The Detroit Lions are back to winning.

After a couple of ugly losses, there was a notable lack of costly 15-yard penalties against the Minnesota Vikings—good thing, considering how close that game turned out to be.

Regardless, penalties continue to be an issue for the Lions, and Jim Schwartz continues to be a lightning rod for criticism in that area.

Yesterday, we had a Detroit Lions fan comment on the Golden Nuggets and talk about a potential matchup between the 49ers and Lions in the playoffs. I do have to say, if the 49ers can’t secure the No. 2 seed and have to play an extra playoff game, I would take solace in the fact that it could be against the Lions.

They say the best defense is an offense. But sometimes the best offense is a defense.

The Lions certainly could attest to that. Fresh off two defensive touchdowns against Minnesota, the Lions lead the NFL in defensive scoring with 36 points.
