Scanning the Savanna: What They're Saying about Detroit Lions Victory

It was billed as the first home game of a new era of Detroit Lions football, one without the follies and foolishness and with a healthy quarterback, one who wouldn’t always break the hearts of fans.

Nothing that happened Sunday at Ford Field suggested that isn’t the case.

A few thoughts on the Detroit Lions’ romp over the Kansas City Chiefs:

What it means: The Lions are 2-0 for the first time since 1997 and have won six consecutive regular season games, dating back to last season, for the first time since 1995. Say what you want about the Kansas City Chiefs, who have been outscored by 79 points in two games and lost running back Jamaal Charles in this game to a serious knee injury. But the Lions’ 48-3 dismantling gave them the largest margin of victory in the regular-season history of the franchise. Lions Fever is catching!

It was an official Detroit beat down.

And it should have been. After all the Lions had the lowly Kansas City Chiefs to use as fodder on Sunday afternoon at Ford Field.

It’s early, but the Detroit Lions look scary. Not in a “they could go 0-16″ way, either.

They followed up last week’s road win over Tampa Bay by eviscerating Kansas City 48-3 on Sunday. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford already has passed for 599 yards and seven touchdowns.
