It was such an exciting game that it should be called the Music City Miracle 2.0. Unfortunately, when it was all said and done the Lions were losers 44-41, and Detroit fans were left to ponder the team's prospects for the remainder of the season.
Detroit was supposed to be a real NFL contender this year—and I'm not just talking about the playoffs. The Lions have their eyes set on the Super Bowl. For a team that made the playoffs last season, that's a realistic goal.
Through three weeks, that goal looks far from attainable, though. The Lions are 1-2 and have been inconsistent on both sides of the ball.
That's not to say they're not a good team. They are. However, there are reasons why they haven't achieved the same success as last season and reasons why they lost to the lowly Titans.
Here they are.
