions’ running attack ranks 19 out of the 32 NFL teams. That not particularly good, but it’s a position we can live with even if this team has playoff or (gasp) Super Bowl aspirations.

With their passing game mired in a deep slump, the Chiefs might prefer their next game be against an opponent that plays soft coverage and favors a bend-but-don’t-break philosophy.

No such luck. They get the Lions on Sunday in Detroit, where Gunther Cunningham runs the defense.

Many expected the Kansas City Chiefs to build on last season’s postseason appearance, but they seemed to take a step back in their season opener.

Regrouping could prove all the more difficult without one of their best defensive players.

With Eric Berry out for the season, the Chiefs look to put their humiliating loss behind them as they visit the Detroit Lions, who try to open 2-0 for the first time in four seasons Sunday.
