Detroit went into Washington and came away a 27-20 winner. It marked the Lions' first win as the visiting team in Washington, a string that dates back to Nov. 26, 1939. 

There was a lot to like from the Lions performance, but there were also several areas that need improvement. Matthew Stafford and the passing offense earned strong grades, while it was not a good day in terms of run-blocking or kick-returning. 

The Lions are now 2-1 and have vanquished one of the most inglorious streaks in professional sports history. While I'm often a harsh judge, the big win gives these grades a decided upward curve.
