Detroit Lions: The Biggest Winners, Losers in Week 2 Loss to San Francisco 49ers

Well, after two weeks of the 2012 NFL season, the Detroit Lions have already seen their first win and loss of the season.

Undoubtedly, this was a game both of these teams wanted to win, and it turned out almost exactly the way most thought it would. It was defensive, gritty, ugly at times, and featured long drives and plenty yeoman's work in the ground game.

And the 49ers came out on top by about a touchdown, which was also pretty much exactly as expected.

This one stings, and it doesn't help remove the stigma that the Lions can't beat good teams. The Lions didn't play particularly well in this one, which makes any attempts to find positives rather taxing.
