Detroit Lions

Thanks to a 2nd quarter meltdown by the Bears, or maybe a 27 point showing from the Lions (whatever logic you want to make), the Lions were able to beat the Bears. The Bears had their number, winning 9 out of the last 10. Reggie Bush went wild, accounting for 173 yards on the day. It’s still scary to think Megatron only had 4 catches for 44 yards and a score, and the Lions put up 40.

The 4-0 Club

The list gets thinner as the weeks go on, but the Broncos, Patriots, Chiefs, Saints, and Seahawks stay unbeaten. After Week 5, it’s likely we see it dwindle down to only a handful. Did you know that teams that start 4-0 have an 81% chance to make the playoffs? All of these teams are playing well.

Cleveland Browns

I gave the Browns a hard time. I mean c’mon, it’s the Browns! Again, trading away your best player must be the secret ingredient. Sadly, that would never help Jacksonville. The Browns were able to beat the in-state rival Bengals, and completely shut them down at that to win 17-6. It’s too early to say this, but ya think there’s a remote possibility the Browns can get over .500 this year with the way they’re playing?
