Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals: Takeaways from Detroit's 25-21 Loss

The Detroit Lions traveled to the desert with visions of payback in their heads on Sunday. Last year, the Cardinals annihilated a lifeless Lions team 38-10 in Week 15, the low point of a miserable season in the Motor City. 

The Lions were much more competitive this time around. In fact, the visitors led most of the game before a late rally by Arizona overcame the Lions by a score of 25-21.

My notes for this game appear schizophrenic. There were so many things that Detroit did well, and some players really stood out for playing strong games. Yet I also have several entries where the tone gets dark, like Black Sabbath coming on the radio after The Mamas and The Papas. Unfortunately, in the end, the negatives trumped the positives.

Read on to find out the biggest takeaways from the Lions loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2.
