Sunday was a very good start to a season; in fact, I had a great football weekend! The Michigan Wolverines won, the Lions won, and the Ohio State Acorns lost.Happy birthday, me!
Here are great things we saw last Sunday that we need to keep seeing for continued success.

- 4 wide receivers the Detroit Lions could still look to acquire this offseason
- Stafford keeps playing BIG. Stafford is the league’s highest paid player. He had the pick six,but after that played a spectacular game, especially as the game went on. Stafford looked every bit the part of an MVP candidate. He shouldn’t have to throw 41 times, but he’s the franchise.
- Front seven pressure. The defensive line was tough and they annoyed Carson Palmer, the Arizona Cardinals quarterback, all day. Palmer threw three picks, one of which came back for a score. They need Anthony Zettel, Ziggy Ansah, and Co. to continue their overachieving ways.
- Big plays, in general. The aforementioned three interceptions, Matt Prater‘s long field goal, combined with some big pass plays to Kenny Golladay put that game away. Every draft pick contributed except for Teez Tabor. We made the big plays. That has to continue.
