It figures that the Detroit Lions would be the first team in N.F.L. history to win consecutive games after trailing by at least 20 points in each. After all, once a team has resurrected itself from a 0-16 season, come-from-behind victories are just microcosms of a much bigger rebuilding job.

The Detroit Lions are 4-0 for the first time in 31 years, but they aren’t ready to call themselves playoff-bound yet.

“It’s way too (early),” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “I said before, I don’t even know when the playoffs start. We got off to a good start first four games. We have a lot of work to do.”

The Detroit Lions are undefeated. And it’s already October. The team had a big 34-30 win on the road at Dallas Sunday after it had appeared early in the game that it was back to the business of old for the Lions.
