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 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.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
