The 4-0 Detroit Lions are becoming the “New Orleans Saints of the NFC North” lately. Much like the Saints in 2009, most didn’t expect the Lions to preform as well as they have so far. Me being one of them.
It seemed like not so long ago the Lions had their 0-16 season and would never sniff a championship. This season, they are headed towards that goal full steam ahead.
The Lions had a comeback victory from being down 24 points against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, much like they did the previous week against the Minnesota Vikings.
QB Matthew Stafford seems relaxed, confident, and most importantly… healthy. Stafford appears to have settled into his role as a leader of the team leading the Lions on several winning drives.
The Lions will look to remain undefeated and advance to 5-0 when they host the Chicago Bears next Monday in primetime at Ford Field.
